First of all... WHY fat bombs?
"If you are following the keto diet you probably already know that your main source of energy should come from fat. Sometimes it can be hard to find good easy snacks that contain a very high percentage of fat. The solution however is to make “fat bombs” that you can use whenever you feel for a little snack." *1
There's no shortage of fat when you're doing a keto (Low Carb, High Fat) diet, but sometimes you need a quick, sweet snack & the fat content makes it very filling.
I've made them a few times & each time have been very pleased. They're great because I find I don't go crazy on them like other treats I've made... you really only need 1 or 2 & then you're good. So here's my recipe for Lemon Drop Fat Bombs.
-1/2 cup coconut oil
-1/2 cup coconut butter (I used Artisana's Raw Organic Coconut Butter)
-Juice & zest from one lemon
-1/2 tsp vanilla
-Stevia (or other sweetener of choice) to taste. I used 2.5 Krisda's Vanilla Stevia packets
Melt coconut oil & butter to liquid form. Mix in other ingredients. Pour into molds of choice. Freeze or refrigerate until solid. Keep in fridge or freezer until you'd like to enjoy them!
