In my baby prep plans, I've been trying to make two things for the freezer each week. This week, one of those was a batch of lactation cookies. Here's the recipe I used...http://www.food.com/recipe/oatmeal-chocolate-chip-lactation-cookies-by-noel-trujillo-192346
I made a few tweaks. I only used 1/2 pound (1 stick) of butter, then added 1/2 cup of applesauce. I used Splenda instead of the white sugar. I used almond flour instead of all purpose. I added a little extra yeast and flax meal at the recommendation of some other moms. I added pecan pieces to the whole batch, then dark chocolate chips to half and butterscotch chips to the other half. They all came out seriously delicious! I'm just finishing putting them into freezer bags and then they're ready to go!
For those who have never tried them, I got pre-made lactation cookies (from Amazon) and ate them when I was bf'ing DS. I tried not to make a habit of eating them daily, but I did notice a difference in my supply when I ate them. I'm not the most efficient pumper (which is common), so I often utilized things like this (there's plenty of other options...eating oatmeal also made a huge difference for me) after I went back to work and was pumping milk to leave for DS. This time, I thought I'd save a little money and make my own. I'm not a baker by any means and this recipe was so easy! I'd make a second batch, but I'm out of oatmeal! Just thought I'd pass along the idea for anyone trying to make freezer stuff!
