Next time the zzz's elude you, skip the sleeping pills and try this triple-play of nature's sleep inducers. Cherries contain natural melatonin, the potassium and magnesium in bananas are muscle relaxants, and eating toast releases tryptophan and serotonin to relieve anxiety. Pair this snack with some herbal tea and you'll be down for the count.

Watch how to make this recipe.

Combine 1/2 cup water, the cherries, honey, cloves, ginger and cinnamon in a small saucepan set over high heat; bring to a boil and immediately reduce to a simmer. 

Cook until most of the liquid is absorbed, 10 to 12 minutes. Add salt to taste. Discard the cinnamon and ginger. 

Spread half of the almond butter on each piece of toast and top each with half of the cherry compote. Arrange the banana slices on top. Enjoy!
