If you’re like us, you probably enjoy a little sweet treat before bed. What if your dessert could help you fall asleep and stay asleep? Double the sweet! Could it be true?
Get ready to get excited because yes, it is true. What you eat before bed can affect your quality of sleep. But have no fear, you can still enjoy dessert. Bananas, cherries, mango, grapes, oranges and dark chocolate are all sleep inducing foods. We’ve found some recipes that include not only some of these dream makers but a few other ingredients that won’t hinder you drifting off into dreamland.
Yield: about 20 cookies
½ cup coconut oil (in solid form)
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
½ tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
¾ cup whole wheat flour
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
1¼ tsp. sea salt, divided
1½ cups rolled oats
3.5 oz. dark chocolate (1 bar), chopped (you can also use dark chocolate chips if you prefer)
½ cup dried cherries
½ cup pecans, chopped (optional)
Sometimes the cookies star to get slightly misshapen while they cook. You can remove them from the oven after about 8 minutes and gently nudge them back into a round shape with the back of a spoon.
