Oat Cookie Recipe to Support Breastfeeding

HotTea Mama oat cookie recipe to support breastfeeding

To accompany your Milk's Up breastfeeding cuppa – get baking. Try these oat cookies as they’re super easy and tasty. 

Oats are a natural galactagogue like fenugreek, fennel and anise - the key ingredients in our nursing tea.  So eating these is a great thing to do to boost or support milk supply.




120g butter

2 tablespoons honey

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

120g plain flour

120g brown sugar

180g porridge oats


  1. Melt butter with honey in a saucepan gently
  2. Take off the heat and mix in 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar and oats
  4. Add the honey mix to this
  5. Stir and leave to cool for 5 minutes once it is all well combined
  6. Place 12 piles of the mix on a buttered baking tray and cook for 10-15 min
  7. Let them cool, and they turn into slightly hard, chewy biscuits


You can add chocolate chips, raisins, or anything else you fancy.  But they’re a crowd pleaser, and a wee treat goes a long way in times of stress and uncertainty.
