Keto Diets Defined

Keto Fat Bomb Recipes

Keto diets are quickly becoming more and more popular as people realize how great they can feel (and taste). 

The origins of this low-carb diet come from epilepsy treatments in the 1920s. Doctors realized that having patients on a keto diet that was high in unsaturated and saturated fat would imitate the effects of fasting. As we fast forward to the modern era, we’ve realized that keto diets have other potential health benefits, too.

The keto diet is an eating style that focuses on low carbohydrates and sugar, high fat, and moderate protein intake. Normally, our bodies use carbohydrates as an energy source. When we switch from carbs to fat as our major source of calories, this causes ketosis. Ketosis is the process in which our body breaks down fat for energy. This energy is known as “ketones,” which are then used to power our bodies. Pretty neat, huh?

There are many reasons why someone would want to follow a ketogenic diet. The keto diet has been shownto help those looking to lose weight, trying to improve general wellness, or even trying to target the symptoms of certain ailments. 

No matter what the reason for your keto diet may be, keto fat bombs are an incredible snack to include in your delish daily routine!

What Is a Keto Fat Bomb? 

The word “fat bomb” may seem a little daunting, but we promise, there’s no need to be skeptical! Healthy fats are non-negotiable when it comes to our health, especially on a keto diet. 

These healthy fats help regulate hormones and keep us full, just to name a few of their hefty qualifications! Because fats can keep us satiated for longer, high-fat snacks and treats are a big help when we’re trying to lose weight.

Keto fat bombs are low net carb, high in fat, and low-sugar sweet treats. Sign us up, please! Keto fat bombs are usually made with either coconut oil, coconut butter, cream cheese, avocado, or nut butter. 

These yummy keto-friendly snacks look like little bite-sized balls or can be shaped into cups that simply pop into your mouth and melt. The idea behind them is to make the perfect snacking or dessert food for those following the keto diet. But hey, they’re so tasty, you could enjoy them even if you didn’t follow a keto lifestyle!

What Is the Purpose of Keto Fat Bombs?

You may have heard terminology such as “bliss balls” or “energy balls” when describing keto-friendly bite-sized, satisfying morsels. Fat bombs can certainly fit into those yummy categories! 

This mix of keto-friendly ingredients rolled up into a ball is a delightful energy source for those on a keto diet.

Sticking to specific macronutrient requirements is key when you are on keto. What is a typical macronutrient split for ketogenic dieters? Many suggest that 70 to 80% of your calories should come from fats. 

The rest of your macros will be filled in with 10 to 20% of calories from protein, with your carb count being the lowest macro: a modest amount of around five to 10%.

Sometimes, finding ways to up our fat intake can be hard! Keto-friendly fat bombs provide a quick and easy solution for a higher fat snack — not to mention tasty, too. 

If weight loss is your goal while you’re on the ketogenic diet, you’re in luck! Keto fat bombs are digested more slowly than carb-rich foods. And as we’ve learned, eating foods higher in fats helps keep us fuller for longer. 

What Makes Up a Keto Fat Bomb?

Crafting a fat bomb worthy of your vegan and keto snacking needs requires the perfect balance of ingredients and flavors. Fat bombs are low carb, low sugar, and high fat, meaning that the ingredients you choose have to fall into those specific macronutrients.

The fat sources in keto fat bombs can be oil based: such as coconut oil or MCT oil. You can also use nut or seed butters. Tahini, almond butter, and sunflower butter work wonders for fat bombs, but you can play around with the many options out there to your heart’s content.

Next, we add some flavorings to give ‘em the ol’ razzle dazzle. Cacao powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon … let your imagination run wild with the various pairings and flavor possibilities! 

When Should You Eat Keto Fat Bombs?

Keto fat bombs are an amazing way to sneak in nutrients and curb your hunger. Preparing a few batches of fat bombs at a time and then storing them in the freezer can help you set yourself up for success. 

Even if you’re on the go or short on time, skipping meals and snacks just isn’t the business. This is where your meal-prepped keto fat bombs can come in handy!

Grab one or three fat bombs as you head out the door for a well-rounded, satisfying snack. That said, while you may want to munch on these appetizing goodies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, they aren’t necessarily a meal replacement. 

Nevertheless, keto fat bombs can be used to supplement your daily diet and help keep you full throughout the day.
