Milk Boost Cookies (gluten-free)


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

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.
