Lactation Cookies

Since I was talking about my lack of milk production, I thought I would tell you about the lactation cookies I eat to help with my milk production.  Oatmeal, flax seed and brewers yeast all help with milk produciton and these cookies contain all three.  I copied this recipe from recipezaar.com.  I make them with the 4 tablespoons of brewers yeast.  Bubba, who hates oatmeal cookies, will eat these.  Oh, and since I LOVE chocolate, I make sure my one cup of chocolate chips is very generous! :)

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies

This recipe is great for mothers who are breastfeeding. It helps to keep your milk supply up or increase your milk supply. Use more brewers yeast and oatmeal if you are wanting to increase your milk supply. You can use more chocolate chips if you like or any kind of chips.
