Disclaimer: This post will discuss, very frankly, the action of breastfeeding. While I won’t include any pictures, if the idea of a mother feeding her baby grosses you out, you probably shouldn’t read any more. Anyway, while browsing Pinterest the other day, I saw a recipe for something called “lactation brownies”. At first, I admit I was grossed out (I thought they were brownies made with breast milk, or baby formula….yuck!), but when I actually read about it, I found that it was something completely different. It’s a treat for breastfeeding mamas that help increase milk supply! How cool is that? Check out this post at Coweta Fayette Families for the recipe (and why it works):
1 Box of your Favorite Brownie Mix
1 Egg (2 if you prefer your brownies more cake like)
4 TBSP Brewer’s Yeast (You can find this on Amazon or at your local vitamin store…I haven’t had good luck finding it at my local grocery)
2 TBSP Flaxseed meal (I found my bag in the organic aisle at Kroger)
Water/Oil according to brownie mix directions
1 extra TBSP water
Combine dry ingredients and then add the oil, egg, and water. Mix until combined and cook according to box directions. Super simple and perfect for busy, exhausted moms.
