You may have seen recipes on how to make mug cookies in the microwave all over the internet. I have always been interested in making these simple fast snacks. I decided to try to make some for those busy mamas. This lactation cookies recipe took a while to perfect and I wouldn’t say they are 100% perfect yet. They can always be tweaked. Mug cookies aren’t that easy to make taste like a cookie. I wouldn’t say they are the best cookies ever but they are really tasty and can be made any time. This recipe contains ingredients like oatmeal, flax, and Brewer’s Yeast to help those mamas who are breastfeeding. But if you are not breastfeeding and want to try these, just omit the Brewer’s Yeast and they become regular chocolate chip cookies.
For this recipe, start by making the cookie mix. In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients. In the picture I wanted to add some vanilla to my mix, but it didn’t work out and just got clumpy. So maybe add some vanilla sugar if you want some oomph.
Once you have everything mixed, store in an airtight container or jar. I keep my jar in the fridge since this recipe contains ground flax and I don’t want the flax to get rancid.
Once you have the mix you can make these cookies whenever you need that snack. To do that, melt 1 tbsp coconut oil or butter.
Then add 1 Tbsp water to it. Or you can use coconut milk, oat milk, or other liquid of your choice.
Add 1/2 cup of cookie mix to the liquid. You want the dough be be sticky, not too wet and not too dry. If it is too wet, add more cookie mix. If too dry add a little water.
Divide the dough into 4 cookies and place on parchment paper. You can make these in the microwave or toaster oven. For the microwave, cook for 1 min on high. They are done when they are dry looking on the surface. They will still be soft until you cool them. For the toaster oven, bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. They are done when they are golden brown.
Once the cookies are done, allow to cool and firm up before you chow down.

Thanks for the recipe. I would like to make aome lactation cookies with my sourdough discard. How much flour should I swap out for the SD discard?
Hello. I have not tried this before but does sound interesting. I would probably not swap out the flour but instead swap out the water (since the sourdough starter is wet). Instead of 1 tbsp of water, I would try 2 tbsp of starter. Hope that works.
