    Thumbs up Lactation Boosting Cookies

    These cookies are so yummy...and I've found they helped boost my own supply. I make them with the baking M&m's - yummy! Careful who eats them, or your partner may start lactating..lol!

    Housepoet's Famous Lactation Boosting Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip & Flaxseed cookies


    Housepoet's Famous Lactation Boosting Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip & Flaxseed cookies �
    Ingredients :

    * 1 cup butter or marg
    * 1 cup sugar
    * 1 cup brown sugar
    * 4 tablespoons water
    * 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal*
    * 2 large eggs
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla
    * 2 cups flour
    * 1 teaspoon baking soda
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 3 cups oats, thick cut if you can get them
    * 1 cup or more chocolate chips
    * 2 tablespoons of brewers yeast* (be generous)

    Directions:

    Preheat oven at 375 degrees F. Mix together 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal and water, set aside for 3-5 minutes. Cream (beat well) margarine and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mix well. Stir flaxseed mixture and add with vanilla to the margarine mix. Beat until blended. Sift together dry ingredients, except oats and chips. Add to margarine mixture. Stir in oats then chips. Scoop or drop onto baking sheet, preferably lined with parchment or silpat. The dough is a little crumbly, so it helps to use a scoop.

    Bake 8-12 minutes, depending on size of cookies.

    Serves: 6 dozen cookies

    Preparation time: 15 minutes

    *can be found at any local health food store.
    *NOTE* IT MUST BE BREWERS YEAST, NO SUBSTITUTIONS.

    I made these for a friend who's having supply issues and they were so flippin' good. You can feel yourself lactating as you nibble on them. If you don't like chocolate, who doesn't like chocolate tho, you can substitute for carob chips, raisins, butterscotch chips, whatever.

    Friday is baking day so I will be whipping me up a batch of these!!

    Hang on - brewer's yeast... I have regular old yeast for baking bread, that's not good enough? Or could I use double the quantity of regular yeast?

    I used the beer making yeast.

    I think you can get brewers yeast from a health food store as well!

    I think regular yeast would give you bread-cookies, lol

    It must be the brewers yeast because I have another recipe for improving milk.
    I can't remember the quantities but it is a milk drink of the following
    milk
    banana
    brewers yeast
    complan

    Mix it all up in a milk shake and drink whenever you can. Its supposed to improve the quality of the milk. I haven't tried it but I will let you know what effect it has.

    Oats, flaxseed and brewers yeast all do amazing things to your milk supply. I eat a big bowl of oats everyday, with flaxseed sprinkled on top. Make sure its flaxseed meal though otherwise it will pass straight through you

    I went out and bought all these ingredients today

    So I plan on using them... soon... I was wondering someone said the dough was freezable, are the cookies themselves freezable, or how long do they last in the fridge/in a container?



    Thanks
