Oats might seem boring, but with a few twists, they can be transformed into a delicious healthy snack with lactation benefits — perfect for new moms! We love the combo of oats and our Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder, so we whipped up a tasty recipe for Majka Granola.

This isn’t your ordinary oatmeal, and it’s perfect not only for breakfast but for a quick pick-me-up throughout the day too. Finding time to cook healthy balanced meals is so difficult as a new mom, so these are perfect to make in a big batch and just grab and go from the fridge.

Benefits:

Keeps you full

A powerful fiber called beta-glucan is found abundantly in oats, and this fiber helps keep you full! Beta-glucan delays the time it takes for your stomach to empty food and may also release a hormone that makes you feel more satiated. They are also good for your digestion and high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

This recipe is also full of healthy fats in coconut products, chia seeds, and nuts, which have been proven to help keep you full as well. All nuts contain healthy fats, and almonds have the most fiber per serving which keeps you feeling satisfied.

Nuts, almond butter, and Majka protein powder are all rich in protein. The fiber in this recipe helps you feel full now, and the protein will keep you feeling full later on too.

Energy boost

Chia seeds are widely renowned for being a superfood, and they’re so easy to sneak into recipes! We added them to this granola because they are high in fiber and give a lasting energy boost throughout the day.

Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides, a unique form of healthy fat that provides an energy boost. It can also boost metabolism and promote good weight management!

Lactation support

For new moms, every little bit helps. Our Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder boosts lactation with an expert blend of prebiotics, probiotics, plant based digestive enzymes, protein, and more.

These ingredients work together to support your postpartum health and support lactation keeping mama and baby happy and healthy!
