If you are a mama that is breastfeeding, we’ve got something that can help you boost milk supply! We hooked up with our good friends over at Cookie Fix to learn all about their Mommy’s Superfood Healthy PB frozen dough. These cookies are wildly delicious and there is real science behind how these cookies can help with your milk supply… and feed those post partum cookie cravings!
To all of those new mommies out there, Cookie Fix not only has some yummy treats for you to enjoy pre-baby, but they took the advice of some customers and have created a cookie just for you! Mommy’s Superfood Healthy PB frozen dough to go is a dough similar to one of their most popular cookies, Healthy PB, which has no flour. Cookie Fix took that dough and replaced the butter with coconut oil, loaded it up with peanut butter, oats, brewer’s yeast, flax, chai seeds, walnuts, and some dark chocolate. The oats and brewer’s yeast help boost your milk supply, energy, and mood; and the chocolate just helps with everything!
Why are these bars great for lactation? Well let’s start with oats. They contain saponins, an immune-stimulating compound that may help increase levels of prolactin, a vital hormone for milk production. Oats are also packed with protein, vitamins, and minerals that help support all the breastfeeding and calorie burning your body does while feeding your baby. The second milk boosting ingredient is ground flax. Flax contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. While omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are necessary for everyone, these nutrients in a mother’s milk are essential for a baby’s developing immune system. The last ingredient is Brewer’s Yeast. This has a high content of vitamin B, chromium, iron, and selenium; key ingredients for new moms who are breastfeeding. It also has been said to help decrease fatigue, which all of us moms know, we definitely can use all the energy we can get!! For any and all mamas out there, Cookie Fix has many awesome cookie variety in frozen dough to go, ready to bake at home for you and your little ones! Some customer favorites are First Date Chocolate Chip, Salted Dark Chocolate Caramel, and M&M Chocolate Chip for the kids! They have something to make everyone happy!
