Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies

I’ve chosen to exclusively breastfeed my 4 month old daughter. Some days I worry I don’t have enough milk, when I do, I turn to these cookies. I tried a couple different recipes online, they were all great but I felt they were high in calories. So I swapped out a couple high fattening ingredients to add some more health to these.

Even if you aren’t breast feeding or looking to make more milk, these are just good cookies with healthy ingredients. It’s a win-win:)

Ingredients

  • 3 C Quaker Oats
  • 1 1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour
  • 3 TBSP. Brewer’s Yeast
  • 5 TBSP. Ground Flaxseed
  • 1 TSP. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 TSP. Cinnamon
  • 1/4 TSP. Salt
  • 1 Avocado
  • 4 TBSP. Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 1/2 C Sugar
  • 1 C Chocolate Chips

Directions

  • Mix all dry ingredients, except sugar, together
  • In separate bowl, mix avocado, peanut butter & sugar
  • Note for peanut butter, try to use the oil that pools on the top for more liquid and better mixing
  • Add dry ingredient to wet
  • Mix in chocolate chips
  • Roll into balls
  • If you don’t like “ball” style cookies, flatten with a spatula
  • Bake for 12 minutes on 350.
  • Enjoy!
