Our Bars - Milkful Goodness

We pride ourselves on not being a lactation "cookie"...Our bars are yummy and craveable all on their own- without artificial ingredients and unhealthy additions to your diet. 

 

 

Full of Wholesome Goodness

Milkful bars are a wholesome, convenient, energy-packing snack for mommies- especially nursing mommies. Milkful bars are loaded with natural ingredients that not only create a healthy/convenient/well balanced snack, they can help BOOST milk supply. 

No hidden sugars here...unlike other lactation cookies/bars on the market, we worked hard to keep our sugar content LOW.  

Each Milkful bar is naturally balanced with between 4-5 grams of fiber, and 5-6 grams protein- which equates to sustained blood sugar levels to power you through your day! 

Milkful bars are also high in healthy fats (omega 3 fatty acids) which passes from mommy to baby through breast milk. And best of all, they are loaded with vitamins and minerals – such as Magnesium, Chromium, and B vitamins which your body uses to produce milk.

Galactagogues: (The Milk Inducing Rock Stars)

Rolled Oats

Other Ingredients Chosen with Purpose

Our Sweeteners: Organic Brown Rice Syrup & Honey

Brown Rice Syrup and Honey are our sweeteners of choice for good reason...

Brown Rice Syrup is 100% fructose free. Fructose, which is found in many sweeteners, is a fast releasing sugar, which tends to cause insulin to spike. Brown rice sugar is a polysaccharide or a complex sugar, so it dissolves more easily in the bloodstream preventing an accumulation of fat. The complex carbohydrates and nutrients in brown rice syrup mean a longer digestion time and a longer lasting flow of energy! And what momma doesn't need that? This may also help control blood sugar levels and reduce cholesterol.
Honey- in addition to many other health benefits, honey's balance of fructose and glucose can also help with regulating blood sugar levels. When you eat honey, the fructose portion allows the glucose to be taken in by the liver to form glycogen - which becomes available for the brain, heart, kidneys, and red blood cells.  This enhances the functioning of those essential organs and tissues, while removing glucose from circulation and thus lowering blood sugar. 

    Chia Seeds

    Chia seeds are one of the most popular “superfoods”’ today and for good reason! They are loaded with fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, plenty of high quality protein, and several essential minerals and antioxidants. They may improve risk factors for heart disease and diabetes, lead to better digestive health and increase blood levels of heart-healthy omega-3s.

    Hemp Seeds

    Hemp Seeds are another one of nature's perfect foods. They are a perfect and natural blend of easily digested proteins, essential fats (Omega 3 & 6), Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), antioxidants, amino acids, fiber, iron, zinc, carotene, phospholipids, phytosterols, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin D, vitamin E, chlorophyll, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, copper, potassium, phosphorus, and enzymes.

    Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

    Coconut oil has a multitude of health benefits, including skin care, hair care, improving digestion, heart health and immunity against a host of infections and diseases. Research suggests that coconut oil also helps to reduce abdominal obesity in women, and increase the functioning of the thyroid and endocrine system.
