Paleo-ish Banana Walnut Lactation Cookies

I am on a mission to find as many ways to disguise brewers yeast in recipes as I can! With the brewers yeast, flaxseed meal, and oatmeal, these cookies will most likely give you the supply boost you are looking for! This recipe is “paleo-ish” because oatmeal doesn’t fit I to the paleo diet, but as a breastfeeding mommy, I am not willing to give it up. The rest of the ingredients are guilt-free, so go ahead and eat up these cookies! It’s for the baby, right?!

Makes 2 dozen cookies

2 bananas – mashed
1/4 c. Coconut oil
2 Tbsp. honey
2 eggs
3 Tbsp. brewers yeast
1 1/2 Tbsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup flaxseed meal
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. With an electric mixer on high (Beware of flying ingredients! Start at a low speed and slowly work your way up!), mix together bananas and coconut oil until incorporated. Then lower speed to medium and add honey and eggs.
3. In a separate bowl, stir together brewers yeast, baking soda, salt, flaxseed meal, and coconut sugar. Turn mixed down to low and slowly add dry ingredients. Once incorporated, slowly add oatmeal.
4. Fold in walnuts by hand.
5. Form 1-inch balls and place on a nonstick cookie sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until they begin to brown.
