{lactation cookies+generally healthy for anyone cookies}

One of my favorite things about breastfeeding is that it gives me an excuse to eat these amazing oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! They are seriously SO good! This recipe makes a cookie similar to the brand Milk Makers. They have the cutest logo. It is an M, made to look like two boobs :) I have to say, I was skeptical that these wouldn't do anything, but I really am convinced they work!

1 cup butter                                    2 cups flour
1 cup packed brown sugar             1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar                                     4 tbsp brewers yeast
4 tbsp flax seed meal                      1 tsp salt
5 tbsp water                                    3 cups quick oats
2 eggs                                             as many mini chocolate chippies as you want :)
1 tsp vanilla

Here is the quick version:
oven @ 350
mix flax and water and let sit a few minutes
beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar together
add eggs and mix
add flax and vanilla and mix
combine flour, brewers yeast, baking soda and salt in a seperate bowl
gradually add to wet mixture
stir in oats and chocolate chippies
scoop onto cookie sheet in generous mounds, I like to use parchment paper underneath
bake for 12-15 mins
cool and enjoy a bounty of breastmilk :)
and if you arent a nursing Mom eat these anyway! Flax and brewers yeast are good for everyone!
