The best chickpea cookie dough ever, high protein, lactation cookie

Chickpea Lactation Cookie Dough (Vegan + Gluten Free)

My FAVORITE snack while breastfeeding! The chickpeas, double protein oats, and peanut butter make this a high protein snack, and the gluten-free brewer's yeast and flax and an extra punch for those looking to increase milk supply. I am totally addicted to this chickpea lactation cookie dough! (Also makes nice cookies).

  • Food Processor


  • 1 1/4 cups cooked chickpeas or, one can
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter organic
  • 2 cup whole oats
  • 1/2 cup unrefined coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 cup flax ground
  • 1/4 cup brewer's yeast gluten free
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips organic


  • Add all the ingredients except the chocolate chips to a food processor, and process until desired smoothness. Add chocolate chips and mix by hand. Enjoy!


  • To Freeze- I would make cookie dough bites, freeze them individually on a big plate (not touching), and then after several hours move them into a pyrex or ziplock for freezer storage. They defrost very quickly- you can enjoy as quickly as 15 minutes after taking out of the freezer! You can also freeze the finished cookies the same way if you bake them- freeze separately on a plate, not touching, and then transfer to a ziplock or pyrex.
  • To Store- Keep it covered in the fridge, and eat within 5 days or so. I kept mine in a big glass pyrex and usually serve it in a small bowl.
