Milker Cookies

“the days go slow and the years go fast.”

Is definitely true these days. I never thought I would have 3 under 5 years of age! The littlest one is now 6 weeks old, she is a snuggly little puppy bringing us tremendous joy. Hand in hand with sleepless nights, cuddles and spit up is the joy of nursing. I say joy of nursing very sarcastically, since I am not a natural milk maker. Expecting that challenge, I decided to sweeten things up a little with these delicious cookies. I made some for myself last night and they were gobbled up by my family so fast that I didn’t even have a chance to let them know they were milker cookies. Try them out, they are very good!

I bought Brewers yeast from Whole Foods Market and it said non bitter taste which I think helped the tastiness!


1 stick butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup All Purpose Flour

1 cup old fashioned oats

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 cup brewers yeast

1/4 cup flaxseed meal

1/4 cup wheat germ

1/4 cup non sweetened coconut flakes

1/8 cup of chopped almond

3/4-1 cup dark chocolate chips


Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together the sugars and softened butter till light and creamy. Add egg and vanilla and mix together . Add the all purpose flour, brewers yeast, oats, wheat germ, flaxseed and coconut flakes along with baking powder, combining them together. Add the almonds, and chocolate chips and then mix together one more time. Form into small balls and then flatten into a cookie shape and bake at 350 for 12 minutes till the edges are golden brown.
