Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookie Recipe
Not only are these cookies super tasty, but they’re also packed with nutritional benefits!
Protein is an important part of any diet, and it’s an essential source of fuel for pregnant and breastfeeding moms. The cells in our bodies need protein to perform many functions, including energy support, hormone production, maintaining muscle, supporting immune health, and more.
For all of these reasons, it’s recommended that we consume protein with every meal, which makes these lactation cookies the perfect grab-and-go snack! The peanut butter and lactation powder in this recipe are both great sources of protein. Our Majka Nourishing Lactation Powder is designed to sustain your body and keep you fuller, longer, as it contains 13 grams of protein per serving.
The peanut butter in this recipe is an amazing source of good fat. It’s so important to incorporate good fats (unsaturated fats) into your diet because they provide your body with the fuel it needs. Don’t let the myths out there fool you--fat isn’t something to be afraid of!
Prebiotics & Probiotics
Majka’s Nourishing Lactation Powder is easy to digest thanks to its prebiotic and probiotic blend. When developing our formula, this was a priority, as many protein powders on the market don’t take this into consideration. Our prebiotic and probiotic blend boosts mom and baby’s immune systems, eliminates toxins, and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Last but certainly not least, this recipe is a great sweet treat for nursing moms who are looking for a boost of lactation support! Our Majka Nourishing Lactation Powder is rich in nutrients your body heavily relies on at this time. Fenugreek, organic ginger root, turmeric root extract, and other natural ingredients found in Majka’s scientifically formulated lactation blend can have positive effects on breast milk supply.
