Super Simple Bacon-Wrapped Dates

by Angie Anew on February 20, 2012

Last night I was craving something good. Something really good. Then I remembered a post on a blog I follow called A Nutritionist Eats. The author recently wrote about goat-cheese stuffed bacon-wrapped dates. Wow! While I’m not eating much dairy lately, I usually have bacon and dates on hand. So I made a simpler version.

Inspired by A Nutritionist Eats


  • Dates (I used Medjool)
  • Bacon (I used an organic, no nitrate added version; U.S. Wellness Meats makes a Whole30 approved bacon.)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  2. Cut each date in half and remove the pit. (NOTE: Most recipes I found involve wrapping a whole date, but I used half a date for each piece. I thought the crispy-to-caramelly ratio was better that way.)
  3. Wrap each half date in a half slice of bacon; continue until you have “enough” (like that’s even possible).
  4. Arranged wrapped dates seam-side down on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is brown and crispy.

Enjoy! And believe me, you will.
