lactation boost cookies

Yes. They actually do work.

I have had many requests for this recipe recently, so I thought I would share it here. Unfortunately I do not have the original source, it was given to me by a friend almost five years ago.

These cookies are delicious. They are sweet, have some healthy ingredients so you can feel not-to-guilty when you eat the whole batch your selves. And you're hubbies will probably steal some too, feel free to let him now that the cookies will not make him lactate. I have had men ask me this.

These cookies freeze great. I usually make a double batch and have some on hand for when a friend has a new baby. Finally, since I know you are interested, the ingredient that makes the milk come in is Brewers Yeast. Have you ever heard to drink a beer if you are having trouble getting our milk in? Something about Brewers Yeast does the trick. You can find this at Whole Foods, or other health food stores. And don't feel bad if you want to make these cookies just because. I make them and eat them all the time, and trust me…there is no nursing going on here.

Lactation Boost Cookies

1 c butter, soft
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
4 T water
2 T flaxseed meal
2 large eggs
1 t vanilla
2 c flour (you can use 1/2 whole wheat if you choose)
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 T brewers yeast (be generous)
3 c thick cut oats
1 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together 2 T of flaxseed meal and the 4 T water in a small bowl. Let sit for 5 min. Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Add eggs, flaxseed mixture, vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together all dry ingredients except oats and chips. Pour the dry mix into the butter mix. Mix together. Now add the oats and the chocolate chips. Using a cookie scoop, drop onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 8-11 min. Take out right before they look completely cooked so they remain soft.
