Dark Chocolate & Nut Fat Bombs

|Dark Chocolate & Nut Fat Bombs

Today I'd like to share my first ever recipe video - I won't lie, it was a lot of work! Making videos is a new experience and there is definitely a learning curve. Luckily, with the help of my very talented friend Gwyn, I managed to create my first recipe video - I hope you like it! :-)

What are Fat Bombs?

Fat bombs are bite-size high-fat, low-carb treats. Whether you follow a fat fast or are craving sweets, fat bombs are the perfect keto option. Apart from sweet fat bombs, there are plenty savoury options on my blog and my new book.

Ingredients (makes 16 fat bombs):

In this recipe, I used dark chocolate because it's low in sugar. If you prefer to use unsweetened chocolate, remember to add extra sweetener.

Instructions:

  1. For this recipe, I used my Macadamia & Brazil Butter. You can use any nut butter such as Coconut & Pecan Butter, Coconut Butter or Almond & Cashew Butter. |Dark Chocolate & Nut Fat Bombs
  2. Melt the dark chocolate and cacao butter in a double boiler or a glass bowl on top of a small saucepan filled with a cup of water over a medium heat. Once completely melted, turn off the heat. |Dark Chocolate & Nut Fat Bombs
  3. Add the vanilla powder, powdered Erythritol and macadamia butter and mix until well combined. Add the butter and mix again. Pour 2 tablespoons of the chocolate mixture into the mini muffin forms or an ice cube tray. |Dark Chocolate & Nut Fat Bombs
  4. Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and let it solidify. Keep refrigerated for up to a week or freeze for up to 3 months. |Dark Chocolate & Nut Fat Bombs

Hi! I'm so excited for this recipe. But I wanted to know is the Erythritol necessary? I'm trying to avoid sugars of any kind as much as I can.

Hi Ambar, you can skip the sweetener, especially if you use regular 85% chocolate. If you use unsweetened chocolate, it may be too bitter but it really depends on your palate Smile

These are the best and so easy to make, I've made them a fair few times, the trouble is...  they're just too irresistible and I can quite easily overeat on my daily macros. I've had to adjust my spreadsheets to incorporate these into my daily meal plans and stick to what I've allotted myself to each day, which is hard going as it's just to hard to resist eating more and more.
I've tried to change the recipe a few times but the original is the best.
What did work well was adding some soaked macadamia nuts into the mix and some D-Ribose and eating pre-workout.
Thank you Martina.

Sounds great, thank you! Smile

Nearly all things calling for chocolate, get 1 teaspoon of cinnamon from me. Love it! I'll be making this over the weekend. Smile

I agree! Hope you like them! Smile

What do you mean by 10-20 liquid stevia?? What are the units? Drops?

Reply

Yes, that's drops, thanks for noticing Smile

Reply

I figured out my liquid stevia ratio (about 2tsp per batch) and added a handful of shaved coconut and these taste awesome, less decedent and more desserty.

Reply

Coconut sounds like a great addition! Thanks for the tips! Smile

Made these for Valentines Day

It was hard not to sneak a taste here and there making them!!!

Awesome! Smile

Hello,
I'm very confused. The blog says the recipe makes 16. The video shows 12 being made. I only got 11, filling each cup with 2 Tbsp. (spoon not completely empty each time). How do we all figure out how many carbs, fat and protein in each bomb? I guess I'm going to multiply each number above by 16 (or should I use 12, since that's what the video shows) and then divide by the number of bombs (11 in my case).

Reply

Hi Suzanne, the video only shows 12 because they wouldn't fit without squeezing them too much (because I have the bowl in the top right corner). There are 16 fat bombs. If you end up with less, just adjust the nutrition data as you suggested above. I hope this helps.

I appreciate the reply, Martina. Thank you. I watched the video again and took note of the non-empty bowl. Smile

Martina,
Help!! S.O.S. I just made these (they are in the fridge, cooling) and I only got 11 mini muffin cups fills and I had no more than 2 Tbsp. per cup (probably more like 1 ½ tbsp., as you stated in the comment above). All of my measurements were accurate, too. How could I be so off with my result? I guess I will have to multiply the fat, carbs and protein by 16 and then divide by 11, to get an accurate gram count in each of my bombs, right?

Hi Suzanne, see my comment below Smile

Hi Martina,
I made these tonight exactly per your directions, and I was very careful to measure everything out on a kitchen scale to the ounce measurements you had listed. While they taste wonderful (thank you!), I ended up with exactly 20 mini cups instead of your stated 16. And I know directions said to put 2 tablespoons in each mini cup, but 1 tablespoon filled up the mini cups nearly all the way. Why on earth would that have been? Help? Thank you!

Reply

Hi Kerry, was that maybe slightly different size of the cups? When I fill them up, there may be some chocolate left in the measuring spoon (it's quite thick) so it may in fact be ~ 1 1/2 tablespoons per mini cup. I just used the measuring spoon twice for each one. I'm glad you liked them! Smile

Reply

Loved these. I only got 16 from the recipe but I was short on 85% Green & Black chocolate and added in Ghiradelli unsweetened, estimated amt. I put just a touch of SF mini chips on top and half A chopped pecan. So dang good! Very satisfying!

Reply

Thank you Frankie! I'm glad you liked them! This recipe actually makes 16 servings Smile

Reply

Nope. I followed the recipe as written. I probably should just use more stevia.

Reply

Or you can add some cocoa powder (a tablespoon or two) + additional sweetener.

Reply

I made these tonight and I think I did it wrong. I couldn't find the powdered alcohol sugar so I used extra stevia. But even with that they taste more like cocoa and nut butter. Help!!!!

Reply

Did you maybe use more nut butter than listed? Mine tasted like chocolate & nut ganache Smile

Reply

Hello Martina,
I have your Keto in 28 book and there is a few recipes requesting (egg white protein powder) where can I find this or is their a replacement , I'm in Quebec Canada and no where I could find it, thank you for your replay

Reply

Hi Rosa, thank you for ordering my book. You can use whey protein powder too (Jay Robb has both and can be purchased on Amazon). I hope this helps!

Reply

Amazing! I made these tonight....they taste amazing- I tasted the spoon! Thank you Martina! Should help my mid afternoon cravings!

Reply

Thank you Jo, hope they do Smile

Just made these and recipe was so easy and results are excellent.  Only had peanut butter in the fridge so used that because I didn't want to wait until tomorrow to make them. Thanks for the great recipe.

Reply

Thank you Colleen!

Made a batch last night with normal butter and peanut butter.
Tried this morning and they are very nice! Our first chocolate treat since Boxing Day Laughing
Thank you for the recipe, quick and easy to make.

Reply

Awesome! Thank you for the lovely feedback! Smile

Yummy looking recipe, I think it would be very rich tasting.
I have a question though and I think I've seen this in other recipes of yours. Why are you using the term "double broiler" instead of "double boiler"?

Reply

Thank you! Do I? I'll fix that Smile It's a copy & paste error so I kept using the same text.

Reply

Love it. Congratulations. Hope to see more of your recipes in Video.
What chocolate do you buy? Thanks

Reply

Thank you! I like Lindt (85 or 90%) or Green & Black's 85%.

Reply

Great video.
I will be trying it once have all the ingredients Smile

Reply

Thank you! Smile

What is cacao butter, and where can I get it it?? Also can you use just one butter or do you have to mix two different butters together thank you

Reply

Hi Valorie, cacao butter is fat extracted from cacao beans and it's the main ingredient in quality chocolate bars. You can use coconut oil instead - or just more regular butter.

Reply

Cacao butter will keep the chocolate more solid as well. Dairy butter or coconut oil will result in softer chocolates. Cacao worth the effort and the money

sweeeeet!  tx to ALL for comments, suggestions and raise for this recipe!! can't wait to try it - TOMORROW!!!  Smile

Reply

These are one of my favorites!!  Buying the book tonight. Smile  I need to start tracking macros so I love how you break this down.  Do you by chance know the calorie count for each of these?

Reply

Thank you Ian, I really appreciate that! It's 118 calories per piece (listed as kcal).
