3 Health Benefits of Fat Bombs

What are the benefits of eating a fat bomb?

#1: Fat Bombs Boost Your Energy

Thanks to their macro makeup, fat bombs digest slower than other snacks like granola bars or homemade energy balls with carb-heavy foods like oats, dates and honey.

Those don’t actually give you an energy boost; they give you an insulin spike and subsequent crash. And that leaves you wanting more sweet treats.

Fat bombs are not like this.

Since they’re mostly fat, keto fat bombs provide steady energy and help keep your blood sugar levels stable.

#2: Fat Bombs Can Help You Stick To Keto

Thanks to their macros, fat bombs are excellent for anyone following a low carb or keto diet and those craving higher energy levels without increasing their caffeine intake.

They’re also perfect if you’re struggling to stay under your carbs, which can be a monumental hurdle in the beginning of your keto lifestyle.

Since fat bombs are roughly 85–90% pure fat, you can snack on them when you’re hungry or slightly less energized without worrying about your carbs.

This extra dose of fat will help you reach or stay in ketosis. 

#3: Fat Bombs Support Your Overall Health

Adding more healthy fats to your diet in the form of keto fat bombs helps improve your cholesterol ratio so you have more good (HDL) than bad (LDL) cholesterol[*][*].

They also help you absorb fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.[*]

There’s enough research to support the numerous benefits of fat for your brain and body too.

So now that you have a better idea of why fat bombs are awesome, you’re ready to learn how to make them yourself.

3 Fat Bomb Beginner Basics

All fat bomb recipes have three basic components:

  1. Base of healthy fat(s)
  2. Low carb or sugar-free flavors and additions for taste
  3. Nutritional rocket boosters to make them even more powerful

#1: Pick Your Base

The best healthy fat bomb base options include:

Once you have your base, you’re ready to add some flavor.

#2: Pick Your Flavor

This is where fat bomb recipes get fun.

So let your creative hair down and think about what you enjoy most when it comes to flavor profiles — both salty and sweet.

Fat bombs can be used to combat non-keto-food cravings with keto-friendly alternatives.

Miss chocolate candy bars, pumpkin pie or cookie dough?

You can recreate these flavors in fat bombs using keto-approved ingredients such as:

  • Cacao powder
  • Dark chocolate
  • Stevia-sweetened chocolate chips
  • Sugar-free extracts of vanilla, peppermint, orange, etc.
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Cinnamon

The same is also true if you want a savory fat bomb.

Add special ingredients like pancetta, fancy cheese or salmon to create decadent, fatty pick-me-ups.

The world of keto fat bomb flavors is as big as your own imagination.

With your base and flavor mapped out, it’s time to pump up your fat bombs with texture and extra nutrition.

#3: Pick Your Extra Add-Ins

Adding energy powerhouses like MCT oil and protein powder to your keto fat bombs will help you fly through your day at warp speed.

You can also add healthy bits of texture to your fat bombs by throwing in any of these ingredients:

  • Almonds
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Pecans
  • Walnuts
  • Cacao nibs
  • Chia seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Black sesame seeds
  • Shredded coconut

You’ll find MCT oil and keto-approved protein here and here respectively.

One word of caution before moving on: make sure to measure your serving of nuts per fat bomb to make sure you don’t go over your carb count as they can add up quickly.

When you put all three of these components together, you get glorious keto fat bombs.

Full-disclosure: what you’re about to read next may cause uncontrollable drooling.

Snack On Fat Bombs, In Moderation

Just because you have keto-safe fat bombs available doesn’t mean you should fill your day with five of them.

Depending on your macros, one or two is all you may need to ward off cravings. Anything more and you could sabotage your daily calorie goals, cause a stall in weight loss or (gasp!) gain weight.

Practice moderation; it’s far too easy to go overboard with fat bombs.
