Someone mentioned the recipe I posted a few weeks back so I thought I'd make a thread so everyone could find it I haven't tried the recipe, but everyone that has tried it has loved them

Lactation cookies (my favorite!)
These also make a GREAT gift for new mothers
You can add more oats or yeast to up supply more!

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons flax seed meal
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
1 cup chocolate chips
2-4 tablespoons brewer's yeast

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Mix the flaxseed meal and water and let sit for 3-5 minutes.
3. Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar well.
4. Add eggs and mix well.
5. Add flaxseed mix and vanilla, beat well.
6. Sift together flour, brewers yeast, baking soda, and salt.
7. Add dry ingredients to butter mix.
8. Stir in oats and chips.
9. Scoop onto baking sheet.
10. Bake for 12 minutes.
11. Let set for a couple minutes then remove from tray.

Can you substitute nutritional yeast for brewer's yeast? I've got some of that in the cupboard so I could make these. They sound delicious!

i don't think you could substitute ...the brewer's yeast has a TON of nutritional value that the regular yeast doesn't.
