Lactation Cookie Recipe

Lactation Cookies

Recipe By: kfwarden

"These cookies are great for breastfeeding mothers! They are moist and super yummy and they help boost and/or maintain milk supply. And yes, husbands can eat them too! I have to hide these from my hubby when I make them! The brewers' yeast, wheat germ, flax seed, and whole oats are why these cookies help with milk supply for lactating mothers. Don't skip those ingredients!"

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons flax seed meal

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 3 egg yolks

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup brewers' yeast

  • 1 tablespoon wheat germ

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats

  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Mix flaxseed with water in small bowl and let soak for 5 minutes.

  3. Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Add egg yolks and vanilla extract; beat to incorporate. Stir flax seed mixture into the butter mixture.

  4. Mix flour, brewer's yeast, wheat germ, baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar in a separate bowl; add to butter mixture and stir until just combined. Fold oats and chocolate chips into the dough.

  5. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto a baking sheet.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
