Bacon Wrapped Dates

As I’m currently doing the Whole30 finding delicious snacks that fit the rules is proving to be challenging. That was until I found these bacon wrapped dates!! Bacon and dates together – two of the best things in the world make for paleo candy!!! The perfect afternoon pick-me-up, post-workout snack or starter at a party.

INGREDIENTS

1 packet of bacon
24 dates
Toothpicks

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to bake 180.

Start with uncooked bacon – it should also be minimally processed and have no added sugar. 

Soften pieces by putting them in the microwave for 30 seconds - bacon that is cooked a little bit first is easier to wrap around the dates. 

Once you’ve done that, cut each piece of bacon in half. 
Start individually wrapping the dates, securing them with a toothpick. 

Place wrapped dates on a lined baking tray.

Bake for 10 – 15 minutes (leave them longer if you like crispy bacon).

Leave for 10 minutes to cool before serving.
