|Cheesy Pesto Fat Bombs

This 5-minute high-fat dip is perfect for keto snacking and I made a new video for you! You can use it as dip with fresh cucumber slices - or roll it into balls and cover in grated Parmesan or crisped up bacon pieces. If you can't eat dairy, try my Avocado & Egg Fat Bombs instead.

You can find more fat bombs in my Sweet & Savory Fat Bombs cookbook. If you like my book, please, don't forget to leave a review on Amazon - thank you for your support!

Im a first timer to keto....What is the portion amount for this snack?


I listed 2 heaping tbsp/ 1 ½ oz/ 40 g + vegetables to eat it with but it's up to you, even double the amount would be fine.


Looks good, have to try it. I lost 11 pounds, now I'm on hold, why?do I have to tweak something?  Janet thank


Hi Janet, this post may help:


i would also instruct ppl to put their portion on a plate as the moisture from the veggies will get in the dip. keeps the dip undiluted and thick for next time.


Thank you Hélène, yes, I agree!
