Bananas SkinFood Sunday

 

Here we are again with Skin Food Sunday. Today we’re talking all things bananas. I will make it short this time; Let’s go BANANAS!

”Healthy food = Healthy mood”

Banana benefits for the skin:

Bananas are jam packed with antioxidants and powerful nutrients that are not only amazing for the skin but overall body health.

  • Bananas are full of Potasium and Zinc – Which means they can help hydrate dehydrated skin and help fight cause acne causing germs.
  • Full of Vitamins A, B, C – Heals dry skin, smoothes aging skin. Protects against free radicals and premature ageing. Helps in the production of collagen production.
  • Contains Amino acids and Lectin – Strengthens connective tissue and helps maintain skin elasticity.
  • Bananas contain 75% Water – They can keep the skin super moisturized and prevent it from peeling.

Banana Oat Cookies

Who doesn’t love cookies? I know I do. I could eat them all day, everyday haha. But that wouldn’t be the best thing for me. So I came up with the best solution; a healthy cookie. The one you can eat everyday, without “feeling guilty”. Yes, with little quotes around the words feeling guilty, ‘cause you should never feel guilty when eating a cookie!!

Serving 9 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 Bananas
  • ½ tsp Vanilla
  • 60 gr Rolled oats
  • 60 gr Instant oats
  • 30 gr Dark chocolate chips
  • Pinch of salt

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius
  2. Mash the bananas; make sure there are no big lumps left. And stir in the vanilla.
  3. Add both of the oats and mix very well.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and fold them in carefully.
  5. Make 9 little round cookies on a baking paper lined baking tray.
  6. Sprinkle a little bit of salt on every cookie.
  7. Bake the cookies for about 12-15 min.

Have patience and let them cool completely, haha. Now go and eat!

(Keep in fridge!)

And Glow Glow Glow!
