The remainder of this post was one I posted last March. These 'Fat Bombs' are very popular and with Valentines Day in a few weeks time, February 14th in the UK, these could also make a nice gift ... or why not a Mothers Day gift?
So once again I must thank Libby for her article and recipe, which I have linked to below.
"Are you over your fear of fat? If you are hungry do you reach for carbs, protein or a healthy fat? If you want to keep your carbs low, you must limit your carbs and protein, so fat bombs are the secret to keeping hunger at bay. Remember these 2 vital points – before you increase your healthy fat intake you MUST lower your carbs otherwise you are back on the standard American diet (SAD) which is high fat and high carbs AND the fat you eat must be a healthy fat, coconut oil, butter, extra virgin olive oil, etc.
Fat bombs are kept in the fridge until you want to eat them, otherwise the coconut oil will melt or soften. You can make them as a dessert or just to keep when hunger strikes.
125g coconut oil
25g cocoa powder
1 tbs granulated stevia, or sweetener of choice to taste
25g walnut pieces
+/- 1 tbs tahini paste
Warm the coconut oil until melted.
Add all the other ingredients and allow to cool slightly so the ingredients don't settle and sink to the bottom of the fat bomb..
Pour into ice cube trays and refrigerate until semi set.
Once almost set, place a half walnut on to of each fat bomb.
The taste of fat bombs is incredibly personal. How sweet you like them depends on how your sweet tooth has adapted, and if you are a dark chocolate or dairy milk chocolate lover.
The carbs in the fat bomb come from the walnut so you can delete these if you want to.
1 Fat Bomb = 1.2 g carb "
Once again thanks to Libby at 'Ditch the Carbs' blog, which can be found here
All the best Jan
