These little blueberry lactation scones are not only incredibly delicious and healthy, but they are also filled with galactagogue ingredients that will help increase milk supply.
Have you ever had a scone?
I love them… I love the consistency and the little salty, little sweetness about them.
They are heavenly.
And an added bonus that they are gluten-free, high in protein (with a protein that also has a medical grade multivitamin in it) and will help increase your milk supply.
That means this little snack will help you feed your baby and lose your baby weight all in one.
Winner winner chicken dinner 🙂
Well, I made these little blueberry protein scones and they were a hit.
The recipe made a ton of them so I got to share with a lot of people and so far the consensus is…..
Everyone has loved them!
Making healthy snacks like this is super important because it gives you quick and, on the go, snacks and breakfast options for the week.
Having a newborn at home makes everything harder the first few weeks postpartum, so taking a few minutes one time a week to make snacks like this that serve double purpose is a great investement in your time.
And don’t be shocked if your hubby and your other kids like them too.
My entire fam did!
It makes eating healthy SO much easier and will help with lactation.
Also, having healthy ready-made snacks is good for those crazy hunger pangs you get from nursing in the middle of the night.
I can’t tell you how many mama’s tell me that they struggle the most in the middle of the night feedings because they feel ravenous and eat all kinds of junk and whatever they can get their hands on in that ridiculously tired time.
I took a few weeks before my due date both pregnancies to make some snacks like this and others I will share with you and froze them.
This helped me get healthy breakfasts, snacks and middle of the night feeding meals lol
I also love these:
There’s a few galactagogue ingredients in this yummy Blueberry Lactation Scones.
- Almonds (almond flour)
- Brewer’s Yeast
By the way, if you need some more tips on lactation and increasing milk supply, I wrote a great post on it.
I hope you add these to your postpartum prep or to your freezer meals if you are still pregnant and prepping for those first few weeks postpartum.
If you haven’t thought of doing that, it’s the best advice I can give you.
Its so helpful and will help you eat healthy to help start getting the weight off, as well as keep you energized with good, balanced meals, helps curb your violent cravings when nursing and will help lactation and save you time.
Here’s the recipe.
Of course, I added mPower (protein powder for pregnant and postpartum moms) to add PROTEIN to them because that makes it more of a complete meal and protein helps you feel fuller longer, which always helps you eat healthier and not have so many cravings.
Protein also is super thermic; your body has to work really hard to break it down, so you burn a lot of calories in the process of digestion.
So I pretty much add it to all my healthy baked snacks and you should too.
Especially because if you are postpartum and breastfeeding, your baby needs the extra protein.Print
Servings ~ 15 Scones
🍇3 cups almond flour
🍇1 tsp baking soda
🍇2 scoops mPower Protein Powder
🍇2 tbsp flaxmeal
🍇1 tbsp Brewers Yeast
🍇zest 1-2 lemons (if you like lemony -2)
🍇1 tsp vanilla extract
🍇2 tbsp agave or honey
🍇Juice of 1 lemon
🍇1 cup of blueberries
-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
-In a bowl mix all the wet ingredients, including the zest, and then add in the dry ingredients and mix well.
-If it needs a little liquid, add a little more lemon juice. You can even add a little applesauce or milk but just a tad.
-Fold in the blueberries and make into little rolls and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for ~20 minutes.
The vanilla flavor of mPower also adds decadence and richness to the flavor of these lactation scones, which I love.
These are so good, that I still make them to this day and just omit the brewer’s yeast.
By the way, you can make these in another flavor.
You don’t have to do lemon, but I loved the lemon in it.
You can make these with strawberries, raspberries or chocolate chips or shredded coconut, or nuts, seeds or a combo.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I did and that they help you increase your milk supply and eat healthier so you can shed those baby pounds faster.
By the way, if you are struggling to lose weight postpartum or just feel super unmotivated, I have a great postpartum program that will help you find the time to exercise, help you get more organized and productive and help you lose your baby weight in 3 months or less.
P.S. Remember that my mPower Protein Powder was formulated for pregnant and postpartum moms and can replace a meal, contains a high quality, medical grade multivitamin in it so you don’t have to keep spending money on prenatal pills (this is better) and tastes like a vanilla ice cream milk shake dream. Oh, and it also has pre and probiotics and digestive enzymes to make it easier on digestion during this important and delicate time.
If you haven’t tried it, it’s time…
Not only will you enjoy it in shakes and smoothies, but you can make all your snacks better for you by adding mPower to them.
