The tastiest way to eat your fat!
Fat bombs are extremely popular in the keto community and range from sweet and light lemon clouds to hearty bacon bombs! They provide a large dose of fat and are very low in carbs. They’re very important and handy to keep around in case you’re falling short on fat during the day. This is especially easy to do when you’re just starting out on a keto diet. You’ll see just how hard it is, in the beginning, to remember to eat your fat! Lifelong conditioning to fearing fat will do that to you. Enjoying a fat bomb will take care of that for you. They will also give you that boost of energy that you may need.
Fat bombs are delicious and incredibly versatile. Many of them are coconut oil based, which is a convenient ingredient since it’s a liquid above 74°F and a solid below. You can easily stir it into your mixture and just 5 minutes in the freezer, your fat bombs are set and ready to eat!
Coocnut oil is also considered to be healthy on many other levels, not just a great source of keto fat. It has been shown to help improve bone health, is beneficial in aiding digestion, has been shown to help with Alzheimer’s disease and also strengthens the immune system. Coconut oil is also good to have on hand to use as a lotion or incorporate into your skincare routine. A little coconut oil on your skin has been shown to help prevent wrinkles, sagging skin and also heal dry skin. Not only does it taste great but it is beneficial on so many other levels too!
Taking inspiration from one of our favorite snacks in our pre-keto days, we put a spin on the regular peanut butter cup and added nutrient-packed (and lower carb) coconut butter. This is a perfect recipe for someone on a paleo diet avoiding legumes or someone with a peanut allergy. Another option is to use almond or seed butter! The possibilities are endless with fat bombs. However, this low carb coconut butter cup recipe is perfect as is!
A useful tool to have are silicone baking cups. They make removal so easy! You simply pull the molds off the fat bombs and they stay totally intact. We highly suggest using them. If you don’t have them, you can use paper liners, or better yet, pour your “batter” into ice cubes molds! then pop them out as you would any ice cube.
Each of our coconut butter cup fat bombs will give you 26g of fat and merely half a gram of carbs. We suggest enjoying one with a hot cup of green tea!
If you’re looking for more fat bomb recipes, try these chocolate truffle fat bombs from Real Balanced. Just like our coconut butter cups, they make for a perfect bite-sized, keto treat that will satisfy your sweet tooth!
