You can look for these beauties on the buffet table tomorrow at the Murph BBQ.
Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Dates (modified just a bit from The Paleo Chocolate Lovers’ Cookbook by Kelly V. Broznya aka The Spunky Coconut, check out her blog and the cookbook, both are awesome)
1/4 cup nut or sunbutter (I used peanut butter since we have an almond sensitivity in our house)
1 1/2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon honey
Pinch of salt
Water, as needed
1 lb large, soft, Medjool dates, pitted
1 1/2 lbs bacon, traditional or thin slice (not thick)
Preheat the oven to 400. In a small bowl mix together the nut butter, cocoa powder, honey, and salt. Add a splash of water as needed. You want it thick enough to form into little balls.
Carefully slice the dates to open just one side, you don’t want to slice in half. Open them up and stuff them with the nut butter-cocoa mixture. Stuff them enough so they’re full but where you can close them back up like they were never cut.
Cut each slice of bacon into thirds. Wrap each date with a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place on a baking sheet.
Bake the dates for 20 or until the bacon is crispy. Let cool before serving.

World Class Fitness In 100 words
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. -Greg Glassman, Coach
