These cookies are notorious for helping boost and maintain supply. You can add chopped nuts if you like. They are super yummy, but not very good for the waist line. Enjoy!

Monster cookies:

1/4 cup butter, room temp
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
3 cups rolled oats
6 ounces m&ms

preheat oven to 350

Beat sugar, brown sugar and butter until creamy.
Add eggs, vanilla and baking soda and mix well.
Add peanut butter and mix.
Stir in oats, m&ms.
Place teaspoon full of dough on lightly greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly brown on edges.

These are soooo good and really do help boost my supply.

I just wanted to add that when I use natural peanut butter instead of Jif or something like that, it helps to add 1/4 c. flour to keep the cookies from spreading too much in the oven.

I am going to the store today just to get the stuff to make them yet again.

I also noticed that if I add a little more butter they tend to be softer.

What makes these cookies work?
I am struggling with gestational diabetes and want to develop a sugar-free/low, high protein, high fiber thing that would work now and after I deliver. I was thinking with some alterations, these would be a beginning. Any nutritionists here? I have made a dough from an apple cinnamon muffin mix (cinnamon for diabetes and apples b/c I want fruit) adding bran of three types (flaxseed, wheat germ, and something else-wheat bran in the frig), some whole wheat flour, oats, more cinnamon, margarine, sugar-free peanut butter, protein powder, Fibersure, and dried blueberries, raisins, and cranberries. Sigh, out of chocolate chips here and could not find the cocoa. Added those egg beater things and used EVOO but thought about low-fat yogurt. Have also tried this with an oatmeal choc chip cookie package (berry yogurt) which I thought (based on glucose levels) were fair to good but those disappeared (have husband and dogs). Did not mention to husband contents or purpose of cookies.

oatmeal is what makes these cookies work. You can also add brewer's yeast and flax seed meal to help with supply too.

I've heard many times that oats and protein can help a lot with breastfeeding, so I found this recipe with my daughter that I fell in love with. I thought I'd share it for anyone interested. I will post the exact way I make it, but you could use white flour and no walnuts.

APPLESAUCE-RAISIN-OATMEAL MUFFINS

1 1/2 c. oatmeal
1 1/4 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 c. applesauce
1/2 c. skim milk
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 egg white

Combine oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and soda. Add applesauce, milk, brown sugar, oil and egg white. Add raisins and chopped walnuts to taste. Mix until dry ingredients are moist. Make topping and add on top (see below). Bake at 400 degrees for 17-18 minutes.

TOPPING (I tend to make a bit more, because this is my favorite part):

1/4 c. oatmeal
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. melted butter

Combine together and put on top of muffins.


***I pop these in the freezer until I want to use them. I generally grab two, put a little spray butter on top, and pop them in the microwave until warm. These are easy to eat while actually feeding your baby. I also double the recipe to make 24 servings.
