Lactation Cookies, or Galactagogues, mothers milk makers, milkin cookies.



I know what you're probably thinking: lactation cookies?! Really,?

Hey, I'm willing to give anything a try at this point if it might help us, even if it's an old wives' tale I read about on the internet. I've done it before and I'll do it again . It's not like this is going to turn you into a milk cow if you're not in a position in life where you'd like to increase your milk supply. But for those of us looking to promote healthy lactation, why not, right? Even though the recipe calls for some slightly unusual ingredients, these actually taste really good. Like an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie with a slightly nutty extra kick
These are super yummy and help boost your milk supply! The recommended "dose" is 4 cookies per day (good luck limiting yourself to that many). This recipe makes a lot - about 60-70 cookies - so it can be halved if necessary.
