'Cuz what the h*ll else am I gonna do when it's cold...

Anne's reply in the cookie thread had me thinking that I experience better pumping results with cookies rather than straight up oatmeal too. I thought maybe it was because of the added calories from butter, sugar, and eggs...but then, ugh, that sure makes it hard to lose these last 10 pregnancy pounds! So the plan:

I just finished off a 'normal' batch of oatmeal cookies. I did see an increase in output.

Now I'm making a fat-free batch that uses applesauce, sugar and egg whites. Hmm...do I dare hope this would be better?

I'll then try a breastmilk-specific one that involves adding brewer's yeast (gotta love Google).

I'll see which of the three recipes does the best, and let you all know!

It's cookie season in my house!

I can't wait to find out the results. It's funny because I never liked oatmeal cookies until after I had Alex and now I love them, I just don't have the time to bake them.

Well, I've made the non-fat ones...and geesh, I hope they yield more because they taste like crap and wouldn't be worth it otherwise!

Oh no, that's not what I wanted to hear! I'll be heartbroken if we can't find a decent non-waist-expanding recipe since I plan to shovel these things down like air if it helps with my milk! Heartbroken, and broke from buying new pants...

I had forgotten about cookies! I'm going to make some tonight or tomorrow. I love to bake, so might as well have an excuse to eat the cookies.
Good luck with your yummy experiment!!!
