My choc + fenugreek drinks just finished and if there’s no sale, there is no way I am buying more of it. I am too lazy to eat the fenugreek pills I just bought from iHerb, and I just found the fenugreek herbs in its whole form from Fabulous Mom that belonged to my sis at the kitchen downstairs but she did not use it.
So I was thinking of a way to make a use of it. And I googled (!) what can I do about it, and most mums suggested making cookies.
Apart from fenugreek used as milk booster, I found brewers yeast and flaxseed is good to be mixed into the cookie batch. Found them at a local online store (let’s shortform it to LGP), found the shipping price is a bit steep so I messaged the owner if there is an alternative way (free shipping above Rm100 ke apa ke) than going to the store myself. He read, ignored for few hours, then replied that he would follow up the next day. The next day came and went, and I think he must have been so busy with his organic store that a little customer service courtesy is forgotten (just like lowyat lucas, but that’s a different story altogether).
(If you are pregnant and still want these cookies, omit the fenugreek. From WebMD (!):
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Fenugreek is LIKELY UNSAFE in pregnancy when used in amounts greater than those in food. It might cause early contractions. Taking fenugreek just before delivery may cause the newborn to have an unusual body odor, which could be confused with “maple syrup disease.” It does not appear to cause long-term effects.
Which means, there’s nothing wrong in taking fenugreek post-natal, kalau during pregnant and you want to used it a little bit during masak2 is okay, but not in its form and in great amount. So omit that.
Sis told me those items can be bought at an organic store in MidValley for a cheaper price. Off we went, bought it with some other things at Just Life and hang out with friends at our usual place afterwards.
So organic flaxseed
500 250g is RM6.50, brewers yeast 500 250g is RM16.50, and whole oats 500g is RM7.90. You can use instant oat, actually, it doesn’t matter. It will come out like a proper normal cookies rather than the one I made using whole oats.
I milled the fenugreek to powder form with the dry blender (alah, kalau nak buat cili api kering, guna tu..), bought few other things and make the kitchen upstairs my temporary experiment lab.
I included honey so try hard not to share with your baby who has teeth and below than a year. Husband nak rasa? Boleh aja. He won’t get any milk. 😛
