Hey, anyone have positive/negative results with the cookies? Any recipe would be welcome!
My first go-around trying to increase breast-milk supply, as I'm anticipating another LARGE baby. :)
I don't know if these helped with supply, per se, but they're good and my supply is fine. I started eating them two days before LO was born.
I use the first recipe on the page but with fewer chocolate chips and more nuts.
I made this recipe yesterday. It's too soon to tell if they will help. I left out the brewers yeast because I ordered it from Amazon and it hasn't come yet. I'm not a fan of oatmeal cookies, but I made these with butterscotch chips and they are very good.
1 c butter
1cup sugar & 1 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp water
2 tbsp flax seed meal
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp brewers yeast (dietary supplement, not a baking yeast)
3 cups whole/old fashioned oats (not quick oats)
1cup chocolate chips (or raisins, nuts, craisins, etc.)
mix flaxseed with water and set aside 5 minutes. Cream butter and sugar and add eggs, vanilla, flaxseed mix. Add dry ingredients. Bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes.

They look really good! Did you follow the recipe or add anything like flax or brewers yeast?
