I decided to create these Good Night Cookies because I was desperate for a sugar free but still sweet bedtime snack that my kids would love, devour and prevent from waking up hungry. Result: extraordinary, they did not wake up because they were hungry!!! Total success!!! Now I need to tackle the other 400 night waking causes. Ha!
This bedtime snack is high in healthy fats and very high in tryptophane which is an amino acid that supposedly promotes sleep. Regardless of it being true or not that tryptophane promotes sleep, these cookies turned out A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! They are a very healthy choice even throughout the day for those moments one craves something sweet. Don’t worry, you won’t fall asleep on the sofa mid day if you have one, or two or ten. Promise!
Nuts and seeds are extremely nutrient dense. They are a great source of protein and provide incredible amounts of minerals, vitamins and fiber. What else can you wish for before running a marathon…in your dreams.
These cookies are very very chewy and soft and delicious. Enjoy with a warm cup of milk, sleep tight and don’t let the bedbugs bite!
