Cookies with a Difference

Leave a Comment

So in a bid to make sure i was full-y equipped to feed my baby, i started to research different ways Mums can help with the milk production.  I'd always been really, really keen to breast feed and give myself and my baby the best chance at it as possible.  I'd come across loads of different ways to help ensure you have a good supply, so i decided to try some of them out.  First up, is a yummy baked good, 'cos lets face it, everyone loves a cookie right?   Even my husband liked these, and polished off quite a few himself.  The recipe might look a bit confusing, but really it's not.  Just follow nice and slowly and take your time, you'll be sure to produce some yummy magic milk making biscuits. 

You will need
255g of rolled oats
130g all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons brewers yeast 
3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
180g unsalted butter
4 tablespoons organic coconut oil
130g soft brown sugar
1 large egg + 1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
130g 85% Dark Cocoa (I used Lindt)

Method: 
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together your oats, flour, yeast, flaxseed, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and salt until well blended. 

With an electric mixer in a separate bowl, beat the butter and coconut oil on medium speed until creamy. Add in the sugar and beat until nice and fluffy.  Add in the egg and egg yolk, beating until combined.  Add in the vanilla extract and beat until combined again. Gradually add in the dry ingredients, beating on low speed until just mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips with a spatula until they are evenly dispersed.
Scoop the dough into 1-inch rounds, using a tablespoon or a soup spoon, and place on a baking sheet about 2 inches apart as they will spread with the heat. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the bottoms are just golden. Let cool completely before munching to your hearts content.  Store in a air tight container and keep for around 1 week. 
Enjoy Mamas!
