When Mamas are trying to boost or maintain their breast milk supply there are several options for them to achieve greater supply; They can consult a lactation expert, they can pump after nursing and nurse more frequently, and they can brew cups of Rumina’s Abundance, our very own certified organic herbal tea crafted to support milk production.
We turned to Kaya Samantha of Cowichan Doula for more milk boosting options and she did not disappoint! Kaya shared with us this lactation cookie recipe that she makes for her doula clients and we are very excited to try them out!
The following is Kaya’s recipe that contains supply-boosting powers in each mood-lifting bite.
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups large flake (not quick) oats
1/4 cup ground flax meal
1/8 cup chia seeds
1/8 cup hemp hearts
1/8 cup fenugreek seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (shelled and raw/unsalted)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup nuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, baking soda, and eggs together. Add in dry ingredients until just mixed.
Drop by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet before baking for 10 minutes.
Let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to cooling rack.
