Have you heard of Millionaire’s Bacon?
Basically it’s candied bacon that’s been coated in sugar and spices and it turns out to be the most decadent treat imaginable. This low-carb version, or Keto Millionaire's Bacon if you will, is sugar free but just as delicious. It makes a great protein and fat filled snack that still satisfies your sweet tooth.

Ingredients (makes 8 servings)
Note: Tamari is gluten-free soy sauce made from fermented soy (always double-check it's gluten-free). Just like natto and tempeh, it's a type of soy products that can be used in moderation.
- Preheat the oven to 400 F/ 200 C and place a rack over a aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Place the bacon in a single layer on the rack.
Note from Martina: I prefer to use a lower temperature setting and bake it at 275 F (135 C) for 60-75 minutes. This way you will avoid burning it.
- Whisk together the tamari with the spices then pour the mix into the Swerve and mix together.
- Brush the mixture over both sides of the bacon then roast for 40-45 minutes until crispy. Allow to cool before serving.
- Store the bacon in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat by placing it under the broiler for 3-4 minutes.
