Lactation Cookies

Okay?!!! Don’t be taken aback by the title. Yes these are cookies with special ingredients to boost breast milk production, however, my DH has eaten quite a number of these in the recent week and he hasn’t grown man boobs yet. It’d be nice for him to take over a few of the overnight feeds I tell you. The original recipe I found online came out a bit stodgy, so I decided I’d try a batch using my rock cakes recipe, they taste 100% better.

75g butter
1/2 cup castor sugar (I used brown sugar this time)
1/2 cup Plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
2 cups rolled oats
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp flaxseed meals
3 tbsp brewer’s yeasts
1 egg
1 tbsp treacle
1 cup dark chocolate chips
¾ cup chopped macadamia nuts

1.          Preheat oven to 180C.
2.          Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Add to it the sugar.
3.          Chopped chilled butter into small cubes and add to the dry mixture.
4.          Used your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.
5.          Add the flaxseed meal, sesame seeds, oats and brewer’s yeasts.
6.          Add lightly beaten egg and the treacle to the dry mixture and stir with a wooden spoon.
7.          Add the chocolate chips and nuts and mix till even.
8.          Spoon a heap tablespoonful of mixture onto a flat baking tray, pressing the top to flatten it a little, allowing room for the cookie mixture to spread.
9.          Bake in 180C oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. The cookies will harden once they’re cooled.
