Two flavors, one keto fat bomb.
Yes, you read that right, white chocolate on a low carb diet!
After a recent purchase of cocoa butter, I was itching to play with it. It smelled amazing! But tasting it right out of the bag (it came delivered in block form in a plastic baggy) reminded me of tasteless wax. I was a little skeptical and wondered how much sweetener I’d have to add for it to taste like the low carb white chocolate I’d been reading it would. Turns out, not much! A little bit of erythritol is all it takes! After playing around with a basic recipe for low carb “white chocolate” I decided to mix in some flavors and make some fat bombs out of this new ingredient. Enter butter pecan. Who knew this ice cream flavor was so keto-friendly? Minus the sugary ice cream, of course.
Fat bombs are popular in the keto community and are handy boosts of fat. They’re usually sweet mixes of coconut oil, cream cheese, butter, sweetener and/or cocoa. Savory ones do exist though! Fat bombs are used throughout the day (if you’re busy and didn’t have time for lunch) and deliver the fat you may be missing. They are usually very high in fat (80-90% fat) with some protein and very little carbs. You can easily make some fat bombs using just coconut oil, peanut butter, cocoa powder, and sweetener by melting them all together and freezing in ice cube trays or cupcake molds, or you can get a little fancier with Coconut Butter Cups! The varieties are endless and they’re fun to eat!
This variation is a little more complex, but the flavor you get is out of this world! I like to enjoy 1 or 2 with tea at the end of my day and they are an amazing treat. One key to this recipe is to use powdered erythritol which melts easily into the cocoa butter. If you only have granular erythritol on hand, you can still make it work but the fat bombs may have a slightly grainy texture. While I’m obsessed with the butter pecan flavor of these fat bombs, you can definitely use a different kind of nut to make the recipe a little differently. Chopped almonds or walnuts will both work wonderfully. Hazelnuts are another decadent option. No matter what kind of nut you choose, you are going to love these fat bombs especially if you have been craving white chocolate yet trying to stick to your keto diet. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
