Lactation cookies, or "Boob Bikkits", if you will.

Breastfeeding sure is a tricky business and even though it is seemingly the most natural thing in the world there are times when it doesn't seem that way! These lactation cookies, or boob bikkits, helped me out when I needed to increase my milk supply and in conjunction with upping your water intake and other supplements can be quite effective!

Lactation cookies, or "Boob Bikkits" as my husband says!


INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 cup almond meal
150gm coconut oil
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp agave syrup
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
3 tbsp water
1 egg
1 tbsp vanilla bean paste
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp brewers yeast
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup dried blueberries

METHOD

Combine the flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl and set aside. Cream the coconut oil and sugar in a bowl, then add the agave, vanilla bean paste, cinnamon, and egg; combine well. Add the flour, almond meal, baking powder, the flaxseed and water, the brewers yeast, and the salt and mix well. Finally, stir through the oats, almonds, and blueberries.

Shape the mixture in to little balls with your hands and place on a lined baking tray, flatten slightly. Bake at 175ºC for about 10 minutes or until the top of the cookies begins to turn golden. They will still seem a little squishy to the touch but they will continue to cook and harden up a bit after you remove them from the oven and overcooking them will result in a dry cookie.

Feel free to substitute the dried blueberries for just about anything that will go in a cookie! Just don't substitute the brewers yeast for any other yeast because that is really the active ingredient. You can find it at health food stores. The oats, almonds, almond meal, and flax are all also useful to help boost milk supply. If you don't have agave then I would suggest adding a little bit more sugar as the sweetness offsets the bitterness of the yeast.

Hopefully these Boob Bikkit lactation cookies work out for you too!
