These fat bombs may look like coconut truffles but they are savoury! These bite-sized cheese fat bombs are packed with flavour from sun-dried tomatoes, herbs and olives, all rolled in parmesan cheese.

Adding freshly chopped herbs, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and olives gives them a strong Mediterranean kick - you won't even know these are fat bombs! :-) Why use fat bombs? Have a look at my post here.

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.

These sound so awesome!   It is hard to find fat bombs that are not made for people with a sweet tooth!

why not feta cheese ?

My Greek partner would ask the same question! You can add feta (or use in place of part of the cream cheese) if you like 😊

Delicious!! At first I found the amount of butter to be overpowering but I quickly got used to it 😉 In addition to eating these on their own, I also plopped some on top of my salmon dinner and it melted into a delicious sauce. And then I added it to asparagus and yum. And then I made a loaf of keto bread just so I can use it as a spread...
I clearly love this recipe. Thanks for coming up with something so wonderful!

I love that idea, almost like a cross between compound butter and cream cheese dip 😊

How many fat bombs would you use per day when trying to lose weight?

Hi Hillary, that depends on how you use them. They are high in fat and can easily add up and exceed your energy requirements. They can help with weight loss if you use them in moderation as a quick source of energy, e.g. when you don't have time to cook. Do not use fat bombs only to increase your fat intake if your goal is to lose weight.

These are tastey! Do you know the calories? Although I understand keto diet focuses on net carbs, fat and protein, my APP I use to track my food and exercise requires a calorie measurement. Please and Thanks!

Hello Debbie, calories are listed as "kcal". I hope this helps!

Is it 2 tsp of each individual herb, or is it 2 tsp total herbs?

Hi Kasey, it refers to total amount.

I love the savory fat bombs. I've  made several batches now of the Savory Salmon Fat Bombs. Love them.

Thank you Mary, glad you like them! 😊

i think rolling these in crushed pecans or other nuts would be awesome too! Going to be making these ASAP. Thanks for sharing. Jewel

Oh yes! I actually made another batch with blue cheese & crushed walnuts 😉

I love my sweet fat bombs but this was a great change of pace. Going into the rotation! Thanks!

Thank you Amy, hope you like these! 😊

Can't think of anything else than coconut, love it! 😊 So tempting to try these since they don't look savoury at all 😊

Thank you Elizabeth, hope you like them!
