LACTATION BOOSTING CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

 

These cookies make a wonderful gift to a new mama. Help increase milk supply while eating a delicious cookie!

Nutritional yeast contains complete protein with all 9 amino acids and loads of B-vitamins. Flax seeds provide Omega 3 essential fatty acids, Lignans, which have both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities, and fiber (soluble and insoluble).

For an even healthier cookie,  consider substituting half of the sugar for stevia drops (10 drops should replace half of the sugar in this recipe.) Half of the flour can be replaced with whole wheat pastry flour. For a vegan cookie, the butter can be replaced with coconut oil and egg replacer can be substituted for the eggs.

Ingredients :

2 tablespoons flaxseed meal

4 tablespoons water
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar 2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
1 cup or more chocolate chips
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (be generous)

Directions:

Preheat oven at 375 degrees F. Mix together 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal and water, set aside for 3‐5 minutes. Cream (beat well) butter 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 chips. 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. Serves: 6 dozen cookies
