Favorite fat bomb recipes
 
Can you define fat bomb for me and explain exactly how much is ok to have and how often?

Also, I am not using artificial sweeteners, artificial anything and no eggs. What are your favorite fat bomb recipes w/out these ingredients?

Want to stay away from things that can cause inflammation in the body.

Thanks!!! :shake: Terry

Fat Bomb is usually a generic term for any snack that is as close to 100% fat as you can get it.

I'm kinda curious to see if anyone knows how to make one without sweetener though.

I've always thought of them as sweet treats but I guess there is no reason it couldn't be a savory treat.

Right off hand you might try cream cheese and butter whipped together and then some sort of seasoning. Hmmm. A spicy rendition might be with Slap Ya Mama hot seasoning. I might have to try that myself.

I just made some tonight for the first time, but added no sweetener!

Microwaved 8 oz coconut oil, 8 oz almond butter, and 1 stick of salted butter together, then divided it among 24 cupcake liners and froze.

An hour later I melted a stick of 85% Lindt chocolate and 2 more tbsp butter, and then dipped them all in it. Laid them out on parchment paper and refrigerated them until firm.

They tasted so amazing!

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup peanut butter - crunchy is awesome
2 tbsp of cocoa powder
1 tbsp sweetener, optional

I almost never use a sweetener, but I suggest using an unsalted peanut butter...or they will have a salty taste without it.

Microwave and stir until smooth, pour into 8 cupcake liners, store in the fridge, delicious chocolately smooth melty peanut butter cups.

You can switch out the peanut butter for coconut butter/manna, or any nut butter, or just use regular butter. You can also use flavour extracts instead of the cocoa. Fat bombs are basically just a way to up your fat intake for the day without increasing protein.

Add coconut, other chopped nuts, anything you can think of. Ground flax even!

That does sound pretty dang tasty :)

Did you sample them without the chocolate dip?

I call mine "pretend pb fudge":

4T. EVCO
1T. Natural peanut butter
2T. EAS whey protein powder
1t. cinnamon
2pkt. Splenda

Melt---Mix---Spoon into 12 equal parts of the silicone mini muffins pan.
Refrigerate till firm...pop them out....discs of YUM!:heart:
Store in a ziploc in the frig. 3 to a serving.

This sounds interesting. I like Frank's Red Hot for buffalo wings so would probably try it with that. But would it taste good cold?

Room temp was what I had in mind but I bet it'd be excellent cold. I'm out of cream cheese but I'll get some Tuesday and try it in a few days.

Yeah, I couldn't get passed the coconut oil taste/sensation (you know, the way it feels cold in your mouth?).. once I dipped in chocolate, they tasted like a coconut Reese's!

BTW, I used salted creamy almond butter and salted butter.. I prefer salty to sweet any day of the week.

Although not exactly a fat bomb I've been making crustless quiche which is high fat/low protein for the times when I want to feel like I'm eating. The ratio is a quarter cup of cream for each egg along with an oz of cheese. You obviously could adjust the ratio of cheese if you wanted. I also get bacon ends and cut up the fatty bits. For 12 'muffins' I use 5 eggs, 1 and quarter cups of cream and 5 oz of cheese.

I made some using similar ingredients (I used coconut butter rather than coconut oil.), but added in the Lindt bar with the butters. I froze into 48 mini cupcake liners, making each serving 1/2 oz. No sweetener needed. They are so good that I have to keep them in the basement freezer, or I'd be tempted to have one every time I walk by the refrigerator.

Thanks. Sounds like really good ideas. I'm being very strict about not eating sugar because I'm aiming to starve cancer cells and shrink tumors with the ketogenic paleo way. Paleo means I don't normally eat dairy unless I can find raw cheese. So...hmmm we'll see...I'll check out the amount of sugar/carbs in the Lindt bars but I'm thinking that unsweetened cocoa may be the best way to go for me right now. I hope I don't fall asleep tonight dreaming about Reese peanut butter cups. LOL. GOOD news is I'm definitely in ketosis so I'm feeling very optimistic about those cancer cells dying off. Terry

jillybean720 01-28-2013 06:58 PM

I've been making mine using erythritol instead of artificial sweeteners. Might that be an option? I've also used Truvia, which is erythritol and stevia. I just Googled erythritol and inflammation and didn't come across anything, but that's obviously not the most conclusive research ;)

Wow Terry! That is terrible about your condition. I hope you get well.

Aren't artificial sweeteners okay? I mean outside of the restrictions of Paleo.

I have seen that mentioned by various LC docs. LC is the best diet for cancer.

You could use stevia as a sweetener - it doesn't affect blood sugar, and it wouldn't "feed" tumor cells. You might also try monk fruit, AKA lo han guo - it's naturally 300x sweeter than sugar, with no blood sugar effect, and doesn't have nasty side-effects; it's been used in china for 1,000 years for diabetes. On wikipedia they mention that it appears to have anticancer properties as well. :D Sounds too good to be true, eh?

My basic fat bomb recipe is 4 TB nut butter, 4 TB coconut oil and 4 TB butter (you could substitute another type of oil instead), plus 1 TB of dark cocoa powder and sweetener to taste. Mix it all together, divide it among 12 silicone mini-muffin cups and stick it in the freezer for 10 minutes. I vary it by changing up the nut butters and occasionally I'll put extra pecan pieces in it for crunch. Liquid stevia works pretty well for the sweetener, but do not heat it in the microwave - it goes bitter. Add it to your recipe after everything is already melted.

I also second the suggestion of coconut butter, also called coconut manna. It's really rich, and easy to eat too much by the spoonful. It has some natural sweetness to it, but it's pretty low-carb, so you could make some good fat bombs with that.

Mm that recipe sounds good! Do you ever use peanut butter? I know Atkins people don't like to use it because of it being a legume, but I've noticed its a bit lower in carbs than almond butter.

Also, do you mind telling what the difference in taste is between coconut butter & oil?

MerryKate 01-29-2013 08:49 AM

Yes, I do use peanut butter. I have to use it in recipes...if I eat it by the spoonful I have a hard time stopping. :) The coconut butter has coconut meat in it, so it's a stronger, sweeter coconut flavor.

ha, and see, I've been using almond butter instead of peanut butter because so much of almond butter's carbs are fiber, so much lower in net carbs than peanut butter! Funny how we each look at things so differently :)

Not sure I would say it is my favorite as I have yet to taste it but I found a bottle of Raw Tahini (ground sesame seed butter) in my fridge:

1/2cup of CO, Butter and Tahini melted and divided.

We'll see how it tastes!

Flowergirl51 02-02-2013 03:20 PM

Lots of good ideas here. I'll need to do some research on stevia and cancer. I tend to want to do w/out any sweeteners, artif. or otherwise as they all go through a refining process and who really knows how they effect us on a cellular level. When I put finely shredded unsw coconut in the bombs they taste pretty good. T

FAT BOMBS
 
Can Macadamia Butter be used instead of Peanut or Almond Butter?

sbarr 03-20-2014 01:48 PM

Yes, you would want it to have no added sugar.

Main objective here - high fat and minimal or no carbs

That actually sound like it might be good. If you come up with a recipe that works, please post to this thread - I would be very interested.

I put cooked mushrooms in my quiche, 3rashers bacon (cooked) cheddar cheese and 5eggs plus cream. I put them in 6deep pan silicon cup cake moulds and does 3days/meals

EVCO would be extra virgin coconut oil. Any coconut oil would be fine, I'm sure. EAS is a brand, if you click on the link it will take you to that page on Netrition's site. I have never bought that brand. Any low carb whey protein powder would do. Personally, however, I don't add protein to fat bombs. The point is to get fat without extra protein.

Thanks, Mistizoom!
I sometimes need to make sure I am getting my protein...hence the PP addition...plus the added vanilla flavor gives a different touch.
