Lactation Mug Cookie

December 2, 2015

I've got a recipe for you today, and let's not even pretend it's healthy.

It works though, and that's what counts.

I typically eat one of these two days in a row and my supply is back up where I like it (which is basically 8 ounces at 2:30 AM, that's how I gauge my production.)


It's Christmas, and I know you've seen a ton of those Chocolate No Bake Oatmeal Cookies on Pinterest. Heck, I just tend to see them this time of year in general. 

That's where this recipe idea came from, I took what is in one of those cookies and made it super easy to make, higher in brewer's yeast that my Paleo Lactation Cookies, and a single serving so you only make it when you need it. 

Lactation Mug Cookie

serves 1
2 spoons of butter (I used Brummel & Brown to cut calories)
1/2 heaping spoon of Brewer's Yeast
3 spoon of sugar (I used regular and I've used coconut palm)
3 spoons of milk (nondairy, dairy, whatever you have)
1 heaping spoon of cocoa powder
1 heaping spoon of peanut butter
1/4 cup (ish) of Old Fashion Rolled Oats

Combine butter, Brewer's Yeast, milk, and cocoa powder in a coffee mug and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir well and then add in peanut butter. Microwave 30 seconds. Stir well and then add in oatmeal. Stir to combine, adjusting the amount of oatmeal to suit your preference. 

Notes - 
* I say spoon instead of teaspoon or tablespoon because I think I'm using somewhere in the middle. I just use the smaller dinner spoon at our house. It's more about proportions than exact measurements with this, 2 to 1 to 3 of whatever size spoon you use. So long as you put that many of whatever size you're using.

*Adjust the Brewer's Yeast to your liking, I'd add as much as you can stand to eat and not gag, it's bitter stuff. 

*You could also add in flax seed meal, that's another great food for breastfeeding. 

If you've got any other ideas for ways to get your milk supply up, or want me to come up with a recipe for it just let me know. I've been having fun adding Brewer's Yeast to everything.
