These Peanut Butter Fat Bombs are no-bake chocolate peanut butter keto snacks.
They are an easy sweet snack with only 1.4 grams of net carbs per serving.
Is Peanut Butter Keto?
Not all peanut butter brands are keto-friendly.
You should always check the ingredients list of the peanut butter you buy and look for: no added sugar, no added vegetable oil.
Pure keto peanut butter is made of one or two ingredients: peanut butter and salt, that is all.
How To Make Peanut Butter Fat Bombs
These peanut butter fat bombs or keto Reese peanut butter cups are my favorite snack with my almond joy bounty bars.
If I crave sweet, that is what I grab in the fridge.
You can make them in less than 20 minutes with only 5 ingredients that all keto lovers have in their pantry.
- Peanut butter – make sure you use unsalted no sugar added peanut butter made with 100% peanut or make your own peanut butter.
- Coconut oil – if you don’t like the coconut flavor of coconut oil, use refined coconut oil.
- Cocoa butter or butter – both options are tasty. My husband is vegan, and I like to share my treats with him, so I usually prefer to use cocoa butter. Plus, cocoa butter really adds a real chocolate flavor to those little treats. It is like eating real chocolate without the sugar!
- Powdered sugar-free sweetener – I am using powdered erythritol because it dissolves better than crystal erythritol, but if you don’t mind having some crunchy bites of sweetener, you can use your regular sugar-free crystal sweetener.
- Stevia drops – I love to add some vanilla creme-flavored stevia drops. It is optional, but this adds an extra boost of sweetener and a delicious vanilla cream flavor that I love. Feel free to use the stevia drops you like, of course.
To make these fat bombs, start by microwaving the peanut butter, coconut oil, and butter in a large mixing bowl for about 60 seconds.
You should then be able to stir the mixture with a silicone spatula. It will get more liquid as the ingredients melt and combine.

If you don’t want to use the microwave, you can heat them in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Once the mixture is well combined, add the powder sweetener and the stevia drops.
It will slightly thicken but should be runny enough to pour them into your silicone mold.
Make sure to place your silicone mold on a plate before pouring the mixture. Otherwise, you might struggle to transfer it into the freezer.
You don’t have to add a chocolate shell to these peanut butter fat bombs. They are absolutely delicious as is.
But, if you miss a good Reese peanut butter cup, adding my chocolate shell recipe will make you a real treat.
I love to use chocolate silicone molds that are small but high to create thick peanut butter fat bombs. If you don’t have such molds, you can use a regular ice cube tray.
Make sure you spray oil into your tray to make it easier to release.
Serving Peanut Butter Cups
The peanut butter fat bombs taste like little ice cream cups when they are cold or frozen.
Feel free to double the batch, and you are good for a few months of treats.
It is a very good way to indulge in a sweet treat without blowing your carb count or reaching something you shouldn’t eat.
I recommend storing the peanut butter cups in your fridge, especially in summer, or they get very soft and will melt quickly above 85°F (30°C).
You can also store them for up to 3 months in the freezer and they taste amazing frozen or thawed!
If you don’t want to eat them too cold, simply wait 20 minutes after you remove them from the fridge.
