What is a Fat Bomb?

A fat bomb is a low carb, bite-size snack that is popular with keto dieters. Made from fat-rich ingredients (such as peanut butter, cream cheese, coconut oil, etc.), a fat bomb provides a concentrated dose of the good fats that the body uses for energy while on the keto diet.

How to Make Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Fat Bombs

Chop chocolate chips using a food processor or knife, until crumbly. Spread chocolate crumbs out on a piece of parchment paper or non-stick silicone baking mat.

TIP: We love these silicone baking mats because you can wash and reuse them over and over! They are one of our favorite kitchen tools!

Combine the cream cheese, peanut butter, and sweetener using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer until it’s smooth and creamy.

Roll the mixture into balls (about 1 heaping teaspoon each) and then roll the balls in the crushed chocolate, and place in an airtight container in the freezer.

TIP: We made pretty big peanut butter cheesecake balls, using a cookie scoop. You’re welcome to make smaller fat bombs if you’re looking to reduce the number of net carbs in a serving.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Fat Bombs Should You Eat in a Day?

Fat bombs make a great snack or want to satisfy sweet cravings. They’re concentrated with good fats, which provide energy while in ketosis. 

However, you definitely don’t want to skip out on regular food. A fat bomb does not provide the full nutritional package that your body needs to get through an entire day.

Need a quick pick me up or an on-the-go snack — grab a fat bomb! One or two a day should be plenty.

What is the Best Way to Store Fat Bombs?

You can keep fat bombs in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. However, you can also freeze them. Freezing is my favorite storage method because you can make a big batch and simply thaw out one at a time as needed. 

To freeze, place the fat bombs in a large freezer bag. They can stay good in the freezer for up to a month. When you want to eat one, remove it from the freezer and allow to thaw at room temperature until soft enough to eat.
