Keto fat bombs are small treats that are high in fat and low in carbs (so, literally a fat bomb). These little bombs are awesome when you need something sweet, but also work as a quick breakfast, as a yummy snack, a pre or post workout snack, or really whenever you need something quick & keto throughout the day.
Is there anything better than the combination of chocolate and peanut butter? These delicious keto buckeyes are a delicious candy and even make a great gift!
What You’ll Need
8 oz softened cream cheese, I used Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter, I used Kerrygold
1/2 cup peanut butter, I like Justin’s
1/3 cup low carb sweetener, I used Swerve sweetener
1 tsp vanilla, I used Madagascar Bourbon
1 pinch Pink Sea Salt, I used Sherpa Extra Fine
1/4 cup almond flour, I use Anthony’s (this is optional if the dough is too sticky to roll)
4 oz low carb chocolate chips, I used Lilly’s Dark Chocolate baking chips (unsweetened baker’s chocolate like this one here is another, less expensive alternative!)
What To Do
With a hand mixer, cream together the first seven ingredients until everything is incorporated well and a little fluffy.

Refrigerate for about 20 minutes or until the mixture firms up a bit.
Right before you take the dough out of the fridge, melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler.
Scoop the dough into 20 bite-sized balls and dip each into the melted chocolate. Place each ball onto parchment paper, freeze for an hour then store them individually in the freezer for easy, on the go snacks! These also store well in the fridge. Enjoy!

Can I use Cocoa Powder?
Sure thing! Just make sure it’s unsweetened, so check the label for carbs.
They might come out a little crispy if you put the chocolate in a double broiler lol. Bain Marie, or double boiler, is the method, for anyone silly enough that’s about to broil their chocolate.
Grammar policing aside, this recipe is crazy good!
