Just six ingredients away from the perfect supper time snack. These delicious cookies are easy to make and full of nutrients that can help towards getting you a good nights sleep.
Chickpeas - the key ingredient
Chickpeas are packed full of protein and fibre which can help you to feel fuller for longer- a sensation that can improve your sleep. They also contain high amounts of vitamin B6 – a vitamin known to help your body to produce the “feel-good” hormone, serotonin, and the “sleep-inducing” hormone, melatonin.
