If you read my two articles about Healing My Breast Abscess and Relactating and Boosting Milk Supply, then you know I’ve struggled with my milk supply, and regaining my supply was hugely important to me. I tried everything and found many lactation cookies that worked well. However, buying them became expensive, and the recipes had quite a bit of white flour and white sugar, and I wanted a healthier version.

No-Bake Cookie Recipe
1 ¼ Cups Peanut Butter
¼ Cup Organic Honey
7 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
1/3 Cup Organic Coconut Oil
6 Tablespoons Unsweetened Dark Cocoa Powder
4 Tablespoons Brewer’s Yeast
3 Tablespoons Ground Flaxseed
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
2 ¼ Cups Old-Fashioned Oats
1 Cup Walnuts
- Combine peanut butter, honey, butter, and coconut oil and warm on the stove. Remove from heat and add in vanilla. Stir gently and then add cocoa power, Brewer’s Yeast, and flaxseed.
- After it’s well-combined, add the oats and walnuts.
- Drop these onto plates covered in wax paper and then place in the refrigerator.
I keep mine in the fridge since I like them hard, and the coconut oil causes them to get really soft if too warm. I’ve also enjoyed them frozen. They are wonderful for the warm months because it’s a chilled treat. *Also, a few times I added some chocolate protein powder for added protein–about one or two scoops.
Taste Disclosure: These are not meant for a heavenly taste bud experience. Their taste can be strong with the Brewer’s Yeast and somewhat chewy with the Flaxseed and Old-Fashioned Oats. However, they will help you produce milk and save you from spending a ton of money on store-brought versions, so if that’s what you want, then try them! You can modify the ingredients more or less depending on what you like, too, so don’t feel like you can’t alter it at all. I alter about every dish I fix, so get creative!
