Doughy Bacon Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

Bacon cookies

4 slices bacon, baked 8-10 min. @ 400 degrees F

1 stick butter, softened

1.5 cup brown sugar

.5 tsp salt

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

2.5 cups all-purpose flour

.5 tsp baking soda

.5 tsp baking powder

.5 cup chocolate chips

.5 cup dried cranberries

Beat butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat in the rest of the ingredients except for the bacon, chocolate chips, and cranberries. Fold in the rest of the ingredients. Spoon 1.5 tablespoon size balls onto a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Cool. Eat!

This was for the Superbowl party Sunday. Everybody loves bacon right? So it looked a little under-done because I only baked them for 8 minutes mostly because I was afraid of over-cooking them (I burnt a previous batch of bacon. What a waste!), but also because we were in a bit of a hurry. Needless to say, they still tasted really good! So if you like your cookies soft and doughier then feel free to do what I did!

Healthy Fudge

2 avocados

2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/8 tsp salt

2 1/2 cup walnuts

1/2 cup dates

Blend all ingredients except walnuts and dates. Pulse in walnuts and dates at the end. Pour into a pan and freeze for 1 hour. Cut into squares and roll them into balls. You can opt to roll the balls in cocoa powder to keep them from sticking together in a bag.

*Thanks to my bestie and her mama for sharing this recipe with me! I like to keep these in the freezer. It keeps them hard and chewy.
