I recently came up with healthier lactation cookies recipe, while not as delicious as their counterparts, they are a lot healthier for you and your baby!

No Sugar Added Lactation Cookies

These lactation cookies are nutritious and help moms make more milk. Just a little brewer's yeast goes a long way.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 12 cookies


  • 2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp Brewers Yeast
  • 1/2 cup crushed walnuts, almonds, or your favorite nut
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup raisins (you can use more or less)
  • 3 tbsp ground fenugreek
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp ground clove, 1/4 tsp allspice)


  1. In a large bowl, mix all of your dry ingredients together: oats, brewer's yeast, salt, baking powder, baking soda, ground fenugreek and pumpkin pie spice.

  2. Puree the banana using a hand mixer or a fork. Add the eggs and coconut oil and give it a good mix.

  3. Add your wet ingredients to the dry and mix well. Then, add in your oats and gently mix by hand so you don't break them. You can use a mixer but it loses its oatmeal cookie texture.
  4. Add raisins, almonds, walnuts, or whatever nut/seed of your choosing. These are for extra nutritional value.
  5. Drop 2 tablespoons (or use a cookie scoop) onto a prepared cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. I use parchment paper so I don't have to grease a pan. Press the cookie dough down just a bit.

  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on your cookie size. Cook them on a rack before eating. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This will make about 12-14 cookies, but you can make smaller cookies by cutting the tablespoon 1/2 or make extra large cookies by adding a tablespoon.
