Can someone share the recipe for lactation cookies please? TIA!
I made these on Sunday.. I also added a little cinnamon. I am taking a long trip this week and wanted a little something to help me out..
They are pretty tasty too. I eat 4 cookies a day. good luck..
B's pedi sent this to me:
cookies are healthy and yummy, and help boost milk supply in breastfeeding
27 Minutes to Prepare and Cook
1 Cup margarine
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup brown sugar
4 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp flaxseed meal*
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour (wheat used in calculating nutrition info)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 Cups oats (thick cut if you can find them)
2 generous Tbsp brewer's yeast**
1 Cup chocolate chips, craisins, shredded
coconut, raisins, etc. (NOT included in nutrition info)
*Can be found at any health food store. Do not omit!
**It MUST be brewer's yeast! Do
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 chocolate chips (if using). 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.
6 dozen cookies
I make them using the above recipe with a few mods..I use:
steel cut oats (they're not bad put in whole, just crunchy like a granola bar, but if you grind them in the food processor you don't notice them at all)
4 heaping tbsp brewers yeast
4 heaping tbsp flax meal
half whole wheat and half white flour
dark chocolate chips in place of regular
and I add
1 cup slivered almonds (they help supply too)
