Lactation Biscuits - Biscuits to entice your milk to come down

I’ll admit I’m quite intrigued by the use of Lactation Biscuits.

I’ll leave it up to the breastfeeding Mums to tell me if they really work or not but if you just enjoy nutritious and delicious cookies, then this is worth a try!

Suitable for the whole family to enjoy. Healthy, and delicious – the secret ingredient is meant to be the brewers yeast!

  1. Mix oats, coconut, sugar, flour, brewer’s yeast, ginger, fennel, and dates in a large bowl.
  2. Butter the baking trays and heat oven to 150 degrees.
  3. Heat butter, water and golden syrup in a saucepan, stirring, until the butter melts.
  4. Remove from heat and quickly stir in bicarbonate of soda until light and frothy.
  5. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients, mixing quickly and thoroughly.
  6. Roll the mixture into dry balls the size of walnuts and place on tray, allowing room for spreading.
