Midnight cravings

by Christina on September 19, 2011

Why do our bodies crave such bad food when we’re exhausted? My midnight cookie cravings have been nearly impossible to resist, and our team has been on the search for 24-hour dessert delivery businesses.

Today I woke up inspired to make a better kind of cookie: dairy-free, gluten-free, and (almost) sugar-free (thanks to Oh She Glows for the inspiration!).

Ingredients (I discovered brown rice and coconut flour today)

I tend not to use measuring cups or spoons, so here are the rough estimates (adding more or less of wet/dry ingredients for desired cookie consistency):

  • 1 cup brown rice four
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup raw oats
  • 3/4 cup Earth Balance
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup carob chips and cacao nubs
  • 3 packets of truvia
  • (Next time: peanut butter and walnuts)

Bake @ 350 for 10 minutes.

A little on the crumbly side, but not bad! They will do for tonight.

Anyone have favorite late-night craving suggestions?
