Chocolate Hazelnut Lactation Cookies Recipe!
I am now up to my 7th batch of these lactation cookies and they are amazing on so many levels. Firstly they taste SO SO good! They also are full of nutrition, are really easy to make and most importantly they actually help increase milk production for breastfeeding.
I initially started making lactation cookies when my little one was 1 week old and we needed to get her weight back up so I needed to be producing as much milk as I could. Now I find them really useful for those early evening cluster feeds when milk levels are naturally lower and baby is needing to store up for the night.
If your not a fan of either chocolate or hazelnuts, just leave them out. The recipe is still delicious without and these two ingredients have nothing to do with milk production, they just taste yum!!!
If you are not breastfeeding, this recipe is also delicious and full of amazing nutrients… and don’t worry you will not produce milk if you eat lactation cookies!
