Peanut Butter Keto Fat Bomb Recipe
If you like peanut butter cups but want to avoid the sugar, this is the ketogenic treat for you! These fat bombs have the flavor and feel of peanut butter cups, plus added fat to help you on your keto journey.
Servings: 12 servings
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 1/2 cup Coconut Butter
- 3 tbsp Cacao Powder
- 1-2 tbsp Swerve confectioner's sweetener to taste or other keto friendly sweetener
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 dash salt
If coconut butter is solid, you’ll need to warm it up to make it easily stirable. It will scorch easily if microwaved, so it is better to place in a pan of hot water, in front of the vent of your oven while it is on, wrap in a hot pad or place in a very low (200 degrees or less) oven for 5 minutes at a time. Whatever method you use, check it often. Once you can easily stir it, measure out ½ cup into a microwave-safe bowl. Add peanut butter and microwave for 20 second intervals, checking between each, until peanut butter is soft and will combine with coconut butter.
Add cocoa powder, sweetener, vanilla and salt. Distribute into lined muffin tin and freeze until set. If you don’t have a muffin tin, pour the contents into a 9”x9” pan lined with parchment or waxed paper. Place in freezer.
If using a pan, after 20 minutes, score the fat bombs with a sharp knife, cutting about half-way through. Return to freezer for another 20 minutes.
Once completely set, remove from pan and break into servings along the score lines.
Store in freezer.
