Don't let the name of these cookies scare you. They DON'T contain breast milk. What they do contain, that's out of the ordinary for cookies, is flax seed meal, Brewer's Yeast and thick cut oats. All of which are super incredibly beneficial for Mom's that are breast feeding! This is the perfect desert to add to a post-partum dinner delivery, too!
Why are those three ingredients so magical?
Flax seed meal is full of healthy benefits like omega-3s. Thick Cut Oatmeal (Thick cut oats are similar to the Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, but MUCH thicker and filled with even more iron) and Brewer's Yeast (both are found at Sunflower Market or Whole Foods)are galactogogues, which have been linked to increased milk production. There is no scientific study on the ingredients used, but that does not mean they don't help with milk production. I personally have experienced great benefits after eating just one cookie!
I've had friends and family try these cookies and they get rave reviews! Who knew something so delicious could be so good for you, too!!!
