Wayzata spa clinic Skin Therapease and Long Lake bakery Country Cupboard recently joined forces to create the treat of all treats—a delicious cookie that also nourishes your skin. So what makes this cookie so good for your epidermis?
Almost everything in it. Dried cranberries work as a detoxifier. Vitamin E in walnuts helps nourish skin, and coconut oil and bananas build good bacteria in the intestinal tract, helping to prevent breakouts.
Skin Therapease owner Patricia Scherven says the salon’s focus is “on the inside out, because no matter what you do or eat, it shows up on the skin.”
Country Cupboard’s Paleo Skin Care Cookie:
3 ripe bananas (mashed)
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tsp. pure vanilla
1/4 cup toasted chopped walnuts
1/4 cup toasted chopped pecans
1/4 cup dried chopped prunes
1 cup dried cranberries
2 cups gluten-free oats (or old-fashioned whole oats)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Add everything except oats and cinnamon to mashed bananas; mix thoroughly.
Then add oats and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Mix.
Scoop 1 oz. portions and place on parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Slightly flatten each mound.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
