Molly's Lactation Cookies!

February 13, 2018


This week I'm sharing a sweet (and nourishing) treat that I regularly make for families!

Edible treats abound in February. Sweet is a grounding flavor and beneficial for new mamas.  But make sure that you're consuming top-notch fuel, not straight sugar, to power healing from birth and making milk for your baby.

I once had a client who ate a bag of marshmallows for dinner.  Bad decision. 

These cookies are big on nutrition, small on sugar, and oh-so-soul-satisfying.  Partners and big kids love them too!

(Bonus: you can eat cookies with one hand!)
