It's been said that oatmeal can increase your milk supply, and there are a lot of breastfeeding moms who can agree with that! No one is really sure how exactly it works, but even KellyMom agrees that it may have an effect on your supply: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/oatmeal.html

Below are several recipes made with oatmeal, for a yummy and easy way to try to give your supply a little boost!

Applesauce-Raisin-Oatmeal Muffins - Submitted by Amy B.
I've heard many times that oats and protein can help a lot with breastfeeding, so I found this recipe with my daughter that I fell in love with. I thought I'd share it for anyone interested. I will post the exact way I make it, but you could use white flour and no walnuts.

Ingredients
1 1/2 c. oatmeal
1 1/4 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 c. applesauce
1/2 c. skim milk
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 egg white

Directions
Combine oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and soda. Add applesauce, milk, brown sugar, oil and egg white. Add raisins and chopped walnuts to taste. Mix until dry ingredients are moist. Make topping and add on top (see below). Bake at 400 degrees for 17-18 minutes.

Topping (I tend to make a bit more, because this is my favorite part):
1/4 c. oatmeal
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. melted butter

Combine together and put on top of muffins.

***I pop these in the freezer until I want to use them. I generally grab two, put a little spray butter on top, and pop them in the microwave until warm. These are easy to eat while actually feeding your baby. I also double the recipe to make 24 servings.


Feel free to PM me or post here to add yours!

That monster cookie recipe is missing any flour...not sure how much to add but that doesn't seem right. We add the flaxseed meal and brewers yeast for a little extra kick in the milk makers!

Most monster cookie recipes seem to not have flour. Mine are baking, but so far seem perfect! I need to stop eating the dough now... :ph34r:

I found a recipe that is Pumpkin Nut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies.
Pumpkin Nut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies!
Ingredents:

4 c. whole wheat flour
3 c. old-fashioned oats (uncooked)
2 tsp. baking soda
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. sea salt
1 1/2 c. unsalted butter (softened)
2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
4 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. flaxseed meal
2-4 tbsp. brewer’s yeast
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 16oz. can of pumpkin
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. chopped walnuts or pecans
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl combine the water and the flaxseed meal; let sit for 5 minutes.
In one bowl, combine flour, baking soda, yeast, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy.
Slowly beat in the sugars.
Add vanilla, egg, and flaxseed mixture. Beat until smooth.
Add pumpkin and mix well.
Slowly add your dry ingredients and beat until well mixed.
Stir in oats, chocolate chips, and nuts. (Tip: I use my hands in order to get the oats completely covered. If they’re not covered, your cookies will have dry, flaky, uncooked oats in them.)
Place dough in 1.5 inch lumps, 1-2 inches apart, with a medium scoop. You can use a spoon, but the scoop makes awesome looking cookies!
Bake for 13-15 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Remove from oven and transfer from cookie sheet immediately to a cooling rack.
Yields 6 Dozen.

Protein Pancakes

1/2 Cup catmeal
1/2 Cup cottage cheese
3 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract

Pulse the oatmeal in a food processor or blender for a few seconds until it is the consistency of corn meal. Add the cottage cheese and egg whites and mix. You can also add protein poweder, cinnamon, sweetener, etc here. Cook in a preheated skillet like regular pancakes.

My monster cookies aren't supposed to have flour... but a warning that they will not turn out with natural "healthy" peanut butter! You need to use a traditional brand. I made this with an organic, unprocessed brand and they were flat and hard as rocks. Just an FYI. :D
