Power Packed Carrot Lactation Cuppies. (Dairy Free)

I think by now, mummies who have been ordering my stuff knows that I’ve been constantly researching on the possible additional natural food items I can add into my muffins so that they can be even more effective. They can get better quality milk, they can have a better quantity pumped out.

I’ve been reading quite a bit on lactogenic food groups, and have been toying with the idea of adding as many stuff as I can in the muffins without it tasting weird, mummies can enjoy the moist muffins I’ve been producing, and best of all, to see results whilst giving in to their dessert desire.

So I have decided on trying out carrot muffins because seemed like the only muffin that allows me to throw a whole bunch of stuff inside without it turning oh so weird. The mummies who have had a trial run on these thought that these would turn out weird, with a funny carrot smell. Surprisingly, these turned out to be quite a hit among them, because firstly, it does not smell odd, and secondly, it is not all that sweet, though mind you, they are quite filling, considering the amount and types of things I’ve added in there. Thirdly, a few of them experienced a slightly increased incremental milk supply pumped out as compared to when they were having the chocolate chip lactation muffins. It’s an all win situation. To top it off, these are dairy free and soy free. Suitable for the mummies who have been asking me to come out with dairy free products.

So on top of the usual milk producing stuff that I throw in, I’m now introducing

  • Carrots
  • Nuts
  • Coconut oil

which have been believed to help with the quality and quantity of milk produced. Hopefully with these, mummies will be able to have a better time with producing milks for their tiny little ones.

Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

image

Amidst the busy baking, I managed to spend some time with the little nephew last night to make some crispy chocolate chip cookies for his school today. Its supposedly “homework”, and boy was he oh so excited bout it.

I’ve never been one who liked cookies that were soft, except those from subway. Most soft cookies tasted “laohong” to me. Haha. Most of my friends loved crispy cookies as well. Very much like those from Famous Amos. I should think little kids too? So I proceeded to make these crispy chocolate chip cookies which happen to be a real hit amongst my friends and even customers who have ordered and reordered them.

For those who are interested, I’m sharing the recipe, because these are really good.
I took this from the kitchen magpie and modified it a little.

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup of butter, softened
3/4 cups of white granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla bean
1 egg
2 cups of chocolate chips

Method
Cream together your butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix. Beat in the flour, baking soda and salt. mix in the chocolate chips with a spatula.

Use a melon scoop to scoop balls of cookies out Onto a baking tray with at least 1.5cm space. They spread. Press the cookies down slightly and bake them in a preheated oven at 170 degrees for 12mins or until golden brown.

Happy baking. 🙂
