Keto chocolate chip cookie dough fat bombs
Here I am sharing with you a chocolate chip cookie dough fat bomb recipe using butter. Of course, it is an easy recipe to make but you should still follow my tips to make the most delicious fat bombs.
Softened butter – it is crucial to use soft butter, not melted butter. If you don’t have an electrc beater at home, buy soft spreabale butter, the recipe will be super easy to combine with a spatula. Otherwise, you can use regular butter, but place it out of the fridge for 2 hours before making the recipe and use an electric beater to whip the butter first.
Peanut butter – use a fresh jar, with oil so that the fat bombs stay moist. Also make sure there is no added sugar, no added oil in the jar. You will be surprised to see how many peanut butter brands include vegetable oils (not keto) or sugar
Coconut flour – coconut flour is a great keto flour, safe to eat raw. It adds a delicious cookie dough texture to the balls
Sugar-free powdered sweetener – I like to use Monk fruit stevia blend from Lakanto (affiliate link here) but powdered erythritol works well too
Sugar-free chocolate chips – I like to use stevia sweetened dark chocolate chips (affiliate link here)
More keto snacks recipe
We all need some sweet sugar-free snacks on our keto journey and I am here to share with you some tasty options:
Place the soft butter in a bowl and beat with an electic beater for 1 minute until fluffy and light. If you don't have electric beater use soft spreadable butter from the store.
Add peanut butter, coconut flour and sugar-free powdered sweetener and beat again until combined. You can use a spatula too if you don't have an electric beater.
Stop the beater and stir in the sugar-free chocolate chips. You can also knead the dough with your hands to make sure the chocolate chips are evenly distributed through the batter. The dough should be soft, buttery and smooth.
Test a piece of dough and adjust sweeteness if desired, adding either few vanilla stevia drops (this adds a lovely vanilla flavor too) or more sugar-free powdered sweetener - up to 1/4 cup. Stir to combine. This won't impact the net carbs per serve as this is one of the sugar alcohols that don't affect your net carbs.
Use a cookie scoop to shape 18 fat bombs of same size. I am using the small scoop from my set of cookie scoops (affiliate link here)
Scoop out each balls into your hands and roll into a smooth round fat bomb.
Place each fat bomb onto a plate covered with parchment paper or onto mini muffins paper cups. The balls are soft and may flatten at the bottom but that is easy to reshape them into a round ball after they spend 20 minutes in the fridge.
When all the 18 fat bombs are formed, pop the plate into the freezer for 10-15 minutes to set the balls.
Storage & freezing
Store the fat bomb in an airtight container in the fridge, for up to 4 days.
You can freeze the fat bomb and defrost at room temperature, 1 hour before. Otherwise defrost in the fridge the day before.
