Cookies for Milk

by Hannah

I got this recipe from this blog: Rumble in the Kitchen. I figured that at the very least they would taste good and be fairly healthy, but I have actually noticed an increase in my milk supply! These cookies are great for any nursing mama.

Chocolate Oatmeal Lactation Cookies


1 C butter (I accidentally only used 1 stick-1/2 cup- and they came out fine!)
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
4 T water
2 T flaxseed meal (no subs)
2 Lg eggs
1 t vanilla
2 C flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
3 C Thick cut oats (used regular old fashioned Quaker oats with no problem)
1 Bag Chocolate chips I used about 1/2 a bag because that’s all I had)
2 T Brewers Yeast or Nutritional Yeast Flakes

Preheat oven at 375.

Mix 2 T of flaxseed meal and water, set aside 3-5 minutes.
Cream butter and sugar.
Add eggs.
Stir flaxseed mix into butter mix and add vanilla.
Beat until well blended and mixture turns a pale yellow.
Mix dry ingredients, except oats and choc chips.
Add butter mix to dry ingredients.
Stir in the oats and then the choc chips.
Drop on ungreased or parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake 8-12 minutes.
