Lactation Recipes:

     Peanut Butter Bars
          Preheat oven to 350
          1/2 c melted butter
          1/2 c white sugar
          1/2 c brown sugar
          1/2 c creamy peanut butter
          1 egg
          1 Tbsp vanilla

          Mix those ingredients together until smooth and creamy.

          1c (minus 4 Tbsp) flour
          4 Tbsp brewer's yeast
           3/4 tsp baking soda
          1/2 c oats
          1/4 tsp salt

          Sift those ingredients and add to wet ingredients.

          Smooth into a buttered 9x13 baking sheet. sprinkle on 1 cup
          chocolate chips and press in lightly.   Cook for 18-22 minutes (I
          cooked mine for 18 and they were chewy and delicious!)

         Note: I'm sure you could replace butter with coconut oil but when I substitute I always use about 1/4 less oil than butter, so maybe 1/3 or 3/8 c oil instead of 1/2 c butter.

    Banana Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies
          1 C natural peanut butter
          1/2 coconut oil - melted
          3/4 C turbinado raw sugar
          2 Tbsp black strap molasses
          3/5* Tbsp brewer's yeast
          1 C flax meal
          1 small banana - smashed
          2 tsp vanilla
          1/2 C water
          1 1/2 C whole wheat flower
          1 tsp baking soda
          1 tsp salt
          1 tsp cinnamon
          1 C walnuts - chopped
          2C dark choc chips 
          1 3/4 C rolled oats

          Preheat oven to 350F.
          In a LARGE bowl, stir peanut butter, coconut oil, raw sugar, molasses, brewer's yeast, flax meal, banana, vanilla and water until well blended.  Cover mixture with whole wheat flower, sprinkle with baking sida, salt and cinnamon.  Mix well.  
          Mix in walnuts and chocolate chips.  Stir in oats a bit at a time.
          Make 60 firmly packed 2Tbsp balls of dough.  Press dough with fingertips/fork once on baking sheet.
          Bake 12ish minutes.
          Note: I believe I added another Tbsp of molasses (3Tbsp total), 1/2 C sunflower seeds, almond milk instead of water, all 5Tbsp of brewer's yeast, 1/2C shaved coconut, and half-whole wheat flour, half quinoa flour.
