What I do keep on hand is little nibbles like these Chocolate Cheesecake Fat Bombs. They are simple to make and so good even my picky kids like them.
What is a fat bomb?
A fat bomb is a small bite that is high in fat and low in protein and carbohydrates.
Why do you need fat bombs on keto?
Strictly speaking, you do not need fat bombs on keto. Many people do just fine without them! They are handy to have, however, because they are the ideal snack for when you need one. If you get hungry between meals or get caught without something prepared, fat bombs can help you keep your macros on track.
How many fat bombs can you have on keto?
Fat bombs are treats, not meal replacements. I recommend having no more than one or two a day. (Depending on the size.)
Tips and Tricks
- A cookie scoop makes transferring these to your molds very easy.
- You can use most any kind of mold in almost any size here. I used a mini muffin tin when I photographed these, but have since started using silicone molds because they are much easier to get the cheesecake bites out of.
Store these fat bombs in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Alternatively, you can freeze them for up to 3 months. If you are eating them from frozen, let them sit out for about 10 minutes before serving.
How to Make Chocolate Cheesecake Fat Bombs
First, start by combining the cream cheese coconut oil, butter, sweetener, cocoa powder, and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer.
(If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can also use a hand mixer or a food processor.)
Beat until the mixture is very smooth.
Transfer to molds and freeze.
Once the bottom part is frozen, melt Lily’s chocolate and pour over the cheesecake.
Freeze for about 2 hours, until solid. If you like, you can drizzle with a little keto-friendly chocolate syrup, like Choc-Zero.
