Best Lactation Cookie Recipe! (AND Dairy Free)

Lactation Cookies

Like so many others, I crave cookies! I’ll blame it on the fact that I’m really tired and instead of caffeine my body is using sugar to keep going. SO…to cure my sweet tooth and help my milk production, I whip these up and have them handy. This is a great recipe for dairy free moms and for moms wanting to boost their milk supply!


1cup butter flavored shortening (OR butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
4 tablespoons of water
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons brewer’s yeast
3 cup rolled oats

1 cup chocolate chips OR nuts OR dried cranberries

In 6 East Steps!
1. Soak the flaxseed in the water for a few minutes to soften.
2. In large bowl, beat eggs. Add shortening and sugar, then the flaxseed and vanilla to bowl.
3. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl and then add to dry ingredients. (OR I just sprinkle dry ingredients evenly over wet mixture and mix!)
4. Add any options to the mix!
