This is our family’s go-to cookie recipe. They are so simple and quick to make and the whole family loves them. Even the fussy kids. They love to help to make them too. We have been making them for years as my son is allergic to cow’s milk proteins and I breastfed for 7 years and the oat in these is great for boosting milk supply. The oats in the cookies have a high concentration of saponins, an immune-stimulating compound that may help increase levels of prolactin which is a key hormone for milk production. The flaxseed meal adds omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. But whether you are a nursing mama or not, you’ll love these soft and chewy dairy free cinnamon and raisin oatmeal cookies that taste like a loving hug. Our whole family enjoys eating these for days when we have made them.
