If you just as me is eating according to the keto diet you probably already know that your main source of energy should come from fat. Sometimes it can be hard to find good easy snacks that contain a very high percentage of fat. The solution however is to make “fat bombs” that you can use whenever you feel for a little snack.
There are many different recipes that describe how to make fat bombs. I recommend you to simply try out one or two of the recipes below and see which ones that suit you the best. I personally am allergic against nuts, almonds and peanut butter so I have not been able to try the recipes that contain this myself.
The first recipe I found on the internet for fat bombs comes from My low carb road to better health
Ingredients for fat bombs
3/4 cup melted coconut oil
150g almond butter
60 drops liquid Stevia
150g melted salted butter
Take the above ingredients and stir them together. Put them into small muffin holders or other thing and put into the freezer for around 30min. Can be kept in the freezer if needed. Whole batch ends up at 91% fat, 4% protein and 5% carbs.
Based on the above recipe for fat bombs I have created some recipes on my own that you are free to try out. Personally I do not like to have additional sweeteners included so I always try to remove the Stevia and instead add 85% chocolate. You can mix around a little with the sizes of the different ingredients to get the one best for your taste. If you need something more sweet you can add on additional Stevia.
Ingredients for my fat bombs
300g of butter (mix between normal butter, almond butter or coconut butter)
100g of 85% chocolate
100g unsweetened coconut
You can also add in some other things to give the fat bombs some additional taste
Examples of things to add into your fat bombs
Dried unsweetened fruit
Cocoa nibs from cocoa plants
In order to make your fat bombs you should first soften the butter, almond butter or coconut butter (according to recipe). Make sure the butter is soft and easy to handle. Make sure you do not completely melt it. Also melt the chocolate so you can handle it in a good way. Mix butter, chocolate and the other ingredients together into a nice mix. After you have thoroughly mixed together all the ingredients take out some kind of form. It is preferred to have a non-sticky form like a silicone form or similar.
Add the mix for the chocolate bombs into the non-sticky form and make it into small pieces. It is also possible to not include the chocolate into the mix with the other ingredients and instead dip the small fat bombs into chocolate. It will make them look better but not do any difference in taste.
Once everything is done put the fat bombs into the fridge for around 30 minutes. You can either keep them here in the freezer or store them in a cool place. Remember that the major part of the fat bombs is made from butter which melts at room temperature so make sure you keep them cool.
