Easy & Healthy Banana Cookies

Banana and Date Cookies
With Oscar fever over in Los Angeles, the usual focus on clear skin and strife for perfection is in the air. Many ask, "What is the secret to looking 'perfect'?"
Is there even a secret? Could it be the next miraculous face cream, detox combo, exercise style or diet? The questions could drive you mad! In fact, so many people are crazed, dazed and confused with all the information out there. For me it’s about keeping it simple—eat well, exercise regularly and if you can't, don’t beat yourself up. Love and be loved...and be creative.
That being said, I’m here to inspire and share some insight on healthy eating—hence, to influence beautiful skin, well-being, and all else that is a consequence of what we eat! The recipes are quick, easy, healthy and tasty.
On to the food! Just to prove that you can eat sweet things that are healthy for you and still satisfy your sweet tooth, here comes the first recipe. Enjoy!
