Mint Chocolate Chip Keto Fat Bombs

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.

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.

  1. Absolutely love love love the new lay out!! And these photos. And the recipe. Can’t wait to get in the kitchen and try one (or all three) out!!

  2. Hej madbandit ? Uden dig og alle dine inspirerende indlæg og gode råd om LCHF så havde jeg nok midstet pusten undervejs så tak❤️ Jeg har været i gang i ca 2 måneder og mit mål var ketose. om jeg er i denne “tilstand må være usagt, men da jeg taber mig 1kg om ugen uden at være ekstrem overvægtig og at jeg kører snorlige med principperne for striks LCHF sååååå tænker jeg at jeg er der. Det vildeste jeg oplever med træning er at jeg på helt tom mave kl 5.30 kan løbe uden at mærke ubehag og dertil skal det siges, at jeg ikke spiser før kl 11.30 OGSÅ UDEN UBEHAG. Jeg oplever LCHF som en livsstils ændring og er glad for det. Dog skal det siges at jeg stadig mangler brød og alle de andre “gode ting som jeg spiste før. Tænker at jeg snart vil begive mig ud i lchfs lækkerier og brød for at smage LIDT på de gode ting? Træning og LCHF er fint for mig. Vh Christina

  3. Dear Elana,

    I have been following your blog for years. Your simple, nutritious recipes have helped me survive college and now graduate school. Have you ever made Borsht by any chance? My parents are Russian and as a child, I loved having beetroot soup with a generous dollop of sour cream!

    xx Stephanie

    • Stephanie, thanks for your darling comment! I will add Borsht to my list of recipe requests. I’m so happy to hear that my simple, nutritious recipes are helping to get you through school :-)

  4. I am wondering if you could substitute erythritol in this recipe? If so, would it be the same ratios? I’m asking because stevia has an aftertaste that I don’t care for.

  5. I would love to make these, they look amazing, but I am trying to avoid sugar and the chocolate chips contain cane sugar. Does anyone make sugar free chips to substitute?

  6. I just made these and they taste amazing! I love mint and chocolate together! These truffles have a great texture and mouthfeel and are super-rich and super-satisfying for a sweet craving.

  7. Yum these look delicious I am definitely making these tonight. Just need to buy a few ingredients which I have been meaning to get for a ages now but have been too lazy!

  8. I just made these tonight and they were delicious. They really tasted like chocolate to me — they have the creaminess and richness of chocolate. Before freezing them, they were like chocolate chip cookie dough. I’m so happy to have a “treat” that is really satisfying and grain-free and sugar-free.

    I actually used a few drops of stevia with no other sweetener in my truffles, and they turned out delicious. I also used almond butter, because it’s what I had. I also used Baker’s unsweetened chocolate cut into little slivers to mix in.
