Thread: Molasses in lactation cookies??

    Default Molasses in lactation cookies??

    Hi there, i was just wondering if i were to substitute in molasses instead of the brown sugar in the BB lactation cookies recipe, how much should i use? I have googled this but getting mixed substitution qtys i have also tried it once but the cookies were very moist and not very nice.

    Also with the suggestion to use thicker cut oats - does this mean steel cut oats?



    Im hoping these will boost my supply more as i need to express more, have been bf for 9mths and preparing for when start going back to work! I have had one batch so far and think it's helping.
    thanks!!

    Oats are a galactogogue (lactation enhancer- spelling of that might be off) so most should work though less processed/cut up means less likelihood of interference of base nutrients... Thicker cut I think means rolled oats (not quick oats) but if you have steel cut they would be fine and TBH I have used quick oats and fine too.

    The sugar is not an active ingredient so you could substitute it with whatever.

    The most active ingredient is the Brewers Yeast- don't substitute that with anything!

    Ps I find when I express makes a big difference to output. Mornings are much better for me and contrary to common belief I need to wait more than 20 mins after a feed to pump to get good milk.

    Thanks so much Ladylove, good to know! Re the molasses, i guess I'm looking more for the measurement of molasses to use to replace brown sugar, as i haven't quite got it right yet.

    thanks!
