Face Mask/ Coconut Banana Bread

 

It's true. Once again, like the salad dressing/facial toner recipe, most of the ingredients in this awesomely delicious banana coconut bread recipe, would make just the most deliciously moisture rich face mask.

It is a tough call for us isn't it? But we're ladies here and we're already glowingly beautiful so why not whip it all up into a super-powered cake? With chocolate? Or even better, whip it together, keep some aside for a face mask, make the rest into cake and eat the cake while your face mask does it's work. At the end of it all- you'll truly be nourished from the inside out.

Match made in Natural Body Care heaven!

    And I have the PERFECT batch of organic ripe bananas to use for BOTH of these recipes! I can munch on banana bread during the low glycemic lecture tonight! And then afterwards, I can treat myself to a facemask! You rock Meghan girl! ;-)

    Hey Megan, Fabulous! I have been WAITING for a banana bread recipe, it's my daughter's favorite and I hate the traditional ones so much. Quick question - Azura (my 2 year old) is allergic to eggs. I normally use egg replacer but will it work in your recipe (being gluten free and having many variations on the traditional one, I'm worried it won't rise)?' Thank you so much!

    I just got sent back from the long weekend at my parents with a pair of overripe bananas. HOW ARE YOU IN MY MIND?! But I have a confession-- Sometimes, when I eat banana bread, the bread accidentally becomes my face mask. You're a timely gal with timely recipes, and this is (part of many reasons) why I love you. xo aletheia

    My sister made some conventional banana bread last week, which made me want something a little more wholesome. Great timing! I'm also wondering if something besides eggs can be used.

    Just to let you know that I made this last week and it was a HUGE hit with James' office. I send them all my baking so I don't eat it all myself!!! I have to confess that I used buckwheat flour instead of coconut flour and I accidentally put 1/2 cup of coconut oil in instead of 1/4 which just kept it moist, but it was still SO yummy.
