I created this easy Mint Chocolate Chip Keto Fat Bombs recipe a decade ago when the term fat bomb didn’t exist, and being in ketosis wasn’t such a big deal.
Back then, the Keto Diet was practically unheard of unless you were receiving it as a treatment for pediatric epilepsy at Johns Hopkins.
What Are Keto Fat Bombs?
So let’s get started. First, what are keto fat bombs? Fat bombs are small bite-sized snacks made of fatty foods that help you burn fat for fuel and stay in ketosis.
This recipe for ketogenic fat bombs is full of healthy fat and has seven ingredients total –coconut oil, coconut butter, macadamia butter, peppermint, dark chocolate, stevia, and salt.
Why Eat Keto Fat Bombs
We love Mint Chocolate Chip Keto Fat Bombs because they’re so tasty. These no-bake fat bombs fill us with fat, rather than carbs which turn into glucose. Check out Intermittent Fasting for Beginners to understand the benefits of burning fat for fuel, and learn how the Keto Diet fools your body into thinking it’s fasting.
Mint Chocolate Chip Keto Fat Bombs
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 3 tablespoons coconut butter or coconut manna, cream concentrate
- 2 tablespoons macadamia butter
- 5 drops vanilla stevia
- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract

- 1 tablespoon chocolate chips
- 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

Are Fat Bombs Vegan?
I’m often asked, “are fat bombs vegan?” That can go either way. This is a keto vegan fat bomb recipe since they’re made of coconut oil and nut butter, rather than the usual ghee or butter. My plant-based ingredients are perfect for vegan keto fat bombs, which in turn are dairy-free keto fat bombs.

Keto Fat Bombs Using Stevia
If you’re looking for keto fat bombs using stevia this is the recipe for you! Most keto fat bomb recipes use erythritol, a corn-based sugar substitute that I cannot digest –for more on that see What’s the Best Sweetener for the Keto Diet. I based this Mint Chocolate Chip Keto Fat Bombs recipe on one by Diane Sanfillipo, removing the sweetener and making other changes.
Keto Fat Bombs No Chocolate
If you’re looking for a keto fat bombs recipe with no chocolate, go ahead and make these without the chocolate chips. You’ll have a wonderful mint fat bomb.

This post is an oldie but goodie from the archives. I first published this Mint Chip Keto Fat Bombs recipe in 2012.
Yum!!!! These are SO good. I have to confess I doubled the stevia but I’m a stevia addict. :)
Jules, so great to see your comment here. Sending you so much love :-)
Can almond butter be used in place of macadamia nut butter?
Abigail, I haven’t tried that so not sure :-)
Sam Walter says
Thanks! Another sweet dish recipe. Can I use fresh camel milk in this dish?
Sam, I haven’t tried camel milk ever so not sure :-)
Thanks for the inspiration! I can’t get healthy chocolate chips here, so I used cacao nibs instead. Delicious!
Deidre, thanks for letting me know these are delicious!
Elana’s pantry is the BEST BLOG in the subject of keto diet, I read it practically every day.
Kajetan, thanks so much for your kind words!
I cannot eat coconut is there another ingredient i can use?
Martha, I haven’t tried that so not sure :-)
I do not like stevia. What would be the conversion rate if I want to use monkfruit sweetener instead?
Julie, I haven’t tried that so not sure :-)
“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…“. First, for those of you that have adopted keto for health reasons and your journey is long not a quick stop, you’ll be glad to find a recipe that tastes different from the standard fat bombs out there. Yes, you may question the butters and mint mixed together, as I did years ago, but trust Elana, you’ll be so glad to have a new flavor added into your keto day. Two, have you done a quick search of fat bomb recipes only to find unhealthy and untested ingredients? I confidently make this recipe and know I’m filling my body with true nourishment. Three, go ahead and buy the coconut butter and the rest, you will make this recipe again and again, they will not go to waste. Kudos to you, Elana! Thank you again for a great recipe!
Jill, you are so incredibly sweet, your comment made me smile! So glad you are enjoying this fat bomb recipe :-)
What is coconut manna? I have just stated hearing about it but I don’t know what it is.
Micki, if you click the link in the ingredients portion of the recipe that says “coconut manna” you will be taken to the exact product I use, along with a description of it :-)
