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.
