Oatmeal lactation cookies are so yummy it is ridiculous. I live on pinterest looking for inspo and ideas to keep my milk supply boosted as much as possible.
That’s why I created these…
Delicious oatmeal lactation cookies with cinnamon accents that mask the brewer’s yeast so well, you don’t even know it’s there.
Brewers Yeast is quite the ingredient, let me tell you! Its appearance is not appealing at all and smells and looks like unflavored protein powder. It is best to be used in drinks or baking to hide its flavor.
Now you are probably wondering, “What does it taste like?”. Well, it has a nutty taste to it, it pretty much tastes like slightly bitter unsalted nuts. The flavor is not that bad depending on how you use it.
I actually managed to create this decadent Lactation Brownie recipe that compliments brewers yeast pretty well.
These cookies are super low-calorie and make a GREAT breastfeeding snack or breakfast snack! Hide them once you make them before everyone finds them and devours them!
Well, that might be a little hard to do as the aroma of cinnamon floods your kitchen. But at least this batch makes a whopping 25-30 cookies so you’ll have plenty to share!
Quick Oats work well but tend to absorb more, so that’s why I favor rolled oats for more texture! But when in a pinch quick oats are the best substitute.
