Fat Bombs for Weight Loss & Ketosis
When consuming a low carb, ketogenic diet, you are using high fat foods to suppress hunger. Your body no longer uses carbs for energy — it begins to use your body’s fat storages to burn for energy, which is the state of ketosis.
The fat in a fat bomb will fill you up and satisfy cravings, all while the body continues to burn its own fat.
Think about it, your body begins to constantly burn its own fat when you are literally just sitting down doing nothing. Of course, it’s important to maintain a regular fitness regime by exercising 3-4 times a week (which will speed up your weight loss process).
As long as you are getting your heart rate up and keep your body moving. Always make time for physical activity.
The recipe involves 7 ingredients and only a few simple steps. There is no baking involved, no dairy ingredients, and no eggs. Just vegan, gluten-free, and healthy goodness.
Pop these cookie dough balls in your mouth for a healthy snack or dessert, or get your little ones to help you make them (and eat them too). They are so much fun to shape and they are perfect for any occasion, year round.

Remember, you don’t have to worry about salmonella poisoning because there are no eggs in the mixture. So licking the bowl is a must!
All You Need:
- 1/4 cup coconut oil or grass fed butter (melted)
- 1 tsp sweetener (erythritol or stevia)
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp coarse salt
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/3 cup vegan sugar free dark chocolate chips (I use Lily’s)
All You Have To Do:
- Melt the coconut oil or butter in the microwave or on the stove and then let cool. Combine oil/butter with sweetener, vanilla and salt in a large bowl and mix.
- Add in the almond flour and knead dough with hands.
- Fold chocolate chips into the cookie dough. If your consistency is too thick, add a tablespoon of milk of choice, or add a bit of flour to return its thickness.
- Shape the cookie dough balls to whichever size you prefer by hand, or you can use a cookie scoop. Store in the freezer and enjoy!
