Lose Baby Weight - Healthy Sugar Free Lactation Cookies

While it might look like a long list of ingredients, each of them plays a role in supporting you and your baby.

  • Oats: these contain a trifecta of goodness for breastfeeding mums. There’s protein, fibre, and also iron in this pantry cupboard staple.
  • Linseed Meal: your growing baby needs the fibre and omega-3 found in this product. You’ll find it in the health food aisle or at a health food shop. Substitute with flaxseed meal if needed.
  • Brewer’s Yeast: this is the main ingredient when it comes to boosting your milk supply so don’t skip it, try to swap it, or skimp on it. While is has a strong taste, this is evened out with the sweetness from the apple and honey. Brewer’s yeast gives you a B vitamin hit, as well as iron and protein. Not only is it said to help with milk supply, it is also rumoured to help fight depression and fatigue. Get yours from the health food shop.
  • Apple: using this naturally sweet fruit means you don’t need to add table sugar to your cookies. Simply peel and steam your apple before blending it to a puree. It’s also a great first food for bub when they start solids.
  • Coconut Oil:  another source of essential fatty acids which support brain development.
  • Nuts: these protein power houses help to keep you fuller for longer, meaning you are less likely to want to reach for sweets between meals.
  • Egg: the choline found in eggs can support your baby’s brain development. It’s also choc full of protein and healthy fats for mum.

These cookies are perfectly fine for your older kids or other family members to eat too. But feel free to hide them away if you want to eat them all yourself!
