Here's one without any strange ingredients. I haven't made them but I will if you say they're good.

I did make her chocolate peanut butter cups tonight and they were delish. Yum. Oh yeah.

Bless you my child. I will let you know how they turn out. YIPPEE!! :

Okay. I made them. Nothing to write home about, but there's hope for these cookies.

I changed the recipe a little- instead of whole wheat flour, I used all purpose (cuz that's all I had); instead of banana, I used 5 TBLS oil. I baked them for 9 minutes, and I think they should have gone a little longer, but that might be b/c I didn't flatten the dough out enough before baking. Next time, I will have to flatten the dough a lot! The cookies have decent flavor, but they need something (more cinnamon or salt? I dunno). Anyway, that's my review!

Thanks for the recipe! I have quelled my craving for now. And while I'm thinking about it, why not pass along that Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup recipe?!

I'm looking out for my famous Lactation Cake recipe and will post when have found it, meanwhile how about this one? Of course, the best way to increase your milk supply is to go to bed with baby for the whole day and demand feed, and tis the weekend coming up, any chance of doing that?

Apricot Muesli Cake

Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a 22cm square cake pan (I use a 23cm spring form pan). Line with baking paper and grease.

200g (2 cups) natural fruit muesli
120g (¾ cup) self-raising flour
30g (1½ cups) plump large dried apricots, chopped
75g (1/3 cup) brown sugar
125g vegan marg, chopped
60ml (¼ cup) golden syrup
Egg replacer equal to 3 eggs
20g (¼ cup) flaked almonds
10g (¼ cup) flaked coconut


In a bowl combine muesli, flour, coconut, apricot and sugar. Stir until well mixed. Melt vegan margerine and golden syrup together. Cool and add to bowl along with egg replacer. Using a wooden spoon, mix well together. Spoon into prepared tin.

Sprinkle sides with almonds and coconut and bake approx 40 minutes or until golden. Cool in pan for 10 minutes.
(Put a tray on rung above cake to prevent top burning and check at around 30 mins)

Sorry to hear that they weren't so great! The chocolate peanut butter cups will make up for it, I'm hope. They're here but the recipe is supposed to make a dozen of each kind (peanut butter and peppermint). I skipped the peppermint and decreased the amount of chocolate chips but then I ran out of chocolate and used more anyway. Mine came out kind of ugly but delicious!

You can try this one, subbing flax slurry for the eggs, they turn out great:

3 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups shortening (non hydrogenated Spectrum Organic or Earth Balance shortening sticks are obviously your best choice here)
2 eggs (2 TBS ground flaxseed and 6 TBS hot water)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups flour (whole wheat is best)
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 cups rolled oats

---------------------------------
In a large mixer bowl, combine sugar, shortening, water, eggs, vanilla, and salt on medium speed until well blended and slightly fluffy. Add flour, continuing to mix on low speed until just blended. Add baking soda, and continue to mix only long enough to stir it in on low speed. Add oats 1 cup at a time, mixing on lowest speed, then remove from mixer, and stir in raisins by
hand. Possible alternatives include stirring in 2 cups of raisins and 2
teaspoons of cinnamon, 2 cups of chocolate or butterscotch chips, or mix
raisins and chocolate chips for something really unusual. You can also
add a cup of chopped nuts or shredded coconut. (the latter is especially
useful if you wish to keep Catnip out of them : P) Drop by rounded
teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet, about 2 or 3 inches apart.
Bake one sheet at a time at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes. When the
cookies are done, they will look undercooked in the middle, but
starting to brown along the outside. Let them cool for about five
minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove them with a very thin spatula and
lay on a flat surface for at least another hour before trying to store
them. These cookies are fragile.

Lactation Cake

6 oz/175g Muesli
4oz / 120g Raw muscovado sugar
6 oz 175g Sultanas
2 tablespoons Malt Extract (or malt syrup, or rice syrup etc)
8 fl oz (285ml) Apple Juice
2 Cooking Apples (or 3 eaters), peeled, cored, grated
6 oz (175g) Whole Wheat Flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
8 walnut halves (could substitute maybe with half dried apricots?)

Preheat oven to 180 C

Mix muesli... Read more, sugar, sultanas, malt, apple juice = and soak 30 minutes
in mixing bowl.

Add grated apple, flour and baking powder, and mix thoroughly. Turn
into 7" lined and greased cake tin (or non stick). Put
walnuts/apricots on. Put into pre-heated oven for 1 3/4 - 2 hours, if
necessary cover the top with greaseproof if seems to be burning
earlier.

Leave in tin to cool. I'll measure out into US cups when I get a chance, and edit..

I was given this when my DD was newborn, and I made it everytime I needed to build milk up, including the time I had to relactate after a month weaned. But I always went to bed for a day, because really, it's the rest as well as the good nutrition that does it. Just went to bed and ordered DH to look after the rest of the house/kids, and it was a useful lesson to him in *how much* I did in a day, when he thought I did next to nothing!!!

Give to breastfeeding friend as birth present....will build her up! ;-)

ENJOY :-)

Ooh, those look delicious! I just asked my dh if he would pah-leez make me some, but he retorted, "We don't have the little papers." I replied that we have cupcake papers! YUM! He's not going for it, though. Those will get made before the holidays, for sure. :

And thank you for the recipes Carrotsoup76 and catnip. Very sweet of you to post those. I will try them soon

Ooh I just found this recipe for an oatmeal cookie bake. It reminds me of baked oatmeal that I made before dropping milk and eggs. I need to finally buy some egg replacer just so I can try this.
