Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies- Lactation Cookie Recipe #2

So yesterday I shared my first lactation cookie recipe, made with M&Ms.  This recipe is pretty much the same but made with chocolate chips instead.  The difference is in the sweetness.  I feel like the M&Ms really made the cookie overwhelming and since due to the brewer's yeast this is a less sweet cookie in general, that's alarming.

Take note, tomorrow I'll post a healthier version of a lactation cookie, at least, compared to this recipe and yesterday's recipe.

I'll go ahead with results before I get into the recipe & photo this time, since it's very similar.  I could easily eat 10 of these cookies per day.  They are delicious.  However, any slight increase in breast milk did not require me to continue taking them to maintain, so I'm not really sure if they *really* were doing anything.  On the other hand, I haven't gotten into my whole arsenal of breast feeding tricks yet, so what you don't know is that I pretty much have oversupply and did it to myself on purpose so I can pump lots and wean earlier, plus not stress about milk supply.  You may see a noticeable increase if your supply is low.  I mean, there must be a reason the recipes are so enduring.

2 tablespoons flax seed meal (found at GNC.  Alternative- buy flax seed and stick it in your food processor)
1/4 cup water
1 cup butter1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/4 cup brewer's yeast (found at GNC.  NO OTHER TYPE OF YEAST!)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix water and flax seed meal into a small bowl and set aside for the moment.

Cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar.

Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix well.

Add flax seed meal mixture and mix well.

Add flour, brewer's yeast, baking soda, and salt.  Some like to mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl.  I like to do less dishes so I just throw it all into the mixer bowl with the wet ingredients.  Mix well.

Stir in oats and chocolate chips.

Form and set on baking sheets.  I don't really have a set size, in general the little dough balls are around the size of the hole when I put my pointer finger to my thumb and make a circle, like making the "OK" sign.  

I bake on silicone sheets for about 15 minutes in an electric oven.  From owning a gas oven previously I know to remind you that your oven may be different and keep an eye on your cookies the first time you make them.

Recipe makes about 50 cookies.
