I am sharing this recipe because it is honestly the best cookie I have ever made/eaten in my entire life! They are lactation cookies but for those moms who are not breastfeeding could easily leave out the brewer’s yeast and make regular AMAZING cookies! My husband asks me all the time to make “my milk cookies”!
These lactation cookies do use a lot of ingredients! Click the links to find brewers yeast, flaxseed and coconut oil. It is cheaper here than most places. You can also buy brewers yeast from your local GNC but the link is significantly cheaper.

Best Lactation Cookies Ever!
The Dry Ingredients
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
- 5 Tbsp brewers yeast
- 3 Tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1/2 Tsp baking powder
- 1/2 Tsp baking soda
- 1/2 Tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 Tsp salt
- 12 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 4 Tbsp unrefined coconut oil
- 1 1/2 cups cane sugar
- 1 Large egg & 1 large egg yolk
- 2 Tsp vanilla extract
- 1 bag of Ghiradelli milk chocolate baking chips (You can use any kind of chocolate but these are my secret addition!)
Directions for awesome lactation cookies:)
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Take the entire dry ingredient list and throw it into a bowl. Mix together. Set aside.
- In mixer beat butter and coconut oil until creamy.
- Add sugar into the butter/coconut oil mixture and beat until fluffy (4-5 mins) This is very important to the fluffiness of the cookies. Consistency should look like this.
- Then add the egg & egg yolk along with the vanilla extract.
- Add the bowl of dry ingredients and mix well with mixer until all combined.
- Fold in the chocolate chips to the mixture.
- Spray your favorite pan and form dough into balls. I like to make them big because I love these cookies. Two things about this dough. First, it will not stick together as well as traditional cookie dough and that is fine. Secondly, you do not have to place these as far apart on your cookie sheet because they do not really widen.
- Bake 10-14 mins. Play with your oven to figure out which time works best. I bake mine for 10 minutes and no more! They come out soft and I let them cool to become firm. They stay soft this way for days 🙂
ENJOY!! Let me know if you like them!
Warning: You don’t want to eat too many at once because it does increase milk production and the flaxseed can act as a gentle laxative in large amounts.
