I learned something.... the coconut oil need to be warmed up a tiny bit..... our microwave is broken so I tried to just get it to a nice warm room temp.... wasn't warm enough. I could feel small chunks of the oil.

Yup, I've made this recipe with and without melting the coconut oil. Melting it works much better!

I made the lemon fat bombs. I added chocolate bark to the top of a couple of them. The bark is sweetened more than I usually do so it will be interesting.I will post how they are. The lick I had off of my finger was so good.

Oh my @marieze I bet those were lemony! I actually liked the chocolate on top. It gave it a different flavor. I loved the original lemon one though. I have some orange extract that I think I might try in the next batch.

I wonder how much people do eat of these at one sitting. I have about 1 TBS.

The original recipe is One serving, the whole thing. It's So rich I can only eat one or maybe 2 T, but spaced out during the day. I make them in a mini muffin pan and put 1T in each.

When I first posted this recipe in another thread in September, I had just made it for the first time and froze it right in the bowl. Once frozen, I chunked off a spoonful and ate it. After tasting it, I didn't let any grass grow under my feet, but posted the recipe right then, and included the carb and fat count. So when I originally posted it, I had only had one taste of it, so didn't know if it would be one serving or more. As for me, a serving was another 'chunk' which was about a tablespoon.

Someone said they were dropping it by tablespoons onto wax paper before freezing, so when I started this thread, I added that to the instructions. But since then I have been lining a muffin pan with paper liners, with a tablespoon in each. Once frozen, I put the liners in a container with a lid and freeze them that way.

Some people have trouble stopping at a tablespoon, but a tablespoon is my limit, too.

No, it says it is 8 servings..... but no matter, just a curiosity on my part. If I ate the whole recipe I think I might get .

I'm doing HFLC for 10 days to get into ketosis and I tried these for the very first time.

These are awesome! (Just like everyone says) I forgot the sour cream, but it is still yummy. They remind me of cheesecake!

I used a muffin tin lined with cupcake liners. I am not sure how much I put in but the lemon fat bars were between a 1/4 and 1/2 inch in height. Next time I make them I will measure it out and see how much I am actually putting in the liner. I mix the ingredients in a 8 cup Pyrex measuring glass, that way I can pour it in and cut down on the mess. I mix jello the same way.
Thank you Widget for an awesome treat!

That's the newer version. Here's the original recipe. I couldn't find the "discussion" about serving size because I think it was in another thread somewhere.

Either way, it doesn't really matter, they're wonderful.

I wonder if this would work with greek yogurt and coconut extract, in addition to lemon juice? Yogurt substituted for sour cream. I think I'll make twice as much as the recipe states.

I think it would probably work fine, but I think the yogurt has more protein and less fat than sour cream, so it gets further away from the "fat bomb" concept.

I suppose that's true, Misti. However, I did make them using yogurt and I added more cream cheese, so it's probably enough fat for this recipe. I used a real lemon and only about 1/4 of it, and they are *very* lemony even without the extract. Delish!

Doesn't the recipe call for one ounce? I made it with 2 ounces! I added a packet of True Lemon to this batch, in addition to the squeeze of about 1/4 lemon. "Batter" tastes delicious! I also used 1 T of coconut sugar, and 1 packet of Splenda. The coconut sugar adds an additional 48 calories.
