I got overly confident this go-round of nursing. I tried to diet at 6 weeks post partum, and my supply promptly started drying up. I got rather concerned, started eating as much as I wanted again and went through 2-3 batches of these lactation cookies. They worked as claimed, and tasted basically like oatmeal cookies. I can eat an entire batch myself far too easily. I'll even eat the raw dough, but it's a little bitter. Modified from this Australian site.

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup brown sugar + more to taste
2 TB flaxseed meal
1 egg
2 TB water (I should try with 3TB)
1 TB vanilla
2 TB brewers yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1 & 1/2 cups oats
1/4 cp mini chocolate chips
1/4 cp shredded coconut (sweetened)

Preheat oven to 325.
In a small separate bowl, combine flaxseed meal with water and let sit a few minutes while you're doing the next step. It'll turn into a gel.
Cream the sugar with the coconut oil. Add egg, vanilla, and flaxseed, and mix well.
Add flour, baking powder, brewer's yeast, and salt. Mix well.
Stir in oats, chocolate chips, and coconut.

Take a tablespoon of dough at a time, roll into a ball and flatten slightly. Bake at 325 for 15 minutes or until desired doneness.

Optionally, mix with half whole wheat flour to pretend they're a little less unhealthy.
