Oatmeal Raisin Lactation Cookies (Gluten-Free)


Oatmeal Raisin Lactation Cookies by Ashley of MyHeartBeets.com

These oatmeal raisin cookies are the perfect wintertime (lactation) snack! They’re made with warming spices, and three ingredients thought to help boost milk supply: gluten-free rolled oats, Brewer’s yeast, and flaxseed meal.

For any moms out there who might be sensitive to oats: you can use gluten-free rolled oats (you can find them at Trader Joe’s or whole foods). If you can’t eat oats, then try my paleo n’oatmeal raisin cookies! Just add a little Brewer’s yeast and flaxseed meal to make them “lactation cookies” 🙂

I’ve been all about lactation recipes lately -have you seen my recipe for paleo lactation mithai or lactation bars? I think they’re a great way to provide new mommas with the energy they need during what can be an exhausting time.

I love how much these cookies remind me of the holiday season. The toasty oats, chewy raisins, and sweet spices are perfect for this time of year. Nursing mommas definitely deserve to indulge in healthy holiday treats now and then, so if you know any new moms – make them a batch of these cookies 🙂
