These cookies have brewers yeast, flax, and oats- this is why they’re called “Lactation Cookies”. The great thing is that these ingredients are very good for everyone! I am in LOVE with them- I’ve adapted the recipe by Noel Trujillo. My changes are below. I really think the coconut oil, peanut butter, and pecans made a HUGE difference. These are not, I repeat, NOT diet cookies. But worth every calorie. I promise. =)

Can’t wait to try out your cookies! I just met your mom 30 minutes ago, and she told me about your blog and your baby (very cute! Congrats!) Now I can’t wait to make some cookies to go with my tea I just bought.
Great! Glad to hear that someone else is about to get addicted! I swear I eat like 6 a day- but they’re my only splurge most days and I feel pretty good about that.=)
