"These cookies are great for breastfeeding mothers! They are moist and super yummy and they help boost and/or maintain milk supply. And yes, husbands can eat them too! I have to hide these from my hubby when I make them! The brewers' yeast, wheat germ, flax seed, and whole oats are why these cookies help with milk supply for lactating mothers. Don't skip those ingredients!"

These cookies are amazing as far as cookies are concerned! Then add the fact that they help me feed my baby! I couldn't ask for more.
I've made it exactly as the recipe says and I liked them a lot. The next time I used coconut oil instead of butter (1:1), accidentally confused the sugar measurements, and used craisins instead. The coconut oil seems to keep the cookies moist longer and the taste doesn't seem to be affected. It seems to be a recipe that is easy to play with, which I love! :)
These were okay. The first bite was good, but the aftertaste was kind of bitter. It may be because I know what brewer's yeast taste like on it's own (gross) but I think I'll have to jazz these up quite a bit in order to like them. My husband thought they were pretty good though (although he noticed the aftertaste too.)
Really good. I used high quality de-bittered brewer's yeast and followed the recipe as listed, but added a few more chocolate chips (the bag was just over 1 cup of chips). The cookies tasted like non-healthy cookies and it will be hard to limit myself to just 1 or 2 a day!
edit-This time I added 1 tsp Cinnamon and that really kicked up the flavor. Yum.
I usually follow a recipe per the recipe whenever it's my first time making it, this recipe being no exception, and really enjoyed the cookies.
The second time I made some modifications that made it a bit healthier, but not necessarily less calories.
Doubled the wheat germ
Used half coconut oil, half butter
Added 1 tsp cinnamon
Added 1/2 cup coconut flakes (no sugar)
Exchanged 3/4 cup sugar for apple sauce
The final product: a much softer (10min bake time), less sugar, but still sweet cookie. Also to note, I used beet brewer's yeast, which did not make the cookies bitter. We love this recipe more now! I can also see adding or exchanging the chocolate for walnuts... Yum!
Made these and they are seriously very very good. I made them for lactation assistance and thought to hide them but my husband found them and ate most of them. They are now my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe in general (and I have quite a few around). Left out the wheat germ and brewers yeast because I didn't have time to go find some and the grocer didn't have any. Did not have to modify the recipe to accommodate for this.
I followed it almost exactly as listed above. The only difference is that I added cinnamon. They came out delicious!! My husband eats as many of them as me! I should also add that I have seen a boost in my milk supply eating 3-4 a day.
Great for milk production. My husband loves them too! Made them once before as is--added coconut flakes to sweeten it up a bit more. Trying with raisins and craisins today... :)
These are surprisingly good! Hubby liked them too. Great to boost milk supply! :)
