I love to keep a variety of fat bombs in my freezer for an easy anytime snack. The flavors of these three fat bombs are butter cookie, chocolate chip cookie dough, and strawberry cheesecake.

3 Easy Keto Fat Bomb Recipes• Low Carb with Jennifer (1)


Fat bombs are little bites of heaven. Usually sweet but sometimes savory...they are commonly made with coconut oil, butter, cream cheese, almond flour, or peanut butter.

The macros are majority fat, which means they are calorie dense.


When eaten in moderation on a low carbohydrate diet, they are good at keeping hunger under control. If your goal is fat loss, you still need to be in a calorie deficit. That is why I make these fat bombs on the smaller side so you can adjust your serving according to your goals.


The amount of fat bombs you can eat per day really depends on your calorie goals. You could eat 10 per day if you wanted to, though you couldn't eat much less. There is no prescribed amount of fat bombs you should eat in order to stay in ketosis or to be successful on a keto diet.

Now that we have gotten the specifics of fat bombs out of the way, we can start making some!

I like to keep these 3 varieties in the freezer at all times. They are really good frozen!


First up is my original original energy bite from back in 2016. This was one of the first recipes I put on my blog and it is always a big hit!

The ingredients in this are so simple...all you do is mix together almond flour, butter, granular sweetener, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.

The amount for the ingredients are down in the recipe card.

I use a 1 Tablespoon sized cookie scoop to divide the dough into 12 bites.


These use the same ingredients as the butter cookie, but we added chocolate chips. They are so amazing!

This version made 14 bites.


Guys, these are heaven. I started with softened cream cheese and I mixed in powdered sweetener.

This is the secret ingredient...freeze dried strawberries. You find these at any grocery store or on Amazon.

The whole 1 ounce bag only added 1 net carb per fat bomb and it is so worth it.

I crushed the dried strawberries in a mini food processor and then mixed the powder into the cream cheese.

Use the same 1 tablespoon scoop to make 17 cheesecake fat bombs.

    Butter Cookie Keto No Bake Fat Bomb is absolutely the most delicious and nutritious Fat Bomb Recipe I have tasted! Delicious. I also took the butter cookie recipe and added 30g cocoa powder and made a keto no bake brownie cookie. Excellent!


  2. Jennifer says

    Loved the chocolate mousse recipe. Had a bit of coffee in my cup so added it to the empty cream cup , added salt and microwaved it to dissolve the salt. Came out really well.

    Was difficult to find recipe...but looks great....will make some tomorrow...if I can wait that long. thanks

    I just put the strawberry cheescake confections in the freezer. I was able to make 30 of them using my smallest cookie scoop. ( The mixture was delicious-I had to lick up the remains in the bowl.)


  5. Jane says

    I tried the strawberry bombs and I enjoyed them immensely. I have recently found out about some complicated food sensitivities (e.g., milk enzymes and egg whites) , as a result keto is harder than ever for me to try and do. So far this bomb worked for me.
    I would like to try the other items, would I be able to use quinoa flour instead of the almond? If yes, is it a 1:1 switch. I suspect it would need more moisture. Note coconut flour is currently not an option.

    Using the freeze dried fruit was genius. I found the Strawberries and right next to them was a bag of freeze dried Tart Cherries with Apples. I used the same measurements but cut back on the sweetener by about a third. I think I liked the cherries better. When I decided to make them again, I noticed a jar of Peanut Butter Powder in the cabinet and thought "Peanut Butter Cup". I used 3 tablespoons of powder, 1/2 a pack of Cream Cheese and 2 teaspoons of monk fruit sweetener. Then I melted some Lily's dark chocolate with a little monk fruit for @ 30 seconds in the microwave, stirred it up and did another 15-20 seconds. This hardened the chocolate. Not my intention, but it worked better than expected when I broke it up and it looked and acted like Oreo crumble. I topped all three versions (strawberry, cherry and PB) with chocolate crumble and....pretty sure I heard a choir singing.

    I’m so excited to try the butter cream one. They’re in my freezer right now but for some reason I was only able to make 7 when the recipe says it’ll make 12. Maybe I made them too big?


    • Sasha says

      I just wanted to thank you for this comment as it was a warning for me to make teaspoon size bombs. I only made half the recipe but ended up with 6 so maybe that's the measurement

    The Strawberry cheesecake ones are so amazing was hesitant about them, But im so surprised are good they are
