LACTATION COOKIES & TEA + GIVEAWAY!
Hi Friends! Welcome back to the blog. I love tea and make a cup every single day. I also love cookies, is there anything better than a fresh warm cookie (or 3!) from the oven? Even before my husband and I found out we were pregnant I was aware and fond of a company called Munchkin. I have seen so many mommas rave about and use their products. That being said, I am so thrilled to partner with Munchkin on today’s post blog and for a giveaway to help celebrate the expecting mommas in the HGG Community!
As an expecting Mama myself, I am so excited about Munchkin’s Milkmakers Lactation Cookies, Baking Mixes & Tea.
Milkmakers Lactation Teas are made with quality, natural, USDA Organic ingredients, are naturally caffeine-free and really tasty! Munchkin suggests drinking 1 – 2 cups per day to help increase milk supply.
If you’re a Mom looking to learn how to increase your milk supply, Milkmakers offers a delicious solution. Made with traditional ingredients that naturally help boost breast milk supply, Milkmakers pre-made cookies and cookie mixes are a nutritious option for nursing moms. Key ingredients include brewer’s yeast, oats, and flax seed. These cookies (chocolate chip, and salted chocolate caramel flavors) are even safe while pregnant which means if you’re a planner like me – you can try them even before you little one arrives and then stock up so you’re ready to go! To note, the Oatmeal Raisin cookies contain Fenugreek.
Milkmakers ready to eat cookies are perfect for busy days or on the go. The baking mixes, available both traditional and gluten-free, are great if you prefer that homemade warm cookie from the oven experience! The cookies are also dairy-free, soy-free and contain no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. One to two cookers are recommended per day to help breastfeeding moms reap the full benefits Milkmakers cookies.
I first tried the gluten-free Chocolate Chip cookies first using the “It’s A Mix!” baking mixes. I followed the cookie making instructions on the back of the package to experience what they taste like all on their own. The results are that they are delicious and I will have no problem eating 1 – 2 of these cookies a day! Even my husband tried them and loved them! They also have a booklet that includes a variety of fun recipe ideas which inspired me to add some extra fun ingredients to my next batch of cookies. I added my go-to Chai Spice blend which gave these cookies a tasty spicy kick! You could also add cacao powder, nut butter, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nuts, dried fruit… the options are endless!
