Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies

Gluten Free Lactation Cookies are perfect whether you’re a new mom or making some for a lactating friend! These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are super simple and packed with wholesome ingredients!

Prep: 10 minsCook: 10 minsTotal: 20 mins
Servings: 12 1x


  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax meal
  • 1/2 cup refined coconut oil (unsalted butter also works)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Brewer’s yeast
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups gluten free oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • couple pinches of sea salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Combine the water and flax seed meal in a small bowl and set aside for about 5 minutes. This will turn into a flax egg.
  3. In a larger bowl, whisk together the coconut oil (unsalted butter works too), coconut sugar, Brewer’s yeast, and vanilla.
  4. Add the flax egg to the large bowl and whisk everything together.
  5. Add the oats, coconut, cinnamon, and salt.
  6. Fold everything together.
  7. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  8. Use an ice cream scooper to scoop balls into your hands.
  9. Pack them in your hands super tight and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  10. Bake for 10 minutes.
  11. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan. They really set and come together on the pan so don’t try to remove them too soon.
  12. Once cool, reshape the cookies with your hands (if needed) and store in the fridge. I find they really congeal after you pop them in the fridge for an hour or so!


  • Please note that not all brewer’s yeasts are gluten free. Check out this one that I use that is certified gluten free 🙂
