Decadent Bacon Wrapped Dates

If you haven’t yet had Medjool dates, they’re popular in the Paleo world because they are a natural sugar alternative.

Want a recipe for a quick and simple, yet decadent Paleo appetizer?
 
Look no further! Remember those amazing Coconut Butter Blondies? Well, I had some Medjool dates leftover, and needed to whip up a quick appetizer for a guest last night. Meet my new best friends- Bacon Wrapped, nut stuffed, buttery Medjool dates.

If you haven’t yet had Medjool dates, they’re popular in the Paleo world because they are a natural sugar alternative. They are naturally high in potassium (more than a banana!) and rich in fiber and B vitamins.

Health Benefits

Medjool dates- rich in potassium, high in fiber, B vitamins, low on the glycemic index.
Cashews-lower in fat than most nuts, high in oleic acid, excellent source of magnesium.

So you can feel good eating this appetizer, right? After all, its Paleo. The carmelization, butteryness, the crunch ahhhh. Can’t help myself. They are so good! Go make these now!

Bacon Wrapped Dates {Paleo} 

Ingredients
10 Medjool dates, pits removed
5 slices bacon, cut in half
1/3 cup cashews, chopped

Directions
Preheat broiler. Spoon some of the cashews into the center of the date. Wrap bacon strips around dates and secure with toothpick and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Place in oven and cook 5 minutes, turn and cook another 5 minutes so that they cook evenly and drain well. Serve warm and enjoy!
