8 Incredibly Tasty Fat Bomb Recipes
If you're on the keto diet, you're probably familiar with keto bombs or fat bombs, which are little balls or cups of fat-rich ingredients that can provide fuel for low-carb, high-fat dieters. As a bonus, fat bombs are pretty darn delicious. Who doesn't love bites of nut butter and chocolate, or bacon and cheese, or any other combination of rich, creamy savory or sweet flavors?
Fat bombs are intended to be eaten as a snack or dessert. With a wide range of calories and fat grams, keto bombs can be an energizing, satiating snack, or the perfect fix for that sweet tooth while keeping your sugar intake low and your carb count under your daily limit.
How to Make Fat Bombs
Typically, fat bombs are made by melting or heating an oil, such as coconut oil, until it's a liquid. Then, you add flavorings and binding ingredients, like coconut milk or nut butters. Sweeteners, like stevia, erythritol, or monkfruit may be used if these fat bombs will be on the sweeter side. Once all combined, pour the keto bomb mixture into molds or small candy cups, then pop them in the fridge or freezer to harden.
