Making your own Lactation Cookies at home?
Lactation Cookie Recipes are all over the internet. Essentially they are modified chocolate chip cookie with oats, brewer's yeast and sometimes flax seeds. Because of the white flour, white sugar and lack of essential minerals, they aren't much healthier than a standard cookie. The real power of these cookies is that once you've made them, you have a fast snack to help take in the extra calories and fat you need. Be sure to eat them after a healthful meal though to balance the impact of the sugar so you can try to avoid feeling tired a few minutes later (that's certainly not what you need when you have a little one to chase around)!
The ingredients you won't find in a typical Lactation Cookie recipe that are in Yummy Mummy Cookies include: fenugreek, nettles, pumpkin seeds, kelp, hemp seeds, blessed thistle, clover, chia seeds and poppy seeds just to name a few.
Of course, if you don't have time to bake and you want a nourishing snack that will help heal your postpartum body as well as support milk production, order Yummy Mummy Lactation Cookies online now!
