Recipe Collection: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies

admin April 15, 2010

These cookies are SO yummy and they will boost your milk supply, too.  Brewer’s yeast and oatmeal are known for increasing milk.  For an added benefit, replace each egg with 1 tbsp. ground flax seed and 3 tbsp. water (also makes the recipe vegan, if you’re interested).


1 cup coconut oil

½ cup turbinado sugar

¼ cup firmly packed dark brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1.5 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon sea salt

3 cups oats

1 cup chocolate chips

4 tablespoons brewer’s yeast


Cream coconut oil (softened) with sugars.  Mix in eggs, baking soda, sea salt, and vanilla.  Add brewer’s yeast and flour and stir to combine.  Finally, fold in oats and chocolate chips (may leave out chocolate if desired).  Bake at 350 for 8 – 10 minutes.
