prep time:60 min

ready in:1 hr 30 min
  • 1 lb bacon
  • ~30 olives
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • toothpicks
  • Fill 2 small bowls with water. In one, soak the olives, and in the other, soak the toothpicks. Let soak for 30+ min. This is to reduce saltiness / oiliness of the olives! also to make sure your toothpicks don’t light on fire.
  • Rinse the olives and strain the toothpicks.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut the bacon into 2 inch pieces.
  • Wrap each olive with 1 piece of the bacon, secure with a toothpick, and set on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.
  • Repeat for all olives. Bake for 15 minutes, remove, sprinkle lightly with the coconut sugar, and return back to oven for another 10 – 15 minutes (check for level of crispiness! I’m sure different bacons have different cooking times)
  • Serve immediately, or if reheating is necessary pop in the oven at the same temperature for 5 minutes.
