Triple Cocoa Coconut Fat Bombs have become my go-to snack, even my kids love them! I started making them when I first went keto. I’m not full-time keto, but I used it to get fat adapted for my sheep hunt (which I’m totally glad I did!). I ended up making a lot of my own food for my sheep hunt, including these and DIY High-Fat Dehydrated dinner.
(Here is everything I packed on my sheep hunt)
I like these fat bombs because they aren’t just pure fat, they the have a little texture and nutrient. Oh, and they have chocolate!
Cocoa butter is the fat found in chocolate. It contains healthy saturated fats, that have anti-inflammatory properties. I also like it because cocoa butter is hard at room temperature, so if you take your fat bombs out of the refrigerator they don’t melt.
The Triple Cocoa Coconut Fat Bombs are so fast and simple to make I bring them on every long hike I do. I also made them for my sheep hunt, and I often pack them for my kids as a snack at preschool (they are nut-free).
These are my go-to fat bomb, they are great for a little snack to fuel all your adventures, even if that's just surviving the day. Each bomb contrains about 1 g NET CARB.
In a medium saucepan, gently melt cocoa butter over LOW.
Once cocoa butter is melted stir in coconut, cocoa powder, vanilla, salt, and stevia*.
Fold in chopped chocolate.
Scoop 1 tablespoon mixture onto a small sheet tray, lined with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. (I use a #50 scoop)
Refrigerate until hard, then store in an airtight container in the fridge. These keep really well.
* personally I don't like stevia and prefer my fat bombs less sweet, but make your fat bombs the way you like! Also, you can add a tablespoon of coconut sugar which will add less than 1g carb per fat bomb, this is how my husband likes them and if you are hiking hard that little bit of carbs won't kick you out of ketosis.
