I made these Low Carb Chocolate Coconut Fat Bombs as a variation on my other recipe. They are so good and will help you through any sugar craving while you are changing your lifestyle to become more fat adapted. They are also dairy free and can be made with honey if you want to have them fit your Paleo plan. Coconut has amazing health benefits such as improving cognitive function, strengthening the immune system and burning belly fat, so eat up!
Low Carb Chocolate Coconut Fat Bombs
Prep time: 90 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Serves 10-12 balls
1 cup coconut butter (almond butter may also work, coconut oil will not work!!)
1 cup coconut milk (full fat, canned) Note: do not use low fat from a box!!!
4 Tbsp quality cocoa powder (I like this one)
1 tsp stevia powder extract (or to your taste)
(Or 2-3 Tbsp raw honey if you don’t mind the carbs)
Optional: 3-4 drops of peppermint essential oil
1 cup coconut shreds
Place a glass bowl over a sauce pan with a few inches of water in it to create a double boiler.
Place all the ingredients except shredded coconut in a double boiler over medium heat.
Mix the ingredients while waiting for them to melt together.
When all the ingredients are well combined remove the bowl from the heat.
Place the bowl in the fridge until it is hard enough to roll into balls, about 30 minutes.
Roll the contents into one inch balls and roll them through the coconut shreds.
Place the balls on a plate and refrigerate for one hour.
Serve and enjoy.
Keep refrigerated when not serving.
