  • 2 lbs. asparagus ends trimmed
  • 8 slices bacon thick or regular cut
  • 4 Tbsp. butter or dairy-free butter, melted
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut sugar*
  • 1 tsp. salt to taste
  • ¼ tsp. pepper to taste
  • Parsley optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Layer bacon strips on a wire rack and then place it on the lined baking sheet. Be careful not to let the strips overlap.

  3. Bake bacon in oven for 12-16 minutes, depending on thickness**, or until strips are more than halfway cooked. Let bacon cool slightly before handling and drain bacon grease from the pan.

  4. Wrap 4-5 pieces of asparagus in one strip of bacon. Place asparagus bundles back on the wire rack.

  5. In a small bowl whisk together the melted butter, garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper. Brush over asparagus bundles and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until asparagus is cooked to your desired doneness.

  6. Serve with a sprinkle of finely chopped fresh parsley and enjoy!
