Last week I decided to venture into the world of fat bombs – Dark Chocolate & Nut Fat Bombs to be precise. I had been quite scared of fat bombs, thinking that they were somehow going to blow up and cover me in dripping, hot fat or even worse, bacon!!

This recipe for chocolate fat bombs from Martina at looked like a good and easy place to start. I had all the ingredients, having just received a delivery of powdered erythritol, a low-carb sweetener and I was keen to try it out.

What Is A Fat Bomb?

Fat bombs are a high-fat, low-carb and usually low protein snack. They are often made with coconut oil, butter, nuts, seeds and non-sugar sweeteners. They can be both sweet or savory. If you are looking for ways to increase the fat intake in your diet, fat bombs are a great solution.

Stirring Dark Chocolate & Nut Fat Bombs

With a family of five, I cook quite a few meals each week and this was, without doubt, the best thing I cooked last week! The recipe takes about 10 minutes to make.

The fat bombs then go in the fridge for 30 minutes to solidify. After that, it’s straight to the freezer where you can keep your private stash of decadent Dark Chocolate & Nut Fat Bombs for up to 3 months, if they last that long.

Alternatively, just keep them in the fridge for a week. They do start to melt if left out of the fridge so it’s a shame that you have to eat them up quickly!

These fat bombs are so rich and divine that you will only need to eat one to feel that life is complete.

I used a silicone mini-muffin mold. Ideally you would use a smaller silicone chocolate or candy mold as I found the fat bombs were a touch too big.

If using a mini-muffin mold or tin, fill them up to two-thirds full. Alternatively, an ice-cube tray works well too.

I highly recommend trying this recipe – fat bombs are the perfect high fat, low-carb treat or snack for ketogenic and low-carb diets.
