Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookie Recipe

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookie Recipe

Dec 12, 2018

As breastfeeding mamas, many of us find that we’re constantly craving sweets! The good news is that there are plenty of ways to get creative and make recipes that will nourish your body while also satisfying your sweet tooth.

We were so inspired by health & wellness coach Carolina Poli, who created a delicious peanut butter & chocolate chip lactation cookie recipe using our Majka Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder! Keep reading to learn how to make this tasty recipe and learn about its health benefits:

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookie Recipe

 Ingredients:
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup Majka Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 medium ripe bananas (if the bananas are not medium you might use 4 small bananas)
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp maple or date syrup
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy chocolate chips
  • For the topping: ½ banana, sliced + ⅓ tbsp date syrup

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease 8 slots of a standard muffin tin with coconut oil.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients - almond flour, Majka powder, and baking powder. Set mixture aside.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients - mash the bananas and mix with the peanut butter and date syrup.
  5. In a large bowl, mix the dry and wet ingredients and add the chocolate chips.
  6. Fill 8 of the muffin cups in the greased muffin tray ¾ full of the muffin batter.
  7. Top the batter with the sliced bananas (mix the sliced bananas with the date syrup, as this will prevent the bananas to dry out after baking).
  8. Bake the muffins in the oven for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick pulls clean.
  9. Set aside to cool and enjoy!

 

Health Benefits

Not only are these cookies super tasty, but they’re also packed with nutritional benefits!

Protein

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.

Good Fats

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.

Lactation Support

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.
