Lactation Cookies

I want to share my favorite lactation cookie recipe. Ok, it’s actually the only recipe I’ve made so far, but it’s so good that I haven’t bothered to try anything else!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies


In a hurry, I accidentally made this batch  bigger than usual, so they spread out and flatted a little too much. But they were still delicious!

I’ve never been a big oatmeal person so I love that this dough is basically regular cookie dough. When I make these, I only use about 1 1/3 cups of oats. I also like to mix chocolate chips and M&Ms 🙂

This is a really easy recipe, and it’s pretty quick to whip up, which is great because who has time to cook with a baby?

Unless you eat them all the time, lactation cookies won’t permanently increase your milk supply, but they are a delicious way to give your supply a boost. I usually notice an increase about 6-8 hours after I eat them.

Be careful not to eat too many in one day, or you may become super engorged.

Try these out and tell me what you think! Or share your own favorite recipe for lactation cookies below – I’d love to try something new!
