    • Kate - Kat's Assistant

  • sandie carter

    Thanks for reminding me about these yummy cookies. A dear friend shared this recipe many years ago but she called them chockky rocks. Same recipe with a different name.ReplyCancel

    • Karen

      Yes, Chockky Rocks is the correct name for kids born in the 60s and 70s like me. My grandmother always had these when we visited. I recently found her recipe book and she had this recipe cut from the Cornflakes box back in the 70s stuck in it. Lots of memories in that recipe for me.ReplyCancel

      • Kate

        Yes! Chocky Rocks were a bit favourite when I was growing up. And they were my grandad’s favourite, too.ReplyCancel

  • Kate - Kat's Assistant

    Haha love the name Sandie, Chokky Rocks! .:)ReplyCancel

  • You are so creative! It’s my first time to hear making a chip with corn flakes. Love it!ReplyCancel

    This is a guest post by Vicki from Boiled Eggs and Soldiers As it’s the school holidays I’ve been thinking about activities to do with the kids. I’m not so much of a crafty Mum, unless it’s something they can do on their own (that doesn’t involve glitter, or paint…) but I’m 100% a cooking Mum (and also […]

    Would you please try to post this recipe again. Thank youReplyCancel

    Hi, just wondering if you have any sugar free type kids lunch snacks. Trying to use other sweeteners rather than sugar and also trying to replace white flour with other types such as spelt flour. Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.ReplyCancel

Honey Biscuits are a very quick and easy biscuit to make, you should already have all these items in your fridge or pantry.

  • These look delish, I love a good biccie recipe. I will get my resident baker (15 year old daughter) on to it straight away!ReplyCancel

  • Amanda

    Could you have more honey & less sugar do you think?ReplyCancel

  • Andrea

    Are the qualities right in the recipe, or is it missing milk?
    I seem to have a bowl of what resembles bread crumbs. I have put everything the recipe asks for.ReplyCancel

  • Keera

    I’m with Andrea, a bowl of breadcrumbs. Is there an ingredient missing? ThanksReplyCancel

    • Andrea

      I ended up adding milk, but added too much and got a sticky mess but got some biscuits in the end. So maybe 3tbs?ReplyCancel

Lactation biscuits are a moist and yummy cookie that will help to boost and maintain a breastfeeding mums milk supply.

Continue Reading...

  • Katie

    I’ve tried a couple of different recipes for lactation biscuits and they work a treat! Made it much easier to juggle going back to work with expressing to maintain my supply & breastfeeding on my days at home- well worth the effortReplyCancel

  • Saw these via twitter… i have a banana/nut/flax/chia slice that I make that is DELISH and it has lots of milk boosting properties! It’s on my blog and my kiddies LOVE it too!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Ooh they sound really yummy too, Bek!.:)ReplyCancel

  • Carissa

    As a midwife I thoroughly recommend these cookies in boosting supply.
    A recipe I also share a lot is “Tigers milk”

    1 cup full cream milk
    1/2 cup acidophyllis yoghurt
    1 Tablespoon complan powder (or milk powder)
    1 banana
    1 tsp yeast flakes
    +/- ice cream
    Mix in a blender. Makes 3-4 cups which you should drink over the day.

    Its really really important to keep bf mums well fed and watered, something thats not always easy to rememberReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      ooh yum a drink is a clever idea!ReplyCancel

  • Bjay

    Definitely worth the effort
    Monash Medical even has a recipe for Lactation Cookies available to copy for ‘new Mums’ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Thanks Bjay that will be a great help to some 😉ReplyCancel

  • juanita

    lactation cookies really do work!, they were better than any medication I was given to boost supply. the same ingredients work really well in a smoothie too if you need to cut down on oils and sugar. Be careful giving to new mums, or only have a small amount, as I made them for a friend then she had so much milk she got mastitis!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      great tips Juanita, especially adding to a smoothie, thank you :)ReplyCancel

I LOVE Nigella, she is beautiful, her style of cooking is so homely and she has such a clever way with words it draws me in every time.  The family were wanting something gooey and chocolately recently and I have wanted to try Nigella’s Totally Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie for awhile.  It’s completely naughty and […]

A friend of mine recently told me about a recipe, Cherry Ripe Balls.   She knows me ooh to well, Cherry Ripes are my most favourite chocolate bar and funnily enough after my surgery it’s one of the only chocolate bars I can stomach, many of the others are too sweet for me now. I […]

  • Lisa

    Wondering what are cherry ripe bars? and Nice biscuits?ReplyCancel

    • Clare

      where are you from Lisa? These are an aussie chocolate bar with cherries and coconut inside and covered in dark chocolate. Nice biscuits are just a sweet plain biscuit :)ReplyCancel

    • Aah Lisa I’m presuming you are not Aussie. Here in Australia Cherry ripe bar is the most delicious chocolate, it’s chocolate on the outside and cherry and coconut on the inside. Nice biscuits are a dry sweet biscuit with sugar on the outside.ReplyCancel

  • AMS

    Sounds awesome, what size cherry ripe bars did you use ?ReplyCancel

    • Clare

      I would assume the standard size or king size as there is a large quantity of biscuit included :)ReplyCancel

    • I used the small ones, but you could use the bigger variety would be a stronger cherry ripe flavourReplyCancel

  • Diandra

    Just wondering how many balls does this recipe make??ReplyCancel

  • Amanda

    I will have to try these. I have made them like a regular Rumball with the cocoa & rum too. Have also used ‘Fry’s Turkish delight’ bars too. YUMMM !ReplyCancel

  • Leah

    Do you use standard size cherry ropes or treat size?ReplyCancel

  • Christine

    can you suggest an alternative to condensed milk?ReplyCancel

  • Yvonne

    Hi Kat. My favourite chocolate bar is also cherry ripe…I made these awhile agoand instead of the chocolate bars I added cadbury mint flavoured drinking chocolate..they were such a hit at school that they wanted them for their break up party. You could a l ways add glaced cherries, craisins, sultanas, rum,ReplyCancel
