Milk Cookies

Cookies cookies cookies YAY!!

So I’m always looking for yummy, healthy cookie options and was recently disapointed with TLC Kashi cookies that I bought the other day. I LOVE Kashi products, but the cookies were just blahhh in my opinion. {Sorry Kashi!} Along with wanting a yummy treat, I’m always seeking healthified versions of baked goods and this one was in deed a hit. I had first tried making a version of these cookies a couple of months ago as a way to help increase/boost my milk supply. {it’s all about the leche these days! 😉 } However, that other recipe that I tried was also disappointing :-/Then I came across this recipe and decided to give these cookies another go around and my oh my did they NOT disappoint at all, in fact they are FA BULOUSLY DELICIOUS!

Now you might say, “OMG! Milk making cookies? No thank you..” But seriously these are REALLY GOOD and no they aren’t going to make you lactate at random..haha {though that would be funny}, instead these are super healthy cookies filled with tons of fiber and healthy fats. So trust me…TRY THEM! 🙂 “Try them, try them, and you may! Try them and you may, I say.” 😉 ― Dr. Seuss, Green Eggs and Ham
