Our friends at Goodfor have put together a yummy recipe to make your own lactation cookies. This recipe uses all good ingredients such as rolled oats, brewers yeast and ground flax seeds which are all galactologues (known to promote milk production), as well as tasting delicious too!
If making the cookies doesn’t sound like you, be sure to try Franjo's breastfeeding cookies, filled with all the goodness to help stimulate milk supply.
Enjoy! xx Nb
Makes about 12 cookies
Ingredients1 cup oat flour1 cup jumbo whole oats½ cup coconut sugar½ cup dark chocolate drops or buttons2 tbsp brewers yeast2 tbsp ground flax seeds1 tsp baking powder¼ tsp cinnamon¼ tsp sea salt100g butter or *coconut oil (melted) or ½ cup.
MethodPreheat the oven to 180 degrees and prepare a baking tray with baking paper. Place flaxseeds in a small ramekin with 4 tbsp water, mix and leave to sit for 5 – 10 mins. Combine all other dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Once the flaxseeds have gelatinised add them to the mixture, along with the melted butter or coconut oil. Mix really well until a thick consistency is reached. It may start out a little dry but just keep mixing. Roll into balls and place on the prepared baking tray. Press balls down slightly if you want flatter cookies. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Allow to cool.
Optional – top with flakey sea salt for extra flavour.
