Mixed Nuts & Seeds Cookies - Ideal for Pregnancy and Lactation



I was inspired by a reel I recently came across on Instagram by @myfoodspree that simply mixed different nuts, seeds and maple syrup to make these delicious no flour nut and seed cookies.


The nutrition profile for something like this would be ideal for pregnancy and lactation because it is high in healthy fats, protein, minerals and fiber and can help you meet your nutrient needs while pregnant and postpartum. They make for a great postpartum one handed snack that gives you the energy you need while breastfeeding.


I gave this recipe a try, made some tweaks to it (because mine didn't stick together at first) and came up with this delicious cookie recipe that turned out super yummy and easy!


These cookies make an ideal snack between meals that will keep you full for longer while providing you with essential nutrients. Give them a try!
