Milk Dust Recipes

Breastfeeding has a funny way of making new mommies obsessed with cookies. Cookies, brownies, ice cream and all the sugary foods really. Milk Dust is amazing for combating those cravings, but we also believe you can have healthy, nutrient-dense cookies too.

Here at Milk Dust we love cookies. We think cookies are a great way to get in some needed nutrients, satisfy cravings and even boost your milk supply. Peanut butter cookies are an even better way to do this! These peanut butter cookies in particular are super simple to make. They take just a few ingredients, are gluten-free, healthy and full of the good stuff.

If you are still pregnant, make these for when baby arrives! If you know someone who just had a baby, make some for them!

Gingerbread cookies are amazing, but all the sugar, fat, carbs and lack of nutrients aren’t amazing for encouraging milk supply. A gingerbread lactation shake is a great option to help curb those cravings for gingerbread cookies, while also nourishing your body and keeping you on-track for increasing milk supply.

Why is Milk Dust so GREEN?

Milk Dust offers super foods such as chlorella and spirulina which are very rich in phytonutrients. These make a bright green color. There are also blueberries and spinach, making the color sometimes more of a deep grey/green. Green is a GOOD color. It means nutrients, so we are okay with the green color. We find it gives Milk Dust character.

Course: Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: American
Keyword: lactation bar, lactation recipe, pumpkin bar
Servings: 12

Equipment

  • Mixer

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Birch's Paleo Pancake Mix or Paleo Baking Flour
  • 1 scoop Milk Dust Lactation Powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 can Pumpkin puree (not pie)
  • 3 Eggs
  • 6 packets Stevia or sweetener of choice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1-3 tbsp milk of choice if needed
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips or chocolate chunks for topping

Instructions

  • Mix dry ingredients in large bowl and set aside. Use a mixer to blend together wet ingredients including eggs, pumpkin, stevia and honey. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. You may need to add some extra milk to help mix, depending on the flour you use. This is a thicker dough, rather than batter that you have to spread over a greased baking 8×5 or square baking pan. Pour dough into greased pan and spread out evenly. Top with chocolate chips or chopped chocolate chunks. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until fork comes out clean. Makes 12-16 bars.

Notes

These bars are actually gluten-free and full of healthy nutrients for postpartum mamas! No added sugar, low in carbs and high in protein! 

Remember, the “batter” is thicker on these. Here’s a photo that illustrates the thickness, so you know its okay to smooth it out into your pan.

Feel free to top with nuts, apple chunks, chocolate chips, or chocolate chunks like we did. It makes a big difference.

Bake, and keep an eye on the edges, as those cook faster. They taste fabulous both warm and cold the next day. You can eat them for breakfast or as dessert. Warm up with some honey or whipped cream on top, and a sprinkle of sea salt, and it won’t disappoint.

Better yet, this is LOW SUGAR! Yet it tastes so good and sweet. With all the benefits of Milk Dust, pumpkin and eggs, we promise this is a healthy dessert or breakfast to ease those sugar cravings!

Lactation brownies are awesome snacks or treats for breastfeeding mamas to increase milk supply and satisfy sugar cravings. But, many of the lactation brownies out there are full of sugar and fat, which is not good for losing any extra baby weight.

Of course a delicious brownie every so often is more than acceptable, but what if you could have a delicious brownie for breakfast every morning? Basically, this brownie recipe is so healthy, low-sugar, low-carb and nutrient-dense, you can have it anytime you want. You can even eat the entire recipe for around 350 calories if you really wanted to. These are perfect for those times when you just can’t stop eating the brownies.

Because there’s a scoop of our Milk Dust in this recipe, there is added protein, which helps make these brownies super filling as well. The protein will actually help keep you from filling hungry again soon after eating these, as well as limiting how many you can actually eat without feeling stuffed. Feeling full is one of the fastest ways to get rid of a sugar craving.

Go ahead, eat these up and reap the benefits to your milk supply and nutrition.
