Peanut Butter Fat Bombs : Keto : Low Carb

Fat bombs are super easy to make, but their low-carb, high-fat content is also great for avoiding a blood sugar spike.

Keto/low carb fat bombs are made from a high-fat base such as nut butter, coconut oil, avocados, or cream cheese. Then, you add tasty low-carb goodies to go with the flavour. This is usually ingredients like sugar-free chocolate for a sweet fat bomb or bacon for a savoury fat bomb.

The high-fat base in this recipe is made from a combination of peanut butter and and coconut oil for a rich, creamy texture. Topped with a bit of chocolate ganache, it becomes a decadent treat that’s perfect for an on-the-go snack or when you need to satisfy your sweet tooth!

These tasty bites pack a powerful amount of energy! Make them ahead of time and store them in the fridge for a ready-to-go, delicious snack.

Ingredients
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
3/4 cup peanut butter (no added salt and sugar)
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 – 4 drops liquid stevia

Chocolate Ganache
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
6 tbsp. coconut oil
1 – 2 drops liquid stevia

Method

2: Line a 6-muffin tray with muffin paper cups. Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the peanut butter mixture into each cup.
3: Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or overnight, to set.
