Are they made with breast milk?
No. We save that for our children.
How many cookies should I eat?
Most moms notice a difference after one cookie, but sometimes it’s helpful to get a jump-start with two cookies. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water.
How do I store the cookies?
If you’re going to be eating your cookies within two weeks, no special storage is necessary. If you plan to make your cookies last longer than two weeks, we recommend storing them in the freezer to ensure the best possible taste. The cookies will last up to six weeks out of the freezer, but since we don’t use any preservatives, they'll taste best if eaten sooner. During the summer we do recommend freezing the cookies to preserve freshness.
Do you use preservatives?
No. We want our cookies to be as healthy and natural as possible, so we don’t put anything in them we wouldn’t want our kids to eat. That includes preservatives!
How long does it take for the cookies to work?
It varies from person to person, but most moms see results within 24 hours.
Can my husband/significant other/kids/other nonlactating people eat these cookies?
Of course! We feed them to our husbands and kids all the time. They’re delicious and full of whole grains. In fact, many customers report that they have to hide them from their family.
What if I eat too many cookies?
We’ve only known of one mom to spring a leak after eating Milkin’ Cookies (and she had an abundant supply to begin with). We have yet to master the no-fat, no-calorie, tasty cookie though, so portion control will be up to you.
How can I make sure that I never run out of Milkin’ Cookies?
We offer a convenient subscription service. We’ll send you cookies on a regular schedule so you’ll never be caught with an empty cookie jar.
Are Milkin’ Cookies safe? Do the cookies contain medication?
Milkin’ Cookies are very safe. The cookies do not contain pharmaceuticals or herbal ingredients, and are full of whole grains. Check out our ingredient list—nothing hard to pronounce or scary!
Do Milkin’ Cookies contain fenugreek?
No. We chose not to use fenugreek in our cookies because fenugreek may cause low blood sugars in premature babies and can cause breathing difficulty for people with asthma.
What makes Milkin’ Cookies special?
We use food galactogogues—foods that can increase milk supply—including oatmeal, whole wheat flour, nutritional yeast, and wheat germ.
Are they safe for people with nut allergies?
Although our Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookies are made without nuts, they are baked in a kitchen that uses nuts in other recipes. Our Cranberry Almond Oatmeal cookies do contain almonds.
How many calories are in each cookie?
We’ve tried to make our cookies as healthy as possible while still keeping them tasty. Milkin’ Cookies are nutritionally comparable to snacks such as Lara Bars. Each cookie has about 210 calories and 10 grams of fat, with about 3 grams of fiber and 4 or 5 grams of protein (depending on flavor). They’re high in many other nutrients, too. For more nutritional information, please see our nutrition labels.
How do you ship Milkin' Cookies?
We ship Milkin’ Cookies via USPS Priority Mail, so cookies typically arrive within 3 business days of the day they’re shipped.
When will I receive my order?
Milkin’ Cookies are baked daily (Monday through Friday, except holidays), and are packaged and shipped on the day they’re baked. Orders are typically shipped on the day after they’re placed (except orders placed on Friday and Saturday, which ship the following Monday). We ship via USPS Priority Mail, which reaches the majority of the US in three days or fewer.
I placed an order for a subscription. How does that work?
You'll receive your first box of 30 cookies within the next few days. After that, a new box of cookies will ship each 30 days. Your credit card will be billed when each box is shipped. You can cancel your subscription at any time--just make sure to do it at least 5-6 days before the next scheduled shipment so the cancellation has time to clear through the system. We now offer a 21 day subscription option as well. (Some moms reported that spouses or gnomes were causing cookies to vanish faster than expected.) For the 21 day option, 30 cookies will ship every 21 days.
