Keto Fat Bomb Recipes
– Keto Summit
Keto fat bombs are usually easy and quick to make as they involve very little cooking. And they can be useful as a treat or if you need a pick-me-up in the middle of the day. This vanilla fat bob recipe is a great start, giving you scope to create your own recipes.
In these keto fat bombs, the vanilla and coconut flavors complement each other really well. If you don’t like too much mess, thread each bomb onto a cocktail stick before dipping to avoid chocolate going everywhere – especially if the kids are helping!
Wondering if stevia is a safe alternative to sugar? Registered Dietician Densie Webb, PhD, R.D. says, “Stevia is still a relatively new addition to the nonnutritive sweetener market, and more research is needed before it can be known for sure what the long-term effects may be—beneficial or not. But, based on what’s known right now, stevia sweetener is considered a safe choice for anyone trying to curb his or her sugar intake.”

These sweets are melt-in-the-mouth and taste amazing! If you have any left over, you are best to keep them in the fridge as they melt quite easily at room temperature. If serving these keto fat bombs to children, instead of the whole almond, you can push a lolly stick into them. That’ll make them easier to eat and cuts down on sticky fingers!
– Keto Summit
These little keto treats taste as good as they look! They have a great creamy texture, but with a fruity hit from the freeze-dried raspberries. They make wonderful gifts as they look so good, or would be great served at a birthday party for any age! Store them in the fridge if you have any left over as they soften quickly at room temperature.
Chocolate is one of the most common things that people miss when they are following an eating regime, whether it is for weight-loss or dietary reasons. So why not give this chocolate coconut keto fat bombs recipe a try? They give you the perfect chocolate hit to satisfy any craving.

These peppermint treats are perfect if you don’t like coconut – the coconut flavor is masked by the mint and chocolate. They can be made in molds to make them look even more impressive, or just in paper cases if you don’t have a mold. One really good thing with these keto chocolates is that they freeze really well. So make a large batch and you will have a ready supply when you need a sweet boost full of healthy fats.

This might be one of my favorite keto candy recipes! Coconut and chocolate is a match made in heaven according to my family, and the addition of the vanilla gives the flavor a real boost. This fudge can be cut into squares for a simple solution. Or if you want the presentation to look even better, you can roll them into balls and coat them in cocoa powder to make them more like truffles.
– Real Balanced
Ingredients: almond butter, coconut oil, unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut flour, stevia or monk fruit sweetener, salt.
Ketogenic fat bombs are becoming more and more popular these days as people are trying to avoid store-bought candy.

– Blender Babes
Ingredients: coconut butter, coconut oil, full-fat coconut milk, sweetener, baker’s chocolate, pure vanilla extract, macadamia nuts, salt.
There is something magical about salty and sweet flavors mixed together. And these fudgy bites have just a hint of salt married with the sweetness of the chocolate flavor. If you are serving these keto treats to guests and are not sure if anyone has nut intolerances, then just omit the nuts or sub them for a little bit of shredded coconut.
– Grass Fed Girl
Ingredients: dark chocolate, sweetener, grass-fed butter or ghee or palm shortening, coconut oil, full-fat coconut milk, vanilla extract, chopped walnuts.
It is amazing just how many fudge recipes are available that are low carb and dairy-free, and here is another great example! This can be made in minutes, then placed in the fridge to set – what could be simpler? If you don’t have walnuts then macadamia nuts would make a good replacement. Also, if you are using a tray that is not silicone, try lining it with parchment to avoid the mixture sticking.
– Sugar-Free Mom
Ingredients: sugar-free chocolate chips, coconut milk, stevia, salt, vanilla extract.
This keto candy recipe is perfect if you want to make a larger batch of fudge, perhaps for a party or at Christmas. You can also adapt this keto fudge recipe by adding different spices or nuts – just have fun with it!
Keto Gummies Recipes
Keto gummies are a snack that can be enjoyed by the whole family and can be a useful source of gelatin. These gummies are simple to make and you can use whatever tea you prefer to flavor them. There are several silicone molds on the market now, but you can also use an ice cube tray.
This keto gummies recipe makes a really great refreshing snack. With the cool cucumber, fresh mint, and zingy lime, these are really tasty and could be a good way to encourage the whole family to increase their gelatin intake.

Ingredients: hot water, Passion tea bags, gelatin.
There is something really special about homemade sweet treats that make them even better than store-bought, and they are relatively simple to make. Gelatin has a load of health benefits such as strengthening hair and nails and making your own gummies can encourage the kids to eat healthier treats too. Again, this is a versatile sugar-free recipe, so try experimenting with other flavors to find your favorites.
When you are using turmeric, one of the best ways to get the benefit of its curcumin is to add black pepper. (This is exactly what we did when we created our Turmeric Soothe supplement!)
If you want to make sure that the kids get a good amount of turmeric then these are the perfect sweet treats to give them. The ginger also helps if someone has a cold. Just make sure to omit the honey from this recipe to keep it 100% keto.
– Wholesome Cook

If you look at the ingredients in store-bought gummy bears, you’ll also want to start making them at home. Recipes like this one can be adapted to suit yours, or your child’s, favorite flavors. From berry and veg puree for a refreshing taste to almond milk for a creamier gummy bear, the choice is yours. You can even get the kids to help make them – a fabulous pastime for a rainy day!
Other Keto Candy Recipes
Chocolate-covered nuts presented in a lovely box can be a thoughtful gift for a friend or neighbor. Or you can serve these as impressive nibbles at a party. These pecan bites can be spiced with your favorite spices – try ginger, cinnamon or vanilla. The most important tip for this recipe is to watch the nuts carefully as they cook, as they can burn quite easily.
Keto fat bombs can be a useful source of healthy fats to boost energy. These macaroon bombs are delicious, with a slight crunch from the outside to a soft and indulgent center.

– Carb Wars
Ingredients: coconut oil, coconut manna, cocoa butter, powdered sugar substitute (optional), liquid sugar substitute, sugar-free vanilla extract, salt, lightly toasted pecan halves.
This pecan bark has a real Christmassy look to it and would be a lovely treat to make for the family for the holidays! The cocoa butter adds a gentle chocolate flavor which goes so well with the pecans, or you could use walnuts instead if you prefer. You can also use whatever sweetener you like – stevia works well in this recipe. Once it is set, store the bark in the fridge as it will soften at room temperature.
– Delicious Obsessions
Ingredients: coconut butter, coconut oil, shredded coconut, lemon, lime, vanilla extract, lemon extract, lime extract, salt, stevia (optional).
Just the thought of lemon and lime together can make your mouth water, and these keto candies are so easy to make that they could become a family favorite and a go-to if you need a touch of sweetness. They are even auto-immune-friendly, so would be great for anyone with more serious health needs. To shape them you can use individual paper cases, a silicone mold, or spread the mixture on parchment paper and cut into chunks once set.
