Make Paleo Candied Bacon using only two simple ingredients! The sweet and salty flavor combo of this classic breakfast side will have your family coming back for more!

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).
