Oatmeal Cookies

I usually don’t like oatmeal cookies. Or peanut butter cookies. These are delicious however. These cookies contain a lot of ingredients to help a woman produce more breastmilk when she’s breastfeeding. Don’t worry though, if you aren’t breastfeeding, it’s not going to cause you to start lactating.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 3/4 c. oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 c. almond butter or peanut butter
  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1 c. flax
  • 3 T brewer’s yeast
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 c. (12oz) chocolate chips (I prefer dark chocolate chips)
  • 1 c. chopped nuts of your choice (almonds are the best!)

 Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.
  3. In a different large bowl, beat almond butter, butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, brewer’s yeast, flax and water until creamy.
  4. Mix in eggs.
  5. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
  6. Mix in nuts and chocolate chips.
  7. Add oats slowly, mixing along the way.
  8. Place balls of dough onto greased baking sheets or baking stones, pressing down gently with hands or a fork.
  9. Bake 12 minutes.
  10. Serve warm!
