WHAT TO EAT NOW: CARAMELISED BANANA AND OAT PANCAKES WITH AVEENO

Last year was only good for one thing: focusing on self care. With us all being stuck indoors, many of us took to YouTube and blogs to find out the best way to get our hair, skin and wellbeing in check. After buying lotions and polishes and serums, we always seem to forget the most important thing we can do for our mental and physical health – eating yummy nutritious food! Aveeno is all about taking care of every part of you, which is why they teamed up with nutritional therapist and best-selling author Madeleine Shaw to show the power of oats! Oats aren’t just something you eat whilst rushing around in the morning, they’re actually one of the most effective ways to help maintain the balance of the skin’s natural barrier! But, if you’re like us and you just want to skip to the good part, have a look at this incredibly delicious and healthy recipe for caramelised banana and oat pancakes below and thank Madeleine later!
