Each of these fat bomb recipes are HIGH FAT, low carb, and varying amounts of protein.
The fat in these recipes is meant to keep you full between meals, AND fill you up so you don’t overindulge (which can be easy to do with high carb treats…).
Are These Recipes Low Carb?
Yes! Each Fat Bomb is made to be a tiny treat with a high-fat, low-carb ratio. Some of the above recipes go as low as two net carbs per serving!
By utilizing healthy fats like coconut oil and peanut butter, these treats stick to your low carb diet while giving you a much-deserved sweet break. We all could use more blissful bites throughout the day!
You likely noticed a lot of the ingredients in the above fat bombs recipes are similar, so I’ve broken down the most common healthy fats used to give you an idea of the how’s and why’s of fat bomb construction!
Coconut Oil: Coconut oil has been heralded for its health benefits for as long as cultures have been consuming coconuts.
Packed full of healthy fats that process quickly through your liver, coconut oil is a poster child for ketones, the namesake of the keto diet that benefits your brain and energy level.
Low Carb Peanut Butter: Protein. Nutrients. Vitamins. Healthy fats. Is there anything peanut butter can’t offer?
This fat bomb favorite is particularly valued for its heart-healthy benefits. Feel free to swap it with your favorite nut butter of choice!
Butter: Typically, if you’re on a diet of any kind, you avoid butter as much as sugar.
But! Butter actually offers some very keto-friendly nutrients, specifically a little magical fat known as conjugated linoleic acid (say that five times fast!). From its anti-cancer properties to its weight loss benefits, CLA is not something to be avoided. Bring on the butter!
Low Carb Chocolate: For these recipes, you can either make your own, or grab a bag of Lily’s Dark Chocolate — super delicious, and they’re even starting to sell them in stores like Walmart and Target!
Each Fat Bomb recipe has you make these treats in little truffle-sized bites (this mold is a MUST for beautiful fat bombs!) — for a reason! While the flavors are delicious and you’ll be tempted to gobble them up, moderation is key.
One fat bomb comes with health benefits and low carb wonders, but too many, and you’ll be suffering the consequences. Follow the serving suggestions on each recipe to make sure you don’t break your whole day!
Fat Bombs are the sweet treat answer to your low carb and keto friendly needs! Toss a few peanut butter fat bombs in your post-workout bag; grab a moment of bliss with a strawberry cheesecake fat bomb after lunch; indulge in a chocolate fat bomb as the night winds down.
These health-packed truffles are a good reminder to treat yourself, especially on a low carb lifestyle!
