Life Through Photos | Lactation Cookie Party

Getting together with other nursing moms and making lactation cookies? Yes Please!

Three of us got together one Sunday afternoon to have a Lactation Cookie Party. It was a great idea. We all had little nurslings (5 months or less) who were in attendance as well. This was a great way to talk about breastfeeding and mommy hood – all while building up our supply. Recipes we used can be found at the bottom of this post.

White Chocolate Chip and Craisins

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Flaxseed Meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 3 cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons Brewer’s Yeast
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup mini white chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup Craisins
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions:

  1. Mix 4 tablespoons of water and flaxseed meal in a bowl – set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer, combine coconut oil, applesauce, sugar, and brown sugar.  Mix well.  It will not be creamy like chocolate chips cookies made with butter.
  3. This is usually when I remember to preheat the oven – Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Mix in eggs, vanilla, and your flaxseed meal mixture.  Mix well.
  5. Add your flour, oats, and fun ingredients (chocolate chips, apple pie spice, etc).  The dough will be sticky.  It takes me 15 minutes to get to this point.
  6. I used a pampered chef cookie scoop – the 1” size I think and placed 12 scoops on a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  You could make the cookies smaller.
  7. Bake for 9 minutes.  They will be slightly soft when you take them out.  Remove to the counter or a baking rack to cool.  I don’t let them sit on the cookie sheet because I want to put the next batch in and minimize my hands on time with these.
