I made these lactation cookies to promote milk production for breastfeeding. They’re yummy! My supply is actually an oversupply. I ate these in the days leading up to giving birth as well as after Kurt was born. Perhaps they had something to do with the abundance of milk I came into.
I came up with the recipe based on a few that I looked at online. It seems like the key ingredients for milk production are probably:
- Brewer’s yeast (can not use any other kind of yeast – not nutritional yeast or other)
- Ground flaxseed (also helpful for treating PCOS)
- Oats and wheat germ (fiber is supposed to be good for milk supply)
- Organic Butter (healthy animal fat)
It’s very easy to veganize this recipe; instructions for both regular and vegan are below.
Ingredients (with vegan option)

I saw this bag on A Cup of Jo (click through for a 25% coupon through December; $120 regular price). This bag is called The Catalina and it’s made by a company called Lo & Sons (family owned and run I believe).
I am leaning towards the dark grey one but they also have a light grey, a yellow/green, and a purple/grey (“thistle”).
Anyone who has known me for more than an hour knows that I love hoodies. I will wear dress pants or a dress/skirt and “ruin” the outfit with one of my favorite comfy grey hoodies. This is the latest hoodie that I’ve been eyeing:
