Keto Fat Bomb Recipes – The Ultimate Guide
What is the Keto Diet?
The basis of the Keto diet is getting your body into Ketosis by eating a Low Carb High-Fat diet (LCHF).
Your body will naturally start to use fat as an energy source instead of sugar/carbs. We noticed that we felt lighter and clearer headed on the keto diet.
Benefits of a Ketogenic Diet
There are so many benefits to this healthy eating plan.
You will lose weight FAST and in a healthy way. The high fat will naturally fill you up and reduce your appetite. Energy levels will increase, brain function will improve and you help lower risk factors for diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and strokes.
Things to Know About The Keto Diet
Some people may experience keto flu when they first start eating LCHF.
You could get headaches, feel fatigued and have issues such as nausea and stomach cramps. This will all pass so stick with it.
Other problems may be constipation and low nutrients such as Calcium, Potassium, and Magnesium. To combat this you need to make sure you eat wholesome foods high in these nutrients and also fiber. As with any new eating plan, it is wise to consult your doctor before you start.

What Is A Fat Bomb?
It is more than likely you have grown up learning fat is bad for you and will lead to weight gain. But now research is showing us that the right kind of fat is good for you and even better, the right fat will help you lose weight!
So, what is a fat bomb exactly?
Similar to energy balls or keto protein balls but instead full of goodness from high-fat, low-carb ingredients. Fat Bombs contain ingredients such as coconut, nut butters, avocado, and diary-like butter and cream.
How Many Fat Bombs Can You Eat Per Day?
It is important to note that Fat Bombs must be eaten in moderation.
When you make a batch of these delicious keto snacks it can be tempting to eat more than your body needs.
Be sure to only eat one or two of these fat bombs and store the rest for a fast keto snack. They are packed with energy and good fats but they also have many calories and the carbs could add up too.
Read on to learn how to make fat balls for ketosis.
How To Make Keto Fat Bombs
Creating your own delicious fat bombs is not as difficult as you may think. In fact, there is usually only three easy steps to make a fat bomb.
Fat Bomb Ingredients:
- A Healthy Fat – This can be nut butters, peanut butter, coconut products, avocado, ghee, or bacon fat.
- Flavor – Think healthy and nutritional tastes such as spices like cinnamon, turmeric or Himalayan Pink Salt. Cacao or extracts like Vanilla and Peppermint.
- Texture- create a full sensory experience with crushed nuts, bacon pieces, chia seeds or shredded coconut.
The healthiest way to use nut butter such as peanut butter is to make the butter yourself and not use the industrialized version. If you make a peanut butter bomb recipe with store bought product, first check how much sugar and carbs they have.
You can make butter out of any nuts, check this post here to learn more.
If you want to add some extra health benefits to your fat bomb. Perfect Keto have amazing products like Keto Collagen that help you get improved digestion and better hair & nails, skin and joints.
How To Make a Fat Bomb:
To make a fat bomb just mix all the ingredients together (some oils make need melting first), shape into balls either by hand or by using a chocolate bomb mould.

Lastly either cook, pop in the fridge or freeze your fat bomb depending on the ingredients you have used.
