What Are Keto Fat Bombs?

For those of you who aren’t living a keto lifestyle, you probably aren’t too familiar with what a fat bomb is.

Sure, you’ve probably heard the term used, but you probably aren’t clear one what it is or why it’s considered a good thing for a keto-er.

A fat bomb is quite simply a snack or dish made up of a combination of high-fat ingredients such as butter, coconut oil, seeds and nuts, and other keto-friendly ingredients.

They’re the quintessential snack for an LCHF (low carb, high fat) diet, and they’re often eaten as a way to help induce ketosis.

How to Make Peanut Butter Keto Fat Bombs

  1. Combine. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine peanut butter, butter, and Swerve.
  2. Microwave. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring frequently, until the mixture has melted. Stir well until all the Swerve if properly melted.
  3. Pour into a 24-cavity truffle mold or into the prepared baking pan. Place in the freezer for 2-4 hours until the truffles are set. At this point you can unmold the truffles, place them in a plastic bag and store in the freezer until you’re ready to eat them.
  4. Cut. If using a baking pan, cut into 24 squares and store the squares in the freezer until you are ready to eat them.

Is Peanut Butter OK On Keto?

Technically speaking, every food is ok on keto. Keto isn’t so much about what you eat, but more about hitting specific nutritional targets. And since you’re trying to hit a higher fat intake while keeping your carb count low, peanut butter is actually perfect for those of us living a keto lifestyle.

Are Keto Fat Bombs Healthy?

How healthy fat bombs are really depends on your current diet. Keto fat bombs are best for those of us on a keto diet, but are healthy for other diets as well.

If you aren’t super familiar with the keto diet, here’s a little breakdown of how it works. Those on a keto diet limit their carb intake and increase their fat intake in order to make their bodies burn fat instead of carbs for energy (which is known as ketosis).

So for those of us on a low carb/keto diet, keto fat bombs are the perfect way to increase fat intake while keeping your carb intake low. It’s also a great way to curve sweet cravings while still keeping things low carb.

Tips and Tricks for Making Peanut Butter Fat Bombs

  • This recipe can be made in small truffle molds or as a fudge in an 8 x 8 baking pan.
  • Use this truffle mold for perfectly round truffles.
  • If you’re using silicone truffle molds, you do not need to prep them.
  • If you’re using a baking pan, line the pan with parchment paper with enough paper to cover the bottom and sides of the pan.
  • You may need to check how many carbs are in the peanut butter you’re using as it can very between brands.
  • These fat bombs are meant to be kept frozen. Not only do they hold together better, but they also taste good this way—and they keep you from scarfing the whole lot down in one sitting. Or that’s the theory anyway.
  • If you’re allergic to peanut butter, use almond butter. You can also try this same recipe with cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter if you prefer.
  • Be sure to check out my maple peanut butter mousse and my peanut butter chocolate bars if you are a peanut butter fan.
  • I also use peanut butter in my Kenyan Kunde recipe, as well as in my West African stew recipe.
