Dairy Free Lactation Cookies

Healthy Dairy Free Lactation CookiesLooking for another way to boost your milk supply or increase your oat and flax intake?? I have another yummy recipe to share with you!!  These dairy free lactation cookies are filled with oats, flax, brewers yeast and a bonus ingredient – avocado oil! The added bonus supplies us with extra nutrients and makes them dairy free in case you have a baby who cannot tolerate dairy. They are also a great base for a toddler trail mix cookie.  I used some dairy free dark chocolate chips but I have also added sprinkles for my kids for fun!

2/3 cup avocado oil (see note)

    ½ cup honey (or maple syrup)

      2 eggs

        2 tsp vanilla

          1 cup whole wheat flour

            1 cup white flour

              1/3 cup brewers yeast

                1/3 cup ground flax seed

                  1 tsp baking powder

                    ½ tsp baking soda

                      ½ tsp salt

                        1 tsp cinnamon

                          2 cups oats

                            1 cup mix-ins (raisins, chocolate chips (dairy free), nuts, seeds etc…)


                              • Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 350°F.
                              • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
                              • Measure the oil and honey in a liquid measuring cup
                              • Add in the eggs and vanilla, whisk together and set aside
                              • In a large bowl measure the flours, brewers yeast, flax, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt and whisk together to combine
                              • Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly
                              • Fold in the oats 1 cup at a time
                              • Fold in your mix-ins
                              • Using a medium scoop, measure and scoop the dough on the parchment lined baking sheet (they do not spread so you do not have to spread them far apart)
                              • Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes- Note: halfway through the baking time I flatten the cookies with the back of a spatula – you do not have to do this (cookies will be firm on the outside and soft inside)
                              • Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and let cool for 5-10 minutes before eating


                              You can use any oil here - organic canola, melted coconut or olive (will give a slight olive taste though)
