Well, lactation + cookies are two words I never thought I would write about here! After bringing our little lady home from the hospital post C Section, I started looking into how I could boost my milk supply to get her back up to her birth weight. Several mums had recommended making cookies that were packed full of ingredients that were known to boost supply rather than taking supplements so I figured I’d give it a try! I combined a few recipes that I found and have baked them off several times now to finally tweak the recipe to perfection. These taste really yummy, and the dough freezes well so you can bake them off as you desire!
** An important note: These are totally fine for non-lactating people to eat 😉 The Brewers Yeast and oats will help nursing mamas produce more milk (In fact the day I made these I pumped almost double what I was!). I’ve seen other recipes that have more Brewers Yeast in them but find they give a slightly bitter aftertaste.
