Tip

Brewers Yeast has quite a strong flavour which is why the recipe says 2-4 tablespoons. I personally add 3 heaped.

I like my cookies nice and chocolatey but you can halve the choc chips (or even add more!) and they are still yummy!

I empty the mixture into a separate bowl and then use a small (half size) metal icecream scoop to get the cookies all the same size.

The milk increasing (galactagogues) ingredients in the recipe are the oats, linseed and brewers yeast.

Bake for 12 mins for soft in the middle cookies, or a little longer if you like them crunchy.

    I can't comment yet on milk production properties but just on taste alone, these were so good. I made the dough prior to the birth of bub and froze it so defrosted a roll and baked them. Even hubby likes the taste of them. Will definitely be making these often and hope they do work well for milk supply.

  • Great recipe that really works! I did substitute...

    Submitted by Justineo on 27. October 2017 - 12:27.

    Great recipe that really works! I did substitute quiet a fe of the ingredients with what I had in the pantry:

    Instead of:
    butter - coconut oil
    Brown sugar - dates
    egg - chia egg
    Chocolate - sultanas

    I used 2 heaped table spoons of the brewers yeast.

    lol I know it seems like I changed the recipe all together, but I loved how this recipe was a great guide.

    The dough was quiet sticky to form balls so I just used a small icecream scoop and popped it onto the baking tray. I didn’t attempt to flatten the cookies until they were baked for 10-12 mins and straight after they came out of the oven I flattened them with a spoon.

    They came out so delicious, chewy because of the dates and you couldn’t even taste the brewers yeast. Everyone loves them, even though they are lactation cookies, but what’s incredible is that I believe they really work.

    I was having issues with my supply, bubs seemed constantly hungry the last week, having eaten these I feel like my supply is back up again, and I leaked heaps after only a couple of days eating them. Now I feel like I have an over supply in the early mornings, so I need to slow down.

    These are so good! I have made them three times now for my DIL and they don't dissapoint, everyone eats them now! I only used two level tablespoons of yeast and that's perfect for us as it tasted too yeasty for our liking. I cut the sugars to 50g each. Perfect thank you so much for sharing 😊

    Submitted by Cpok on 12. January 2016 - 13:49.

    Yum!

    Easy and delicous. I used 150g sugar and medjool dates as the add ins and found these bikkies plenty sweet enough. Definitely reduce sugar if you don't like things super sweet. I substituted the egg for a tbl sp of chia seeds soaked for a few minutes in four tbl sp water. Also used wholemeal flour and doubled the flax meal. Made heaped table spoons into balls, flattened slightly and baked for 13 mins, worked out perfectly- nice and chewy.

    Older kids enjoying them too.

  • I made these with spelt

    Submitted by Jazwa on 3. July 2015 - 08:51.

    I made these with spelt flour, and added sultanas, dried cranberries, slivered almonds and pine nuts! It bulked up the mix, giving me at least 30 bikkies which have a bit more protein to satisfy the rumbles during my midnight feed.  I'm going to reduce the sugar a bit next time because the fruit adds some sweetness, but these are so yummy I even serve them up to my unwitting visitors with a cuppa and get rave reviews

    Instead of choc chips I used 50 grams dried cranberries as I was worried using choc chips would be counter productive (I've read chocolate can dry up your milk supply). The dried cranberries were a good substitute.

    I would definitely cook these again  tmrc_emoticons.) and I agree the instructions are easy to read, thank you  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by Russella on 23. April 2014 - 12:13.

    I've made these twice now and each time the cookies haven't lasted very long! Although they are intended for mummy, hubby and kids have all eaten them - and love them. I used 4 tablespoons of Brewers Yeast, only 100 - 125grams of choc bits, doubled the flaxseed and water mix and added some Chia seeds (my new favorite thing!) and they worked out a treat. I only got 24 biscuits (obviously I made mine a little larger) and cooked them for 13 minutes, they came out prefect. I'll be making these again and again, even when I'm not breast feeding, they just taste so yummy! Thanks for the recipe, we will continue to enjoy them in the times ahead!  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Winner!  I had so many

    Submitted by elenore1973 on 12. October 2013 - 08:02.

    Winner!  I had so many problems in the early days of breast-feeding with my first (as most of us do) that when I had my second 3 months ago I was extremely paranoid constantly about not having enough milk.  I mentioned this to my child health nurse who gave me a non-thermomix lactation cookie recipe that another one of her clients swore by.  I did a search through the Recipe Community and found a few recipe for lactation cookies but I think I went with this one because it most resembed the recipe given to me.  They are delish and I swear they actually work.  It makes a big batch and I freeze them giving myself 3 a day.  With a toddler and other general life pressures I don't have time to rest as recommended (who does?) and I've noticed that on the days where I have the cookies my supply is much better.  I swear it's true! 

     

    Also, kudos on the good instructions.  One of my pet hates on this site are poor instructions.  I don't put as much sugar in as stated in the recipe but the sweetness would depend on what you are putting in with them.  Definetly with choc chips you don't need as much sugar. 

     

    Well done and thanks.
