Snacking is serious business when it comes to breastfeeding and these gluten free lactation cookies are a wonderful way to make that job a bit easier. They are loaded with fantastic ingredients that will curb your hunger and keep you feeling energised. Most importantly- they are delicious.


  • 125 / ½ cup butter, melted and cooled (swap for coconut oil if dairy free)
  • 1 egg, at room temp
  • 130170 / 3/4-1 cup coconut sugar
  • 36g / 3 T flax seeds, ground
  • 2 Tbsp brewers yeast
  • 240g / 2 cups almond meal
  • 135g / 1 ½ cups rolled oats (certified GF if needed)
  • 50g  / ½ cup collagen powder (see notes)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp fine salt
  • 85g / ½ cup choc chips
  • 60g / ½ cup frozen raspberries (see notes)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Line 2 x baking trays and set aside.
  2. Into a large mixing bowl add the melted butter, egg, sugar and flax seeds. Whisk together until thick and uniform.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients except the raspberries and choc chips. Mix well, using your hands if needed. The mix will seem dry at first but keep kneading it together- it will come together.
  4. Once a dough has formed gently fold through choc chips and raspberries. Take approx 2 Tbsp worth of dough (50g) and squeeze/roll into a ball. Flatten slightly into a disc, and place on prepared tray. Repeat, spacing 6 cookies per tray. They will spread!
  5. Bake each tray for approx 15 minutes (mine are perfect at 15, but your oven may be different). Remove from oven. If cookies have spread a little unevenly you can press the outer edges to make them look round again- but do it straight away. Allow cookies to cool for 20 mins on tray, then carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Note- if you want to bake multiple trays at once, swap trays at the 6 minute mark.


  • I used this collagen here, which has vanilla in there. If you use a different brand the is unflavoured I would add 2 too vanilla to these cookies.
  • If you add more raspberries, or a different type of berry, beware that it may cause your cookies to become soft.
