Why You’ll Love This Keto Fat Bombs Recipe

  • Balanced Flavor: The sweet, creamy base is perfectly complemented by the warmth of cinnamon, creating a delicious treat without overpowering sweetness.
  • Simple Ingredients: With only five main ingredients, this recipe is as simple as it gets.
  • Convenience: No baking means these fat bombs can be prepared quickly and enjoyed anytime.
  • Perfect Portions: This recipe makes about 12 small fat bombs, ideal for those cooking for one or a small family.
  • Versatility: Easy to customize, you can adapt this recipe to fit your taste preferences or what you have in your pantry.

Ingredients

  • Cream cheese and heavy cream: These create the creamy base and keep the recipe low in carbs. If you’ve got leftover cream cheese and heavy cream, consider using them in a mini Peanut Butter Pie or Green Bean Casserole. For a dairy-free alternative, coconut cream and a plant-based cream cheese can be used.
  • Sweetener: Swerve sweetener provides a sugar-free sweetness that’s keto-friendly. Found in the baking aisle or online, it’s a convenient substitute for sugar. You can also use Stevia, taking care to use less due to its sweeter profile, or pure erythritol, which may require a larger quantity.
  • Vanilla extract: Adds a classic, rich flavor. Almond extract could be used for a nutty twist.
  • Ground cinnamon: Essential for that snickerdoodle taste. Nutmeg could be added for extra spice.

Sweetener Customization Tips

  • Swerve Sweetener Advantage: I like using Swerve because it is an easy, direct replacement for sugar — it measures cup for cup like sugar and imparts a pleasant taste.
  • Adjust to Taste: When experimenting with other alternative sweeteners, start with a small amount. Blend it into your cream mixture, then taste and adjust accordingly to achieve your desired sweetness level without overpowering your fat bombs.
  • Erythritol Note: If erythritol is your sweetener of choice, you may find it less sweet than sugar. In this case, you may need to increase the quantity used. Start by adding it to taste, as you can always add more if needed.
  • Strawberry Infusion: For a fruity twist, mix in 1 ounce of mashed strawberries, whether fresh or thawed from frozen, to introduce a natural sweetness and a burst of berry flavor to your fat bombs.

    This recipe leaves a lot to be desired. It was easy to make and did turn out much like the picture. I made it just like the recipe. The taste was not to my liking. IF I TRY AGAIN I will definitely add something to it (chocolate, berries, etc.) To try to change the taste.

    1. Joanie Zisk says:

      Thanks for your feedback, Georgetta. As written, this is a keto recipe. If you add chocolate and you still want this to be keto, use dark chocolate that contains a minimum of 70% cocoa solids (a higher percentage would be better). As always, we recommend modifying any recipe to suit your tastes.

  2. JBR says:

    Are the keto fat bombs required to be stored in the freezer? Or just to cool them?

    1. Joanie Zisk says:

      I like to keep mine in the freezer. You can store them in the fridge but they will soften – still delicious, just softer.

  3. Barbara says:

    I am gathering recipes for a keto diet so that I can begin soon. Thanks! This one looks wonderful!

  4. Melanie says:

    Is a serving considered one bomb? So each one has 67cal and 3g carbs? Thanks

    1. Joanie Zisk says:

      Hi Melanie,

      Yes, 67 calories for one. The calories come from the heavy cream – high in calories but low in carbs, that’s why it works in low carb diets.
