I am a few years past the nursing stage with my three little ones, but a mother does not forget what it is like to be worried about her milk supply. It’s a feeling of fear like no other because you want to be able to provide for your sweet baby and it is all contingent on your milk supply.
The key ingredient is BREWER’S YEAST. What is it? Brewer’s Yeast is considered a vitamin or supplement that is a by-product of brewing beer. For those nursing moms that enjoy the taste of beer, down a tall one and that works also.

Brewer’s Yeast can be used for diarrhea, acne, PMS, influenza, etc. For the purposes of new moms, it is considered to be a helpful ingredient in increasing the milk supply. I found it in a health store and it can be a little tough to find in a regular grocery store. Brewer’s Yeast goes a loooong way. It comes in a big tub and most recipes only call for a few tablespoons. So, I wanted to try out a new recipe with my large tub of Brewer’s Yeast to see what else I could make using it. Truthfully, I decided to make lactation brownies because brownies are my absolute favorite dessert.
