Lactation cookies are a complete misnomer. Don't get me wrong, I believe they do what they're supposed to, but it isn't like they make husbands produce milk. If they did, we'd have a leaky Chris over here. So let's call them what they really are, "OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES". This is not my recipe, but it is absolutely everywhere on the internet, and I got it from a friend, so I have no idea who to give credit to. So...here ya go.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons flax seed meal
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
1 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Mix the flaxseed meal and water and let sit for 5 minutes.
- Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar.
- Add eggs.
- Add the flaxseed and vanilla, beat.
- Mix together flour, brewers yeast, baking soda, and salt.
- Add dry ingredients.
- Stir in oats and chips.
- Bake for 12 minutes.
These are FIBER HEAVY COOKIES. All 3 of us in the house were feeling the effects. Take that as you may. Other than that they were delicious, but I'm really not sure how much they did for production. I did say to Chris a few times that I'm not really sure there's a difference between these and eating a granola bar and drinking a beer, but hey, it's an excuse for cookies. Enjoy!
