What is a 'Fat Bomb'?

I did a search, but couldn't find anything. Thanks

Hi Bamababe. Go to "search", then to "advanced search". On that page type in "fat bomb" in the KEYWORD space(upper left of the page), then right below it, make sure you change the box to "thread titles only" instead of posts. A bunch of threads will pop up. If you don't change that box below the KEYWORD box, it will bring up a bunch of posts that just mention fat bombs in them. You want "thread titles only".

You use extra virgin coconut oil and make up little treats that you can freeze and eat to up the healthy fat in your diet. My favorite brand is Nutiva. Here is my recipe, but there are a lot of ones for chocolate fat bombs, etc.

1/2 cup EVCO (again, I use Nutiva brand)
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (you can also use almond butter, etc.)
1-2 tablespoons butter

Melt it all together and pour into paper-lined cupcake tins. I find the paper soaks up the grease and makes them better, but your experience may be different.

Then, you can break up pieces of sugar free chocolate, add in nuts (depending on where you are on in your low-carb journey) add in bits of coconut, etc. Make them the way you think you'll like them best.

I then freeze them and keep them in a ziplock baggie. I use the big, normal size cupcake liners and eat one or two a day. Be careful about eating too many at first and they do have a lot of calories.

These bombs have done the following for me:

  • Helped my dry skin
  • Ended sweet cravings
  • Made me feel fuller
  • Helped bring my blood sugar down
  • Seem to up my immunity from colds (jury still out on this one)
Hope that answers your question. There are tons of different recipes for them, so you may find a different recipe that you like better than mine. I just tend to really like peanut butter. These remind me of peanut butter fudge.

Thanks! You know I've been on this board for years and never figured out how to do a decent search?

Your welcome. I was the same way for the longest time. I used to see new people on other boards get crucified for asking questions that had already been answered before, so I try to help when I hear the tell-tale post "I did a search but couldn't find anything?""

It should be the first sticky on all these forums' main page "HOW TO DO A CORRECT SEARCH".

I agree about the "how to search" sticky. Good idea.

Still, you can know how to do a search, but sometimes people want a quick answer and that's okay, too. I figure we're all here to try to help each other and it take me less time to type a response than a nastigram to them. I don't see that much on these boards, but I know what you're talking about because I've seen it elsewhere before, especially on tech forums.

I'm sure glad no one crucified me when I was a newbie here or I might have just left and never returned and then where would I be?
