What are Fat Bombs? And Why Should You Make Them…

Keto fat bombs are the perfect low-carb, high-fat snack. Fat bombs are a quick little treat that can give you a boost of energy on the keto diet.

You can call them “fat bombs”, “fat fudge”, “keto bombs”, or “energy bites”!  Whatever you call them, they are an easy way to enjoy something sweet while sticking to this keto way-of-eating.

Ingredients in Keto Coconut Fat Bombs

To make a keto fat bomb, you’ll generally mix a higher-fat content base ingredient with other flavorful ingredients like sweetener, extracts, nuts, or coconut.

For these toasted coconut fat bombs, you’ll use common ingredients like butter, cream cheese, you will also need:

Coconut oil. I like extra-virgin coconut oil because it has a rich flavor and aroma.

Sweetener. For these, and most other fat bombs, I like to use powdered sweetener.  The brand I reach for is Swerve Confectioners.  You can also make your own powdered sweetener by blitzing granulated sweetener in a high-powered blender.

Coconut flour. Coconut flour is very absorbent and adds a lot of fiber and nutrition to these fat bombs.

Unsweetened shredded coconut. Make sure not to grab sweetened coconut by mistake!

To make it even more flavorful, you can even add a little bit of coconut extract!

How to Toast Coconut

Toasted coconut is one of my favorite ingredients to add to baked goods. Although coconut is delicious straight from the bag, toasted coconut adds a whole new dimension of flavor to these keto fat bombs.

There are a few methods of toasting coconut. You can use the stovetop, the oven, and even the microwave.

Personally, I prefer the stovetop method because it’s so fast and easy.  Add the coconut to a large skillet over medium heat.  Toast, stirring frequently, until the flakes are golden brown. It will go quick, so keep an eye on it.

To toast coconut in the oven, spread the coconut flakes on a baking sheet in a thin layer and bake in a preheated 350F oven. This won’t take more than 5-10 minutes, so stay close!

How to Store Fat Bombs

You can store these coconut fat bombs in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days. Alternatively, you can freeze them in an airtight container and they will remain fresh for 2-3 months.

If you decide to freeze them, you’ll want to thaw them at room temperature before enjoying.
