Questions and Answers
Q: What is a fat bomb?
A: A fat bomb is a keto-friendly snack, loaded with fats from ingredients of your choice - butter, cream cheese, nut butter, coconut oil, etc.
Q: Why do you need fat bombs?
A: Because they are delicious. Also because they are a simple way to add fats to your diet when you aren’t getting enough at meal time, as a snack to tide you over between meals, or, my personal favorite: when you know you are about to be around foods you shouldn’t be eating, eat 1-2 beforehand and feel more satisfied // less tempted to eat those dreaded non-keto foods.
Q: What goes in fat bombs?
A: Fat base + flavor enhancers (vanilla, salt, stevia, cocoa powder, etc.) = fat bombs. Meaning, basically you can customize them as you’d like, minus sugar and other non-keto ingredients. There are many recipes on the internet, but here’s our favorite (buz it’s easy + delicious):
Equal parts butter and nut butter of choice (1/2 cup each makes about 12 mini muffin size bombs)
Salt, vanilla, sweetener of your choice to taste
Q: How do you make fat bombs?
Melt butter in double boiler
Add nut butter when the butter is 60-70% melted
Stir occasionally to ensure equal mixing
Add in salt, vanilla, sweetener if needed
Keep over heat for a few minutes to ensure flavors are equally mixed
Distribute into mini-muffin tins or ice cube tray (we like to use this thingamajig)
Store in freezer until ready to eat!
