Brewers Yeast has quite a strong flavour which is why the recipe says 2-4 tablespoons. In this verison i use 4 tablespoons.

I like my cookies nice and chocolatey but you can halve the choc chips (or even add more!) and they are still yummy!

I find it easier to transfer the mix to another bowl before making the biscuits. Depending of how hungry i am while i make these i can get anywhere from 24 to 50 cookies! By using the teaspoon i get 50.

The flaxseed meal, chia seed meal and water mix acts as the binding agent in this recipe.

The milk increasing (galactagogues) ingredients in the recipe are the oats, linseed and brewers yeast.

Bake for 12 mins for soft in the middle cookies, or a little longer if you like them crunchy. I find 13 minutes to be perfect! tmrc_emoticons.)

    I subbed the dark chocolate for half white choc and half chopped macadamias.

    They are delicious, great recipe!  tmrc_emoticons.D
