Keto Coconut-Choc Fat Bombs
These irresistibly indulgent fat bombs are the perfect midday pick me up or after dinner treat.
Simple to prepare these fat bombs require two hours total set time.
The recipe calls for coconut oil, this needs to be at room temperature and relatively soft but not melted so that it can be easily mashed.
Erythritol has been used to sweeten the recipe, however you can use your preferred sweetener of choice or omit this entirely.
Organic Erythritol by Pyure
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder by Ghirardelli
Desiccated Coconut by Edro
2 h 10 min
Step 1Ensuring the coconut oil is soft and at room temperature, add to a mixing bowl with the cream cheese, erythritol, and cocoa powder. Mash together well to combine.
Step 2Once the mixture is completely smooth, transfer to the fridge for an hour to firm up.
Step 3Remove the mixture from the fridge and tip the desiccated coconut into a shallow dish.
Step 4Divide the mixture into 10 even portions and roll into balls with your hands. Roll each ball one at a time in the coconut to coat.
Step 5Return to the fridge for a further hour to set and refrigerate until ready to serve.

I love theses. I just mixed everything up together including the coconut flakes. I also added a few sugar free chocolate chips and substituted stevia drops. Yum!

Newbie, but keto is touted to reduce sweet cravings after while, so I’m wonder why there are keto deserts. Also, erithritol isn’t awesome for your body. So I’m not sure I’m motivated enough to make the sweets. Better to have a normal sweet as a treat once a week?

Eating regular sweets will knock you out of ketosis though. You wouldn't want to have to get back into ketosis every single week.

Keto definitely reduces the sweet cravings but it doesn’t eliminate them all together. Some people use it up their fat as well.

I use them to get my fat up over my protein. I also use stevia instead of anything artificial since my body doesn't tolerate any artificial sweeteners.

After a few weeks my sweet cravings do subside. I use these fat bombs to balance my protein rather than sweet snack, sometimes I just need a bit more fat to get the ratio right. You’re right - no artificial sweetener is good for the body but a small amount ingested occasionally isn’t terribly harmful.

These are very easy, handy treats. A good (and tasty) way to work those macros numbers! I added ~ 1 tsp coconut flavored liquid stevia (on top of recipe sweetener) to add just a little bit more sweetness and gives the coconut an extra boost. Also, for convenience and ease of mixing, I soften the cream cheese in the microwave about 5 seconds or so. And I can attest that if your oil has turned to liquid it still works well. Also, for ease again, I put my mixture in the freezer ~ 1/2 hr maybe and it quickly becomes workable at room temp to make the balls by hand. And lastly, for an extra treat, I stick a (Lily's) choc chip or 2 in each treat before putting the balls back in the fridge. Yum!

I used brown Swerve as the sweetener as it was what I had on hand. Would recommend bringing the cream cheese to room temperature to aid in mixing ease. These are a great, not sweet, chocolate treat!

I modified this recipe by mixing 1 T organic cream cheese with 1 T Coconut oil and 1 t Hershey’s Simply 5, then adding 1 T desiccated coconut. I ate it right out of a small bowl with a spoon. It was delicious and only 5g carbs!

Wow! Didn’t expect that, they’re delicious and very moreish. Definite chocolate craving fix for me.

Tastes pretty nasty! Will try double or triple the Erythritol but yikes, it’s bad.

These are a complete staple for me and my incessant chocolate cravings! I also add a little almond extract 👩🍳💋

Can I use Stevia for sweetener instead? If so, how much would use? Thank you!
AgingNinjaWarrior 10 months ago
2 Tbsp Stevia works.

Will this recipe work if I use cacao powder, rather than cocoa powder?
Usernamenorcal a year ago
I used Giradelli unsweetened cacao powder and it was really good!

These are pretty good and extremely easy to make. But, be careful eating too many of them. I ate a serving a day until they were gone and I ended up with pretty bad constipation. Everyone's body is different, so it depends on whether alot of cheese and dairy normally affects you. Otherwise, they're great. I'll make them again, but now I know too be careful not to eat too many in a row.

Probably replace the cream cheese with something else dairy free. Maybe coconut cream

This says 5 servings but at the bottom says to make 10 balls. Are 2 balls one serving?

Yes. Which I like because one is never enough. Or you could half the macros and calories and only eat one. Choices are always good.
