On the Menu: Mama’s Milk Cookies

All I have to say is – I never thought I would be writing a post about lactation cookies, but alas it’s happening. After getting quite a few requests from friends and readers to post my go-to recipe, it felt right to share this delicious cookie recipe. While I’m not sure if these actually help me with milk production, the ingredients are all recommended for helping milk supply. And who doesn’t love an excuse to eat cookies? Whether you are breastfeeding or pumping, one thing is for certain – you’ll be wanting to snack a TON and why can’t it be something that satisfies your sweet tooth and helps your production of milk?

Hope you all enjoy this recipe. And let me know if you have any suggestions on altering it!
