You will find heaps of recipes online for “lactation cookies” (for helping boost supply during breast feeding). Some recipes are better for you than others. I wanted to give them a go… so I created my own healthy vegan recipe combining the key ingredients: oats, flax and yeast.

You can whip these up in just a few minutes and they are totally delicious. You can bang out a batch during your bub’s power nap (I promise). Even my non-mummy friends enjoyed them!

Enjoy with a cuppa of your favourite nursing tea blend which includes Fenugreek.

  5. Add the liquid coconut oil, apple puree and vanilla extract to the same small bowl and stir.
  6. Combine the wet and dry ingredients in the mixing bowl until a stiff dough is formed. You might need to add a very small amount more water if the dough is a little dry.
  7. Form the dough into 12 balls and spread out evenly on a greased baking tray.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until firm on the outside and still soft in the middle.
