Lactation cookies

1 1/2 cups flour ( I use up to half whole wheat flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon 
1/2 tsp allspice
1 tsp vanilla 
2 eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup shortening
4 tsp brewers yeast
3 TBL ground flaxseed 
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 cup walnuts
1 bag chocolate chips or a mix of different chips butterscotch is great with the oatmeal. 

In mixer combine shortening and sugars mix well. Add eggs and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Finally add chocolate chips and walnuts. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. 

Also this recipe works well for "slice and bake". Make the dough into a tube and wrap in plastic wrap. Freeze and cut off what you want to bake for fresh cookies without the mess. They may need baked a bit longer if baking from the freezer. Also they make great gifts for new moms or breastfeeding moms during growth spurts.
