Hey everyone! Welcome to our new page for our Lactation Cookies! I am very excited about this new product for nursing moms! Currently we are offering our lactation cookies locally & just began offering shipping to both in state and out of state!
A little bit about our cookies and how they were started! I am a mom of 2, my oldest is 3 and my youngest is soon to be 5months. I have a food truck called Kastle's Kreations and we specialize in Gourmet Cupcakes that travels around Anchorage, ER and the Valley in Alaska. On baking days and truck days my boys go to a SAHM daycare and since my youngest was around 3mo i had to start pumping full time while i was away from him. After about 1.5mo of being back to work full time, i noticed my milk supply was decreasing wk to wk and before i knew it i went from getting 5/6oz from one side to only getting 3oz between both sides in a pumping session. I looked into some different options and one thing I came across was Lactation Cookies. Well, since i own a bakery I decided why not try and make my own cookies. Looked up to see what needed to be in these cookies that could help boost my milk supply and then added it to my oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe. I made my first batch and they were delicious! I am not a big sweets person (i know, crazy! I own a bakery & i dont have a sweet tooth!) but i wanted to keep eating more! I started eating 2 a day & after 3 days noticed an increase of 3oz between my 3 pumping sessions. After a week my supply had doubled!!! I shared this on my business page and quickly saw that this was something other nursing moms were interested in! We had our fans/customers help us come up with a name and pick a label design and Mama's Milkin' Munchies was born!
Right now we offer 2 flavors of cookies, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip & Monster Cookie which has peanut butter, oats, chocolate chips and m&m's. We are also debuting our Lactation Granola Bars this week (March 5, 2018). We will have 2 flavors of those as well. Chocolate PB which will be Gluten & Dairy Free along with being organic. Our other flavor will be Oats n' Berries (COMING SOON) which will have dried cranberries in them and will be Gluten, Dairy, Peanut/Tree Nut Free & Organic as well.
Small Flat Rate Envelope fits a 1 weeks supply and the Medium Flat Rate Boxes can hold up to a 1 month supply of cookies/bars. Our cookies & bars can be frozen to stay fresh. There are no preservatives in our cookies.
Currently our cookies/bars are available from our cupcake truck and at the following retail locations:
Nursing Boutique at Providence in Anchorage
The Perfect Start Espresso in Wasilla across from SBS
Arctic Baby Bottoms in Wasilla (strip mall by Coldstone)
Tinkers Rainforest Deli in Eagle River (Firelake Plaza)
Whole Family Chiropractic in Anchorage (Granola Bars ONLY)
I recommend eating 2 a day for best results. The Granola Bare are more potent so for best results we recommend eating through out the day rather than all at once. This helps keep milk up and steady through out the day. You can eat them both at once for a bigger boost.
