Easy Fat Bombs Recipe the Perfect Sugar-Free Dessert
Low-carb Mint Chip Fat Bombs are a fantastic keto snack or dessert. I love eating them right after one of my easy workouts. I exercise for an hour a day by walking, weight lifting, or doing Pilates or yoga. Although not intensive, I have found this type of exercise very helpful in reducing inflammation. And this low-carb high-fat (LCHF) dessert is perfect for refueling after light or intense workouts.
Reducing Inflammation with a Keto Diet
Packed with healthy coconut oil and high-fat macadamia nut butter, these truffles are part of the Keto Diet which is great at reducing inflammation. I love eating keto desserts like these Mint Chip Fat Bombs that are packed with coconut oil. Why? Because coconut oil contains medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s) that are thought to boost your metabolism and reduce inflammation in your brain. Now that’s a win-win!
- Combine coconut oil, coconut butter, and macadamia nut butter in a saucepan
- Stir mixture over very low heat until melted
- Stir in stevia, mint, and salt
- Refrigerate for 20 minutes
- Stir in chocolate
- Refrigerate for 5 minutes until mixture is firm
- Use a 1.5 teaspoon ice cream scoop to transfer mixture into mini muffin liners
- Refrigerate and serve chilled
Sugar-Free Dessert Recipe
I used to make these with a teaspoon of honey. That was part of an original recipe created by Diane Sanfillipo, that these Fat Bombs are based upon. If you are accustomed to eating sweets, you will want to use a bit of honey. Since going on a low-carb high-fat keto (LCHF) diet, I have been making them with no sweetener other than stevia.
