Lactation Cookies recipe


    • 1 cup butter
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    • 4 tablespoons water
    • 2 tablespoons flax seed meal
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 3 cups oats
    • 1 cup chocolate chips
    • 2 -4 tablespoons brewer's yeast


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Mix the flaxseed meal and water and let sit for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar well.
  4. Add eggs and mix well.
  5. Add flaxseed mix and vanilla, beat well.
  6. Sift together flour, brewers yeast, baking soda, and salt.
  7. Add dry ingredients to butter mix.
  8. Stir in oats and chips.
  9. Scoop onto baking sheet 
  10. Bake for 12 minutes. 
  11. Let set for a couple minutes then remove from tray
The jury is still out on whether these things will actually increase my supply, but they taste pretty good and with the extra ingredients - particularly the flaxseed meal - they have extra nutritional benefits.  They taste delicious, so either way they're a win. 

I found these when I went looking for ways to boost supply after a killer 6 1/2 month growth spurt.  And I'm sure it was a growth spurt because 2 weeks ago I bought new size 9 months sleepers for Nola, and now they're too small.  Go baby go!  (except not too fast because Mommy can't buy you new clothes every 2 weeks!)
