Here is my recipe for gluten-free lactation cookies. When my family went gluten-free for my daughter this year, I made a couple of batches of regular lactation cookies that I got off of Pinterest, and it was a royal pain hiding cookies for my little girl. So I experimented for a while to make gluten-free lactation cookies. I gave this recipe to my milk-tastic friend who felt like her supply was dropping. She texted me later that day, “Holy milk-boost Batman!” I was thrilled these worked so well for her. So I really feel selfish keeping this happy secret to myself. I usually make a double batch because I go through them so quickly. I hope you like them as much as we do at my house!
Milk Boost Cookies
- 1 stick of butter
- 4 Tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
- 2 3/4 cups Gluten-free old fashioned oats
- 2-3 tablespoons nutritional flakes
- 1 tablespoon flax seeds or flax meal
- 1/2 cup raisins and/or 1/2 soy-free chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Cream butter, coconut oil and sugar together. Add egg and beat until incorporated, stir in honey and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together coconut flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, nutritional flakes and flax. Add dries to the sugar and oil mixture. Then stir in oats and raisins and/or chocolate chips. Using 1-2 tablespoons, form into balls and then place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and press down.* Bake for 15-19 minutes.
*Because these are gluten-free, once they are cooked they look pretty much the way they did on the pan when you placed them there so shape them the way you want them to look.
