Frequently Asked Questions
What are fat bombs?
Fat bombs are small snacks that are very high in fat, low in carbohydrates, and typically low in protein.
Do you need fat bombs on keto?
You don’t NEED fat bombs on keto, but they are helpful, especially in the early phases. Getting enough healthy fat in your diet can be a challenge, and fat bombs can go a long way to help to keep hunger at bay.
What is the purpose of keto fat bombs?
Fat bombs can be used to increase your fat intake and help you reach your maro targets. They are most often used when you have already consumed all of the protein you need for a day, and you are still hungry.
How many fat bombs can I eat on keto?
View fat bombs as a snack - NOT a meal replacement. For this reason, it is a good idea to stick to 1 serving. The exception to this is when you find yourself in a bind and haven’t had time to prep food. Overdoing it on fat bombs is going to be a lot better for you than reaching for your kids carb-heavy snacks.
How do you store these Chocolate Keto Fat Bombs?
Store these fat bombs in the freezer in a sealed container. They will keep for up to three months.
Variations for this Recipe
- You can use MCT oil in place of the coconut oil; however, your fat bombs will not be as solid. I recommend substituting no more than half.
- Any nut butter can be used in place of the peanut butter.
- You may use 3 tablespoons of powdered peanut butter in place of the peanut butter.
How to Make Chocolate Keto Fat Bombs
1 First, melt the coconut oil and peanut butter in a medium saucepan.
2 Next, whisk in the cocoa powder and Swerve. Whisk until well combined.
3 After that, stir in the vanilla extract.
4 Transfer the mixture to a measuring cup with a spout.
5 Stir again, and carefully pour the mixture into a lined mini-muffin pan. Freeze until solid.
Fat Bomb Tips & Tricks
- If you are using something other than Swerve confectioners (or other confectioners-style sweetener, I recommend processing it in a food processor or high-speed blender until fine).
- Make sure you read the label on your cocoa powder. I have found that the number of carbs can vary from brand to brand.
- You can use a regular measuring cup to pour the chocolate into the muffin pan, but I have found that this makes a big mess! For this reason, I strongly prefer using a spouted measuring cup.
