Dairy Free Lactation Cookies are perfect for breastfeeding mamas who need a cookie treat! Made with oats, brewers yeast, flaxseed, and coconut oil, these lactation cookies are lactation-boosting AND dairy free.
I've made countless batches of lactation cookies over the last five years, but I've never shared any of the recipes. Typically, I have just been making these from How Sweet Eats, or just adding a tablespoon or two of brewers yeast and flaxseed meal to my favorite oatmeal cookies. This time, however, with Emma's tummy issues with dairy, I had to get a little creative with my recipe.
I know I'm not the only mama out there avoiding dairy for the sake of her baby, and just had to share the recipe with you!
Ingredients in Dairy Free Lactation Cookies
The main lactation encouraging ingredients in these lactation cookies are old fashioned oats which contain a key hormone for milk producing, brewers yeast, and flaxseed meal.
This lactation cookie recipe uses coconut oil instead of butter, to keep them dairy free. I also added shredded coconut for some extra coconutty flavor and chewiness.
Even though these cookies are great for breastfeeding moms, they will be loved by everyone. My husband, who usually won't touch my lactation cookies/bars, could not keep his hands off of these! He said he loved the hint of coconut in them.
