Keto Chocolate Coconut Fat BombsShareFollow us 261.1k

Chocolate Coconut Candies, aka "fat bombs", are amazingly easy and delicious! They are made from coconut oil and just a few more ingredients. These candies are great for the fat fast and also as a pre-workout snack.

You may be following TKD (Targeted Ketogenic Diet), where some extra carbs are allowed. However, probably most of those on a low-carb diet try to avoid carbs completely. While these candies have almost no carbs, they have similar effects as carbohydrate-based snacks: coconut oil, which is the main ingredient, provides a quick source of energy!

Ingredients (makes 30 fat bombs)


  1. Place the extra virgin coconut oil into a small bowl and melt in a microwave oven on low heat for just about a minute. Add raw cocoa powder, vanilla extract, Erythritol and stevia.

  2. Erythritol doesn't dissolve easily unless heated up. For a smoother texture you can blend it until powdered.
    Note: Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that naturally occurs in fruits, vegetables and fermented foods. It's very low in Net Carbs and has a slight cooling effect.
  3. Mix everything well, make sure there are no clumps.

  4. Spoon the chocolate mixture into the silicone mold to about 1/3. I used these heart-shaped ice silicone molds but you can use any other (the ones I used take 1 1/2 tablespoons each). Place the molds in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes or until the chocolate solidyfies.

  5. When the chocolate mixture solidifies, add 1/2 a teaspoon of home-made coconut & pecan butter into the mold. The best results are achieved when the butter is chilled.

  6. Top with the remaining chocolate mixture and place back in the fridge for at least 30-60 minutes or until firm.

  7. When done, keep refrigerated. Coconut oil gets very soft at room temperature. Now, whenever you get sugar cravings or before you go to gym, pop them out of the molds and enjoy!!!
    Note: You may end up making more than 30 candies. This depends on the size of moulds used.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

too good, defeats the purpose b/c eat a dozen per "serving" ;)

Oh no! 🤣

I am looking for suggestions on foods that can be used for long distance running (4+ hours) I am new to keto (1 month) and an endurance runner just starting a new training regimine for a marathon in November.

Hi Brenda, I'm afraid these would melt. As for nutrition, have a look at this post: Ketogenic Nutrition and Exercise: Carbs (it mentions a good resource for marathon runners).

My wife and I love these. They taste wonderful and are incredibly quick and easy to make, but we were wondering what serving size the stated nutritional values are based on. Thanks.

Thank you for your kind words! The nutrition facts are "per candy" (recipe makes 30 candies).

Hi, I'm a vegetarian so don't have much choice for keto, I tried the chocolate keto smoothie from your app but I don't really like the taste, can you come up with more vegetarian meals and snacks please? Preferably on the go meals. I'll buy the book or app straight away

Hi Ricky, there are almost 250 vegetarian recipes on my blog - have a look 😊 Vegetarian

Can I substitue Swerve for the Erythritol?

Yes you can. Swerve is slightly sweeter than Erythritol, so you may want to try less and add more if needed.

Hi guys. I'm dying to make these. Does anyone know what would happen if I only  use erythrol as a sweetener? Meaning, without Stevia? Is the only difference That it would come out less sweet?

You can definitely do that. Sweeteners are always "to taste" so you may end up using just the amount listed, or more (or less). Taste it before pouring in the molds and add more if needed 😊

Just made these with cacao nibs. Awesome! I also used 1/4 cup hot coffee to smooth the sweeteners so it's Kirk chocolate coffee candies!

Sounds delicious!! 😊

do you have to use sweetener i find they make me feel sick...I eat 85% lindt could I just melt that and use peanut butter instead? I'm just wondering if you think that would be way too high in carbs? are peanuts and peanut butter ok on a low carb diet?

Yes, 85% dark chocolate from Lindt is a great option and you won't need to use any sweetener! Yes, you can use peanut butter if you can tolerate legumes - I just avoid it with the paleo / primal approach.

Thanks for the update looking forward to these treats 😊

What is the weight of each candy piece that you make?

Hi Dan, I haven't weighed them but I'd say an oz / 30 grams per piece 😊

How many is a serving?? Just 1?

Hi Shawna, yes, nutrition facts are per one piece but you can have 2-3 a day depending on your macros. Hope this helps!

Oh one other question, why both Erythritol and Stevia drops?  The Erythritol makes the chocolate gritty, even after I tried to blend it then dissolve it in coconut oil.  Would something not work if only Stevia liquid were used?  Thanks.

You can use just stevia if you prefer that. The reason why I use both is to mask the aftertaste of stevia. If you use powdered erythritol and dissolve it in warm coconut oil, it should work.

I made these and want to put the total calories, carbs, fat, and protein for one bomb into my MyFitnessPal recipes but cannot quite figure out the total of the chocolate plus the coconut/pecan butter center.  Anyone do this already?

Hi Ce, the nutrition facts as listed in this recipe are for both the chocolate and the nut butter centre. Is that what you had in mind?

Hello! How many calories is in one serving? I couldnt find that in your nutrition fact listed.

Hi Mandie, you can find calories under "energy" in the nutrition table.

Stumbled upon this recipe and it looks great! I do have a question though....Can I substitute Stevia liquid for just Stevia packets? I live in a small town and I don't even think they would carry the liquid. Any help or other suggestions are appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hi Marissa, sure! I'm not sure how much to use though, maybe 1/4 tsp? I'm not sure which product you want to use so it may even be more (or less).

How much of the chocolate should be poured into your silicone tray to make sure you have the correct serving size. Thanks

Hi Alisha, I've made these with about 2 tablespoons per piece altogether.

Does the stevia liquid mix in well with the butter? since it's it water based, I am worried that it will separate ...

What I did was put the Stevia in the chocolate and not the butter, worked great.

Love these! Making them at least once a week and keep them in the fridge 😊

I mixed equal parts organic peanut butter and almond meal for the filling, and melted 85% Dark chocolate with coconut oil. Froze in tiny cupcake papers. They look like peanut butter cups, taste like dark chocolate Almond Joys, and are amazing little pick-me-ups! They do have 2.2g net carbs, and also have 2.2g of protein. Thank you for the inspiration to make treats, too!!

Thank you Jen, that sounds delicious!
Big thanks to all of you - I just noticed all the comments, I guess I have to fix my notifications so I can reply without a delay 😊

Great fat bombs! I make them when I need to up my fat intake on keto and tried them with plain coconut butter, they were delish!

I used peanut butter instead - OMG they are fabulous! I keep them in fridge and have one or two before working out. Coconut oil is the best!

I just did these yesterday, one word: HEAVEN!! I'm allergic to peanuts and this is the best nut butterI tried.
