Cocoa and Coco seem to be natural companions. As the fat bomb variations are fun to make, and provide useful keto snacks for my wife, I gave the combination a spin. It has has a bit of a Bounty/Mounds taste, and adds another flavour to the assortment.
- Grated or Desiccated Coconut 2 well rounded Tbs
- Cocoa Powder (100%) 1 tsp rounded
- Almonds (optional) 10
- Nut Butter 1 heaped tsp
- Stevia 1 Tbs
- Coconut Oil 3 Tbs
Warm the coconut oil to a liquid. In a food processor blitz the sweetener, cocoa and almonds (if used) until well mixed. Add the coconut and nut butter and mix well. It can be made without the nut butter, but the texture seems to suffer a little. Pour in the coconut oil and mix again until even. Spoon the mixture into an ice tray and sprinkle the tops (which will become the bottoms when finished) with a small pinch of loose coconut. Place the tray into the freezer for 10 minutes. When set, remove the bombs from the tray and place in a bowl. Store in the fridge until needed.
