  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Line 2 baking trays with foil. Chop the walnuts, then tip into a bowl with the olive oil, parsley and lemon zest. Season and mix well.
  2. Using a teaspoon, fill each date with the walnut stuffing and pinch to enclose.
  3. Wrap each date with a piece of bacon, securing in place with a cocktail stick. Arrange on the baking trays and brush with the maple syrup. Bake for 20 mins until the bacon is crisp, turning halfway through cooking. Cool for 5 mins before transferring to a serving platter. Scatter with any remaining herby filling.
