Lactation Support Banana Oat Muffins

If you have checked out our Blueberry Lactation Muffin recipe, you know that I love an easy to grab and go breakfast that supports lactation. Chasing a toddler and breastfeeding a newborn doesn’t exactly leave me a ton of time to make breakfast every morning so pre-making these on a Sunday for the week to come is always a huge help in the mornings.

There are a few ingredients that really make these muffins powerful: Oats, Flaxseed, and Brewer’s Yeast are all galactagogue. A galactagogue is a scientific term for a substance that aids in lactation support. A few other galactagogues are almonds, chickpeas, and dark, leafy greens.

These key ingredients are what make these muffins a powerful milk boosting’ breakfast for any breastfeeding mama! Here’s the scoop on how to make these muffins:


  • 2-3 ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter (unsalted)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp Brewer’s Yeast
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • OPTION #1: 1 cup of chopped almonds (almonds are another galactagogue)
  • OPTION #2: I like to top my muffins with sprinkled oats and Bob Red Mills Decorative Sparkling Sugar. It the perfect added sweetness!


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prep your muffin tin
  • In a medium bowl, mix the mashed bananas, butter, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, flaxseed, Brewer’s Yeast, and baking soda
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix just until combined.
  • Pour batter into the muffin pan, filling each 3/4 of the way
  • Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Do the toothpick trick! Insert a toothpick into the middle of a muffin, if it comes out clean, your muffins are ready!
