Why should I be eating Fat Bombs? 

Since beginning the keto lifestyle, one of the most popular and suggested foods I see mentioned are fat bombs.  The question is, why are they so popular and recommended? There are three most common reasons why eating a fat bomb should be considered.

  1. Fats take longer to break down in your digestive tract.  This means that your blood glucose levels are slower to rise, and you will stay full for longer.
  2. Since fat bombs are a concentrated amount of fat in one bite, they are ideal for those who aren’t meeting their fat macros with just meats or cheeses throughout their day.  If you are struggling to meet your fat macros, a fat bomb is a great choice.
  3. They satisfy the craving for a dessert that is sugar-laden and high in carbohydrates.

What is the best-powdered sugar substitute? 

If you have seen many of my recipes already, you know that my preferred sugar substitute in the keto lifestyle is monk fruit.  Monk fruit sweetener can typically be substituted 1:1 in recipes, which makes it much easier to adjust traditional recipes to the ketogenic lifestyle. My preferred brand of monk fruit sweetener is Lakanto.

Another popular option that measures 1:1 in recipes is erythritol.  This can be found in the popular brand, Swerve.  Both are excellent options that typically do not create issues for those in ketosis.

How to Make Almond Joy Fat Bombs

To make this recipe for chocolate fat bombs with coconut and almonds, you will want to gather your ingredients and supplies.  I prefer to prepare my square pan with parchment paper before I mix together my ingredients.  In a bowl, you will mix together the coconut oil, butter, vanilla extract, and coconut flakes.

Softening the butter in advance is a must, but you do not want it or the oil melted.  Add in the powdered sweetener as directed, then place the almonds on top before freezing to harden.

Once the mixture has hardened, you will remove from the pan, cut into squares.

Next, you will dip into melted chocolate.  Before serving, allow to cool and harden completely.  You may wish to keep these in the freezer in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, combine coconut flakes, coconut oil, butter and vanilla extra. Stir to combine.
  • Sprinkle powdered sweetener over the top of the mixture and stir until fully incorporated.
  • Using an 8x8 square pan or bread loaf pan, line with parchment paper for easy removal to cut into bar
  • Place mixture in the pan in a smooth and even layer.
  • Place 3 almonds in a line so that there will be 3 almonds in each bar.
  • Freeze for 15-30 minutes.
  • Remove from the freezer and cut into bars or almond bites (1 square per almond).
  • Place parchment paper on a baking pan and melt chocolate
  • Dip bar (or bites) into chocolate, coating entirely. I found it easier to use a fork to pick up with and remove any excess chocolate.
  • Place bar (or bites) onto parchment paper and allow to harden. If you are short on time, you can freeze for about 10 minutes.Enjoy!

    I made some yesterday and they turned out perfect, I switched out the almonds for pecans which are a grade A keto item as well and used a icecream scooper to cut out circles after the coconut mixture had frozen solid into a thin brick but they turned out awesome !!! Thanks for the new recipe xoxoxo

    I made the individual/almond bite size. It is a great treat when I crave something – especially with all the chocolate bars for Halloween being in my house. They are going to be one of my regular treats now.

    i made a half recipe of this not being sure if I would like it or not. I didn’t have enough coconut for even a half recipe so subbed out chopped almonds for the other half of coconut. I also cut the bars into bit size pieces (one almond per bite) and only put chocolate on the top. They were DELICIOUS! I have put them in the freezer to dole out a little at a time. Worth making!

    These are amazing!!! I am just now starting to add fat bombs to my Keto diet plan and I made these yesterday. I cut the recipe way down since it’s just me eating them, and added more shredded coconut. I also tempered my Lily’s chocolate and made them in Easter egg silicone molds. These taste like the real deal – thank you for this recipe!
