Lactation Cookies

Oatmeal, flaxseed, and brewer's yeast are all helpful for milk supply. This is our standard vegan cookie recipe with the brewer's yeast addition. Hmmm, considering how often I make these vegan cookies I wonder why my milk supply is more abundant than normal for me at a year postpartum? 🙂

2 c oats
2 c flour (can do some whole wheat flour)
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1 t salt
2/3 c oil
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c liquid (almond milk, rice milk, water)
2 T ground flax
2 to 4 T brewer's yeast
1 t vanilla

Optional add ins, do any combination:

1 c coconut
1 c chocolate chunks (dice up IKEA dark chocolate bar for vegan version)
1 c chopped nuts
1 c raisins/craisins
1 c rice krispie cereal

Combine the ground flaxseed and milk/water and let sit a few minutes. Add and then cream wet ingredients in one bowl (oil, sugars, flax, yeast, vanilla.) Combine all the dry ingredients in another bowl, fold together, mix in extras. Bake 12 to 14 minutes (BIG scoops) at 350 degrees. I use a 1/4 cup measuring scoop to bake 6 per cookie sheet.
