Oatmeal Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

When you are breastfeeding, there are lots of challenges. From learning how to hold your baby, getting him to latch properly, working around any pain, being tired, having enough milk or too much milk, and the final biggie: feeling hungry ALL the TIME. Seriously. I can go from feeling satisfied to full on starving in a minute. You are supposed to eat extra calories, but it’s hard to fit in even the normal calories with a baby needing all of your attention. People talk about lactation cookies, which are essentially cookies with a bunch of ingredients that are supposed to help with milk production. They’re also supposed to make you happy because hey! You get to eat cookies! But they don’t sound very good to me, and they also contain ingredients that I don’t have the time to get. Brewer’s yeast? Flax seeds? Not normal ingredients for me to have around. But oats? Yes, those I have. Soooo, I decided to make my own “lactation” cookies.
