Easy Lactation Muffins
These easy lactation muffins are a great way to help ease the worry every nursing mother faces, a low breast milk supply. There are many factors that can affect how much breast milk is available for the baby and pumping. One way to help increase your milk supply is by eating foods that are beneficial for lactation. Often times new moms don’t have much time for eating let alone eating healthy. These easy lactation muffins can be made in advance (and even frozen), so when hunger strikes they are ready to eat and enjoy. An added bonus is you get to reward yourself with a sweet treat that is also good for you and baby. So take a few minutes to whip up these muffins or if you are lucky get your sister, friend, mother or husband to do it while you nap.
2 Muffin Mixes plus ingredients called for on muffin mix. (I used Betty Crocker pouches that made 6 muffins. If your muffin mix makes 12 then you will only need one.)
4 Tbsp Flax Seed
4 Tbsp Brewer’s Yeast
1/2 cup quick oats
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease the wells of muffin/cupcake pan.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the muffin mix with the ingredients called for on the muffin mix.
Add the brewer’s yeast, flax seed, and quick oats to the muffin mix, making sure to combine the ingredients together.
Pour muffin mix into muffin/cupcake pan, dividing the mix between the 12 wells.
Bake in oven on 425 degrees for 5 minutes and then lower the temperature to 375 degrees and continue baking for 12-15 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool.
