Recipe Notes

*Brewer’s yeast is recommended by lactation specialists as a way to increase milk supply. I did not add Brewer’s yeast to this recipe myself as I am intolerant to yeast. Plus, according to my research, Brewer’s yeast has a very bitter taste. Therefore, I am unsure of how it will taste in the muffins. Perhaps to test the addition of yeast, you could add 1 tbsp of yeast to half of the mixture and bake 2 separate batches.
