Lactation cookie recipe

Are you looking to increase your milk supply? I’ve started baking these oatmeal chocolate chip lactation cookies and they are SO good! Honestly, I like them even better than regular chocolate chip cookies, which I didn’t think was possible.

Breastfeeding can be such a struggle at times and there is nothing more than a dip in your supply. Been there, done that! These cookies really do help! 

These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies stay chewy and moist even a few days after baking. They might not be as healthy as some other lactation supporting recipes, but these are so delicious you won’t find yourself struggling to make yourself eat them, that’s for sure!

Without further ado, here’s the recipe:

If you need to increase your milk supply, this Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies recipe is the way to do it! They are SO moist and delicious, you'll find yourself eating a ton and your milk supply increasing rapidly! You'll notice I fixed this batch with M&M's for extra yumminess! (However, the M&M's are totally optional!)

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup brewer’s yeast
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups M&Ms or chocolate chips, or a combination of both

Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Mix water and flaxseed together in a small bowl and set aside.
    3. Cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar.
    4. Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix until well blended.
    5. Mix in the bowl of flaxseed meal.
    6. Add flour, brewer’s yeast, baking soda, and salt.
    7. Stir in oats and M&Ms/chocolate chips.
    8. Place spoonfuls of the dough onto your baking sheet and bake for about 10 – 13 minutes. I found that in my oven 11 minutes was just perfect.
    9. After taking the cookies out of the oven, let them sit for about a minute or two, and then move them onto a wire rack to cool.
    10. Increase your milk supply while you enjoy delicious cookies!

Notes

It’s very important with this recipe that you use Brewer’s Yeast. Regular yeast will not help to increase your milk supply the way that Brewers yeast will.

I was able to find all of the ingredients at Walmart except for the Brewer’s yeast. For that I needed to order it online through Amazon. If you live in a bigger city you might be able to find it in a retail store, but if not, just order online. One container will last you for a lot of cookie batches.

I have breastfed five babies at this point for a combined 6+ years. This recipe has always been a big help to me when I’m trying to increase my supply. Other things that I’ve found helpful are making sure I drink plenty of water – and when I say plenty, I mean, make sure you are drink 2-4 glasses more than what you’d typically drink in a day! 

Another thing that helps is keeping my baby close by as much as possible and offering the breast every two hours. That really helps to stimulate your body to make more and more milk! Isn’t it amazing what our bodies can do?!

Now that you’re own your way to a better milk supply, head over and check out these hilarious breastfeeding memes. I promise you’ll get a good laugh out of them and I’m sure you’ll be able to relate to quite a few!

I nursed all 4 of mine for a total of 4 years and 8 months. This included my twins. I never had a problem with my supply, but I hear a lot of people saying that they do. I will keep these in mind to recommend to others.

I made these without the brewers yeast. I added an extra tablespoon of flour and 1 tsp of baking powder to make up for it. They turned out delicious! Suitable for anyone, breastfeeding or not!

The flavor of these cookies is quite nice. I used espresso powder and chocolate chips instead to make more of a mocha cookie. Only thing I didn’t like was that this cookie has the texture of a cake or muffin. I prefer chewy cookies so this recipe was not for me.

Wouldn't it be awesome if the hospitals offered lactating cookies to new moms?
