41 min

  • Step 1

    Peel and pit a ripe avocado. Roughly chop and add to a mixing bowl with the cream cheese, 1/3 cup butter (softened to room temperature), the lemon juice, zest, 1 tablespoon of finely chopped chives, salt and pepper. Mash the mixture together with a fork until well combined and semi smooth. Transfer to a fridge for 30 minutes to firm up.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Whilst the mixture is firming, heat the oil in a skillet over a low/medium heat. Add the bacon and cook through until crisp and golden on both sides. Set aside to cool them crumble.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Remove the avocado mixture from the fridge and roll into 10 even balls.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Sprinkle the crumbled bacon over the top of the fat bombs, pressing into the top ever so slightly to hold. Store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
    Step 4

        These were good but removed the butter added 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise and sprinkled some dill weed to add flavour with the lemon and it was tasty and not as heavy once the butter was removed. Thank you for sharing

              I made these but added the bacon fat to the mix to compensate for not being able to use lemon sure to an allergy. They were nice but I might add a bit more cream cheese next time

                I wanted to like these but they just taste so……well fatty in not a good way. When I have forced them down because I cant keep up with the fat requirement on Keto, they actually make me feel sick to my stomach.

                  I think if you are under on your fat macro, Keto makes up for it by burning our own fat.

                What’s the serving size for these fat bombs I made some but I’m having to bounce off the serving size can someone please tell me

                  @mwhk66 That was kind of rude. If you assumed they couldn’t read (you asked) and you CAN read; then help out and inform them of the serving size. Don’t be an jerk,

                  The taste is phenomenal. But I am not sure the macros are correct.

                    What do you think they should be? I’ve noticed that some cream cheese has varying carb and fat macro depending on brand

                  I've tried these twice and they are too greasy. I get they are supposed to be high fat but the butter is too much. Flavor is ok I feel like extra citrus or another protein would help.

                    How well do these store in the fridge? Can they freeze?

                      Good flavor, but the texture for me makes it hard to eat without a chip to dip it in.

                        Does this mean you use 1 whole avocado for 2 fat bombs?

                          5 servings, 2 fat bombs each serving

                          Remove the avocado mixture from the fridge and roll into 10 even balls. Unfortunately the writer didn't write the servings per recipe but showed a photo of 10 balls for the recipe.

                          I’d like a definitive respond for this question. 1 avocado for the entire recipe or 1 per serving. The word ‘each’ in the recipe is throwing me off.

                          The way I read it is 1 avocado for the whole recipe, which results in 10 fat bombs making 5 servings of 2 fat bombs per serving.
