Why Make Coconut Oil Keto Fat Bombs?
While everyone else on the keto block won’t stop talking about net carbs for weight loss, I’m over here screaming – eat more healthy fat! In fact, many women who leave mainstream diets for keto need to eat more in order for your body to feel safe enough to let go of stored fat.
In the case of a keto diet, more food means more healthy fats. Some of my favorite fats that help you burn fat include butter and coconut oil. This just so happens to be the fat burning combo that make up these keto peanut butter fat bombs.
While it’s true peanut butter is also present in this sweet snack, the saturated fats are the real stars of this fat burning fat bomb.
If you’ve sworn off saturated fats ever since you were warned of the undesired health effects, please understand these types of fats are required for better health. In fact, your brain needs this type of fat in order to function.
Better brain health, plus a sweet treat to curb your sweet tooth on keto? Let’s learn how to make one of my favorite coconut oil keto recipes!
Keto Coconut Oil Fat Bomb Ingredients
This simple recipe only calls for 4 ingredients: coconut oil, butter, peanut butter, and dark chocolate.
Whenever you make keto desserts using coconut oil, aim for the highest quality fats you can afford with no added sugar.
It’s especially important to choose real butter – which means you want a label that includes cream, salt, and not much else. If there’s any ingredients you can’t pronounce – it’s not real butter.
When it comes to low carb chocolate in keto dessert recipes, I prefer to use an organic dark chocolate bar instead of artificially sweetened chocolate, or unsweetened cocoa powder with sweeteners mixed in. Stick to 85% dark or higher for a keto-friendly dessert.
In fact, I don’t use any sweeteners in fat bomb recipes. While you can lose weight keeping sweeteners in your low carb plan, I find limiting sweeteners keeps keto sweet cravings at bay.
Ditching low carb sweetener whenever possible also makes sticking to a real food diet easier. Plus, using less sweeteners makes a huge difference in gut microbiome health – which in turn makes a huge difference in keeping weight off long term.

How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bombs
Start by adding the peanut butter, dark chocolate, butter and coconut oil into a saucepan. Then melt the fats together over medium heat. Use a whisk to stir the fats together on occasion as they melt.
If this is your first time making these creamy peanut butter and coconut oil treats, it’s a good idea to taste test the fat bomb batter before freezing. If they’re not sweet enough for you, then you still have time to add a keto-friendly sweetener, like monk fruit sweetener or stevia drops.
Like the idea of fat bombs without artificial sweetener, but still want a little more sweetness? Simply add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract into the coconut oil peanut butter cups mixture.
Once melted together, add the fat bomb batter into a mini cupcake pan in 1 tablespoon increments. A silicone mold also works well for most chocolate peanut butter keto fat bombs.
Freeze Peanut Butter Chocolate Fat Bombs
After the fat bomb mixture is evenly distributed in the mini cupcake pan, place the tray into the freezer until firm. This should take 20-30 minutes.
You can also allow the chocolate peanut butter fat bombs to firm up in the fridge, however, this will take closer to 2-3 hours to set.
Once firm, remove the fat bombs from the freezer and allow them to sit at room temperature for 1-2 minutes. Then use a butter knife to pop them out.
If you have a hard time popping the coconut oil fat bombs out with a butter knife, they may need to harden a bit longer in the freezer. Also, don’t allow them to sit on the counter for too long since keto desserts using coconut oil melt quickly at room temperature.
Finally, store the keto peanut butter fat bombs in the freezer or fridge in an airtight container. I find the best way to store most fat bombs is in a Ziploc bag.
Coconut Oil Keto FAQs
Ever wondered – can I eat coconut oil on a keto diet? The good news is yes, coconut oil is perfect for a keto lifestyle. In fact, coconut oil and keto should go hand-in-hand since it’s the easiest fat to digest, plus its been shown to help burn belly fat.
If you’re wondering how to use coconut oil in a keto diet, you’ve stumbled upon one of the best ways when you found these keto chocolate peanut butter fat bombs. Coconut oil in keto coffee is another great way to sneak in more of this amazing fat.
(MCT oil also works well since it contains the same medium-chain triglycerides as coconut oil).
You can get the belly fat burning effects associated with coconut oil with 1-3 tablespoons per day. Of course, how much coconut oil you eat each day depends on what else you eat, as well as your individual macros.
Best Keto Fat Bombs for Weight Loss
Some of my favorite keto fat bombs for weight loss are those that are made from coconut oil. Since butter is another great way to sneak in more saturated fats, let’s not leave that out of the conversation.

Some of my favorite coconut butter keto fat bombs include:
- Strawberry Creams – a two ingredient sweetener-free, dairy-free fat bomb
