just happen to be called “lactation cookies”. yeah.

they’re good. reallllly good. like nate-won’t-stop-eating-them-even-though-i-tell-him-they’re-my-“medicine”-and-he’ll-start-lactating-and-need-to-wear-breast-pads kind of good.

he hasn’t started lactating. but my milk supply has grown! win win.

lactation cookies (adapted from the leaky boob)
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
4 tablespoons of water
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons brewer’s yeast
3 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips

soak the flaxseed in the water for a few minutes to soften. mix dry ingredients. cream together butter, sugar and molasses, add eggs, flaxseed and vanilla. add in dry ingredients.
bake 8 – 12 minutes on 375º.

if you come to visit and we offer you a cookie….it just might be this one. don’t worry, we won’t collect your milk supply. we’re not that weird…
