Whitney Rowell, Miracle Milkookies
I first learned about lactation cookies when my friend dropped them on my doorstep after having my first baby in 2015. I honestly had NO idea what a lactation cookie was, but I did know they really helped me. I googled lactation producing ingredients and added it to my go-to oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe. I made the cookies and couldn't believe how great they still tasted, plus I was making SO MUCH MORE MILK!! I posted the recipe to my blog (that only my mom read) and called it 'The Miracle Milk Cookie,' which I have taken down, but I'm sure you can find it somewhere! I initially planned to only share the recipe with friends, but over time I realized so many other moms who discovered the recipe were benefitting from the cookies, so I decided that I might as well turn this into a business. By 2018, we finally found an amazing kitchen to bake our cookies (I was baking every single cookie out of my house up to that point!) and that same month, we started shipping to mamas everywhere! The best part about this company is that our kookies have helped so many moms and even more babies.
