Peanut butter & Cacao Fatbombs

Fatbombs are Keto heaven, learn how to make them with only 5 ingredients!

Fat bombs contain lots of fat, but on a ketogenic diet (just like on a Paleo diet), eating healthy fats is highly important to lower inflammation in your body. So, most ketogenic fat bombs contain coconut oil or coconut butter as an ingredient.ย  Just be aware that although peanut butter is delicious and nutritious and is allowed in limited amounts on a ketogenic diet it is also a legume not a nut as you might think. It is in fact inflammatory so you might want to substitute with cashew butter or almond butter, if you prefer. One per day is recommended.

Bottom layer:
3 tbsp organic crunchy peanut butter* with no added sugar or palm oil
2 tbsp raw organic cold pressed coconut oil
1 teasp Xylatol

Top Layer:
3 tbsp Organic smooth peanut butter* with no added sugar or palm oil
2 tbsp raw organic cold pressed coconut oil
3 tbsp raw organic cacao
5 teasp Xylatol
1 vanilla pod or 1 teasp of vanilla extract

To make:
Have 2 small pots, in one put 3 tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in one, warm the mixture until well combined (No need to cook).ย  Put the mixture into a tiny silicone muffin tray only halfway up, then leave the bottom layer to cool in the freezer for approx 30 mins until set. You can use whatever shape you want, round square or heart shaped silicone trays.ย  I had none for this recipe so I used two large flat deep dishes instead and cut them into 16 slices .

For the top layer put the same ingredients with the addition of 3 tablespoons of cacao and 6 teaspoons of Xylatol and 1 organic vanilla pod in the second pot and warm up and mix well until smooth (I usually use smooth peanut butter for the choco layer. Allow to cool to room temperature. Then take the tray out of the freezer and pour the cooled choco layer on top of the peanut layer. Put back in the freezer until set.

To Store:
Put them in the fridge in an airtight container and they will be fresh for about 1-2 weeks.

Enjoy the deliciousness with a cup of black coffee for a Keto heavenly moment of yummyness….mmmmmmm
