I grew up in the age of ‘fat phobia’ and was told that fat made you fat. Obviously there is great education on this subject that tells us it is the KIND of fat that makes a difference and actually that FAT is good for you. Thus, the Keto Diet Movement.
Several years ago a friend shared the BEST FAT BOMB recipe with me and today, I have fine-tuned it to make it even better- healthier and to include an anti-oxidant that will kick the butt of any other ‘chocolate’ on the market.
Ready? Here is the recipe from our friend April (and it’s a perfect time of the year to share.) The only thing I have added and upgraded on is the type of CHOCOLATE used in the original recipe. I now use BRU and highly suggest you do too.
Put this ‘mixture’ into decorative shaped tins or holiday ‘small muffin tin’ papers and you’ll SHOCK and excite everyone who tastes them. By the way, for added nutrition and a great healthy fat boost, you can even add a FAT BOMB to your morning coffee.
Peanut Butter Cup Fat Bombs
1/4 cup coconut butter, (or unsalted grass fed butter)
1/2 cup coconut oil,
1/2 cup organic creamy peanut butter or other nut butter
1/8 cup MCT oil
2 TBSP organic Bru (www.DaveandJoy.com) *
1/4 cup raw coconut flakes,
1-2 droppers of alcohol free stevia,
pink Himalayan sea salt.
If you do not have BRU you can also use a dark chocolate (unsweetened) powder or dark Cacao powder.
Melt a bit of coconut oil so it will mix well. You have to taste as you go to adjust as necessary.
Mini cupcake papers, we put a little dot of peanut butter (or nut butter) in each paper then topped with fat bomb mixture. Sprinkle a bit of the salt on top and refrigerate.
I have altered this original recipe when I don’t have coconut on hand and it is still healthy and delicious AND also even when I didn’t have nut butter. You can even alter the recipe by adding a drop or two of peppermint essential oil and have a real peppermint patty treat.
Enjoy and if you have questions email us at info@DaveandJoy.com or call 802-846-7530. P.S. Even my fat-phobic parents who were born in the 1930s and still believe fat is ‘bad’ LOVE these fat bombs. I just tell them that this is a healthy ‘chocolate snack’.
Most ingredients are available at your grocery or health food store….and you can certainly improvise. As for what we use, the BRU is only available through Tavala, www.DaveandJoy.com. A full bag that is organic cacao and will last a long time is only $29.99.
I’d love to know how your recipe turns out. For me, when I have any cravings I reach for a FAT BOMB as it helps satisfy any craving, gives me great nutrition and a healthy high anti0xidant snack. By the way did you know that FAT keeps you more satisfied than carbohydrates?
Share your pictures of your FAT BOMB creations. I’m sure they will look better than mine do….but heck, I am here for the nutrition!
