"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!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix flaxseed with water in small bowl and let soak for 5 minutes.
  3. Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Add egg yolks and vanilla extract; beat to incorporate. Stir flax seed mixture into the butter mixture.
  4. Mix flour, brewer's yeast, wheat germ, baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar in a separate bowl; add to butter mixture and stir until just combined. Fold oats and chocolate chips into the dough.
  5. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto a baking sheet.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

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 u...

Made these for my wife today, she said they were surprisingly yummy! I did substitute the cream of tartar for baking powder and they turned out just fine. We will see if they help her supply.

I made a batch but mine were really wet, is there anything I can do to make them less wet so they dont become too thin and burn?
