The Yummiest Lactation Cookies

Today’s experiment… Oatmeal Chocolate Chips Lactation Cookies. As you might already know I will try anything to increase my milk supply and while I was shopping through well.ca I noticed that had Boons lactation cookies for a nice $9 on sale; I had to order some! Well they were delicious! I ordered a bag of the Cocoa Quinoa & Oatmeal Raisin. I must say I really preferred the Cocoa Quinoa, it was the right amount of chocolate to kill a craving while assisting with my milk supply 🙂 Win win in my books!

I wasn’t about to pay for another bag of those bad boys so I turned to Pinterest to seek out the most pinned lactation cookie recipes and wow there were A LOT! I settled  on 4 different ones and played with ingredients from all making the yummiest cookies! I personally used all organic ingredients but if you don’t have them don’t get hung up, just use what you have.

Ingredients

3 cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons brewers yeast
3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
4 tablespoons unrefined organic virgin coconut oil
1 1/2 cups organic cane sugar (I buy mine at Costco)
2 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips/chunks

Directions

  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees F
  2. Whisk in a large bowl oatmeal, flour, yeast, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon & salt.
  3. In your mixer bowl beat butter with coconut oil until creamy.
  4. Add sugar and beat until “fluffy”.
  5. Add eggs!
  6. Add vanilla extract.
  7. Gradually add dry ingredients.
  8. Hand mix in chocolate chips so they’re evenly dispensed
  9. Place desired amount on to lined cookie sheet and bake! Mine took 12 minutes but each oven is different I suggest setting your timer for 10 minutes and checking them.
