Lactation Cookies Recipe No Sugar Deconstruction

Lactation cookie recipes are delicious and great for a treat. However, as a regular snack, these guys have just way too much sugar for me! Try my alternative recipe – there is no added sugar and has almost the same ingredients. And there’s no baking… OK, so they’re not cookies either – they’re what I call “deconstructed” lactation cookies. And it’s sweet enough it still feels like a treat!

They’re so easy to make and perfect for nursing moms who don’t have time to bake.

Sugarless Lactation Cookies


1 cup raw natural oats

Handful of raisins

Dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt

2 Tbsp ground flax

1 cup of milk (dairy, nondairy or even breastmilk will work)
