If you’ve recently made the switch over to the paleo diet, and you’ve been wondering what types of snacks you can still serve at your next dinner party, then I’ve got just the thing for you. This recipe will show you how to make the best bacon wrapped stuffed dates, and best of all, it’s super easy to make. They’re naturally sweet because of the dates, but with savory tones as well from the lemon juice, garlic powder, and onion powder. It’s an interesting combo that you have to try.
