Let me tell you, this cookie is amazing! Just stop your search and try this recipe!
We are currently traveling with our baby in Arizona (more on that later) and the day we landed in Phoenix I got sick and was very happy to have a stash of my lactation cookies to help me while away from home and a shrinking supply. The first night I had 3 or maybe 5 cookies (they are really delicious, ok!?) and by morning I was engorged, which barely ever happens now.
So here is my cookie, I hope you enjoy and it helps your supply from “just enough-er” like to me to fit the need of your little one!
Start here >
1 cup organic brown sugar
1/2 cup organic granulated sugar
1 cup organic coconut oil
Mix together on low speed in a mixer until fluffy and mixed well.
Add one at a time:
1 tsp organic vanilla extract
2 tbs water
Mix together on low speed
In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients:
1 1/2 cup organic wholegrain flour
1 tsp salt
5 tbs brewers yiest
6 fenugreek capsules
Gently fold the dry mixture into the first part that you whisked in the mixer earlier.
I really like the oatmeal mix of a cookie I created, so this is what I used in mine:
Mix together all the dry ingredients and fold them into the rest of the mixture.
1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup organic coconut flakes (I prefer to use raw and not toasted flakes)
1/2 cup organic chia seeds
2/3 cup organic ground flax meal
2/3 cup organic almonds shreds
2/3 cup organic sunflower seeds (not toasted)
1/2 cup organic semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup organic mixed berry (I like this one from the grocery store they have different options and I love the one with mulberries, cherries, cranberries and a few different options that I wouldn’t normally get individually)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Place cookies on a baking sheet 1 inch apart.
Bake for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown on the edges. These will be easy to burn on the bottom so watch the timer closely! I found that with coconut oil the cookies seemed to burn faster. My oven is new and I’m still learning how it works and how it bakes, yours may take a little longer bake then 8 minutes.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before taking them off.
I use these little zip-log bags to be store them. It makes it super easy for me to throw one into my diaper bag or purse and have it during a coffee break during the day. Or I freeze them for later need.
If you try this recipe and it does wonders for you like it did for me, could you do me a huge favor? Come back and tell me about it! I’d love to hear it!
