BOOBIE BISCUITS 🍪🍪
These are Cranberry and Oat bikkies with added Brewer’s Yeast; ideal for breastfeeding Mammas*
You might be judged for knocking back a pint of Guinness with a baby on your boob, so these are a more nutritious and socially acceptable alternative 🥛
Freeze them for easy snacking or share them for a gift that keeps on giving. Literally.
And it goes without saying; if you eat one, you won’t lactate if you’re not supposed to be! 🙄
Makes about 22
170gm butter, softened
50gm coconut oil
1.5 cups raw sugar or coconut sugar
3 cups rolled oats (not fine/quick oats)
1.5 cups unbleached flour
5 tablespoons brewers yeast
3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup dried cranberries, chopped
3/4 sunflower seeds
Turn the oven on to 170 degrees fan bake.
Use an electric beater to whip butter with coconut oil. Add sugar and mix well until creamy.
Add vanilla and eggs, blend well for 1 minute more.
Sieve over the flour, cinnamon, yeast, baking soda and powder. Add ground linseed and oats. Mix again until roughly combined.
Add cranberries and use a strong wooden spoon to combine well.
Let the mixture sit while you grease or line your baking trays.
Pop sunflower seeds into a small bowl.
Roll dough into golf ball sized balls, roll in the seeds, place onto your trays then flatten a little with your hand (to around 1cm thick).
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until toasty golden.
Cool slightly then pop them on a cooling rack to cool completely.
Put the kettle on and make yourself a brew.
Put your feet up and enjoy your spoils. You deserve it Mamma 😘
* Despite a lack of scientific based evidence, brewers yeast is said to increase breastmilk production. I know I’ve always felt a boost after 1 big bikkie. Use a quality source, from your health food store or Binn Inn. Not to be confused with nutritional yeast or bakers yeast 👍🏻
