A mom shared this recipe with me in our nursing room at work. I made these and they are fantastic! I wasn't sure if the increase in supply came from the brewer's yeast, the flax seed, the oatmeal or just the fact that I kept shoveling calories in my mouth. Anyway, from the website...
"This recipe makes a ton of cookies. Last time I made it I had a little over 6 dozen. I made them for my sister-in-law who is due any day with baby number 2. It was a great activity to get her 3 year old son involved in as well."
