Dreamy Chai & Vanilla Cream Cookies

High amounts of sugar before bedtime can impact your sleep, but don’t worry, we’ve got a recipe that’s sweet, low in sugar and will do your body a world of good.

These vegan low-sugar cookies come from our friends at Health Food Project and are packed with good nutrients:

  • Almonds are amazing morsels containing both iron and zinc, both of which are essential for eliminating brain fatigue and balancing mood.
  • Cinnamon is great because it can aid in naturally balancing blood sugar levels. When blood sugar levels are balanced, your hormones can function in a way that allows for better sleep!
  • Nutmeg has a calming effect when consumed in smaller doses. According to Ayurveda, a pinch of nutmeg can have de-stressing effects and can be used with a pinch of cardamom for added benefits.
