Don't these look great???? Well let me tell you, don't let the name fool you....they are wonderful. A giant monster cookie with dark chocolate and almonds. I am in love. These cookies are good for anybody...at anytime. Delish!!
My daughter, Jenny, being a new mama and nursing the baby, requested "cookies" that would help to produce more breast milk. I had never heard of lactation cookies but after a google search I found it was a popular recipe. Being somewhat skeptical I headed out to buy ingredients. I found Brewer's yeast at Whole Foods. I have enough of it to make cookies for a year. The other ingredients were common and easily found in any grocery store.
Flax seed is easy to find in bulk or 1 pound bags. I milled my "flax seed flour" in a small coffee grinder that I had. It worked just fine.

This recipe makes a boatload ( 4-5 dozen) of cookies. They freeze well...so when you need a cookie you can sneak one from the freezer and nobody will know what you are up to!!
7. Pour yourself a glass of milk and nosh.
This little guy can't eat the cookies but is going to benefit from them nonetheless.
It doesn't matter if you need the cookies for the purpose they were developed for or if you are just being healthy these cookies are great!!!
Big sister is feeling left out of all this baby stuff. She is reclaiming her baby swing before little brother can use it!!
