Wanna hear the difference between getting amazing results on a ketogenic diet vs. weight loss that barely exists?
As in getting a healthy dose of the right fats into your keto diet to actually trigger ketosis. Not only do you need to eat enough fat for your body to feel safe enough to let go of stored body fat, but you also need the right kinds of fats. Some of my favorites include grass-fed butter, coconut oil, and the healthy saturated fats found in grass-fed meats.
While everyone else on the keto block won’t stop talking about net carbs for weight loss or obsessing about the carb count in everything they put in their mouth, I’m over here screaming – eat more healthy fat bombs!
Right, because a great way to get more good fats into a keto diet is with a great snack like keto fat bombs! These keto peanut butter fat bombs were actually the very first fat bomb I added to my keto lifestyle that helped me lose more than 100 pounds.
The good thing about an easy fat bomb recipe like this is not only will it help you follow keto the right way for faster weight loss, but this sweet treat pulls double duty since it also satisfies your sweet tooth. Low carb peanut butter fat bombs are a delicious way to have your peanut butter and eat it too 😉
Let’s get to how to make these chocolate peanut butter fat bombs so you can start dropping body fat faster with more tasty treats.
First thing, add the peanut butter, dark chocolate, butter and coconut oil to a saucepan and begin melting it over medium heat.
When it comes to a fat bombs recipe, it’s up to you whether you use creamy peanut butter or a crunchy peanut butter. Both taste delicious in these keto chocolate peanut butter bombs. I prefer to use an organic peanut butter that’s low in added sugar. Don’t confuse natural peanut butter with organic since these have two different meanings.
I like to use dark chocolate in my keto recipes that’s at least 85% or higher. When I first began a keto lifestyle, I used cocoa powder in fat bomb recipes. While this is perfectly fine, I switched over to dark chocolate melted down since I no longer use keto friendly sweeteners.
Just because I no longer use sweeteners, that’s not me saying you shouldn’t use sweeteners. In fact, if this is your first time making fat bombs, you may need to add a little bit of extra sweetness if that’s what it takes to get your fat intake up. The benefits of fat bombs are plentiful, so I’m willing to make this small concession if that’s what you need to do.
A lot of people can still lose weight on a low-carb diet while keeping carb intake low with a keto friendly sugar substitute. If you’re unsure of which low carb sweetener to use, check out my free Keto Sweetener Guide. I dive into my favorite sweeteners like stevia drops and Lakanto Monkfruit sweetener. I also let you know how to convert these for your easy keto recipes.
Even though I made it to my initial goal weight while eating all of the delicious keto sweetened foods, I found that too many keto sweet treats resulted in more sugar cravings and higher blood sugar. Sweeteners also made it harder for me to maintain my weight on a high fat diet. You can read all of the reasons I quit sweeteners for good here.
I didn’t quit all sweeteners all at once though. I weaned myself off of sweeteners by adding only a small amount to my delicious fat bombs. The next time I made a batch of homemade peanut butter cups, I added less sweeteners until I no longer needed any extra sweetness.
Even though I’m kind of endorsing sweeteners and kind of telling you to quit them for good, I’m definitely saying to stay away from sugar free chocolate chips when sweet cravings strike. Most sugar-free chocolate bars or chocolate chips use sugar alcohols, which many people aren’t able to digest.
When your body can’t digest your favorite keto snack, wanna know what happens?
It gets stored in your fat cells until the coast is clear. If you keep loading up on foods your body isn’t able to digest, the coast is never clear. One of the best ways to keep off the weight you lose is by eating the foods your body understands how to digest.
Let’s get back to the how to’s of this delicious chocolate and peanut butter recipe. While you’re melting together all of the healthy fats to form the peanut butter mixture, be sure to stir occasionally with a whisk. Once everything is melted together, spoon the peanut butter chocolate deliciousness into a mini muffin tin in one tablespoon increments.
Next, place the mini muffin tray into the freezer until firm, which typically takes 20-30 minutes. If you don’t have room in your freezer to store these, you can let them firm up in the fridge. This will take closer to 2-3 hours to set.
Once firm, remove the fat bombs from the mini muffin tins with a butter knife. If you’re having trouble popping them out, then you may need to allow them to set a little longer.
Be sure to store these in a Ziploc bag or other airtight container in the fridge or freezer. Do not allow them to sit out at room temperature since they melt quickly.
If these sound delicious but peanut butter is your favorite, feel free to use any of the other nut butters you may have on hand. My favorite nut butter is almond butter since it adds a little extra sweetness to my keto recipes. These dark chocolate almond butter cups are so similar to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, but made with almond butter instead.
If peanut butter is totally your jam, then I have even more delicious ways for you to sneak in extra fat. Check out these keto peanut butter bars, dark chocolate peanut butter cups, or these two ingredient peanut butter cookies.
