What is a fat bomb?
A fat bomb is your best friend on a keto diet! Melt in your mouth, mini low carb treats that will keep you full and feelin’ good!
Usually a combination of a type of fat like butter, oil, or cream cheese, herbs and spices, and sometimes keto sweeteners. Then add on ingredients for flavor and texture like nuts and seeds.
Fat bombs are designed for those on a keto diet, but can be enjoyed by anyone. Fat bombs are yummy, quick treats that are often made in batches, stored, and eaten over a few days or weeks. Most freeze well too!

Pro tip: Fat bombs are great snacks to help keep you full between meals. Munching on one of these little guys can help keep you from continuously snacking on empty calories and carb loaded foods.
Tips for making the perfect fat bomb
Using fat bases like coconut oil or grass-fed butter are great to use as your main ingredients. Dairy based fats like heavy cream and cream cheese need to be kept cold, so keep this in mind when deciding what fat bomb recipe you want to use.
