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
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.
Yield: 16 Cookies
