I remember the early days of breastfeeding and how hungry I was all the time! It just seemed like I couldn’t get the food in fast enough. As a result, I went on the search for healthy “snacky” recipes that I could whip up at home, so that I had things on hand to eat at any time of day. This recipe was one of my favourites!nPlus, it’s packed full of ingredients that are helpful to milk supply, and it’s low in sugar and fat. Here’s my recipe for Chocolate Fudge Lactation CookiesnIngredients: 2/3 cup rolled oatsn1/3 cup whole ground flaxseedn1/2 cup honeyn4 tbsp. cocoa powdern1 tbsp. brewers yeastn1.5 tsp vanilla extractn1/4 cup light olive oiln2 egg whitesnMethod: Stir together the rolled oats, flaxseed, cocoa powder, and brewers yeast until well-combined. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites and beat in the oil, honey and vanilla. Pour into the dry ingredients, stir to thoroughly combine and cover and place in the fridge for several hours. Preheat oven to 180C. Line trays with baking paper. Drop the batter by the tablespoon onto the trays and then flatten with your hand or a fork, until the cookies are 1/2 an inch thick. Bake for 10-12 minutes until firm. Recipe makes about 12 cookies.n—————————————————————–nYou can make so many different flavoured cookies – apple and cinnamon, oat and sultana, choc chip… The list goes on. And, the great thing is that you can enjoy these biccies guilt-free and the oats, flaxseed and brewers yeast are said to be great boosters for milk supply. I can’t tell you how many nights I had one of these during a 3am feed! They’re so handy to have next to you as a snack – remember, you gotta keep yourself nourished so you can keep your baby healthy. (And even if you’re not breastfeeding, these biccies are a healthy snack alternative, so enjoy)!
