The Best 20 Fat Bomb Recipes (1)

What are fat bombs?

When you’re on the keto diet, your body relies on burning fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. And that’s where these delicious morsels come in handy with their high-fat content! One serving usually packs a decent amount of fat, enough to help keep you full without stimulating insulin (a.k.a. the hormone that leaves us hunting through our pantry shortly after eating).

It’s convenient and delicious, which is why we tend to prepare several batches on a regular basis! These are honestly one of the easiest keto desserts you can make and I’ll totally understand if this ends up as a staple in your household.

Why eat fat bombs?

The beauty of making these and keeping them handy is that it gives your body the energy it needs without too much fuss. Pop one in your mouth and your hunger is as good as gone!

Now, depending on your daily macro needs, you can have about one to two servings a day without feeling guilty about it. You can enjoy these either as a quick savory snack OR make it sweet to have them double as a yummy dessert.

Now, this particular list is the dessert-variety, so you’ll usually see the same ingredients used throughout the recipes I’ve listed below:

  • Softened cream cheese
  • Butter or coconut oil
  • Coconut flour or almond flour
  • Monk fruit sweetener, stevia, or erythritol
  • SunButter, almond butter, or peanut butter
  • Sugar-free chocolate or unsweetened cocoa powder

These ingredients not only make fat bombs incredibly gratifying but is also what makes them the perfect keto dessert!

Equipment and tools you’ll need

For many of these recipes, a silicone mold (also known as a “fat bomb mold”) is used to shape them nicely because you can easily pop them out after they’ve hardened. Additionally, I find that an electric mixer and a blender comes in handy when trying to prepare and mix the ingredients.

How to Store Keto Fat Bombs

Since one of the main ingredients is either coconut oil and nut or seed butter, it is recommended to store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. Be sure to check the instructions to determine the proper storage for the ones you’re making.
