Hi, friends! Just dropping in with a quick Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate fat bomb recipe! And I mean “quick” as in yes, this is going to to be a brief post… and also yes, this recipe takes less than 5 minutes to make. Speedy Gonzales over here.
Summer’s been a bit of a whirlwind. A mostly good whirlwind, but one that’s kept me bouncing often from one place to the next. With that in mind, I’ve tried to come up with some nutritious (and tasty) snacks to sustain my energy between work and activities.
The deeper I’ve gotten into my career as a health coach, the more and more I recognize that not one way of eating works for everyone. Maybe planning ahead is your thing. Maybe it’s not. Perhaps you like to adhere to specific food lifestyle, i.e. Keto, Paleo, Vegan, etc, etc. And perhaps subscribing to a particular way of eating isn’t for you at all!
Guess what? IT’S OKAY if we’re all different!
That being said, if you’re new here, I’m a big believer that MY body operates best when I consume mostly healthy fats, quality sourced proteins, lots of veggies, and very minimal sugar or carbs. It’s how I keep my autoimmune disorder in check and how I physically feel best.

Fat bombs are basically just that… a high dosage of fat in a small bite size snack. For those that adhere to a Ketogenic way of eating, fat bombs are the perfect way to refuel while still staying away from sugary or carb laden treats.
I have a number of favorite recipes… like these:
This summer, I’ve been really digging some Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip fat bombs. Like really, really.
I know what you’re probs thinking… doesn’t peanut butter AND chocolate have lots of sugar? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose?
Yes, if you use the wrong stuff. But I’ve got the goods over here to show you how to make these keto-licious. It’s all about getting all natural peanut butter that contains just peanuts and using dark cacao chips. Cacao is unprocessed chocolate. It’s naturally very dark and not sweet. I sweeten pretty much all my recipes with Monkfruit sugar. (What’s Monkfruit sugar? Read here.) In this case, using Golden Monkfruit sugar. Cacao is also full of antioxidants, so that’s big nutrition plus too.
1/2 cup of all natural, unsweetened peanut butter (you can purchase here)
3 tablespoons of golden monkfruit sugar (you can purchase here)
3-4 tablespoons of coconut flour, depending how thick you prefer (you can purchase here)
dash of organic vanilla extract (you can purchase here)
pinch of pink himalayan salt (you can purchase here)
2 tablespoons of 85% cacao chips (you can purchase here)
Mix everything in a bowl. Make ball shapes with the mix, about the size of a small bouncy ball (like how profesh I am in the kitchen?). Place on a plate in the freezer until hard. Usually takes about 10-15 minutes. Store in freezer.
That’s it! Seriously, so good.
To nutritious snacks, summer fun, and creating a #LifeInColor,
