WHAT ARE FAT BOMBS?

Fat bombs are one of the most ketogenic foods you’ll ever find. In short, they are foods that aid in fat consumption during the day for those on the ketogenic lifestyle.

Fat bombs can be used in many different ways – like snacks, meal replacements, or as a side dish. They are incredibly high in fat, with little no carbohydrates and protein.

As a general rule, they are also very easy to make and contain only a few ingredients.

THE FAT BOMB CRAZE

For ketogenic dieters, fat bombs have become a literal online craze over the past few years. Every kind of fat bomb imaginable has been created, it seems, even some very extravagant ideas.

Here’s looking at you, red velvet, white chocolate dipped, dark chocolate drizzled, and cinnamon dusted ones I saw online not long ago.

For most, those kinds of fat bombs are just too hard to make. They may be delicious, but for the general person, just too complicated. Our philosophy is, short, simple, and sweet when creating foods. Fat bombs, especially, should be easy and quick.

Fat bombs are the perfect snack for anyone who tends to like desserts that are rich but not super sweet. Since they’re low in sugar and carbohydrates, fat bombs are great for eating any time of the day, either on their own or as part of a meal.

ARE FAT BOMBS HEALTHY?

Absolutely! If you are a fan of the ketogenic or low-carb way of living, fat bombs fit right into the “rules” of each diet. For both, they are low in sugars and carbohydrates. For ketogenic, they are high in fats.

Furthermore, for each diet, the fats used in these keto cinnamon maple fat bombs are heart-healthy and unrefined.

WHY SHOULD I INCORPORATE FAT BOMBS INTO MY DIET?

The easiest way to answer this is to ask you a few questions of our own…

  1. Do you need ways to find extra fat in your daily diet?
  2. Do you find it hard to meet your unique daily fat intake needs?
  3. Do you like sweet, rich, and easy snacks/desserts?
  4. Do you want to have high-fat, low-sugar treats on hand at all times?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you should absolutely look into incorporating fat bombs into your diet! There are other questions we could ask, I am sure, but those are some of the biggest.

If nothing else, fat bombs are the easiest way to add plenty of fats into your diet each day!

CINNAMON MAPLE FAT BOMB INGREDIENTS

The ingredient list is super simple. You’ll need the following keto and pantry staples to make this recipe:

Keep in mind, if you follow one of the recipe variations discussed below, the main ingredient will change. You might consider reading that section first before continuing, due to the use of different main ingredients.

HOW TO MAKE MAPLE CINNAMON FAT BOMBS

The process to make these fat bombs are is super easy.

Begin by combining all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer or whisk, whip all ingredients together until butter is light and creamy. If you are using a variation (discussed below), the goal is still for it to be light and creamy.

Spoon the mixture into a silicone candy mold and place into the freezer. Freeze for two hours before removing the fat bombs from the silicone mold.

Place into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator

SHAPING THE FAT BOMBS

As a general rule, shaping fat bombs is pretty darn easy. Most are made up of butter, cream cheese, or coconut oil.

This makes them easy to form and shape since these ingredients are super malleable when soft.

For this recipe, we call for the use of a silicone candy mold. However, it is also just as easy to form the fat bombs a spoon. You can also “drop” the fat bombs onto a piece of wax paper as well.

Regardless, shaping the fat bombs will be very easy, especially if you don’t care what they look like when done.

DOES IT MATTER WHAT SHAPE THE FAT BOMBS ARE?

In short, no. It really doesn’t matter what shape they are in. It’s all personal preference. If you prefer eating them like candy, you might decide to shape them like candy is appropriate.

However, if you’re making these for a nice sweet treat, shape won’t matter.

CUSTOMIZING YOUR MAPLE CINNAMON FAT BOMBS

For some, the thought of whipping butter might turn your stomach. However, you can easily make some small changes to this recipe that will be just as fatty and yummy.

Here are a few variations on the original recipe you might consider when making this recipe.

CREAM CHEESE VARIATION

The easiest way to change these maple cinnamon fat bombs is to swap the butter for cream cheese. Make sure your cream cheese is softened and follow the steps of the recipe as written.

CREAM CHEESE AND BUTTER MIXTURE

If you’d like to mix cream cheese and butter together, reduce the amount of butter to 1/4 cup and include 1/4 cup softened cream cheese. Again, follow the rest of the recipe as written below.

CREAM CHEESE AND COCONUT OIL MIXTURE

Lastly, you can remove the butter from the equation again and combine coconut oil (melted) and cream cheese. Like the cream cheese/butter mixture above, use 1/4 cup of each and mix well.

With this variation, know that the fat bombs won’t fluff up as much as they will with the others. There will also be a taste of the coconut oil.

However, if you are dead set against using butter, this is another good option for you. As with the others, follow the rest of the recipe as written.
