Lactation Cookies


"Brewer's yeast, flax seed and oatmeal are combined with your typical ingredients to create a yummy cookie that may help increase milk supply for lactacing women. I incorporate other healthy ingredients to cut calories and boost nutritional value. Feel free to leave out peanut butter for those with nut allergies. I like dark chocolate chips and coconut in mine; customize add-ins to your liking."
