Coconuts have some amazing health benefits, you can read about them here .
I make these Keto fat bombs using toasted coconut butter. I made traditional coconut butter, but I first toasted the coconut in the oven before hand. This gives the coconut butter such a wonderful nutty coconut flavor!
If you’re never made your own coconut butter before, you really must try it! It’s super easy and only takes a few minutes to make.
How to Make Toasted Coconut Keto Fat Bombs
1/2 cup toasted coconut butter
1/4 cup grass-fed butter (I use Kerry Gold), at room temperature
1/4 cup extra virgin organic coconut oil
20 drops of liquid stevia sweetener drops
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
Add the toasted coconut butter, butter, coconut oil, stevia and vanilla to a bowl and mix using a hand mixer until well combined.
Pour into silicone mini muffin molds (or an ice cube tray) and place in the freezer for 15 minutes to set.
Remove and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
Why Eat Keto Fat Bombs?
A Ketogenic Diet consists of a high amount of fat, moderate protein and low carbs, so the bulk of our calories come from healthy fats. If we don’t consume enough healthy fat, we run the risk of following a high protein diet which is not Keto!
Some people struggle with this concept, since we’re been told for many years that fat is bad and we should eat low/no fat. Nothing could be further from the truth!
These fats can include butter, heavy cream, coconut and coconut oil, avocados and avocado oil, mascarpone cheese, olive oil, cream cheese to name a few.

Adding these healthy fats into our meals is key, but there are times when you just don’t have enough or doesn’t quite fit into a particular meal that you’re preparing. Fat bombs are perfect for times like this, where you can consume one or two and get your healthy fats in your macros! Most recipes make a fairly decent amount and most often can be frozen, so you can always have some on hand!
Another great perk to most fat bombs is they double as a sweet treat, that doesn’t kick you out of Ketosis! Who doesn’t love a bite of something sweet, without having to make an entire cake, pie or batch of cupcakes!?
