How to make insomnia cookies? 

To make insomnia cookies you will need:

  • Dry ingredients:
    • 200g whole gluten free rolled oats
    • 50g organic shredded coconut
    • 50g organic chopped walnut
    • 1 tsp organic cinnamon
  • Wet ingredients:
    • 300g (approx. 2-3) over-ripe organic bananas, mashed
    • 320ml of Restful Tea or Peaceful Tea
    • 1 tbsp of organic rice syrup
    • 2 tbsp organic coconut oil
    • 1 1/2 tsp pure organic vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C and prepare some tea of your choice. We recommend our Restful Tea or Peaceful Tea.
    Infuse 1 tablespoon of loose leaves in 1 litre of freshly boiled water for a minimum of 5 minutes. Separate herbs from water by straining the liquid through a fine mesh.
    You only need 320ml, but this way you will have some tea left over to enjoy with your cookies.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir thoroughly.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the banana with the remaining wet ingredients.
  4. Mix wet into dry. Then spoon or mould the dough in cookie-sized portions on a paper lined baking tray.
  5. Bake for approx. 25 minutes, or a little longer if you want your insomnia cookies more crispy.
