Keto fat bombs are a good way to get the required fat for any Ketogenic weight loss program. When you your eating plan contains 70+ % of fat.These little snacks are filled with some of your daily fats. Not only are they good for you, they also taste great. I decided to share four of the best bombs. They are easy to make and take very little time. I bet you can't pick just one. Lets get to the kitchen and make these tasty little bombs.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 10-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Coconut Oil, Refined
  • 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/3 Cup Coconut, Shredded
  • 6 Tbsp Raw Honey
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1-2 pinches Sea Salt, to taste

Directions

  1. Assess the hardness of your coconut oil. If it's very cold in your home, you may need to partially melt your coconut oil before proceeding. If your coconut oil is completely melted, I recommend chilling it in your fridge for a bit to let it harden a little. Ideally, you want to be adding coconut oil that is easily scoopable but still completely solid. Add coconut oil, cocoa powder, honey, vanilla extract, and salt to your food processor.
  2. Process until all ingredients are evenly mixed, stopping the food processor once or twice to scrape down the sides. Taste the mixture to be sure that the flavor is to your liking.
  3. If necessary, you can put your food processor in the fridge for a few minutes to harden up your mixture. If using silicone molds, lay out your molds on a cutting board, then use a ladle to fill all the molds with the coconut oil mixture. If using a surface lined with parchment paper, use a spoon to drop dollops of the mixture onto your surface.
  4. Carefully transfer molds or surface to your freezer and freeze until fat bombs are solid, then pop out and store in a lidded container in your freezer. Repeat process until all fat bombs have been frozen. These will keep in your freezer indefinitely. You can also store them in the fridge, if you prefer.
