  • Summary

    These hearty monster cookies have it all for nursing mamas: lactogenic oats, ground flaxseed, and brewer’s yeast powder; subtly crunchy, omega-rich chia seeds; and a bit of coconut oil, with its high lauric acid content to boost milk quality. A bevy of chocolate chunks and other goodies are added to the mix to keep anyone—nursing or not—reaching for more.
