Fat Bombs!

Have you ever heard of Fat Bombs? Take a look around Pinterest, YouTube, or Google it and you’ll see how popular they have become among people watching their weight, sugar intake, or for many other health reasons. I saw a video last year that one of my favorite YouTubers did showing how she made hers. She makes fat bombs because she wanted to cut back from a serious sweet tooth addiction. From time to time I make a version of these to help me when I’m trying to cut back on the sweets myself.



Fat Bombs

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
1/2 cup real Butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup Peanut Butter- creamy or crunchy (I normally use Natural PB but was out this time)
2-4 Tbsp. Honey or Agave
Vanilla Extract (a splash)
A couple of silicone molding trays (to make mini bite sizes)
Glass jars (for storing)

Directions:
Slowly melt the coconut oil, butter, peanut butter until fully melted. You can do on the stove-top or in the microwave in a glass heat proof bowl (or big Pyrex measuring cup like I did). Stir in honey or Agave. Add a splash of vanilla and stir thoroughly. 


Carefully begin filling your silicone molding trays with the chocolate liquid. Place in freezer for 30 minutes or until firm. Pop out and place in a glass regular or Mason Jars and cover. Keep refrigerated until ready to snack on.

*Caution: These are not very sweet so don’t expect it to taste like good ole chocolate candy. It has a very high fat content so you do want to keep them cold so they don’t melt on you. These have been said to work well for those who are diabetic. Some have said that the high fat content feels weird on their stomach. I haven’t had that issue. I can get by on eating up to 3 a day (not all at once) and feel satisfied.
