How do you make fat bombs?

I love making these keto cream cheese bacon fat bombs. I mix the ingredients the ingredients with a spoon or spatula, but you could use a hand mixer too. I usually roll the mixture in a ball, decide how many I want to get out of it and break the mixture into that many parts. Then it’s easy to roll the mixture into balls. Let your kids help! Turn kitchen time into math time!

I kept a good amount of crushed bacon to roll my fat bombs in, making them so much more baconny – is that a word? Well it is now!

Why are fat bombs important on keto?

Fat bombs are a mix of combination of fat, protein and carbohydrates that help with cravings and keep your fat macros up – sometimes it can be a challenge to get enough fat when eating low carb. Fat bombs are good for increasing your energy level and can help with your ketone levels too, all this to help you stay in ketosis.

You can enjoy one or two as a quick breakfast, mid-afternoon craving curber or workout (before or after) snack. Pop one before bedtime if you find yourself getting hungry.

How many fat bombs can you eat?

Take a bite and see if you can only eat just one! These are 140 calories, and with this size ball, they have 7 grams of protein / 12 grams of fat. Once you figure out your macros, make sure you indulge accordingly. Yes, they are great as fat bombs, but I’ve taken them for lunch with sliced cucumbers or as the filling in ham rollups.

Honestly, I was totally on board except for the dill pickle thing. Don’t get me wrong, I love dill pickles, but I wasn’t feeling it in here so, I thought, all the other ingredients are what go on a loaded baked potato...why not chives instead?? They turned out AMAZING!! I cut them in thirds and put them on top of cucumber rounds-YUM!! Thanks for the inspiration ?
