Midterm Stress Relief: Nga’s Peanut Butter & Bacon Temptations

IMG_4015

I know, I know, reading break ended last week and I should really start studying now…but I just can’t!

For those of you who know me well, I’m a very fidgety person, and absolutely hate sitting down in my chair studying for 12 hours straight. It just feels so…so…LAZY.

I need to get up and running to work my energized muscles, and baking is just the perfect activity! It not only works out your arm muscles from hand-mixing, but it also requires you to always be thinking on your feet, running from the oven back

to the bowl, the pantry back to the kitchen.

Baking, if you think about it, is really EXERCISE! 😉

Of course…I don’t think my professors will buy into my logic. But, nonetheless, in order to get through this stressful week of studying, I have baked the most indulgent recipe of all:

Nga’s Peanut Butter & Bacon Cookies

Peanut Butter & Bacon Cookies

Peanut Butter & Bacon Cookies

What’s better than bacon for breakfast and peanut butter on toast? Well, BACON AND PEANUT BUTTER IN A COOKIE! The is the ultimate treat that will satisfy your craving for sugary food during crunch times like midterm week.

It only takes 3 major ingredients, some bacon, an egg, and some baking soda to create this treat. A very easy recipe if you want something quick!

Nga La is a WONDERFUL cook and baker who I met through a school organization called Enactus. Not only does she know how to make creative recipes and have a caring heart for helping out the community, but she also designs very innovative graphics. Check out her “365 Design Project” for some samples of her work.

If you’ve been studying hard this week, go treat yourself by baking up a batch! Thanks for stopping by, and good luck to you if you have exams this week! 🙂
