Lactation Cookies

Has any one tried them? Did they actually work?
I'm returning to work and want to boost my supply.

I've never tried them but I have heard from moms at work that they do work. There are recipes all over the net. I've heard its really the brewers yeast and steel cut oats in them that help increase your supply.

tomorrow: You don't know how badly I want to eat them all.
Flickan: i was skeptical at first but gave in anyways.


Now I wonder how many cookies do I have to eat to see a real difference. I've been nibbling on them here and there. Don't like I've had more than 3 in the last 24 hrs.

So I used dry active yeast cuz I couldn't find brewers yeast and they turned out really flat. So, I made them into bars instead. The 'cookies' from the first batch I've been eating...need...to..stop. they are GOOD!

I posted it on Instagram. Whole Foods and GNC is about 15-20 miles away. :( Oh well...when I made it into bars in a casserole dish, it seems to have worked really well.
