I have done it everyone. I have done it, for you! As you may recall, breastfeeding has not been a walk in the park for me. It has been a battle, and I am now a warrior. Of all my research on what to do to increase breast milk production I have come across and great number of lactation cookie recipes. Lactation cookies are great, who doesn't want a good excuse to eat a cookie every day? I wanted to change it up a little bit, and I had some overripe bananas. Thus it was that my idea for lactation banana bread was born.
I love banana bread. Remember when I shared this gluten free banana bread recipe with you before?I buy bananas because I know I will be bad at eating them and I will end up getting to make banana bread with it! So it was only logical that I would eventually want to make a lactation banana bread recipe full of galactogogues to help milk supply.
The way I made this lactation banana bread is even more fun because:
1. They are mini loaves
2. They have chocolate chips in them
Let me tell you something. When you are breastfeeding your body gets drained of nutrients. You have to work hard to eat healthy and drink lots and lots of water (PH is sometimes shocked at how I can chug water now. I have long been a good water drinker, but I really cannot get enough.) We are working hard to supply our sweet babes with healthy sustenance while they are growing so quickly and are so dependent on us.
We get to eat chocolate chips.
We get to eat mini loaves of banana bread.
So go at it mama. I made this mini lactation banana bread loaves and cut them in half so I could eat one half per day. It is a fun flavor and texture change from cookies. There is also a little less sugar and if you REALLY don't want the chocolate chips it is even less. There is also less butter than any cookie recipe I use calls for. So hey, you are not indulging, but enjoying a lactation banana bread that helps you feed your baby and is still healthier for you, but tastes SO GOOD!
I am pleased, and you will be too!
For this recipe you'll want a mini loaf pan! Check out these great options below!
