The Original Miracle Milkookies Recipe

The idea of turning Miracle Milkookies into a business came from the success of a blog post I wrote in June of 2015 after having my first baby. The blog post was a recipe for lactation cookies I had created based off of my go-to oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe. I called the recipe/blog post, The Miracle Milk Cookie. Over a year and a half later I was on the backend of my blog and discovered that the recipe had gone viral with mentions in Health Magazine, PopSugar and tons of re-pins on Pinterest. When I initially decided to turn this idea into a business, I was advised to take the recipe down. I've had so many of you request that I post the recipe again, so here it is! I want everyone to be able to benefit from these incredible 'Kookies' so if you don't order them from me, hopefully you will have the chance to make them for yourself and get a little extra boost!

  • 2 Tbsp. flaxseed meal {or linseed can be used} 
  • 4 Tbsp. water
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups all purpose flour (Note: I've also used self-rising flour for this recipe, if you use self-rising flour do not add baking soda or salt to the recipe)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2-6 Tbsp. Brewer’s Yeast {This is the active ingredient, so the more the better. I used about 3 Tbsp. and it worked great!}
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. 
  2. Mix together the flaxseed and water and let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cream together the butter and sugars.
  4. Add eggs one at a time and mix well.
  5. Add flaxseed mix and vanilla.
  6. In a medium bowl, combine together flour, baking soda, salt, Brewer’s Yeast, and oats.
  7. Add to the butter mixture 1/2 cup at a time.
  8. Once the dough is mixed together well, add chocolate chips.
  9. Bake for 9-11 minutes.
