If you’re not already familiar with the keto diet, you’re probably wondering what the heck fat bombs are, and why you’d ever want to eat one. The name is a little weird, we admit. But if you’re going keto (more on that here), they’re about as necessary as RXBARs and chicken sausage are to the Paleo diet.
Basically, a keto fat bomb is a snack ball that’s high in healthy fat and low in carbs. They’re usually made with ingredients like avocado, nut butter, and coconut, and can be sweet or savory. Think: bacon and egg bombs in the morning and chocolate PB bombs after lunch. Now that we know fat isn’t public enemy No. 1, go ahead and enjoy these hand-held, keto-friendly eats.
Most keto fat bombs are round, but there’s no rule that says they have to be. These look more like brownies or fudge squares, and taste like fall. You can decide whether to include the protein powder and maple syrup, depending on how protein-packed or sweet you want them to be.
These bombs combine two big health trends: matcha and keto. The green tea powder has a little bit of a bitter taste but balances out well with coconut butter, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Roll them in shredded coconut for extra texture (or skip it to keep the number of ingredients low).
You didn’t think we’d forget about bacon, did you? The keto fave had to make an appearance. These addicting breakfast bombs mix it with hard-boiled egg, avocado, mayo, and a serrano pepper. Throw a little lime juice in there if you want a fresher taste. Keto eaters, your breakfast dreams have come true.
