These 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
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)
- Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C.
- In a large bowl, mash the bananas into a fine paste using a fork.
- Add the eggs and whisk together until well incorporated.
- Add in the Greek yogurt, honey, and vanilla extract, and mix.
- Mix flour, oatmeal, baking soda, and optional flaxseed and brewers yeast.
- Pour the flour mixture over the wet mixture.
- Using a spatula, fold the wet and dry ingredients together until the dry bits of the flour have disappeared.
- Coat blueberries in a sprinkle of flour. Then fold into the batter.
- Using a medium ice cream scoop, portion the batter evenly into a lightly greased muffin tin.
- Bake for 20 minutes, until the muffins have risen and set.
- 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)
- Brewers Yeast
- Honey (raw is preferred)
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 🙂
