Lactation Cookies

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Lactation Cookies

So I recently put a post up on my Facebook page about some lactation cookies I had made. I ended up getting more emails and private messages than I knew what to do with. So I decided to get this recipe up fast so that everyone would be able to make them!

  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 1 1/2 c oats can be quick oats
  • 1 tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 2 tsp. Brewers yeast
  • 1 1/2 c sugar
  • 3/4 c shortening
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp. all spice
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 10 oz bag Dairy Free mini chocolate chips


  1. Heat oven to 350 (I baked at 325 in convection oven)
  2. In medium bowl sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, all spice and cocoa.
  3. In stand mixer on medium speed, add shortening, sugar and vanilla. Add in eggs one at a time. Mix on medium high for 1-2 minutes to ensure well combined.

  4. Turn mixer to lowest setting in slowly add in flour mixture. Mix until just combined.
  5. Remove bowl from mixer and add in oats, mini chocolate chips, yeast and flaxseed. Mix by hand.
  6. These cookies work best when on silpat or parchment paper on your baking sheet. I made each cookie roughly a tablespoon and placed about 2 inches apart.

  7. Bake for 7-9 minutes and then cool on cooling rack. Keep a close eye on these cookies and remove when edges are just barely browned. The center may appear slightly "wet" and that is ok. Cookie will continue to bake after it is removed from oven.
