#Breastfeeding Cookies – A tasty milk-stimulating treat for lactating #moms #newmom #borntoeat

Posted May 08 2013 1:15pm

Like I mentioned last week, breastfeeding isn’t always unicorns and lollipops . We can run into trouble with milk supply but there’s hope. Along with utilizing your local lactation specialist, you can make these tasty cookies full of food-based galactogogues, which are breast milk promoting substances. When you’re breastfeeding, your body needs approximately 500 additional calories. These tasty cookies can help you get the job done. Enjoy!

Magnificent Milky Cookies (a tasty milk-stimulating treat for lactating moms)


¼ cup water

2 heaping TBSP flaxseed meal

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 sticks REAL butter, softened

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups flour

1 TSP baking soda

1 TSP salt

3 TBSP Brewer’s Yeast

3 cups oatmeal (bulk)

1 cup dark chocolate chips

Mix it Up!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix flax seed meal and water together and set aside. Using a stand (or hand) mixer, cream together the butter and sugar (regular and brown).  Mixing at medium speed, add eggs then moistened flaxseed meal and vanilla to the mixture.  Slowly add flour, baking soda, salt and brewer’s yeast. Then mix in the oats and chocolate chips.

Lightly coat a small serving spoon (or cookie scoop) with oil. Scoop cookies and place a non-stick baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes until the edges are firm.

Recipe yields approximately 4 ½ dozen cookies. If desired, cook one dozen at a time. Freeze remaining in dozen cookie portion bags to bake as needed.

May the milk be with you!
