Full of healthy fats, this easy Mint Chip Fat Bombs recipe has only 7 ingredients! These low-carb fat bombs are incredibly simple to throw together and perfect for holidays like Christmas and Valentine's day when the sugar is flowing and you want to avoid it by eating something high-fat, healthy, and delicious. They're so good though that we eat them all year long!
All you need to make this easy sugar-free dessert recipe is coconut oil, coconut butter, macadamia butter, peppermint, dark chocolate, stevia, and salt. Throw these ingredients together and you're on your way to the type of high-fat healthy eating that will keep your motor running all day.
Low-carb Mint Chip Fat Bombs are a fantastic keto snack. 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.
Packed with healthy coconut oil and high-fat macadamia nut butter, these fat bombs are part of the Keto Diet which is great at reducing inflammation. I love eating keto desserts like this that are packed with coconut oil. Why? Because coconut oil contains medium chain triglycerides (MCT's) that boost your metabolism and reduce inflammation in your brain. Now that's a win-win!
If you are accustomed to eating sweets, you will want to use a bit of honey in this as it may not be sweet enough for you. I based this recipe on one by Diane Sanfillipo that contains a high-glycemic sweetener, but I eliminated it since I'm on a low-carb, high-fat keto (LCHF) diet. The recipe I've created here has no sweetener other than stevia, a very healthy keto sweetener that is widely used in low-carb diets.

In addition to a fabulous low-carb recipe, Keto Mint Chip Fat Bombs are a great dairy-free dessert. If you adore the combination of chocolate and mint like I do, you'll want to check out these easy low-carb chocolate mint recipes!
