Dubbed “Mommy’s Superfood HPB” by Cookie Fix, the frozen lactation cookie dough contains peanut butter, oats, chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips, flax, chia, walnuts, coconut oil (instead of butter), and Brewer’s yeast.
Brewer’s yeast, oats, and flax are all proven to increase milk supply. Used in beer production, Brewer’s yeast also contains protein, B vitamins, iron, selenium, and other minerals; some also believe it helps combat the baby blues and fatigue. Oats provide fiber, iron, and protein, while flax contains healthy fats and enzymes.
At the suggestion of new moms, Cookie Fix simply added Brewer’s yeast to the existing Superfood Healthy PB bar to create true lactation cookies. According to owner Amy Jason, they hear rave reviews about the cookie. “Best of all, it’s delicious and full of nutrition, not just a cookie with Brewer’s yeast and empty calories,” Amy says. “New moms have their hands full, and to be able to eat a nutritious cookie that is filling and can increase lactation is wonderful for them.” One challenge? “They have to keep their husbands out of it because they are yummy enough for anyone to like!” Amy says.
How to Buy
Amy recommends calling ahead to reserve Mommy’s Superfood HPB frozen dough to go. “Demand has been so strong that we can run out quickly,” she says.
