Oh my goodness!
Bacon Chocolate Chunk Cookies! (Basic recipe from Bulletproof Recipe Lab)
Keto Bacon Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Prep Time: 15 min.
Total Time: 45 min.
Makes: 16 delicious cookies
- 2 cups cashew flour (I blend raw cashews in the vitamix.)
- 3 tbsp. grass-fed butter
- 3 tbsp. Collagen Protein. (I like the Bulletproof Brand.
- Stevia (I put in a dropper of organic stevia.)
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 pastured egg
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
- A pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup high quality, dark chocolate, chopped. (I use a dark chocolate bar and used half of it.)
- 4 pieces of cooked chopped Nitrate-free Bacon
- Preheat the oven to 350. Line one baking tray with parchment paper.
- Add the cashew flour, collagen protein, salt and baking powder into a bowl.
- Pour the apple cider vinegar directly on top of the baking powder and allow it to react (it will go fizzy).
- Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir to combine evenly.
- Taste the dough and adjust the sweetness if needed.
- Begin rolling the mixture into balls and place them onto the lined baking tray.
- Press the balls as flat as you like, they won’t rise much, so if you like them softer and chewier keep them quite full. However, if you like a crunchier cookie, press them quite flat using your hands to shape them.
- Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Remove from the oven when they’re ready and place the cookies on a wire cooling rack.
- Store in an airtight container when completely cooled.
This morning Wendy came over for bulletproof coffee. She had just finished the 90 day Fit and Fabulous Gold Program, and was ready for her final weigh in and measurements. Wendy wasn’t overly concerned about her weight. Her main goal was to lose her menopausal pooch. She was feeling a bit matronly and pudgy around the middle. Her beautiful clothes were getting tight.
BIG NEWS! She lost 2 inches off of her waist, and 1 inch off her hips! Wendy also lost 4 pounds. She has easily changed her habits and is confident that this will be a life long program. Wendy has committed to almost daily meditation, and is feeling centered and grounded throughout her day.
It has been so great to work with Wendy. She started the program in good health. She was able to change a few habits and now her daily life is even better! Wendy is the youngster in my OutdoorFit program. She is certainly Fit and Fabulous…Aging Optional!
February is the perfect month to start the 90 Day Fit and Fabulous Gold Program. How would you like to feel 3 months from now? Energetic? Lighter? Vibrant? Reach out let’s have a conversation to see if the program is right for you.
Wendy made me a Beautiful Wendy Cettina Design thank you scarf. The yarn is by Madeline Tosh. The color is Graphite and the pattern is Fractal Danger. How cool is that?
Elena started the 90 Day Fit and Fabulous Gold Program the end of October. She was concerned about starting during the Holidays . It turned out to be the perfect time. Elena was suffering from back pain when she saw me doing a founder on Facebook. We connected and she joined my Program and is down almost 12 pounds and 2 inches off of her waist. Elena’s back is strong and she is feeling so much better! She really didn’t think she was going to enjoy OutdoorFit especially in the winter. She said the workouts under the trees brings her joy and happiness! The Winter Warrior season is the Best!
I am enjoying the 30 day Challenges. I love the concept of the 4 minute workout. You can challenge yourself and experience result in only 4 minutes! We finished our 100 day squat challenge today. The 30 day 8 point plank challenge was so effective that I am bringing it back in February. I am also energizing January with Mountain Climbers. 4 minutes! 8 Rounds! 20 seconds on 10 seconds off. Would you like to join in? Head over and like my Facebook Page. The Mountain Climber Fun is happening there!
I have lost ten pounds, my face is looking a bit drawn, and I am noticing my wrinkles so much more. What can I do? I am 64. I am so grateful that I have lost the weight that I put on during menopause. I am Fit and Healthy. What are a few wrinkles?
This weekend Dan and I went to a black tie wedding . I was so grateful that I could fit into a skirt that I wore to my son’s wedding 11 years ago. We look like we belong on top of a cake!
I have been debating with myself whether or not I should post this video. I will be honest it was a little upsetting to see myself looking so wrinkled. But, this is not all about me. It is about Ivone, who is doing great on my 90 Day Fit and Fabulous Gold Program. She is feeling so much better and is getting stronger while losing weight at the same time! Go Ivone!
It is all about your attitude, right? I have been reading High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard. Yes, I want to be a High Performer at 64! Brendon recommends you coming up with three words that describe your Future Self. I have been thinking about it. Enthusiastic, Energetic, Vibrant are the three words that came up. My New Year’s word is Positivity. It all works together. This morning, I was driving to OutdoorFit feeling a little flat. It was cold and windy this morning and I remembered my words. It helped and we had a great workout.
Sissie, Meredith, Jane!

Last month, it was an 8 Point plank challenge which was so effective I think I will do it again soon.
This month, it is a 100 squats a day challenge. This morning I went on You Tube to see what has been done around the 100 squats a day. Of course, it is young women measuring their butt sizes and they want bigger butts. So, they are squatting. I am doing squats because I want to be strong, healthy and fit. There is something to the discipline of adding an exercise to your day everyday.
Here is a short video of how I made squats more exciting for my OutdoorFit ladies!
It is cold where I live. ” Adding a little cold to your life is a foolproof way to enhance your brain function, increase your recovery, burn more fat, make your mitochondria more resilient, and build your willpower.” From the Bulletproof blog.
Would you like to feel energized, Fit and Fabulous? Go outside and do 100 squats.
It is not too late to start!
