If you’re searching for easy lactation cookies that taste yummy and will help boost your milk supply, you’ve come to the right place!
I love healthy lactation cookies! They make the best, healthy snacks for breastfeeding moms.
I love breastfeeding cookies so much that I wanted to create a post with some of my favorite recipes.
Lactation cookies are one of the main reasons I’m able to build and maintain my breast milk supply and I want the same for you!
I have collected what I feel are the simplest lactation cookie recipes and linked them to ones that I don’t have here on the blog.
Some of the breastfeeding cookie recipes have brewer’s yeast and some of them don’t have any. Some lactation cookie recipes are no bake and some are standard cookies you mix and bake.
I also have some awesome lactation cookies that come in a mix and pre-packaged that I’ve tried and wanted to share with you.
These lactation cookies, healthy, bake, and no-bake, will knock your socks off and give breastfeeding mamas plenty of options to consistently keep their sweet tooth satisfied and milk supply healthy.
Must-Have Lactation Cookie Ingredients for Milk Supply
Typically, lactation cookies are considered lactation cookies when they have the following ingredients:
- Oats either instant rolled or steel cut.
- Brewer’s Yeast (a very helpful tool for lactation)
These are the easiest ingredients to add to baked goods and create lactation cookie recipes, and these ingredients have been shown (though studies vary and each mama varies) to increase milk supply.
I love using Mother’s Milk Tea (amazing!), and my own protein powder Milk Dust – it’s safe and clean and perfect for breastfeeding moms because it boosts your milk supply and supplies important vitamins and nutrients.
Now that you know what milk-making ingredients to include in your lactation cookies, let’s dive into my absolute FAV lactation cookie recipe.
It’s so easy to make but so effective at increasing my milk supply while keeping blood sugar levels stable!
The Best Healthy DIY Lactation Cookie Recipe
- 2 cups quick-cook oatmeal
- 1 scoop lactation protein powder like Milk Dust Majka or Ora Organics
- 5 bananas
- 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 2 1/2 tsp flax seed
- 5 tsp brewer yeast (if you don’t have a lactation-boosting powder)
- 5 TBS chocolate chips
HOW TO MAKE THE LACTATION COOKIE
- Preheat your oven to 350.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Mash bananas and add all other ingredients.
- Mix well.
- Scoop mixture with 1/4 cup measuring cup and flatten into a cookie shape on the cookie sheet.
- Bake for 15-18 minutes.
- Once cooled a bit, cut parchment paper and stack it in a container.
- Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
