Plus, there are a lot of foods that you can add to your diet to try and get your body to produce more.  These easy no bake lactation cookies are full of those ingredients that will help you to keep your mammaries happy!

Gather together your ingredients. The main bulk of these cookies is from oatmeal, which is known to be great for milk supply, and it’s also great for boosting energy! Milk has tons of calcium and EFA, and it also helps boost milk production. Nuts, flaxseed and brewer’s yeast are also agents for helping increase your supply!

Hi! Thanks for sharing this recipe. Can I replace the milk with almond milk? Would I use the same amount? (I'm baking for my niece who is lactose-intolerant. Thanks again.

I have never left a review on anything but here I am because you need to make these! They are so good and almost taste like brownie batter. I can’t speak for the milk supply yet because I just finished licking the bowl but the taste is definitely 10/10. Thank you!

Any butter will work. Unsalted is best. I have used off-brand, name brand and even plant butter. All worked well.

So delicious! The butter and peanut butter keep it nice and moist. I cut down the sugar by half a cup and still worked great. Thank you!
