Today we made "Mommy cookies". They are delicious chocolate chip cookies that have 3 ingredients (oats, brewer's yeast and flaxseed meal) that help with milk production. Make sure to get the brewer's yeast that has been debittered.
My kids named them "Mommy cookies". At my house everybody loves them and they disappear in less than 24hrs. They also moderately increase milk supply if you drink several glasses of water with them. Hope you like them!
