I have 9 of the best ever Keto fat bomb recipes, all of which will help you induce ketosis. Just looking at these pictures makes me want to eat the computer screen. I don’t think it would taste as good as the fat bombs, though.
Now that sounds like heaven to me. What could be better than that? Oh, and maybe losing some weight at the same time. My goodness, where have fat bombs been all my life? Glad I found out about them.
It seems to me that eating a fat bomb is like eating candy but without the unhealthy sugar. Do you like the sweet fat bombs or the savory fat bombs better? I hope you enjoy these recipes.
Why do you need fat bombs on Keto?
The awesome thing about them is that when they are done correctly, they have a really good proportion of fat, protein and carbs and can help you get your daily macros in the perfect balance. In turn, this will help you get into ketosis faster or stay there, which gives you all the good benefits of the Keto diet like increased energy and weight loss.
How many fat bombs can I eat on Keto?
Eat only how many you need to balance out your macros on a daily basis. I wish I could say you could eat all you want, but sadly, if you eat too many you will throw off your ratios and have too much fat in your diet.
Can I eat too much fat on Keto?
Sadly, yes. You can’t just eat coconut oil by the spoonful all day and that’s it. It doesn’t exactly work that way. You need to have a good balance of your macros.
Why is coconut oil in so many of these recipes?
It not only tastes good and hardens at room temperature, which makes it good to form into balls but it is a healthy fat for most people and should be one of the healthy fats you consider including in your Keto diet.
Coconut oil is made up of 6 fatty acids, but of those 6, there is only one fatty acid that makes up more than 10% of coconut oil. So, if you ask me when someone says there’s this study about caprylic acid and how it’s so great and marvelous, that doesn’t necessarily mean you can make that leap to saying that coconut oil has those same benefits.
After all, caprylic acid only makes up 7% of coconut oil. So you have to take that into account. Like, say you read an article and it says 1 unit of caprylic acid a day helps with X, say there are only .1 units of caprylic acid in a tsp., you have would to eat 10 tsp. a day to get the benefits at the level it’s talking about in that study. You also have to consider things like how the coconut oil is processed and if you are heating the coconut oil. All those things can change the conclusion.
According to Wikipedia, coconut oil is made up of 48% of lauric acid. To me, that’s significant. If you haven’t heard of lauric acid before, just know that it’s awesome. And 48% is an impressive amount.
If you take the percents of caprylic, lauric and capric acids and add them up, around 62% of the oils in coconut oil are medium-chain fatty acids. So some people say that coconut oil is bad because it is about 90% saturated fat. I grew up being told that saturated fat was evil, horrible and to be avoided at all costs.
But it’s important to note that since the saturated fat in coconut is 62% medium-chain fatty acids, it’s healthy saturated fat. What do I mean by healthy? Short and medium-chain fatty acids are absorbed by our body just as other absorbed nutrients do. However, long-chain fatty acids end up as triglycerides. The triglycerides are coated with cholesterol and protein into a compound called a chylomicron.
Further, there is increasing evidence that saturated fat does not cause heart disease, nor does high cholesterol.

Yum Yum – Cashews and chocolate used to be my weakness too. I absolutely adore cashews. I know a lot of people like them too. What is it about them? Is it the cute little curvy shape or the taste? Personally, I think it’s both. God must have been in a really good mood when he created cashews.
Have you ever wondered how cashews grow? These little things called apples grow on a cashew tree. They start out yellow, then turn red and the nut grows on the end of it. Cashews are native to Brasil but now they are grown exclusively in India, Africa, and Vietnam. Isn’t that interesting?

7. Bacon & Guacamole Fat Bombs – Keto Diet Blog
Avocado – Butter – Onion – Cilantro – Bacon – Garlic – Chili Pepper – Lime Juice – Pepper – Pink Himalayan Salt
I can’t think of anything better to combine together for a treat than bacon and avocado. Of course, they’re really easy to make and even easier to pop into your mouth and enjoy. There are no tomatoes in these because they would be too runny.
Make sure you use the lime juice because it will help keep the avocado from going brown. Store them in an airtight container for a short time to minimize browning also. Avocadoes don’t taste any different if they are brown, they just aren’t very appetizing.

Commercially pistachios are grown in Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Syria, and Italy. That’s because of the arid climate which is optimal for their growth.

They look like the divinity candy my grandma used to make. But they aren’t, that candy had tons of sugar in it. I really like how these are a pretty pink color. They’d be a really fun treat for a baby girl shower or something like that.
