As I have continued in the process of increasing my wife’s keto profile the desire for a “treat” is ever present when carbs are at a minimum. She asked if I could experiment with some “fat bombs” to help with the desire for “sweet.” The result was a not totally satisfactory Fat Bomb 1, which can still be considered in a pinch; but there was some success with Fat Bomb 2.
- Coconut Oil 2 Tbs
- Peanut Butter (no sugar added type) 2 Tbs
- Slivered Almonds 1 Tbs
- Pure Cocoa Powder 1 tsp
- Stevia 1 rounded tsp
Place the peanut butter and almonds in a flat bottomed bowl. Warm the coconut oil slightly to be sure it is liquid, or nearly so. Pour the oil over the nut butter, and add the cocoa and sweetener. Mix very well until the peanut butter, and oil are smooth with the almonds suspended in them. Place in a refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Use a melon baller or similar to scoop out small balls and place in a separate dish as “bombs.” Use a spoon to scrape any unused mixture into a single mass, and make additional balls. Place the bowl of “bombs” back into the fridge until needed.
