A Little Joy in your Day!

Keto Friendly RecipeAlmond Joys might have been named after the feeling of joy you got when you bit into one. They’re sweet, covered in chocolate with sticky and chewy coconut in the center. You also get that addictive crunch from the almond nestled between the layers.

Coconut is high in saturated fat and is considered one of the world’s healthiest foods. Both coconut and almonds are full of fat fat, fiber and electrolytes. Add in some natural cocoa powder and a low carb sweetener and you’ve got a healthy snack.

The Almond Joy candy bar itself is a pretty good contender for a high fat snack; it’s the sugar content that’ll ruin your diet! One Almond Joy candy bar will run you about 29 grams of carbs (along with 13 grams of fat and 2 grams of protein). Our recipe makeover amounts to 15 little almond joys with only half a gram of carbs! They also have half a gram of protein and 4.7 grams of fat. And at only 50 calorieseach , you can easily enjoy a few of these at a time without worrying about overeating.

Almond Joy Fat Bomb

Our Low Carb Chocolate Bar recipe came in handy for these fat bombs. It’s a great base for any chocolate fat bomb, really. Though you can always use the basic chocolate fat bomb portion of our Coconut Butter Cup Fat Bombs recipe (can you tell we like coconut?).

We decided to turn these treats into fat bombs as they were pretty close to fat bomb material to begin with! They’re simple to make and store easily in the freezer for a pleasant treat during the day. This also gave us an opportunity to try out our new candy mold we got from Amazon! It’s a heart shaped, silicone mold for ice cubes and candies (dish-washer safe too!).

You can easily use an ice cube tray or even silicone cupcake liners to make this recipe.

  6. Freeze for about 5 minutes just so the coconut oil solidifies.

  8. Freeze for as long as possible, but at least 1 hour.
