Chocolate SunButter Keto Fat Bombs

Being on the Keto diet for a little over a year has been life changing for me in so many ways. Not only has my body changed drastically in a little over a year (see those changes here), but my relationship with food has done a complete 180, which is a very good since I was a huge emotional eater before. Now food is just a means to fuel my body. Nothing more, nothing less. One thing that is a little difficult, at times, is getting enough fat in. That’s where my Chocolate SunButter fat bombs come in handy!

Chocolate SunButter Fat Bomb Recipe

Chocolate SunButter

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place all of your ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. I prefer to use a glass 2-cup measuring cup (like thischocolate sunbutter).
  2. Melt in the microwave in 30-second increments. Do not try to speed things up and put it in for a minute. Trust me…it makes a mess! After two 30-second increments, stir thoroughly. You may need to put it in for a few more 30-second increments. The SunButter takes a bit to melt!
  3. Once everything is melted and mixed well, pour into your silicone mold and freeze for at least an hour.

*I prefer SunButter over any nut butter. If you prefer to use almond butter or cashew butter, go for it!

They are pretty good! You will notice that I do not list any of the macro information. I do this because we all use different ingredients and I don’t want to tell you that a serving of this has 19 grams fat when you used a different nut butter and it has more or less than that. So with any recipe you get off the internet, ALWAYS check the macros yourself.

For your convenience, I listed the items I use to make this recipe below. you can pick them up on Amazon and be making these delicious fat bombs this weekend!

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

One thing my kids love for me to make is banana bread. If they wake up or come home from school and smell that tell tale banana bread smell, they get very excited and I literally can’t keep them from trying to eat the banana bread or muffins while they are too hot! This gluten free banana cranberry muffin recipe is one they really like. If you don’t eat gluten free, simply sub your regular flour for the gluten free flour! So when I found this recipe for peanut butter banana bread, I knew I had to make it for the kids and share it with all of you!

Kit Kat Cookies Recipe

My kids love when I make “fun” cookies. They define fun cookies as cookies that are not like your traditional sugar cookie or chocolate chip cookies. Instead I like to make Rolo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. They loved those. I’ve been asked to make them several times. The funny thing about that recipe is, I bought pre-made cookie dough! It was so easy! I think the hardest part was unwrapping all those Rolo’s! I really can’t wait to introduce them to these fabulous Kit Kat cookies! I am sure they will go crazy for them. Especially Bella…she loves Kit Kat’s!

Don’t these strawberry white chocolate chip cookies look and sound amazing?!? I haven’t tried this yet, but if you would like to try making these cookies gluten free, I would buy a gluten free white cake mix and add a box of strawberry gelatin to it. I plan on trying that in the next couple weeks. If you try it before I do, please leave a comment below! I’d love to know how you liked it!
