By the end of the day people find they are coming up short with hitting their fat macronutrient. This is where utilizing fat bombs like these can help make up that difference you need. In addition, fat bombs will also provide a few other benefits as well.
Benefits of Eating Fat Bombs:
#1: Fat Equals Energy
When you are in ketosis, your primary fuel source is fat. This is used for every function in the body. Being fat adapted on a ketogenic diet will allow the body to run on both dietary fat on your plate or fat stores on your body. Gone are the days where you experience the dips in energy or experience slumps throughout the day when the body has switched fuel sources from carbs to fat. Fat bombs will help fuel those energy stores and keep you running at optimal levels.
#2: Sweet Tooth Buster
A little goes a long way with fat bombs. Not only will you feel satiated from eating a small portion, but they are a great way to kill your sweet tooth quickly. An added bonus with these fat bombs is the coconut butter provides a natural sweetness so they do not require a large amount of any additional sweeteners.

The base in these fat bombs is coconut butter and cacao butter, but you can easily change things up and use something like cream cheese or even plain butter and create something savory. Use herbs, spices, vegetables, and other keto friendly ingredients to keep things fresh and new on your keto meal plan.
Whether you need something to tame your sweet tooth, need extra fuel in your tank for increased energy, or simply need a quick on the go snack option fat bombs are a wonderful tool to incorporate on your keto diet. Don’t be afraid to experiment and play with your ingredients. The most important thing to remember with keto is fat equals fuel.
