Mama Love Chocolate Protein Lactation Cookies

chocolate protein lactation cookies to boost breast milk and support muscle recovery

There are loads of lactation cookie recipes out there (go ahead and Google!), and while most of them do what you’d expect—taste great and give your breast milk supply a lift, most of them are straight up carbs.

I wanted to give you a protein-powered option, so I created this simple recipe that swaps out processed wheat flour for oats and Mama Love Chocolate Protein. They’re definitely more dense than your typical chocolate chip cookie, but this is a lactation-boosting treat you can feel good about downing!

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup Flax meal (ground flaxseeds)
  • ½ cup Water
  • 6 Tbsp. Coconut Oil, melted
  • ¾ cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 ½ cups Oat Flour
  • ½ cup Mama Love Chocolate Protein
  • ½ tsp. Baking Soda
  • ¼ tsp. Salt
  • ½ cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • ¾ cup Dark Chocolate Chips

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Make flax eggs by mixing flax meal with water in a small bowl and setting aside to thicken; about 10 minutes. In a medium bowl, stir together coconut oil, sugar, and vanilla. In a large bowl, sift together oat flour, Mama Love Chocolate Protein, baking soda, and salt. Beat flax meal mixture (flax eggs) into sugar mixture. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir well; batter will be thick. Add in oats and chocolate chips. Drop dough by heaping tablespoon onto lined cookies sheets; a small ice cream scoop comes in handy here. Place in oven and bake until cookies are golden; about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and gently press cookies with the back of a spatula or wooden spoon to flatten. Cool completely on baking sheet before serving. Makes about 20 cookies.
