Chocolate Almond Butter Fat Bombs (Keto | Low Carb | Sugar-Free)
These chocolate almond butter fat bombs are incredibly easy to make, ever-so moreish and require no baking. They are made with almond butter, coconut flour and the best chocolate fudge sauce ever!
What Are Fat Bombs?
Fat bombs are also known as energy balls or protein bites. They are high in fat and protein and low in carbs. They are the perfect snack to curb any sweet cravings, and one of my favourite ways to start the day.
Not A Day Without Almond Butter…
There has not been in a day (probably in last two/ three months) when I have not started my morning off with some kind of almond butter concoction.
I like to go sweet when I firs wake up, so it’s usually almond butter mixed with some kind of flavoured syrup, and lathered on whatever baked good I have on hand (usually some kind of leftover cake).
I spend A LOT of time cooking and baking, so I cut a few corners when I can. Even though almond butter is ridiculously easy to make (check out my Homemade Almond Butter recipe here), I (more often than not) buy it already made. I always make sure to check the ingredients before purchasing it, as to guarantee there is no added sugar or nasties added to it. It should only have one ingredient, which is almonds.
Now, Lets Talk About That FUDGY Sauce…
It’s rich, it’s chocolatey and words cant describe just how good it is.
Hmmmm, let’s put it this way. I don’t particularly like chocolate.
I know that sounds crazy to some of you, but it’s true. I eat all the things I bake, but when it comes to the chocolate goodies, I usually just sample a bit of them, and then leave the rest for my husband and kids.
I’m just not a chocolate lover.
However. And this is a big however. One of the only exceptions to my chocolate residence, is this Best Sugar-Free Chocolate Fudge Sauce.
It is SO easy to make and simply perfect on its own, topped on cakes, waffles, pancakes, ice creams, whipped cream…anything. It is truly heavenly.
I halved my original Chocolate Fudge Sauce recipe for these scrumptious balls of sunshine…and they are ultimately ooey, gooey, fudgy and ever-so moreish!
Cover and refrigerate these fat bombs for up to a week (if they don’t get devoured beforehand!)
You can also freeze them in a ziplock (freezer-safe) bag or container, and store them for up to 6 months.
