They're Not Going to Make You Lactate.

I would like to apologize in advance for the number of times I use the words 'lactate' and 'breastmilk' in this post.  I promise that even if those words freak you out, this post is worth reading.  And I promise I won't use the word boobs.  Well, except right there.

While I was still pregnant, one of my good friends sent me a recipe for Breastmilk Cookies. 
From someone who is a nurse and pregnant with her third bambino, I decided the cookies would be worth a try...

Me:  Do we have a health food store nearby?
Mr. BUB:  I'm sure, why?
Me:  I want to make breastmilk cookies.
Mr. BUB:  Why would you make cookies out of your breastmilk?

So, to clarify, these cookies are not made out of my breastmilk.  Or anyone else's breastmilk.  That would just be weird.  They're actually made to increase a woman's milk supply.  So, they'd be better titled Lactation Cookies.  Actually, it looks like that's the actual title on the recipe site.  Can we still pretend I came up with it myself?

I finally got the chance to hit the health food store for the ingredients and whip up a batch this week.  I was a little worried, because I'm a serious chocoholic and this recipe only calls for 1 cup of chocolate chips- but these things are good!

Mr. BUB got home after I pulled a batch out of the oven...

Mr. BUB:  Are these breastmilk cookies?
Me:  Yeah, you should try one!  They're REALLY good.
Mr. BUB (joking- I think):  I don't want to lactate though...
Me:  They're just oatmeal chocolate chip...

Hahahaha, "I don't want to lactate", your Mr cracks me up. Also until you explained, I was a little worried they were also cookies made with breastmilk, oy.

I also thought they were made from breastmilk. I was trying really hard not to judge you.

Too funny! I'll have to try them :)

hahahah too funny!

Remind me to never eat the cookies at your house!

Claire Kiefer said...

hahaha, hilarious! I can totally see how that's misleading. What on earth is in them that promotes lactation? Whatever is, any excuse to eat cookies is worthwhile . . .

Mr. BUB cracks me up!

I totally just bought all of the ingredients to make these. And you are allowed to say breastmilk and lactate and boobs as much as you want. You're a mom and it's totally kosher now! :)

I can only imagine the reaction my husband is going to have while I make these. I'm interested in seeing if I have an increase! I am keeping up alright with the little one but it would be nice to have a little extra to stockpile.

These post always make me laugh.

maybe he will lactate, then you can share the responsibility of feeding the baby! and- btw- I would have just added an extra cup of chocolate chips, just in case...
