Super Food, Chocolate & Almond Butter Fat Bombs

Fat bombs are all the rage in the Keto and Low Carb communities. There are many varieties to the recipe, some with chocolate, some with coconut oil and berries, others that are savory. When it comes to these chocolate treats I like to keep it simple and tasty. This is my favorite version. I love the added health benefits of the cacao powder and the grass fed gelatin.

Cacao Powder is not the same a cocoa powder. Cacao powder is in fact better than cocoa powder, as all of the antioxidants and nutrients are preserved. There are a plethora of health benefits to consuming cacao powder. Ranging from lowering appetite, increasing serotonin, aiding in pms, lowering blood pressure, and the list goes on! It is incredibly affordable and worth every penny over cocoa powder!

Gelatin contains collagen, which is often referred to as the fountain of youth, as it contains many vital amino acids. Collagen is essential to your skin, hair and nail health. Even more incredible than that, collagen can help aid in the healing of your gut, digestion and immune system.

These fat bombs are not only delicious, they are super healthy! This tasty treat comes in at 18 grams of fat and 3 grams of protein! You wont find that in a Hershey Bar, guaranteed!

Servings 10, serving size 1.5 ounces.  Carbs 1.7

1/2 cup virgin coconut oil

4 tbs organic butter

1/2 cup almond butter

    Do you buy your gelatin from Amazon? There were SO many different ones to choose from. Does that matter?

    1. I actually found this one in my grocery store. However I know Great Lakes and Vital Proteins are good brands. Vital Proteins also sells Collagen Peptides, it is also very good for you. Its more expensive though. The collagen is derived from the gelatin and it is easier to mix in cold things. Either way, they are both good. I use the gelatin from Great Lakes in the Orange can.
