Banana Bread with key ingredients to increase milk supply

Issues with low milk supply are much more common than many assume. There’s a long list of reasons why women struggle with low supply (we have a list of the most common reasons here). Luckily, there are a variety of ways to boost your milk output. Certain ingredients like flaxseed, fenugreek, and brewers yeast have been proven to increase milk supply.

These ingredients can easily be worked into many common recipes. In the past, we have shared lactation smoothies, lactation blueberry muffins, and even lactation oatmeal.

Today we are sharing a delicious banana bread recipe that can help boost your milk supply. I always like to drizzle a little bit of honey on top of mine for a delicious snack!
