Mama's Best Lactation Cookies

A delicious and healthy lactation cookie proven to help promote your milk supply. I waited 9 months to eat cookie dough and couldn't wait to curb the craving once baby boy Jacob was born. After Jacob had several medical issues and difficulties with feeding, I was forced to continue pumping, which did not help promote an adequate milk supply.  If you know me, you realize how much of a cookie fanatic I am, and not just a fanatic, a picky-fanatic-cookie-eater! So when it came to finding the perfect lactation cookie, I had to combine several recipes to create the best!
