You might be asking yourself.

What the hell is a fat bomb?

Also you might be thinking I love fat bombs.

And I need this recipe in my life right now.

And if that’s the case skip below to the recipe.

So fat bombs were first developed for the keto diet lifestyle. To get plenty of healthy fat into your diet. To satiate cravings and fill the keto dieter’s body with fuel. I have been living off of fat bombs and I’ve never felt fuller longer and more energized.

Healthy fat is so good for you. And coconut oil is one of my favorite healthy fat options, especially on a higher fat diet. Coconut oil is high in the saturated fats that help increase your healthy cholesterol {HDL} and convert the bad cholesterol {LDL} into good cholesterols. When you increase your HDL it helps promote a healthy heart and it lowers your risk of heart disease. Eat all the fats!

I developed this fat bomb recipe because, like my bread craving {hi seedy keto bread}, I have also been craving dark chocolate. So this is my low-carb dark chocolate bar version. I eat one of these fat bombs when I’m craving something sweet and I’m in chocolate heaven. The cacao nibs add an extra crunch and the salt balances the bitter and the sweet. They also provide a lucid energy boost as well.

Coincidentally this recipe coincides with Valentine’s Day. Married, single or otherwise, I have always loved this holiday. My little sister was born on Valentine’s Day – so it was an extra special day growing up. Perhaps that has something to do with it.

For the next few days she and I will be exploring Montreal {come see what we’re up to on my Instagram stories}. We spent a considerable chunk of time growing up along the St. Lawrence River. Just shy of one hundred miles south of Montreal. We visited the city frequently, and it holds a really special place in our hearts. I haven’t been back in a few years – if you have some great Montreal recommendations – please leave them for me in the comments below. Merci beaucoup!

Coconut Oil Fat Bombs with Cacao Nibs + Flake Salt

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 mins

Vegan, keto-friendly fat bombs made with coconut oil and cacao nibs. See notes below for additional add-ons.

MACROS PER SLICE: 1 gram net carbs, 16 grams of fat, 1 grams of protein

Ingredients

Directions

Spray a 12 count muffin pan with coconut oil and set aside.

Whisk together the melted coconut oil, cacao powder and stevia. Equally distribute the chocolate mixture into the muffin pan and sprinkle the cacao nibs into each division. 

Place the tray in the freezer for 5 minutes. Remove and sprinkle on more cacao nibs and salt. Return them to the freezer until frozen. Pop them out and store in the freezer until you are ready to eat. 

The natural swirl happens in the freezer! 

Recipe Notes

If desired, you can use 1 - 2 tablespoons of maple syrup in place of the stevia. This coconut and cacao nibs base creates ample room for experimenting. Sometimes I like to add in cinnamon, turmeric, rose petals, etc. Have fun with them!

    How many does this make, 6 piece or 12 piece muffin tin?

      Hi Holly – it could fit both {the 6 piece tin would yield larger portions}, but the recipe is for 12.

    Very obsessed with these! I love how easy and adaptable they look – I am constantly craving chocolate and a more nourishing option is ideal. Happy Valentines Day!

    You read my mind! My keto sister is coming this weekend, and I had no idea what to make.
