  • 1 package(s) cocktail wieners, uncured, fully-cooked, nitrate-free, smoked (about 25 weiners for 6 servings)
  • 11/2 cup(s) almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1 large egg(s)
  • 1 tablespoon(s) coconut oil melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and pull out a baking sheet.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients (almond flour, sea salt, baking soda) in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. In a separate small bowl, whip together the egg and melted coconut oil with a fork.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together to form a ball of dough.
  5. Place the dough ball on a cutting board, and cover with a piece of parchment paper cut to the size of the baking sheet you will be using.
  6. Roll out the dough using a rolling pin (or something cylindrical), until you have a flat thin sheet approximately ⅛ inch thick.
  7. Cut strips approximately 1-1 ½ inch wide to make the “blanket” for your piggies.
  8. Remove cocktail weiners from package, and pat dry.
  9. Carefully wrap the cocktail weiners in the strips of almond flour, forming the dough firmly around the sausages.
  10. Place the same sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet and then place the pigs in their blankets onto the lined baking sheet.
  11. Bake at 350 F for 20 to 30 minutes, until dough is cooked through and lightly browned.
  12. Let the piggies cool for a few moments on the baking sheet before removing them.
  13. Serve with dijon mustard, ketchup, or another Paleo-friendly dipping sauce.
