I had never even heard of lactation cookies until one of the moms at MOPS brought me a meal shortly after Carson was born. Shoutout to Tracy for getting me hooked on these.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons flax seed meal
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups slow rolled oats
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks
2 tablespoons brewer's yeast
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix the flaxseed meal with water in a small bowl and let sit for 5 minutes.
Using a mixer, mix together the butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and eggs. Mix until well-blended.
Add in flaxseed and mix until well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and brewer's yeast. Mix well and add to butter mixture.
Stir in oats and chocolate chunks. Mix until well combined.
Use a spoon to scoop out cookies and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-13 minutes or until slightly browned on the top.
I like to freeze cookie dough balls and make 3-4 at a time fresh (bake frozen for 15 minutes instead of 12-13).
