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.

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter no sugar added
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar alternative like Swerve confectioners
  • 9 ounce Lily’s chocolate chips
  • Sea salt


  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine sugar alternative, peanut butter and butter; mix well. 
  • Shape into 1-inch balls and place on a waxed or parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Chill for a minimum of 30 minutes or place in the freezer until firm. 
  • 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. 
  • Place in an air tight container and keep in the refrigerator or freezer. Enjoy! 


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.

  1. I don’t have Lily’s, but I do have an organic unsweetened baker’s chocolate bar 100% cocoa. Would it be OK if I just drizzled the melted chocolate over the top and not completely engulf the peanut butter ball? I’m more of a peanut butter lover than chocolate 🙂 The salt on top is PERFECT!

    1. Hi Charlene, so sorry for the delay. Lily’s is sweetened with stevia, so it depends on your tastebuds, but to me pure cocoa would be delicious. Hope you tried it. Let me know if it worked out for you.

    1. Hi Kelly, I didn’t provide the carbs because I didn’t use all the chocolate in the recipe, but I’m estimating about 7 carbs per fat bomb and the same for fat. Hope that helps. You can use a recipe analyzer like My Fitness Pal for all the macronutrients by inputting the exact brands of ingredients you use.

  2. I’ve been trying to ease myself into a semi low-carb/keto diet and these sound PERFECT! And they look delicious too. I’m going to make myself a batch tomorrow for the week ahead! 🙂

  3. What perfect timing! I have just been on the look-out for a new keto sweet treat to try and here I am looking at these amazing chocolate peanut butter fat bombs! Yes, please!
