If you care about your weight, there are probably few phrases that strike as much fear in your heart as FAT BOMB.
These days, mounting evidence says fat—especially the unsaturated kind—is really good for you. Research shows that it can fill you up, make it easier to maintain a healthy weight, and even help you live longer.
For those new to the keto diet, fat bombs are delicious high-fat, low-carb and low-protein snacks. They are a convenient source of energy and are ideal for those who need to add healthy fats into their diet to meet their personal macronutrient targets. Some also make them on the Fat Fast or as pre or post workout snacks.
Folks, it’s time to get on board the fat bomb train. Which is easy to do, because clean recipes for fat bombs are suddenly everywhere. Think of them like energy balls, but instead of being made with things like oats or dried fruit, they’re made almost exclusively from high-fat, low-carb ingredients. Think coconut, coconut milk, nuts and nut butters.
Coconut balls with a hint of cinnamon to help you reach your fat macros in a delicious way.
1 cup coconut butter
1 cup coconut milk (full fat, canned)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp stevia powder extract
1 cup coconut shreds
Place a glass bowl over a sauce pan with a few inches of water in it to create a double boiler.
Place all the ingredients except shredded coconut in a double boiler over medium heat.
Mix the ingredients while waiting for them to melt.
When all the ingredients are combined remove the bowl from the heat.
Place the bowl in the fridge until it is hard enough to roll into balls, about 30 minutes.
Roll the contents into one inch balls and roll them through the coconut shreds.
Place the balls on a plate and refrigerate for one hour.
