  • 1 Cup 2 sticks of Butter softened
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 3/4 Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbsp Flax Seed Meal
  • 2-4 Tbsp Debittered Brewer's Yeast* see my note below
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3 Cups Rolled Oats
  • Bag of Chocolate Chips
  • 6-8 Tbsp Water*


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl mix your softened butter, eggs, sugars, and vanilla extract together.
  • After it is well-blended add in your flaxseed meal and brewer’s yeast.
  • Then fold in your oats. Combine flour, salt and baking soda to your mix.
  • You will need some water to soften up this mix so start with 4 Tbsp and work your way up one tbsp at a time until it is a good consistency.
  • Lastly, add your chocolate chips. Spoon Tbsp sized balls onto your cookie sheet and bake for 9-12 minutes.


*Depending on how low your milk supply is will depend on how much Brewer’s Yeast you should put in. If you use 4 Tbsp it will be more bitter. Make sure your Brewer’s Yeast is “Reduced Bitterness” or try using a little more sugar to balance this. The water will also depend on this as well. This dough is very dry so adding water helps.
