The Best Darn Lactation Cookies

Cook Time 12 minutes
Servings 36 +


  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons brewers yeast
  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 12 generous tablespoons salted butter
  • 4 tablespoons unrefined virgin coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 large egg + 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 or one package milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven the 350 degrees F.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together oats, flour, yeast, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon until well combined.
  3. In your mixer beat the butter and coconut oil on medium speed until creamy.
  4. Add sugar and beat for a few minutes on medium until fluffy (scrap bowl if needed)
  5. Add in egg and yolk and beat to combine on medium.
  6. Add in vanilla and mix until combined.
  7. Slowly add dry ingredients one cup at a time on low speed until combined.
  8. Add in chocolate chips and mix by hand to combine.
  9. Dough will be dry and crumbly but will bind when you form into balls. Form into 1 inch balls and bake on parchment lined sheet for 12 minutes (bottoms will be slightly golden but will allow for a tender cookie with crispy edges). If the dough balls are 1 inch you can expect to get about 40 cookies out of this recipe!
  10. In order to freeze, form balls and freeze on a cookie sheet, then transfer to freezer safe ziploc bag.
  11. If baking from frozen, bake for 14 minutes.
