Mom Made Brownies For School Bake Sale Using Her Own BREAST MILK

Breast Milk brownies

She doesn't get why people were mad.

There's nothing I love more than a good brownie. 

They're always delicious, they can fix pretty much any kind of problem, and they're super easy to make. I mean, it's hard to mess up a brownie, right? 

Well, in the case of the mother who used her own bodily fluids to whip up a batch for her child's bake sale, it was a pretty easy. 


In the world of cooking, people often substitute one ingredient for another similar ingredient when they're out of what the recipe calls for. An anonymous (and dare I say resourceful?) mom did what she deemed sanitary and substituted her own breast milk for milk while making brownies. 


According to her, she didn't have enough time to go to the store to get real milk, so she just used her own. 

Other parents at the school were obviously grossed out by her secret ingredient, and the mom wasn't sure why. To her, milk is milk. So she did what people who think it's okay to put breast milk in brownies usually do: she asked Facebook.

Alright, so there are a few things wrong her right off the bat. 

She shouldn't rationalize the breast milk brownies by saying the kids at the school need the nutrition. Kids can get nutrition from literally thousands of other, more sanitary, safer places than from a stranger's boob. Plus, brownies are not a nutritious snack, and I don't think adding breast milk changes that. 

Also, just like parents are worried about their kids' eating candy that was messed with on Halloween, they're going to freak if someone's bodily fluids are in their school snacks. Parents will always be concerned about what goes into their child's bodies, and that's not blowing anything out of proportion.

There's a good chance she knows this now, seeing as her confusion was shared on the Sanctimommy Facebook page, and has since gone viral. Thousands of people commented to share their outrage. 


Many people wrote angerly about the health risks associated with her choice, saying the parents are concerned about the mother's milk being drug and disease free. How are they supposed to know the woman is clean and that her milk is safe? 

Some even said this was close to a criminal defense being that it's on the same level of people who don't disclose having a sexually transmitted disease before they have sex with a new partner. Sounds a little harsh, but the point makes sense. 

Another said this was the one of the many reasons school are getting stricter about parents bringing in baked goods. Breast milk brownies aren't helping anyone. 

And of course, with a seriously crazy story like this, people had some fun. 

So while you thought it may be totally harmless to grab a seemingly innocent brownie from your son or daughter's bake sale, you might want to think again. It may be 2017, but people still haven't grasped the fact that we don't want to digest any of their bodily fluids. 

Hopefully, this will be a lesson to anyone else who thinks this is okay. It isn't. Please stop.
