Keto Fat Bombs to the Rescue
The term ketogenic fat bomb is kind of self-explanatory. They are small snacks that are low in carbs and high in fat, which make them ideal for a keto diet. They are also simple to assemble, often using no more than three ingredients like this one.
Keeping some fat bombs ready in the house or stored in the freezer for an emergency can help you stick to your goal. When you need a boost of energy (or chocolate) they are right there.
Depending on your favorite flavors you should be able to find a fat bomb recipe that will work perfectly for you.
Using a Great Butter
This recipe calls for the use of almond butter which is a great source of fats and energy. Unfortunately, peanut butter is not an option for keto as peanuts are technically a legume that carries many carbs.
Thankfully, getting over the loss of peanut butter is made easier with options like almond butter and cashew butter. Almond butter is a great tasting alternative and has become commonly available. You may also choose to go with a cashew butter which can be more costly, but some people prefer the taste. Just be cautious as some varieties of nut butter will have sugars or honey already added.
Add Your Own Variations to the Recipe
The beauty of these keto almond butter fat bombs is that they are a lesson in simplicity. But, they don’t have to stay that way!
Think about adding some of these additions for some new flavors:
- Unsweetened cacao powder
- Chopped or whole nuts
If you need a bit more sweetness, pair them with a strawberry or a few blueberries.
Chocolate and almonds combine to make the perfect dessert.
- 1 bar of 100% dark chocolate (100 g)
- 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) almond butter
- Stevia or erythritol, to taste
- Dash of cinnamon powder (optional)
- Break the dark chocolate into 8 squares.
- Mix the sweetener and cinnamon powder with the almond butter.
- Use a knife to spread the almond butter over 4 of the squares.
- Place the other squares on top to form sandwiches.
