I cannot be blamed for this: Lacataion Cookie Recipe

Posted on | July 6, 2011 | 11 Comments

After you eat and entire plate of these because they’re “good for you,” and may even help with your milk supply, please do not come hunting for me. These things are incredibly addictive and oh-so-yummy. The first batch I made with the intentions of freezing are already gone. So, I made a second batch last night and left a few out for the hubs and me (and Sully). The rest are safely in the freezer and will stay there until Baby Dos arrives. I found the recipe here. They are super easy to make, always smell yummy, and look pretty good too. Enjoy!

    Ah, yes….lactation cookies. Been there, done that and won’t make them again, because well, I’m done having kids, but because I ATE THEM ALL! So hard to have self-control when they’re “good for you!”

    Hahaha, I know, right? After this baby, I need to burn this recipe or else risk gaining back any baby weight I manage to lose.

    I hate oats. bleh! then again, I’m leaking like the proverbial dike with a hole in it anyway, so hopefully that means I won’t need any ‘extra’ help.

    Jill, if you wanted to make them sans oats, the flax and brewer’s yeast is still great for milk supply if you do need any extra help :) For this recipe, I actually used Steel Cut oats instead of rolled. Dunno if it would work as well, but it sure tasted good!
