Lactation cookies were no joke one of my favorite parts of breastfeeding. you mean I get to nourish my baby while nourishing my body with cookies?? Yes, please!

These cookies aren’t going to drastically enhance your milk supply. Which is good, because that’s not something most mamas need.

If you do feel like you need help with supply, then be sure to talk to a lactation consultant to get the one-on-one support you need.

What these cookies will do is provide you with healthy, dense calories that assist your body in producing the milk your babe needs.

They’re made with ground oats, flax seed, coconut oil, nutritional or brewer’s yeast, coconut sugar & dark chocolate. Yum yum yum!

Perfect for that late night nursing snack or whenever you need something quick, delicious and easy.

And while they won’t drastically change your supply (like fenugreek or others herbs), I did make a bit batch for some doula clients while I was weaning Bella, and ate quite a few. Shortly after my breasts were definitely much fuller. So they for sure had an affect on me!

Also – keep drinking that red raspberry leaf tea that you had during pregnancy.

Red raspberry leaf “can help increase breast milk supply, help the uterus return to pre-pregnancy size and help reduce postpartum depression.”

Another yes, please!

So, go make yourself a cup of RRL tea & eat a delicious cookie to go with it. (Or better yet, have a loved one do it for you.)

Take several deep breaths, feel nourished, and enjoy.


ps – big thanks to my girl Clarissa for sharing this recipe with me in the first place!

Vegan Lactation Cookies

  • 4 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup whole oats
  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grind up the 2c oats (save for later, can be done in blender, food processor, or coffee grinder).

Combine flax seeds & water.

Add coconut oil, coconut sugar, yeast, vanilla, baking soda & salt.

Mix well.

Gradually fold in the ground oats.

Then add chocolate chips and 1/2 cup non ground oats.

BAKE 10-12 minutes. YUM!


I almost always make a double batch, they keep well in the freezer.
