I have to admit that one of the highlights of the keto diet are Keto fat bombs.  Never heard of them?  Keto Fat Bombs, also known as Keto fudge are one of the best Keto desserts you can find!

You don’t even have to be following the Keto diet to enjoy these tasty treats.  This low carb chocolate dessert is vegan friendly and gluten free.

How to Make Keto Fat Bombs

Keto fat bomb recipes have just a few ingredients.  A healthy fat (i.e. coconut oil or nut butter), flavoring (i.e vanilla extract, stevia, cacao), and texture (i.e. almonds, coconut, seeds, etc).   Note that the recipe I am going to share is a keto fat bomb recipe including peanuts.

Peanuts are a controversial ingredient in diets such as Whole30 and Paleo.  Even with the keto diet, there are some people who will not eat them.

What are Keto Fat Bombs?

Keto fat bombs are high fat, low carb snacks.  They are designed to give your body a healthy dose of fat needed to provide satiety and give you an energy source.  For me, they are like dessert and keep me full and not wanting to snack on empty calories.

If you’ve ever wondered if you would be hungry on the Keto diet, these Keto fat bomb recipes will do the trick!

Can I eat peanuts on the keto diet?

Peanuts are considered a legume and can cause inflammation in the gut which is why some people choose to forgo them.  Although this keto fat bomb has peanuts, if they are an issue for you, just swap out for almond or another low-inflammation nut butter.

Have you ever wondered if you could do the Keto diet on a budget?  This article is a great resource for my top Keto Picks at Aldi to get you started on the Keto diet – even on a budget!

    these sound so good. I am afraid I would eat them all.


      May 4, 2018 at 11:12 am

      they’re surprisingly filling! I like to keep mine in the freezer and just have one per day.

      1. Bernadette

        July 8, 2019 at 10:05 pm

        How long do they last after freezing?


          July 9, 2019 at 11:27 am

          I tend to eat them right out of the freezer. Since they are made with coconut oil they tend to soften quickly as coconut oil does.

    For the stevia drops, what’s the conversion with regular granulated stevia? Can’t find the drops in my local store and I have SO MUCH granulated stevia on hand. Thanks for the intriguing recipe!


      May 17, 2018 at 9:39 am

      I probably wouldn’t recommend the granulated stevia as it might leave a gritty consistency. This conversion calculator might help!

  • Stefani

    I would love to share this recipe on my blog. These look delicious!

      hope you enjoy!!

  • Rena

    I just found this. I don’t have liquid stevia either.

    Dissolve one teaspoon of white powder in three tablespoons of filtered water. Pour the solution into a dropper-style bottle and refrigerate. You can also buy ready-made stevia liquid concentrate from your local health food store.


      June 19, 2018 at 9:27 am

      perfect hack!!! this is probably a lot cheaper too 🙂

    2. Kim

      September 4, 2018 at 12:56 am

      When you say white powder do you mean the standard Stevia packets that you would use for tea or something?

  • Denise

    July 12, 2018 at 8:51 pm

    Can these be made using butter instead of the coconut oil as the oil tends to upset my stomach. thanks


      July 16, 2018 at 2:15 pm

      Yep! I would opt for grassfed but definitely give it a try!

      1. Krissa

        August 9, 2018 at 9:20 pm

        Is the conversion for butter & coconut oil equal or no? Also make I ask what the stevia extract is? I only have powdered and drops.

        Thank you in advance for your assistance.


          August 13, 2018 at 11:32 am

          stevia drops are the same. they should work great! and yes you can convert butter and coconut oil one for one melted!

  • Ashley Bess

    what kind of peanut butter did you use?


      July 24, 2018 at 6:18 am

      you can use any natural peanut butter. check the sugar count to make sure it’s just peanuts, and doesn’t have added sugar.

  • Adam

    August 4, 2018 at 10:20 pm

    The cocoa is very overpowering! The kids will be getting this batch. If I makes these again, I will do with 1/4 of the amount above.


      August 5, 2018 at 12:50 pm

      definitely depends on your tastes for sure! I like a strong chocolate flavor but definitely dial down if you want a more mild flavor.

  • Ryan

    September 2, 2018 at 2:52 pm

    Are the macros posted for eating all 12. So you would divide those numbers by 12 to get macros for 1 fat bomb. Or are the numbers per bomb?


      September 3, 2018 at 9:10 am

      macros are for the entire recipe

  • Suzi

    September 20, 2018 at 10:00 am

    Could you tell me approx how many this makes? you do say to put them in little muffin papers, but don’t say how many? mini muffin papers? curious as to the macros per serving.


      September 20, 2018 at 6:27 pm

      scroll down for macro info! It’s listed at the end of the post. I used regular sized muffins and it made about 12. You could make mini ones too, it would just make more. Just take the total amount of the macros at the end of the post and divide by how many total you end up with.

      1. Nancy

        February 24, 2019 at 2:24 pm

        Hi! I just made these using mini muffin tin. There would not have been enough of either filling to use regular sized tin! I double checked everything so I ended up with 12 tiny minis. You just said here you used a regular size 10. But the recipe says mini so I’m a little confused. Thanks looking forward to trying them after they freeze


          February 24, 2019 at 4:54 pm

          I did use a regular one and filled them halfway up. So they were minis for me but I did not make them in a mini pan since I didn’t have one.

  • Cynthia

    November 4, 2018 at 6:57 pm

    This is the second time I have made these–LOVE them! They are my favorite fat bomb.


      November 6, 2018 at 9:49 am

      that is great to hear!!! thanks for letting me know and I’m glad you like them!

  • Nancy

    November 16, 2018 at 6:06 pm

    I only have powdered swerve can I use that? What would be the amount to use? Thx


      November 26, 2018 at 3:44 pm

      I haven’t made them with the confectioner’s type! If you do use it, I would see what a powdered sugar to regular sugar calculation would be and then use that!

  • Kim

    January 12, 2019 at 10:34 am

    Hi! I’m using mini muffin pan to make these but do I need to use muffin liners? I made them without and now I can’t get them out of the pan!


      January 14, 2019 at 9:59 am

      I did use muffin liners. I would imagine they would be very hard to get out of the pan if they were frozen to it. Def recommend liners!

    2. Rachel

      January 28, 2019 at 1:42 pm

      I made these last night and i didnt use muffin liners n mine popped out so easier right outta the freezer. I also have a nonstick pan tho so that maybe y it worked for me. But these are pretty amazing


        January 28, 2019 at 4:25 pm

        love that they worked out for you even without the liners!

    If I use PB2 instead of PB what ratio would you recommend? Same as PB or would it be less/more?


      January 15, 2019 at 5:33 pm

      Generally I believe it’s 2 TB of PB2/one TB of water which is 1 TB of nut butter, correct? I cannot attest to the flavor of these though as I do think PB2 would dilute the peanut butter taste. If you try it, let me know how it goes!

  • Carol

    January 17, 2019 at 7:54 am

    We made them with PB2, the last time, but my granddaughter was helping/showing us how to make them and I missed the ratio, they turned out great and didn’t lack the PB taste. Thanks for your reply.I will let you know how mine turn out. lol


      January 17, 2019 at 10:44 am

      oh thats great to know! might be a good switch for another option. thanks for sharing!

  • Melinda Hanks

    January 23, 2019 at 8:48 am

    I’m concerned about the Carbs? 20 is a lot.


      January 23, 2019 at 9:28 am

      that is for the entire recipe

  • Joan

    January 24, 2019 at 3:52 pm

    How many carbs per piece?


      January 26, 2019 at 11:58 am

      check the recipe for macro info 🙂

  • Emily

    January 28, 2019 at 11:25 am

    These look great! I do not like artificial sweetners, do you think they would be okay without the stevia?


      January 28, 2019 at 4:24 pm

      stevia is actually not an artificial sweetener. It’s derived from the stevia plant. You could try them with no stevia but I can’t guarantee how they would taste

      1. Emily

        January 28, 2019 at 6:49 pm

        Oops I didn’t mean artificial I meant sugar substitutes. Just not a fan of the aftertaste.


          January 29, 2019 at 9:06 am

          gotcha!! if you do try without a sweetener, let me know how it tastes! You may try Swerve too, it’s another keto-friendly sweetener that may work!

  • Jake

    February 3, 2019 at 6:08 pm

    Is there supposed to be nut butter in both the chocolate and nut butter layers? That’s how the recipe reads.


      February 9, 2019 at 7:51 am

      nut butter is in both layers.

  • Tina

    February 10, 2019 at 1:29 pm

    You have nut better listed in both layers.


      February 11, 2019 at 12:49 pm

      yep nut butter is in both layers, sorry for the confusion 🙂

    I make these with powder stevia. 1 1/8th of a tsp is enough. But I also used carob powder it is very satisfying. You cant eat too many. But you dont need to. They fill you up. Nice to have the combination of carob and peanut butter.


      March 18, 2019 at 9:17 am

      So glad you liked them!

  • Jenna

    March 22, 2019 at 4:00 am

    I followed this but it only made 9 cups for me… Haven’t tried them yet, but they are in the freezer so I am excited. I had a really hard time getting the chocolate into the muffin papers as it was so sticky and just not coming off the bowl haha.


      March 24, 2019 at 10:09 am

      maybe try spraying them with coconut oil spray next time! Hope you enjoy!

  • Jess

    March 24, 2019 at 5:01 pm

    Mine turned out super bitter. Too much cocoa or maybe the sweetener? I used the liquid Pyure. I couldn’t even eat them.


      March 25, 2019 at 10:35 am

      I’ve never used liquid Pyure so I am not sure how it tastes. If you follow the directions to a T and they are still bitter I would use less cocoa powder. But definitely could be the liquid Pyure.

    If stored in the freezer how long to thaw before eating?


      April 1, 2019 at 11:41 am

      they shouldn’t take too long to thaw. I would say maybe 5-10 minutes max. I usually eat them half frozen 🙂

  • Vicki

    March 31, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    I made these yesterday. Thanks so much, they are delicious! Shared it with my sister and noticed something missing today… didn’t you offer 1/4 cup Swerve instead of 1/4 tsp liquid Stevia?? I used Swerve confectioners sugar replacement.


      April 1, 2019 at 11:40 am

      yep you can def use Swerve as a replacement if you prefer!

  • Kate

    April 8, 2019 at 3:45 pm

    To clarify, the chocolate layer also has peanut butter?


      April 9, 2019 at 9:39 am

      that is correct!

  • Mandy

    April 12, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    I tried this with the coconut oil but I just am not a fan of coconut. So I was going to try it with just butter. You said the unsalted butter right? Also what’s the conversion between the drops and granular Swerve? Thank you!!


      April 19, 2019 at 9:12 am

      butter would work great! My hubby is the same way, not a fan of coconut so I will make with butter sometimes. the granular swerve may make it grainy so I would use caution when using. Just make sure you stir well. The conversion chart says 3/8 tsp liquid stevia to 1 tsp Swerve. You may have to experiment to see where you want it!

      you can purchase stevia extract at whole foods or amazon!

    July 8, 2019 at 11:09 pm

    I substituted butter for coconut oil on the peanut butter top. Turned out yummy

      I bet they were amazing!!

  • Pansy

    July 20, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    I stretched the recipe to 24 using my candy molds. Added extra stevia as it didn’t seem it would be enough for me. 🙂


      July 22, 2019 at 10:29 am

      great idea!!! how was adding in the extra stevia?
