Paleo Bacon-Wrapped Dates

Dates are wonderful, glorious treats . . .

But, dates with bacon? Even better! Truly, everything is better with bacon! (See 365 Days of Bacon if you need more proof or validation of that assertion.) There was a time in my life where I did not eat pork; honestly, I’m not sure how I survived. Without further ado . . .

Ingredients

raw datesDirections

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Remove pits from dates and replace with almonds (if using).
  4. Wrap dates in raw bacon.
  5. Place dates with seam-side down approximately 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes in oven.
  7. Remove from oven and place on paper towels to absorb excess grease.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I recommend using a full piece of bacon to wrap the dates even though it may seem rather large at first. The bacon will shrink as it cooks.
