6 Keto Fat Bomb Recipes That Are Actually... The Bomb
Whether you’ve just started down the path to ketosis or you’ve been swiping left on carbs for awhile, fat bombs are a great way to get some extra energy and stay on track with the low-carb keto diet. Let’s be honest... if I was on a regular diet I would probably want to stay away from something that’s labeled a “fat bomb”, but that’s the beauty of keto- fat is no longer the enemy! In fact, it’s the opposite. Including healthy fats in your diet is a great way to feel full and still lose weight.
What is a Fat Bomb?
Fat bombs are exactly what they sound like: “small snacks or treats that are high in fat and low in carbs (so, literally a fat bomb) that you can eat as a quick breakfast, as a quick mid-afternoon snack, as a pre- or after- workout snack, or as extra fuel during your day.” They can be anything from avocado to peanut butter and oats to bacon to chocolate- there are thousands of delicious recipes that are guaranteed to boost your energy and motivate you to say caio to carbs.
3 Steps to Fat Bomb Bliss
Pair a healthy fat with some kind of flavoring (think chocolate) and an ingredient with texture (think nuts or seeds). All you need to do is mix the ingredients together, form them into a ball (a mini muffin tin also works well) and then refrigerate or freeze for several hours.
According to ketosummit.com, fat bombs should always be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container because fat turns to liquid at room temperature, and no one wants a liquidy snack (unless it’s a mimosa or a margarita).
Fat bombs are usually small (like the size of a mini muffin) so they’re easy to grab and eat in the car, in between meetings at work, or in the locker room after a workout.
