Yield 40 cookies
My beautiful neighbor Monica just had her third baby! I can't wait to snuggle the little guy but I know from experience how special and especially tiring those first few weeks are. Nursing while also trying to pay attention to your other two kids can take it out of any mom. So I made her a batch of these cookies that have three key ingredients for nursing moms: Brewer's yeast, flaxseed, and oats. All are known galactagogues (meaning they help support your milk supply!). Plus, they are just a deliciously moist and nutty gluten and dairy-free treat!
If you aren't a nursing mom, keep the flax in but omit the brewer's yeast for a delish cookie.
Will keep for 10 days or more in refrigerator.
Note: Brewer's yeast can have a strange and bitter flavor (which the peanut butter helps mask!). Look for the least bitter kind you can find at the store.
To make vegan: Substitute flax eggs for the eggs!
