I remelted the fat bombs and added more almond butter and chocolate, but they still feel like I'm biting into a big chunk of coconut oil.

Making the fat bombs with coconut oil will do that The very reason I use coconut cream concentrate instead of the oil. I want my treats tasty, not oily. I don't like the bark for the very same reason--oily.

If it's because you don't like the taste of coconut, get the expeller pressed and it has no coconut taste at all.

Someone else doesn't like almond butter. I bet it's because it's not salty like peanut butter. When I've gotten it I just put a little salt in it (the part I'm eating). It's too bland for me and I'm not a big salt adder normally at all.

Will have to give it a try with the butter. They are a little oily, but not so much that they are disgusting. The peanut butter has some texture and seems to help with that. Also, I think the powdered Splenda makes a difference.

I finally made some today. I used Coconut manna, coconut oil, butter, unsweetened baking chocolate and ES Sweetz. They are awesome! Sort of like a Mounds candy bar.

I find that putting them in the cupcake papers absorbs some of the extra oil that doesnt set up compared to strait on a pan.

Mine tasted a lot like Almond Joy

1/2 C coconut oil
1/2 C salted butter
1/2 C chunky almond butter
1 1/2 C finely shredded coconut
3 T cocoa
6 T DaVinci French Vanilla syrup
Kosher salt to taste

I didn't have a scoop to get the portions exact, but I ended up with 22 bombs: Cal: 155.8, Fat: 16.4, Protein: 1.4, Net Carbs: 1.6 each. Next time, I'll try to get closer to 30 or 36 out of the batch.

DH and I were pretty impressed with them (and I have a feeling he'll be nicking them all out of the fridge if I don't watch him lol). I like them because of the chewiness/texture, which greatly helped to offset the coconut oil.

4 TB CO
4 TB Natural PB
1 TB Salted Butter
2 tsp granular Splenda
1 square 100% dark chocolate, shaved

Combine all ingredients into pan over low heat until melted. Place 1 Tbsp each into regular size muffin papers. Freeze for 20-30 minutes. Remove from muffin cups and place in ziplock in freezer.

These taste exactly like peanut butter cups. I can't keep my kids out of them!

Here ya go:

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...fat-bombs.html

I know that someone on there (I think ) mentioned they googled fat bombs and did NOT get the result we were talking about so yes, please do be careful when googling

Oh, and they are good for when you are following a high fat way of eating and need a tasty way of getting in more fat! I think wifezilla may post why they are good for you and why she eats them. I eat them because they are good and tasty!

My wife made these over the weekend using the recipe in the OP with a few minor tweaks. They were delicious but just a little oily. I'll have to mention the coconut cream concentrate. Thanks to everyone for sharing recipes.

I put the last batch in the paper cupcake liners and it did help with the oiliness a little. I really don't mind that it is a little bit oily though, so I guess it is just one of those things that you need to use what tastes best to you. I do plan to make some with the coconut butter versus the oil only and see how they taste.

I finally got some cupcake liners and decided to try making these again. In mine I put 2 TBS Almond Butter, 4 TBS Coconut Butter, 4 drops of liquid EZSweetz sweetner, and then placed whole salted almonds inside each cup as well as on top. It made 10 cupcake sized pieces about 1/3 of the way full. They are in the freezer now. I tasted them before freezing them and they taste the best so far out of all the attempts I've made. I can't wait to taste the finished product.

You're welcome, and I'm so glad you liked them! And you're right, they taste a lot like the little coconut chocolates in the sampler (which I love).

I think I wound up eating 4 of the bombs the first time I made them...uhhh, had to do Quality Control!

I have tried a few different kinds with no preference as long as it is extra virgin, unheated, unrefined. Most natural/health food stores carry it and I'm sure netrition probably does too.

I haven't tried very many, but I like the Nutiva brand really well. I bought it from Netrition, but you can check on their website to see if it is available in your area.
