Cinnamon Apple and Pecan Oatmeal Cookies (Lactation Cookies)


  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp ground sea salt
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¾ cups ground flax seed
  • 1 cup grass-fed butter, softened
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup unsweetened organic apple sauce
  • ¾ cup raw turbinado (or cane) sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups oats (not quick oats)
  • 1 cup finely-chopped pecans
  • 1 ½ cup organic raisins


  1. In a small bowl mix together the first 6 ingredients
  2. In a large bowl cream together the butter, honey, apple sauce, and sugar
  3. Beat the eggs and vanilla into the wet ingredients
  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix together just until moist
  5. Now mix in the oats, pecans, and and raisins. Mix just until incorporated
  6. Roll dough into balls and place onto non-stick baking sheet, flatten balls slightly with hand. Bake for 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees until they just begin to brown.


Store in the fridge (ground flax spoils quickly at room temperature), or enjoy them from the freezer for a few weeks!
