Why do people eat fat bombs on keto?
When I started following the keto diet I had a hard time fitting in all the fat necessary. The ketogenic diet ideally is around 70% fat. It can be difficult to eat that much fat so keto fat bombs make an easy snack to boost your fat intake. I follow the ketogenic diet to help manage my bipolar disorder so I am not as obssessive with my macros as some people are. Generally I stay in ketosis without a lot work. But I love having little snacks on hand. It makes it easier and helps with the carb cravings.
Can you eat vegan and do keto?
Of course. I am not a vegan so but there are so many health benefits from eating a plant based diet that I am trying to incorporate more vegan meals and snacks into my lifestyle. I have a few good friends that have recently gone vegan. I am in love with their food pictures and wanted to start making some vegan food of my own. I have eaten vegan before. In fact, I was a vegetarian for ten years of my life. I love the lifestyle and the food, so I am trying to eat more plant based meals. I hope to start including more vegan keto recipes on my blog.
This is my first ever vegan fat bomb. I thought it turned out really good! They are a nice little treat for when you need a sweet snack. I hope you enjoy it!
Vegan Keto Peanut Butter and Berry Fat Bombs Recipe
- 55 calories
- 1.1 g net carbs
- 5.1 g fat
- 0.8 g protein per serving
Peanut butter bottom:
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup sugar-free coconut milk
- 2 tbsp of coconut oil
- 1/4 cup stevia
Mix peanut butter bottom ingredients in a food processor. Then spoon about 1 tsp of the peanut butter mixture into a mini muffin pan (24 servings). You can spray the pan with cooking spray but it is not really necessary. Put this in the freezer while you prepare the berry mixture.
- 1/3 cup mixed berries (frozen)
- 3/4 cup sugar free coconut milk yogurt
- 1/4 cup shelled sunflower seeds
- 3 tbsp of coconut oil
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup stevia
Mix berry ingredients in food processor. The sunflower seeds add a nice texture to go with the sweet berries. Spoon around 1 tbsp of berry mixture into each cup. It’s a little shy of 1 tbsp per cup so you may need respoon the berry mixture if you overfill. Then pop it all in the freezer till it sets.
A little tip I got from a friend. If you have a gas stove heat your muffin tin for just a few seconds before popping them out. Or you can let your tin set for a few minutes to losen things up. Once you pop out your fat bombs store them in the freezer immediately. They melt fairly quickly but they are soooo yummy! I am going to make some more!
