Utterly Scrumptious Lactation Cookies

The magical oatmeal cookie that's good for your soul, and for your milk production.

Ingredients

2 cups organic rolled oats

1/2 cup organic coconut sugar

1/4 cup tapioca or arrowroot flour

1/4 cup brewer's yeast 

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/2 cup almond butter

1/4 cup grass fed butter, melted 

2 eggs

2 tablespoons raw honey

½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven at 350F degrees.
  2. Put your 2 cups of rolled oats into a high speed blender or food processor. Blend until the oats are a flour-like consistency.
  3. Put dry ingredients into large bowl and mix.
  4. In a smaller bowl, put almond butter, melted butter, honey, eggs, vanilla extract and mix well.
  5. Pour the contents of smaller bowl into the dry ingredient bowl. Mix well with spoon or clean hands. Add in mix-ins, if desired.
  6. Grease a cookie sheet with coconut oil. Form small flat balls, about the circumference of a silver dollar.
  7. Bake cookies in oven for 14-16 minutes. Check for slight browning on outside of cookie.
  8. Remove from oven and transfer cookies to a cooling rack.
  9. Enjoy warm, or let cookies cool to room temperature.

Notes

There are endless mix-ins that you can add into this cookie recipe to switch things up. Some variations I enjoy include:

Shredded Coconut

Chocolate Chips

Dried Cranberries, Raisins

A Dash of Pumpkin Spice

Other Optional Ingredient Swaps:

Almond Butter: Can be replaced with sunflower butter or tahini, if allergic to nuts. Peanut butter can also be used.

Grass-Fed Butter: Can be replaced with coconut oil.

Raw Honey: Can be replaced with maple syrup.
