What’s a fat bomb?

Fat bombs, also known as fat bombs, keto bombs, or fat fudge, are a snack or treat for people following a Ketogenic diet. They’re loved by Keto followers because they’re a high-fat, low-carb form of energy. 

What are fat bombs made of? 

Fat bombs — shockingly — consist primarily of fat-dense ingredients, like coconut oil, nut butter, butter, etc. Other additives, like cocoa powder, vanilla extract, or nuts are for flavor and texture. If you’re on a Keto diet, you’ll want to be sure to use a Keto-friendly sweetener, like Swerve sweetener.

How many fat bombs can I eat on Keto? 

The number of fat bombs you can eat on a Ketogenic diet depends on the recipe, but they should be used as a snack between meals or a treat, not as a meal replacement.
