It’s no secret I’m a massive fan of the keto diet. Not only can it help you lose weight and reduce your risk of diseases like type 2 diabetes, but following a keto diet means a whole lot of delicious food! (1, 2) At its core, the keto diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet. That means you still get to enjoy foods like full-fat coconut milk and avocado … but some people struggle with either eating more fat on a keto diet or finding quick and easy snack options (or sometimes both!). Luckily, this keto fat bomb recipe has you covered. With only four ingredients and no baking involved, these savory fat bombs will keep you satisfied.

“How Do I Eat More Fat on Keto?” Keto Fat Bomb Recipes Can Help

Most of us have spent our lives avoiding fat. Making the adjustment to not just eating fat but embracing fat can be tough. And if you’ve ever wondered, “How do I eat more fat on keto?”, keto fat bombs are key.

What is a keto, low-carb fat bomb? It’s a low-carb and low-protein — but high-fat — snack. It’s a great way to increase your fat uptake while on keto, while also quelling hunger. They’re quite similar to energy balls, but keto bombs skip the oats, grains and sweeteners that make up most of those. Instead, they’re packed with healthy fats like nut butters, grass-fed butter and other tasty, high-fat foods.

Other ways to eat more fat on a keto diet are just as simple and tasty, too. I make sure I’m purchasing full-fat dairy. Instead of sticking to chicken breast, I go for fattier cuts of meat, like chicken thighs or beef short ribs. Adding butter or your oil of choice to veggies is always nice, and nuts are great for enjoying as an on-the-go snack — like these keto fat bombs!

Do fat bombs help you lose weight? There’s no magic elixir in keto fat bombs. But when they’re incorporated into a well-balanced, healthy keto diet, fat bombs can definitely help you stick to your diet goals while appeasing a grumbling stomach.

      You are joking, right?! Insulin resistance is created by eating too much sugar on a consistent basis, not by eating fat. Probably best to re-read the keto basics elsewhere on Dr Axe’s website to understand what is really happening with insulin resistance. Another great source for getting clear on insulin and insulin resistance is Dr Jason Fung (check out his excellent YouTube instructional videos). Happy learning!

    Made these and they were super easy and yummy! I added organic unsweetened coconut flakes to the top, which tasted great! The recipe fills 6 normal size muffins to the top. Next time, I will probably use a mini muffin pan.

    • Mariae on

      I did and it made more, smaller potions allowed me to have enough for a while. Specially during work hours!!

    • Michelle G on

      I didn’t have any mini muffin pans, but used 2 of my six-muffin pans and only filled them halfway. It made them rather thin, but still just as good!

    It would be useful to break down fat content at least into saturated and unsaturated amounts so that those of us also try to avoid saturated fat have ful info.

    These look delish!!
    I’m looking for gluten-free “vegan” keto ideas to support my nutrition limitations. Is there any such thing? Vegan due to various allergies (milk, fish, other animal products). This surprises me as I prepared only pasture raised, non-GMO, organic items. I’m also a breast cancer survivor so doctors said NO SOY, which makes being vegan a bit more difficult to take in protein. Pea Protein seems to be working however don’t know how to get that into my diet unless I purchase processed food items. Have never been a “processed food” person, so this is a challenge.
    ANY information or just a “point in the right direction” if you don’t have the answer would be greatly appreciated.
    With gratitude,
    Evette : )

      I feel for you. Dr. Axe has many recipes and some are vegan. Coconut wraps may work for you to make with avocado, etc. AAlsolook for Dr. Nemechek protocol for autonomic recovery. God Bless!

    • Esther on

      There is quite a bit of help for a ketogenic diet for vegans on the Internet. I recommend you Google “vegan keto” and you will get a lot of help.

      Dairy is very healthy to consume. You just need to make sure it’s as close to raw as possible. Agree, it’s not good when they over heat it. But it’s way better then doing “ nut mills” with so much junk in them

    • Nan on

      Not really. Pastured dairy is not unhealthy. Yeah, yeah. I’ve read garbage saying it is but upon investigating, I’ve discovered not all dairy is created equal.ly

    Sounds tasty but how much in grams – or even ounces – does a stick of butter weigh? (for the Australian readers).

  5. Karen on

    I just made these fat bombs in a mini muffin tin with mini liners in them. These are great. The only thing I added was a couple packets of stevia because i like them a little bit sweeter. Thank you Dr. Axe for a wonderful recipe. I will be making these all the time.
