Holy cow!  18 and 15 months!  Lucky ladies! 

 

hoping, I've had cramps off and on for months.  I even spotted once with the cramps.  Every time I get symptoms, though, I make up a batch of lactation cookies.  : D 

I got this recipe from a great blog but I can't find the link.  I wish I could give her credit.

 

NURSING COOKIES recipe

1 1/2 cups margarine (or shortening if you are dairy free)

1 1/3 cups brown sugar (or 1 3/4 tsp stevia instead of the brown and white sugar, for sugar free)

2/3 cups white sugar (see above for sugar free)

2 eggs (or 3 tsp egg replacer mixed with 4 TB water for egg free)

2 tsp vanilla

3 cups all-purpose spelt (or wheat) flour (or 3 cups rice flour or gluten free flour mix for gluten free)

2 tsp baking powder (or 1/2 tsp baking soda mixed with 1 tsp lemon juice)

1/2 tsp baking soda

2 cups oats or kamut flakes (or quinoa flakes)

1 cup nuts/coconut (or flax meal, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds)

1 cup of dried fruit - cherries, raisins, apricots, peaches, pineapple, papaya, mango, etc.

1 cup of chocolate chips (optional)

Melt margarine in large mixing bowl.
Stir in sugars, add eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
Add flour, then baking powder and soda.
Blend until all flour is moistened.
Add oats, nuts, fruit and chocolate chips and stir.
Drop spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 F for approximately for 15 minutes.
Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes and cooling rack for 20 minutes more.
Makes 2 dozen large or 3 dozen smaller cookies.

****Special note****
Spelt flour is an ancient grain that is similar to wheat and has gluten in it. However, many people can tolerate spelt flour who are sensitive to wheat.

Making these cookies gluten free (with rice flour or a gluten free flour mix) works well, but makes the cookies a little bit more crumbly. Make sure to cool them completely and then move them very gently.
