    What is a fat bomb?

    Ketogenic fat bombs are snack-size treats that have high fat content, but are super low in carbs. They are literally bombs of fat that serve as fuel for your body when you need an extra boost (like after working out) or can even serve as a meal replacement.

    Keto fat bombs are extremely helpful for keeping people on track with their health goals because:

    • They are small, conveniently portioned, and perfect to take on-the-go.
    • They usually require very few ingredients (5 or less) and are super simple to make (just mix & refrigerate).
    • They’re more like delicious treats than prudent meals (think flavors like low-carb cheesecake or pizza).

    Are fat bombs healthy?

    Naturally, the idea of eating something fat-heavy may sound unhealthy, but like with most foods, it’s all about balance and making healthier substitutes when possible. When we say “fat,” we don’t just mean butter & lard. You can use other fatty items like coconut oil or cheese made from tree nuts (like cashew cheese).

    Also, you should not rely exclusively on one thing to achieve your health goals, so like don’t be eating fat bombs for every single meal, kay? If you’re doing the ketogenic diet, improve your chances of healthy success by incorporating low-carb vegetables and exercise into your overall keto health plan.

    What’s in a fat bomb?

    If you’re intimidated by how to make a fat bomb, you shouldn’t be. Basically, making a fat bomb involves 4 easy steps:

    With the exception of ghee, these are all also vegan-friendly.

    Step 2. Add some flavor. This is where you add stuff with the purpose of giving your fat bomb some flavor. Here are just a few of the many possible ideas:

    Step 3. Add mix-ins to give texture, to make your fat bomb more satisfying to bite into. Some suggestions include:

    Step 4. Mix it all together and portion out into muffin tins or roll into balls, then refrigerate/freeze for a few hours. The result is bite-size fat bombs that you can take anywhere!
