Paleo Pecan Pie Lactation Muffins

WAIT! If lactation isn’t your thing:
You can very easily make these normal muffins! Skip the brewers yeast and use a cup more almond meal instead of the flaxseed meal.

If lactation is your thing:
It is so hard finding ways to incorporate brewers yeast into recipes and have them still taste good. Luckily, all of the sweet ingredients and spices in this recipe balance out the bitterness. The yeast and the flaxseed meal will hopefully boost your milk supply and all of the other ingredients will keep you on the paleo diet. These make a great breakfast or snack on the go. Double up the recipe and freeze a batch for later, they defrost perfectly with 30 seconds in the microwave!
