As you know, the ketogenic diet is a great way to lose weight and take care of your health.
That said, you’ve probably seen that hitting your fat macros is sometimes harder than it seems, and since you need a ton of fats to stay on ketosis − between 70 to 80% of fat, these recipes will come in handy to ensure you get the necessary fats from your diet while cutting the headaches.
This type of recipe has received the name of “fat bombs” because they contain almost no protein and no carbohydrates. They’re the perfect way to stay in ketosis and lose weight fast.
The recipes that follow are tasty and can serve as snacks to eat throughout the day, so you’ll never have to worry again about eating enough fats on keto.
1. Chocolate Fat Bombs
I put these one first because, well… Who doesn’t LOVE chocolate?
I’d easily say that being able to eat chocolate as you like (IF you like dark chocolate) is probably one of the biggest highlights of the keto diet.
That said, these keto chocolate fat bombs are quite easy to make and taste delicious.
I’m currently in Bali right now, and since there is no chocolate (at least no affordable one), we’ve learnt to make these little chocolate wonders with the cocoa we do have here, and I must say we’re totally amazed. I never thought a chocolate cake could taste so good without chocolate and without sugar, lol.
2. Strawberry Shortcake Fat Bombs
After chocolate… Strawberries!!
These little keto strawberry fat bombs are made with simple ingredients and won’t take much time to make.
What I like about them is that you can keep them in the fridge for seven days, plus I might go as far as to say they taste even better after one or more days in the fridge!
3. Vanilla Ice Cream Coffee Smoothie
Want to drink coffee to get pumped up for your day?
What about eating a delicious vanilla ice cream?
Wait, I’m actually starving for a delicious smoothie right now…
Oh! Jessica from Forget Sugar Friday actually made a recipe that combines the three… awesome!
4. Maple Pecan Fudge Fat Bombs
These delicious maple & pecan fudge fat bombs are absolutely brilliant. Not only does maple extract and pecan go perfectly well together, but the vanilla extract and cinnamon really push it a step further.
It has a perfect texture and a unique taste that you will absolutely love if you’re into sophisticated yet easy desserts.
Eat them as a snack on the go or simply after any keto meal to boost your fat intake.
5. Almond Joy Keto Fat Bombs
These keto fat bombs are made from simple ingredients: coconut flakes, coconut milk, coconut oil, and almonds.
If you like coconut, these little bites will literally blow your taste buds away. I didn’t think almonds could go so well with coconut, but they definitely do.
Also, this is a no-bake recipe, so it’s perfect to make sure we keep all the nutrients and it’s also very quick to make.
6. Butterfinger Fat Bombs
I love these small bars, they’re so crunchy and chocolatey… yum!
Besides, they only take about 20 minutes to make, and you can make enough for the whole family at once.
7. Keto Pistachio Truffles
I LOVE this recipe. I had never found a keto fat bomb with pistachio before, but I think pistachios are great for pastry. In fact, they’re quite a thing in Turkey (I don’t know if you’ve ever been there).
These contain mascarpone and vanilla, which gives them a surreal flavor.
If you’re into pistachio as I am, and as Turkish people are, try these out!
Bonus: White Chocolate Pecan Fat Bombs
Containing no less than 30g (!!) of healthy fats and only 0.5 g of carbs, these delicious “white chocolate” butter pecan fat bombs are all you need to put a smile on your mouth.
They’re actually made with cocoa butter, vanilla extract, butter and pecan nuts and can be eaten as a regular snack (but full of fats) or as a dessert.
Bonus 2: Keto Tiramisu Mousse
With only 3 ingredients and made in 5 minutes or less, this keto tiramisu mousse is the best fat bomb when you need something sweet Right Now.
The texture is dense and creamy, and the taste is mesmerizing.
Bonus 3: No Bake Ferrero Rocher
Have you ever found yourself missing Ferrero Rochers on the ketogenic diet?
Well, not only can you make your own easily, but it turns out they’re also no-bake and actually a fat bomb!
In other terms, it means you can eat 10 in a row without feeling guilty at all (it would actually make you Lose Weight!).
