Lactation Brownies

Support your milk supply with these lactation brownies and a cup of Milk's Up breastfeeding tea

A good friend of mine recently had a baby, and has been struggling with her milk supply.  So I decided to try a lactation brownie recipe that I found on Exclusively Pumping, and take her some Milk's Up breastfeeding tea and cake. 
They turned out amazing!  And it's hard to think of a more delicious way to support breastfeeding!
She loved them and said that they really helped her supply - so I thought I'd share the recipe.
Like our Milk's Up breastfeeding tea, there are some unusual galactagogues in the recipe that are hard to get in your diet elsewhere, so can hopefully help, in the most chocolate-y way possible!  Key to its success are the flax seed, and the oats.

As a note - you will definitely need digital scales for it, as I converted the ingredients from USA cups!



  • 225g melted butter
  • 500g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 37.5g ground flax seed soaked in 60ml water for 10 minutes
  • 120g flour
  • 100g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 170g chocolate chips
  • 93g rolled oats


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
  • In a large bowl, mix together butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and flax seed until combined.
  • Stir in flour, cocoa powder, salt.
  • Fold in chocolate chips and oatmeal.
  • Pour into a greased 23 x 23 x 5 baking tray.
  • Bake for 20-23 minutes.


Pair with our Milk's Up breastfeeding tea for another boost of galactagogues in your diet - as fenugreek, fennel, anise and nettle are used in our blend, and can also support your nursing journey.
