Almond Fat Bombs
If you’re looking for something to boost your energy, speed up your metabolism and curb your appetite, then these are the bomb!
I keep these in the freezer and my boys know they can help themselves to one or two a day. Not only are they getting a small afternoon ‘treat’, but they are also getting essential good fats into their diet.
Fat Bombs are traditionally made up of a healthy fat such as coconut oil or butter, a nut butter such as almond butter or peanut butter plus a little bit of sweetener.
These Fat Bombs do have a little bit of banana and I use honey as my choice of sweetener, but if you’re following a strict keto / Banting diet you can leave out the banana and swop out the honey for liquid stevia or your choice of low carb sweetener.
½ cup organic coconut oil
2½ tablespoons natural almond butter
2 teaspoons raw honey
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Slightly warm your coconut oil if solid.
Place melted coconut oil and the rest of the ingredients into a food processor.
Blend until smooth.
Pour into your preference of mould or ice-cube tray.
Place in the freezer overnight.
Pop them out when set and store in a sealed container in the freezer.
