Gluten Free and Sugar Free Snack: Bacon Wrapped Dates!

Are you doing any new years resolutions? I am doing a no sugar January and let me just tell you, it’s been pretty hard! Especially over the weekends. This past weekendΒ I was going to a Birthday Potluck at the beach and I needed to bring a snack that was gluten and sugar free so I made bacon wrapped dates! Have you ever had some? It’s actually a Spanish tapas snack and they are the best sweet and salty combo! It’s super easy to make and always a hit with the crowd. Here is how you make them!
