Let me start by explaining fat bombs. To understand why keto followers love fat bombs, you have to start at the core of the keto diet. The idea behind keto is to eliminate carbs from your diet. Your body typically uses carbs as fuel. However, carbs are not the most efficient form of fuel. They are quickly burned and your energy levels will fizzle just as fast as you ate that big cookie. However, when your body has a steady stream of carbs coming in, it is trained to use those carbs as energy and relies on the quick cheap fix of a carb.
When you remove carbs from your diet, your body has to look elsewhere for fuel. It turns to burn fat. Fat has been found to be a much more efficient way to energize your body and brain. Fats give you a steady stream of energy and can actually help improve brain function. When your body starts turning fats into ketones which it then uses as fuel, it is said to be in ketosis. Being in ketosis has been shown to help lower the risk of heart disease, help improve insulin levels and also help you lose weight. You will also feel full longer and have a more steady energy level throughout the day. Fat as fuel is amazing!
Once your body relies on fat as its main source of fuel, you need to be sure to consume enough fat to stay energized. That is why many keto followers love fat bombs. They are a great source of healthy fats that will give your body a boost. Fat bombs are a great afternoon snack that will provide a little pick me up, much like an afternoon cup of coffee. Fat bombs also taste delicious and are quite convenient to make and eat.
So how do we make such an incredible food taste like cookie dough? Easy! We use almost all the same ingredients that you would use to make cookie dough but with a few little tweaks. First, we use cream cheese in our recipe rather than pure butter. Cream cheese is high in healthy fats and gives the fat bombs a nice tangy flavor. Next, we use so nourished granular erythritol rather than sugar. Erythritol is a very low carb, natural sweetener that gives the fat bombs a wonderful, sweet taste. Lily’s chocolate chips are the last little keto trick ingredient we add. These chips are keto approved and packed with rich, chocolate taste. Mix all the ingredients up and, ta-da! Perfect fat bombs.
If you love eating raw cookie dough but are also committed to your keto diet, these cookie dough fat bombs are exactly what you need. Now you can eat cookie dough all the time and feel good while you do it. Hurray for amazing, keto recipes! Enjoy.
