I had to change the name as people get funny and won't eat them when you tell them the real name. These are Lactation biscuits, wonderful things for helping increase milk supply in breastfeeding Mums. If you aren't a breastfeeding Mum, you won't suddenly grow massive boobs with the ability to feed the starving masses, not even a little bit. Perfectly safe for everyone , even men!
The magic ingredient is brewers yeast, a by product of beer making, an excellent source of B vitamins and protein. It must be BREWERS yeast, not BAKERS yeast. The other one is linseed or flaxseed meal, they are the same thing, and is high in Omega 3. Both these things are available in most supermarkets or healthfood shops. Keep in the fridge or freezer. 

225g  butter 
 1 cup sugar
 1 cup brown sugar
 4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons linseed (flaxseed) meal
 2 large eggs
 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
 2 cups flour
 1 teaspoon baking soda
 1 teaspoon salt
 3 cups rolled oats
 1 cup or more chocolate chips
 2 tablespoons of brewers yeast(be generous)
You can also add some dried fruit if you want, raisins, sultanas, cranberries, chopped apricots etc.

Preheat oven at 375 degrees F, 180c. 
Mix together 2 tablespoons of linseed meal and water, set aside for 3-5 minutes. Cream butter and sugar.
 Add eggs one at a time, mix well.
 Stir linseed mixture and add with vanilla to the butter mix. Beat until blended. Sift together dry ingredients, except oats and chips. 
Add to butter mixture.
 Stir in oats & chips and fruit.
 Scoop onto baking sheet lined with baking paper.
Bake 8-12 minutes, depending on size of cookies.
Serves: 6 dozen cookies (a huge batch)
