Find A Healthier Cookie Alternative

Chewy Cookie Recipes to Increase Breast Milk

During both my pregnancies and breastfeeding journeys, I always craved sweet treats, especially if they had chocolate. However, I loved to reach for Oreos. I needed to find a healthier cookie alternative that also increased lactation. I went searching for cookie recipes and found quite a few that will help to increase your breastmilk. Of course, I would make all the ones with chocolate chips, but I know not everyone loves chocolate.
