Looking for a way to increase your breastmilk supply? Or are you just on the hunt for a scrumptious cookie recipe? Lactation cookies solve both problems!

Sound too good to be true? Well, even if these cookies don’t help with increasing your breastmilk supply, they’ve got a heap of healthy ingredients in them that will make you feel less guilty for snacking.

Here’s a great recipe from Jessica Merchant of How Sweet Eats.

The magic lies in the key ingredients, which are oats, brewer's yeast, and flax seed.

Oats are a great source of fiber, protein, and iron, according to this article on Livestrong. Low iron levels may lead to anemia, and therefore decreased milk supply.

Brewer’s yeast contains helpful B vitamins, according to this article by Very Well. It also contains chromium, which may help lower blood sugar levels.

Flaxseed is a great provider of the omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid, which is crucial to brain development and function, according to this article by the SFGate.

If you’re not sure about making your own cookies, the team over at Milkmakers sells lactation cookies, lactation cookie mix, and lactation tea!
