Double Chocolate Lactation Support Cookies



If you’re a new mom and breastfeeding like me, you want to make sure your milk supply keeps up with your baby’s needs and something to keep up with your wild appetite due to increased caloric needs while breastfeeding. Enter lactation support cookies, of course! There is a classic recipe on the web, however it contains loads of white flour and white sugar, and those don’t support good health one bit.

Here is a no-bake version with tons of healthy ingredients plus the beneficial ingredients of oats, flax, and brewer’s yeast all noted to support good milk production. Plus no baking means more time for you to bond with your baby!!


1 + ½ cup rolled oats

2 T. ground flax

1 T. brewer’s yeast

1/3 cup honey

2 T. coconut oil

pinch pink salt

2 T. organic cacao powder

¼ cup hemp seeds

½ cup dairy free chocolate chunks

2 T. water

Optional Topping: ¼ cup unsweet coconut flakes


1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor except water and chocolate chunks. Pulse until well combined.

2. Add in the water if batter needs it then pulse in the chocolate chunks.

3. Scoop out cookie batter by the tablespoon with a mini ice cream scoop and roll in coconut flakes.

4. Serve immediately or store in a glass container in the fridge.

Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

I don’t care how young or old you are, everyone loves cookies! I posted these on Instagram/Facebook last week and got a lot of requests for the recipe. So here you go my friends!

Easy to make, made with healthy ingredients. I went easy on the sugar, just the right amount. Most cookie recipes have at least a cup, but trust me you only need 1/2 cup.

Healthy Baking Swaps for the Holidays

gf pbars2 (640x480)

Got a cookie exchange or holiday party to attend soon? December is practically cookie month with all of the cookie trays going around. I know members of my family love to bake tons of cookies to give away as gifts for the holidays. You know those delicious plates filled with several kinds of cookies. How can one resist!
 What if you could swap out ingredients to make your cookies and baked goods a little bit healthier without sacrificing taste? It IS possible. Check out my tips to clean up your cookies yet still taste decadent.


Healthy Baking Swaps:
  • Instead of 1 cup sugar use ¾ cup sugar, no one will even notice, that is 4 tablespoons less sugar right there!
  • Use less processed sugars like raw honey, maple syrup, turbinado sugar in place of refined white sugar. This is a 1:1 swap.
  • Use fresh or frozen berries in recipes instead of dried fruit to cut back on added sugars.
  • Instead of 1 whole egg, use 1 tablespoon ground flax plus 3 tablespoons water. Mix and set aside 5 minutes to allow flax egg to gel. This adds extra fiber and cuts down on fat.
  • Instead of 1 cup oil use ½ cup oil and ½ cup applesauce or mashed banana or cooked pumpkin.
  • Replace ½ cup of baking flour with rolled oats or quinoa flakes for extra nutrition, protein, and fiber.
  • Use gluten free all-purpose baking flour with 3 grams fiber per serving instead of all-purpose white flour.
  • Use ½ cup of mini chocolate chips instead of 1 cup of regular size chocolate chips to reduce sugar and fat.
What are your best baking swaps? I’d love to hear from you.
