Introduction: Fat Bombs - Dark Chocolate & Walnut

Picture of Fat Bombs - Dark Chocolate & Walnut

If you haven't heard of fat bombs you are probably wondering what they are! Fat bombs are a high-fat, low carb, low sugar snack to keep you satisfied between meals. They can be sweet or savory and are often eaten by those following Keto diets. I don't follow any diets (or claim to know anything about them), I just eat fat bombs because they are delicious and I love to snack!

They consist of three main ingredients: a fat base (coconut oil, butter, cream cheese); a flavoring (spices, cocoa powder, maple syrup, extracts); and some sort of mix-in (nuts, seeds, fruit, etc.). There are infinite combinations and all that I have tried are delicious! This is a very easy one to make and your taste buds will be delighted when they experience a fat bomb! :)

Step 1: Fat Bomb Recipe

Recipe for Fat Bombs

4 ounces quality 85% dark chocolate

3 tablespoons butter (preferably grass-fed)

1/2 cup coconut oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup walnut butter (for recipe see

In a medium sauce pan over medium heat melt chocolate, butter and coconut oil until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract and walnut butter making sure no lumps remain.

Set aside and let cool slightly.

Step 2: Pour Fat Bomb Mixture and Refrigerate

  • Grease a 5x5 glass pan (or similar size) and line with parchment paper.
  • Grease parchment paper.
  • Once the mixture has cooled slightly pour into prepared pan.
  • Place in the refrigerator until solid. I left mine overnight but a few hours probably would have been good enough.

Step 3: Remove Fat Bombs and Cut

  • Once the mixture has hardened cut along the non-parchment lined edges.
  • Lift fat bombs from the pan and place on a cutting board.
  • Using a very sharp knife cut into 16 equal squares. Keep refrigerated.

Eat, enjoy and feel satisfied between meals!

I'm on a low carb diet so these work perfectly. I added hazelnuts and coconut. Yum!

Anyone know the nutritional details for these fat bombs? Like the total fat, serving size, etc?

I made them and made the walnut butter to use in them.

going to make another batch with almonds and make the almond butter,
too. The walnuts (store bought) had a bitter edge that almonds don't
seem to.

Definitely easy to make and taste great. They'll be a regular around here.

Looks good! I would put them in silicone molds so I wouldn't have to cut them. Also...could I substitute almond butter for the walnut butter?

I didn't have a silicone mold at the time I made this recipe, but I have one now and definitely recommend it. It's much more simple to just pop them out of the mold. Yes, you can absolutely substitute almond butter for walnut butter!

How did you cut these so perfectly?! That's some kind of magic I do not possess!
