Milk Producing Oatmeal Balls
Make more milk with these milk making balls. Yes, laugh, that is what my youngest calls them, milk making balls.
I am always hungry, this breastfeeding hunger is “killer”. I make this in a big batch to last about one week.
These milk producing oatmeal balls are quick to make, last me just about all week, and my kids can also eat them. No, it doesn’t make them produce milk, that would be nuts. It is a great easy to make a snack and is healthy too.
Milk Producing Oatmeal Balls are great for:
- Want to be able to add calories
- Eat something healthy
- Eat a quick snack
- Increase breast milk production
- Easy to make
- Not messy
- No need to bake
This can also be a great on the go breakfast too. You can easily eat them while you are nursing the baby or pumping your milk.

Substitutions And Add Ins
Things I have added in are Craisins, dried fruit pieces ( I cut them really small ), I have added yogurt and other things, like M&M’s, mini chocolate chips and mini marshmallows cut in half too. I didn’t measure those, my eyes did.
For the coconut milk, you can use any milk like almond milk, hemp milk or another milk of your choosing.
Do Not Leave Out That Butter! If left out, these will crumble, be messy and basically, the butter adds another healthy fat you want and need.
Make a large batch of balls and freeze some for later. Make some for the new mom or mom who just had her baby. My baby is eleven months old and I still eat these just about daily.
I know others will say to you they aren’t sure if this really works or not, but I know for a fact that when I haven’t had these in a while my milk isn’t as plentiful.
I have been in childcare since 1986! Some college courses I have passed are Infant, Child and Teens Growth & Development, Nutrition for Infants, Children & Teens. Psychology, I have taken other related certificates as well.
I had my first child when I was 18 and love helping parents with the support and resources they need. I do not sugarcoat life and I solve problems without emotions. Thank you for joining the community.
