Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Dates

Dates. Stuffed with goat cheese. Wrapped in bacon. Rolled in maple sugar. These might be the world's most perfect paleo junk food.

They are certainly the world's greatest late night snack. You might want to keep a batch of these on hand in your fridge at all times in case of the late night munchies. Sure, goat-cheese stuffed anything isn't going to be paleo health food, but sometimes you want to eat something that you probably shouldn't but (gosh darnit) you're going to anyway.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING IMAGES MAY CAUSE DROOL ON YOUR KEYBOARD.

Bacon and maple sugar were made for each other.

It's like this. Dates are naturally sweet, and when you add creamy, tart goat cheese and salty, PERFECT bacon, things are going to get hot and steamy. In a hurry. Roll everything in a fine dusting of 100% pure maple sugar and that's all she wrote, folks.

Try to just eat one, we dare you.

The best thing about this recipe? SUPER EASY. It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to put a batch of these tasty snacklings in the oven and 20 minutes later, voilà! A paleo/primal-friendly snack that will impress all of your friends. They certainly impressed our friends.

The perfect food for bacon-lovers everywhere.

Martha Stewart would be jealous. These tiny paleo hors d'oeuvres are fit for a queen's paleo gathering. Mouth-watering and filling, you could eat a few of these stuffed dates and be satisfied. Or you could eat them all and regret your food choices. Either way, you're going to enjoy every minute of heavenly, bacon-wrapped consumption.

OPTION: If you're "not doing dairy" or just don't enjoy goat cheese, you can replace the cheese with a clove of garlic or some chopped mushrooms. Oh yeah, that would be good...
