Super Easy, Yummy Lactation Muffins

wp-image-309822600These lactation muffins are super easy to make. You can mix in other toppings as well, they don’t have to be blueberries. You can make these in a regular muffin tin, but I prefer the mini muffins as they cook up better and they are a nice bite-sized snack! I’ve added flax-seed and brewers yeast to the recipe to boost milk supply as well. I will be trying to make another batch of these on Sunday with a new substitution of almond flour instead of whole wheat!!

Update: I tried it with Almond flour, and they taste great but the first batch didn’t turn out. I added about 1/8th to 1/4th cup whole wheat flour in. I also cleaned and re-greased my pans because my husband overly greased the first batch. 

3 ripe bananas

2 eggs

½ c full-fat Greek yogurt

1/3 c honey

1 tsp vanilla

¾ c whole wheat flour

¾ c oatmeal

1 tsp baking soda

1 Tbsp ground flax-seed (optional)

1 Tbsp Brewer’s Yeast (optional)

Fresh blueberries

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas into a fine paste using a fork.
  3. Add the eggs and whisk together until well incorporated.
  4. Add in the Greek yogurt, honey, and vanilla extract, and mix.
  5. Mix flour, oatmeal, baking soda, and optional flaxseed and brewers yeast.
  6. Pour the flour mixture over the wet mixture.
  7. Using a spatula, fold the wet and dry ingredients together until the dry bits of the flour have disappeared.
  8. Coat blueberries in a sprinkle of flour. Then fold into the batter.
  9. Using a medium ice cream scoop, portion the batter evenly into a lightly greased muffin tin.
  10. Bake for 20 minutes, until the muffins have risen and set.
  11. Remove from the tray and serve.

WHY THESE ARE GREAT!

There are several foods here that help boost milk supply!

  • Almonds (if you substitute the whole flour out)
  • Bananas
  • Blueberries
  • Brewers Yeast
  • Eggs
  • Flaxseed
  • Honey (raw is preferred)
  • Oatmeal
  • Yogurt

Basically, this entire recipe is JAM-PACKED with boobie goodness! I hope you and your family enjoy them as much as my family has 🙂

PS. As a great treat, I’ve even subbed in dark chocolate chips 🙂
