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.
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)
1. Put all of the ingredients except for the milk into a cereal bowl.
2. Add the milk and stir.
3. Let it soak for a minimum of 5 minutes, less if you like raw oats and more if you like soft oats. The one below soaked for about 10 minutes.
4. Eat and enjoy!
