Keep your room cool and dark at night for the best sleep. Aim for 7 to 9 hours. Lack of sleep slows our metabolism and spikes levels of the hunger hormone known as ghrelin.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Vegan chewy chocolate chip cookies
This recipe will make old fashioned, chewy chocolate chip cookies that stay moist even after they have cooled. If you want a minimally sweet cookie, simply add less coconut sugar and fewer chocolate chips (1/2 bag of chips and reduce coconut sugar by 1/4 cup).
This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies.
2/3 cup Coconut oil (room temperature-not liquid)
2/3 cup Coconut sugar
1 tbsp Vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups Gluten Free Flour

1-1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking powder
