Dairy Free Lactation Cookie Recipe

lactation cookie recipe

Lactation Cookies are one of the best gifts to bring a nursing mother.

In fact, they’re healthy for anyone:  1. high in B vitamins (yeast) and 2. vegan protein (oats, flax) 3. digestive aids (fenugreek – which tastes like maple syrup!).

Many new moms are dairy-free, as dairy is a common infant allergy. Here’s a nice lactation cookie recipe that is safe for people with dairy allergies or sensitivities.
