Vegan Gluten-free Lactation Cookies Haiku: "Very 'wet' cookie, but I think they tasted great. Kept well in the fridge." Made recipe as written only I subbed 1/4 c. coconut oil & 1/4 c. applesauce for the peanut butter. The cookies completely fall apart after being baked, but I liked the taste alot, and I kept them in the fridge for a little over a week eating one in the morning, and one in the afternoon. Now whether or not they've increased my milk supply, I'm not sure, only b/c I'm also drinking Mother's Milk tea, and I made up a lactation zucchini muffin recipe too, but hey, if my baby's mursing well and I get to eat yummy things in b/t, then all is good w/ me!
