These Paleo and Keto Fat Bomb Coconut Brownies are made with a lot of awesome ingredients that support low carb dieters. The awesome people over at Keto the Great sent me these cool products to play around with so I made these scrumptious brownies for this sponsored post.
The main product that stands out for me is MCT oil powder from a Keto the Great which is made from coconut oil. I like it because it doesn’t have any additives or mysterious ingredients. I like to mix it in my coffee when I need to get my day started with some extra energy. MCT oil is very nourishing for the thyroid and is easily burned by the liver rather than stored on the body. I hope you love these Keto fat bomb brownies and leave a comment if you make them.

They have 3 great products so far that I have tried and really liked a lot. The MCT powder I used above in the brownie plus a great BHB drink that promotes ketosis in just a few minutes. Also a multivitamin that can help us when our personal diet isn’t enough to get all the nutrients we need.
From the Manufacturer:
We created Keto The Great because we believe being healthy should be more than just a diet but rather a transition into living a healthy lifestyle. And while a ketogenic lifestyle is a rewarding one, it can be hard to transition into. For many, getting to a point where you feel full and satisfied can be difficult. So our team created Keto The Great supplements to help make that transition easier!
“There is nothing impossible to him who will try.” So said Alexander the Great. Keto the Great pays homage to the relentless perseverance of our namesake by providing products that empower you. Our supplements, shakes, and keto treats support you on your journey to a better, healthier you. The road will surely have its

BHB Ketone supplement: This is a great product to enhance your transition to being in a ketogenic state. It can be used when you are just starting the Keto Diet to get over the rough beginning often called the keto flu. Another way is to use it before training to increase performance . I like to use it to increase concentration when I am trying to get a lot of work done. Just mix in water and drink on the go. Some people use this these types of products to make up for eating carby foods but I don’t think you will get results you are looking for with that method.
Even the late great Dr. Atkins advised low carb dieters to add in a lot supplements to fill in the holes that might be left when changing your diet. Another reason we all might need to consider vitamin supplements is that the soils are degraded and don’t provide the same amount of minerals and vitamins for plants that they used to. Meaning that by the time we eat the vegetables or fruit it is impossible to get the same nutrition out of it compared with 50-100 years ago. This vitamin has zinc and selenium, even iodine from kelp for thyroid health. Also it has alpha lipoid acid that supports cognitive function and even turmeric that helps with inflammation. I am excited that there is a vitamin so in touch with the needs of a keto dieter!
