Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bomb Balls
A few years ago I shared my favorite edible chocolate bag for Valentine’s Day, and I have to say that it’s always a hit at parties.
Now with so many people limiting their sugar intake, that same bag can be made sugar-free by using a low or no-sugar chocolate chips like Lily’s sweets.
Can you imagine that pretty chocolate centerpiece made into a keto friendly masterpiece billowing with these chocolate peanut butter fat bombs?! Heck, yeah!
What are fat bombs?
First, you might ask, what the heck are fat bombs?
The cliff notes explanation is that fat bombs are treats made with healthy fats like avocado, peanut butter, butter, chia, dark chocolate to name a few ingredients.
Wait! For years brands have conditioned us to stay away from fats, which lead us to grab low-fat products, right?
Well, the message that we’ve been told, “all fat is bad” is NOT true. Guess what? When we add real fats in our diet, the fat will fill us up providing satiety, so we may not eat as much.
Keto fat bombs vs. energy balls
What are keto fat bombs? When following a ketogenic diet, fat intake is slightly higher than your protein intake. These babies will help you boost up your fat intake in a delicious way!
Are you familiar with protein balls? Protein balls are popular treats to have on hand made with soy or whey protein powder or natural proteins like peanut butter.
The difference between a fat bomb and energy balls or protein bites is that you will find more carbohydrate ingredients like oatmeal in the snack along with the protein.

Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl (defrost at 30 second increments) until smooth. Dip peanut butter balls and place on lined cookie sheet, then sprinkle with sea salt. Let sit until the coating hardens.

Each brand of natural peanut butter has a different consistency. If you find that your peanut butter is too soft to roll in a ball, add up to 1 tablespoon of coconut flour. This will firm up the dough.
Each fat bomb is approximately 7 carbs and 7-8 grams of fat. I did not use all the chocolate, so it is difficult to calculate.
