What Are Fat Bombs?
Fat bombs usually combine things like coconut oil, nuts, butter, seeds, etc. Fat bombs are widely used by people that are following a keto diet. Keto diets are high in fat, very low in carbs, and usually, contain moderate protein. Energy is provided through fat that is consumed, thus the idea of a fat bomb. Once the body is in ketosis, it will begin to burn fat instead of carbohydrates.
If you have ever heard of Bulletproof Coffee, it may be easier to understand the purpose fat bombs. Bulletproof coffee is made with butter, often grass fed. There are claims that the balance of healthy fat helps support energy. Fat bombs are a tasty way to consume these healthy fats, quickly.
How to Make Keto Cheesecake Fat Bombs
- Combine cream cheese, melted butter, coconut oil, sweetener, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Mix.
- Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Line a muffin tin with liners.
- Add the batter and freeze until hard.
How Many Fat Bombs Can You Have on Keto?
This will depend on your keto macros. If you are a calorie counter, you will have to take that into account. The great thing about these fat bombs is they don’t have much protein. Too much protein consumption can knock you out of ketosis. You should also be careful that you aren’t eating too much fat, so don’t binge on multiple bombs daily.
Do Fat Bombs Help You Lose Weight?
They can if you are really following strict keto macros. Keto is a low-carb diet that focuses on high-fat and moderate protein consumption. The purpose of Keto is to switch the body’s primary fuel source from glucose and carbs to fat and ketones, which places the body in ketosis. These fat bombs will help boost your fat consumption.
Is Cream Cheese Keto Friendly?
Cream cheese is a low carb food and perfect for keto. So naturally, I wanted to create a dessert recipe using it! I have heard a lot about Lilys Chocolate – All Natural Dark Chocolate Premium Baking Chips recently. These chocolate chips are stevia sweetened with no added sugar. They are also certified gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO project certified.
What Sweetener Do You Use for Cheesecake Fat Bombs?
I have absolutely fallen in love with Swerve Sweetener and Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener! What I love most about is that is measures cup for cup like regular sugar. You do not have to convert the amount of sugar used for each recipe.
If a recipe calls for two tablespoons of sugar, you use two tablespoons of Swerve! It is literally that easy.
Stevia is a natural sweetener that is plant-based. I have used to stevia for years and I really like it. According to the nutrition label, Lilys Chocolate – All Natural Dark Chocolate Premium Baking Chips a serving of 60 chocolate chips is equal to 1 gram of net carbs. That is pretty fantastic!
Cheesecake and peanut butter cookies are my FAVORITE desserts. For me they are unmatched. I believe I am partial to these because they aren’t overly rich and decadent. They pack the perfect amount of flavor.
I have also cooked with Granulated Sugar. If you don’t have confectioners on hand you can blend the granulated version in a blender for about 30 seconds. This will create powdered sugar. You want the sugar to be powdered in this recipe. Otherwise, you will be able to taste the granules when you eat the fat bombs!
The main ingredient in Swerve and Lakanto (monkfruit) is erythritol. Erythritol is great for lightened-up desserts because it has a zero glycemic index. This means that it does not affect blood sugar or insulin levels. Insulin increases the storage of fat in fat cells.
How Long Will Cheesecake Fat Bombs Keep?
These bites are so meal prep friendly. Add them to Ziploc bags and freeze for future use.
