C is for Cookie and Cookie is for me! Omnomnomnom
My inner cookie monster loves these.
Big hearty breakfasts on the weekend are our favorite. During the week we all want heartiness without the morning effort, especially when rushing out the door. Just grab one of these and off you go! These are jam packed with good stuff and will keep you full until lunch. Promise.
Why you should make these:
- Everyone loves cookies.
- They taste great.
- They are very filling.
- There’s lots of healthy stuff in them.
- They are cookies!
I make a ton of these at once then vacuum seal, they freeze very well. I usually don’t even wait for them to thaw, it’s like an ice cream cookie. Super good! These were a life saver right after Little Lady was born. I was too tired to cook anything during the day but I still needed lots of energy. That’s where these came in to play. Because they have brewer’s yeast and other galactogogues in them. They were great for keeping up my supply of milk.
Make sure when you are making this recipe that you are using Brewer’s Yeast and not Nutritional Yeast. They are two different things. You can find the one I use here.
In a large bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt, and brewer’s yeast.
In a medium bowl mix flax and water until thoroughly combined. To that, add oil and honey. Stir well until completely mixed.
Then add eggs to wet mixture, stir between each egg.
Add vanilla, stir.
Now add the wet into the large bowl of dry and mix well.
Mix the chunky stuff in: almonds, chocolate chips, and raisins.
After everything is blended well, finally the applesauce gets added and mixed in.
Scoop onto silicone baking sheets, and press down each ball of dough lightly with a fork.
Bake 12-14 minutes or until done.
