Lactation Cookies

This is a delicious recipe for lactation cookies which can be easily modified to change up the flavours (as the one type of cookie tends to get boring after a while!!). This will be my last recipe before giving birth to twins #2 as I prepare for their arrival! The key ingredients for lactation cookies are brewers yeast, flaxseed and oats which helps with the production of breastmilk. The are packed with goodness so these cookies are also great to satisfy the constant breastfeeding tummy rumbles! You also don’t need to be breastfeeding to benefit from these cookies – the whole family can eat them!

Add butter, white sugar and brown sugar to bowl.

Melt 3 minutes/60 degrees/Speed 2.

Add brewers yeast, flaxseed meal, self raising flour, oats, chocolate chips, vanilla, egg and salt.

Mix 10 seconds/Speed 4.

Spoon teaspoon sized balls of dough onto a lined baking tray.

Bake for 9 – 11 minutes or until browned.

LSA

LSA is an acronym for milled Linseeds (Flaxseeds), Sunflower Seeds and Almonds. LSA is high in protein, fibre and Omega 3 essential fatty acids. LSA is a rich source of protein which helps with sugar cravings and helps balance sugar levels.

LSA is a fantastic way too add extra nutrients into your food! You can add it to your smoothies, cereal/muesli in the morning, yoghurt, baked goods, bliss balls, sprinkle some through your main meals, or even use it as a coating for your chicken nuggets/fish fingers instead of breadcrumbs!

I have used LSA in some of my recipes including my Ferrero Rocher Bliss Balls, Apple Pie Bliss Balls and Simple Banana Smoothie!
