Maybe you’re a new parent without a lot of time or energy. Or maybe you’re going to visit a friend or family member who has just had a baby, and you want to bring something that will be helpful. How about some Oatmeal Chia Cookies?
The recipe for these cookies comes from Brittany Mullins’ blog, Eating Bird Food. They are full of magnesium-rich and nutrient-dense ingredients like chia seeds, almond milk, almond butter, oats, dates, and dark chocolate chips, all of which can help give new parents the energy they need as they navigate physical and emotional changes, find new routines, and work through the anxieties of caring for a baby.
Also, the oats are a great ingredient for helping with lactation! (Brittany’s blog even has a recipe for Healthy Lactation Cookies and Lactation Bites if you are looking specifically for help with healthy breastfeeding!)
But these oatmeal chia breakfast cookies are great for a quick healthy and yummy breakfast that can be made ahead of time and grabbed on the fly to eat during a nursing or pumping session or just a midday snack whenever there’s a free moment!
