Healthy No-Bake Lactation Cookie Recipe

harbor (1)These lactation cookies are delicious, healthy, and super easy to make. I hardly had time to shower in those first months, let alone bake cookies!

After a few tries, these came out perfect. They are by far my most requested recipe by friends, and now a go-to treat present for the new moms I know too. Enoy!

(I’d also start off eating just one and see what happens. I felt a big milk boost after eating just one, but got a clogged duct after I over indulged one day.)

1 ½ cups dry old fashioned oats
½ cup nut butter (I found traditional peanut butters worked the best. Barney Butter is a good solution too.)
½ cup ground flaxseed
2 TB brewers yeast
¾ cups chocolate chips (I use the mini Energy Life chips that are dairy, soy free)
1/3 cup honey

Stir all ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Once chilled, roll into balls. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week. Makes 20-25 1” balls.
