It’s no secret that I eat meat. A lot of it.
I’ve always been a meat eater, but ever since Blake and I moved in together, I eat it almost once a day (if not twice!). Lately we’ve been grilling up a storm. Steaks, chicken breasts, chops…you name it!
I decided to get a little creative and make a caveman treat…with MEAT.
I posted the below photo on Instagram (with no text), and 3 people said it looked like a cat.
I just don’t see it!
Then- I felt like a total nerd, because the reason they said cat…was because I said “Can anyone guess what’s happening in my kitchen right meow.”
I see a dinosaur. But not a cat.
So yes. All you need are 2 simple ingredients to make these crunchy delicious treats:
- Bacon ( I used medium thickness)
- Coconut Palm Sugar
It doesn’t take a Top Chef to be able to make these.
Roll the bacon around in the coconut sugar…making sure it’s all covered.
Then, place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT).
And BAM. You’ve got yourself some delicious, crunchy, candied bacon!
I should rename this recipe to…
HEY! Or how about…. Strong Chick Candy.
How to Make Paleo Candied Bacon
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 30 minutes
- Total Time: 35 minutes
- 1 pound of uncured hickory smoked bacon (no added sugar)
- ~1/2 cup – 3/4 cup coconut palm sugar
- First, preheat oven to 350F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Next, place coconut palm sugar on a large plate. Then, rub each piece of bacon in the sugar, making sure they are fully coated.
- Place bacon on baking sheet. Then sprinkle a little more coconut palm sugar on top if need be (you will most likely have leftover sugar).
- Place in oven at 35 and cook for 25-30 minutes or until desired tenderness.
- Let cook for a few minutes and then remove bacon. Make sure you remove bacon before completely cooled, or you will have lots of extra sugar stuck to it!
