A ketosis diet offers a powerful approach for losing weight and promoting overall health. The idea itself also has no shortage of devoted followers, most of whom are passionate about what the lifestyle offers. And, this is hardly surprising, as a keto approach can offer some dramatic health benefits, along with the chance to avoid many of the issues associated with carbs, such as chronic inflammation.
One key component of the diet is the idea of keto fat bombs and there are some amazing keto fat bomb recipes out there.
These are high-fat snacks that are powerful for ensuring you get enough healthy fats in your diet. They also work well as a way to reduce cravings and keep you going until your next meal.
With that in mind, fat bombs are actually extremely healthy – even though they run contrary to every piece of conventional dietary advice out there.
Fat bombs don’t have to be boring either. Instead, there is a wide range of amazing recipes out there, regardless of what your flavor preferences are.
So, without further ado, here are 33 keto fat bomb recipes to get you started. These are all from food blogs, many of which also offer additional information on keto diets and how to follow them effectively.
Peppermint Mocha Fat Bombs

This list isn’t really in any particular order, but I did place these Peppermint Mocha Fat Bombs first because I love the way that they look and the flavors that are used. Of course, you don’t have to make them in the shape of Christmas trees, especially as it is the wrong time of the year for that. Instead, you can make any shape you like and silicone molds are a great way to achieve that outcome.
As for the fat bombs themselves, the combination of flavors works extremely well, especially for chocolate and coffee lovers. The fat bombs are also fairly easy to prepare, so don’t worry if you’ve never made this type of snack before.
Almond Joy Fat Bombs

The Almond Joy Fat Bombs come from Tasteaholics, which happens to be an amazing site for everything keto. Design-wise, these fat bombs stand out from most others because you’ve got multiple flavors and layers. This also makes them more interesting in terms of texture. But, don’t worry, they are still easy to create and don’t require that much work.
Now, as you can probably guess, you don’t have to go with the love heart shape if you would rather something else. However, this type of heart-shaped mold is extremely easy to find and works well with most fat bomb recipes. Tasteaholics also offers powerful cookbooks:
Lemon Macadamia Fat Bombs
Image from Health Starts in the Kitchen
Without a doubt, my favorite thing about these Lemon Macadamia Fat Bombs would have to be the flavors. Lemon and macadamia is not an extremely common combination of ingredients but it is a pairing that works extremely well.
There are also other ingredients present that add to the complexity of flavor and make these fat bombs particularly attractive overall. Besides – the end result simply looks amazing.
Hayley also offers multiple cookbooks:
Almond Pistachio Fat Bombs
Image from The Healthy Foodie
Unlike many of the other entries to this list, these Almond Pistachio Fat Bombs are entirely unsweetened. This makes them great for anybody who gets sick of sweet treats. Of course, as Sonia mentions, you can also add in your own sweetener to the mix.
Sweetener or not, the combination of flavors in these fat bombs is extremely appealing – especially as they have more complexity and depth than many other options. Like other fat bombs, you could also make these in a silicone tray to help with portion sizes.
If you’re interested in her style of recipe, Sonia does also have a cookbook on offer (shown below).The recipes provided are paleo, rather than keto – but they would still be relevant to many people, especially if you are trying to improve your health overall.
Blackberry Coconut Fat Bombs
Image from Low Carb Yum
Unlike many other options, these Blackberry Coconut Fat Bombs aren’t shaped at all. This means that there is less work involved in creating them and the end result looks a little bit like fudge. Despite the fact that these use fruit as an ingredient, the carb content is still low enough to qualify them as fat bombs for keto.
Nevertheless, some people do experience more issues with fruit and ketosis than others. So, if fruit tends to kick you out of ketosis, the recipe may not work well. But, if you’re fine with a little fruit, then these fat bombs are a great way to get it.
Pumpkin and Sunflower Seed Butter Fat Bombs
Image from Healthy Habit Solutions
These Pumpkin and Sunflower Seed Butter Fat Bombs are another great choice for healthy fats and the recipe relies on a great combination of flavors. The fat bombs are simple to make overall and you don’t even have to worry about using molds (although, you could).
On a side note, this particular recipe is unsweetened. That makes it a good choice for people who get sick of sweetness. However, as the author comments, you can also add in a sweetener if you want to change the taste. Either option would work fine and you do end up with an attractive overall flavor regardless.
Ultimate Fat Bomb Ice Cream
Image from Healthful Pursuit
Realistically, this Ultimate Fat Bomb Ice Cream probably isn’t what you had in mind when thinking about fat bombs. But, why not? Just like other types of fat bombs, this ice cream alternative does heavily rely on fat and is low in both carbs and protein. So, it makes a perfect fat bomb. Besides that, it is also a great alternative to ice cream and is easy to make.
The one catch is that this recipe is designed for an ice cream maker, which is a tool that not everybody will have. Thankfully, there is also information on how to make this without an ice cream maker, so you can still have fat bomb ice cream regardless.
Raspberry Lime Cheesecake Fat Bombs
Image from The Baking Fairy
These Raspberry Lime Cheesecake Fat Bombs are another example that takes advantage of fruit flavors. In this case, you have raspberry and lime, which would create a refreshing taste overall. The fat bombs also look great and I love the way that the raspberries create a varied appearance.
If nothing else, these particular fat bombs are a good option if you want to try something that’s a little bit different.
Frozen Strawberry Fat Bomb
Image from Maria Mind Body Health
To me, these Frozen Strawberry Fat Bombs look a little bit like meringues, which isn’t a bad thing at all. The recipe also works well simply because it is different than many other fat bombs. For that matter, these may be fat bombs but they don’t follow the same general patterns that other options do.
As such, these are a great type of fat bomb if you want something a little bit unusual. One the plus side, this difference does mean that the fat bombs have even fewer carbs per serving than most of the other options on the list.
Maria is another author with multiple cookbooks that showcase her recipes:
Bulletproof Fat Bombs
Image from KetoDiet App Blog
These Bulletproof Fat Bombs are designed to mimic the flavors of bulletproof coffee, while also using many of the same ingredients. As a result, the fat bombs would offer a range of health benefits and are a perfect way to balance your macros as well.
Now, the recipe here is designed to be made in an ice cream maker (like this one from Cuisinart). Nevertheless, there are instructions for making it without an ice cream maker if you prefer that. Either way, you end up with a great treat – from a site that highly specializes in the keto diet.
The KetoDiet site is also famous for its app and has produced the amazing cookbooks below.
Cacao Coconut Fat Bombs
Image from In Sonnet’s Kitchen
These Cacao Coconut Fat Bombs use a fun combination of flavors and ingredients, including cacao powder and almonds. The inclusion of nuts is great, especially as they are such a powerful source of healthy fats. As you can see in the image, these were made with a heart-shaped silicone mold. But, you could also use a different shape or skip the mold altogether.
Clean Eating Peanut Butter Fat Bombs
Image from The Gracious Pantry
A clean eating plan does place some additional restrictions on the food that you can, and cannot, eat. Nevertheless, these Clean Eating Peanut Butter Fat Bombs are one example of fat bombs that work for clean eating and for keto. At the same time, this is also a very simple fat bombs recipe that offers a good balance of flavor. As such, you end up with great tasting treats all around.
There is also a useful comments thread on the recipe page, which offers information about substitutions and variations that you can make. This information helps to ensure that you end up with a snack you like, regardless of your preferences.
Peppermint Coffee Fat Bombs
Image from Keto Size Me
The concept of these Peppermint Coffee Fat Bombs is a little different than you might expect. In particular, they are designed to be used as part of a hot cup of coffee. As such, they can act as a shortcut for making something similar to bulletproof coffee. This style is also an effective way to make an amazing drink, without having to stress about sugar and carbs.
Of course, you don’t have to use them that way. These are still fat bombs and you can eat them outright as such. The one caveat is that they are fairly strong, so eating them may not be to everybody’s taste.
Breakfast Bacon Fat Bombs
Image from A Simple Pantry
In most cases, fat bombs are sweet – partly because they are alternatives to candy and other similar snacks. But, savory fat bombs exist as well and some of those recipes can be amazing. These Breakfast Bacon Fat Bombs are one example of exactly what you can do with savory fat bombs and they are drool-worthy.
Needless to say, savory fat bombs are a little different, so they don’t involve the same general set of ingredients that most sweet fat bombs contain. That’s not a bad thing though, as the end result works really well. The style is also great if you find that you get sick of coconut oil or sweet snacks in general.
Keto Macaroon Fat Bombs
Image from The Nourished Caveman
For anybody missing macaroons on a keto diet, these Keto Macaroon Fat Bombs may be the perfect answer. I love the way that the treat actually ends up looking like a macaroon as well, rather than just being macaroon-flavored. The recipe is a little more complicated than many other fat bombs but it is still easy to achieve. Plus, it’s often worth doing a little extra work to get a truly great treat.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bombs
Image from What’s on Parker’s Plate?
I love the way that these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bombs end up looking like Reese’s Peanut Cups. It’s easy to see how that would be attractive, especially for anybody who misses those sweets. The recipe here is deceptively simple and you could make it even if you’ve never tried anything similar before.
However, the one thing to note is that you do need some type of deep cup to make the bombs. After all, you need to be able to ensure that the filling stays on the inside. Thankfully, there are inexpensive silicone molds for precisely this purpose and those can be used for regular fat bombs as well.
Vanilla Cheesecake Fat Bombs
Image from My Keto Kitchen
These Vanilla Cheesecake Fat Bombs are another example of an easy-to-prepare keto snack. In fact, the recipe itself just calls for four ingredients and you may already have some of these at hand. The nutritional information for the fat bombs is also provided, so you know exactly what to expect when eating them.
Chocolate Fudge Haystacks
Image from I Breathe I’m Hungry
These Chocolate Fudge Haystacks end up being somewhere in the middle between fat bombs and cookies. For one thing, they have a chewy texture, which you don’t typically find in fat bombs. Yet, despite this, the haystacks do have the same macro composition that you would be looking for from a fat bomb. With this in mind, they are great if you want something a little bit different than a traditional fat bomb.
Beyond all of that, the style makes these particularly easy (and fast) to make. After all, you don’t have to worry about a mold and the ‘cookies’ hold their shape nicely on their own.

Low Carb ‘Granola’ Bar Fat Bombs
Image from Wicked Stuffed
Granola bars are not a common component of a keto diet. But, these Low Carb ‘Granola’ Bar Fat Bombs are an exception to that rule. Unlike typical granola bars, the majority of calories in these bars come from fat, making them perfect for anybody following a keto diet.
On a side note, this also means that the bars are relatively low in protein – at least when compared to most other granola bars. That’s a good thing though, as you’re typically not trying to maximize protein while on keto.
Now, it is worth noting that this fat bomb recipe does require baking. There isn’t much involved and the recipe is relatively simple from start to finish. Still, the need to bake is worth mentioning, simply because most other fat bombs don’t need any cooking at all.
Low Carb Cheesecake Fat Bombs
Image from Fit to Serve
Visually, these Low Carb Cheesecake Fat Bombs look a little unusual because of the berry placed on top. Nevertheless, you could actually skip the berry and just make the fat bombs themselves, especially as the berry is just an added extra.
In many ways, the most appealing thing about this recipe is just that it is simple. So, the fat bombs themselves are fairly easy to make and they have a subtle balance of flavors. This would also make them an appealing base if you wanted to start out here and vary the flavors as you went along.
Dark Chocolate Candy with Pecans and Sea Salt
Image from Lowcarb-ology
At first glance, this Dark Chocolate Candy with Pecans and Sea Salt looks like chocolate, rather than a fat bomb. And, that’s not too surprising as cocoa does feature strongly in the recipe. Nevertheless, the finished product here is still a fat bomb and it has an attractive combination of ingredients as well.
I can imagine this particular recipe being popular for anybody who loves dark chocolate and the addition of pecans and sea salt makes the flavor profile that much more interesting again.
Peanut Butter and Cream Cheese Fat Bomb
Image from Jam Hands
Most treats that involve peanut butter also seem to rely on chocolate but these Peanut Butter and Cream Cheese Fat Bombs are an exception to that rule. Instead, these fat bombs make use of cream cheese as the other main flavor. The end result works well and it is a great alternative to chocolate.
Keto Cinnamon Fat Bombs
Image from HeartBeet
These Keto Cinnamon Fat Bombs look a little bit different than the other entries on this list – but that’s not a bad thing. Instead, the color makes them interesting, while the flavor combination is extremely appealing as well. On a side note, these fat bombs are also easy to make, so they’re a good option if you don’t want something complicated.
As you can probably guess, the shape of the fat bombs comes from the use of silicone molds. This type of mold is great for fat bombs, partly because it is so easy to get the finished product out. At the same time, the molds come in many shapes and sizes, so you can pick an option that suits the portion size and overall style that you’re interested in.
Peanut Butter Fat Bombs
Image from Low Carb Maven
These Peanut Butter Fat Bombs are a bit of fun, simply because they look like a fairly typical slice that you might find at a café. But despite that, this treat has the same general macro profile as the other fat bombs on this list.
The overall style, along with the chocolate and peanut butter flavors, make this treat great for anybody who misses conventional snacks. Besides that, the fat bomb is visually stunning, making it a great option for serving to guests.
Coconut Lime Fat Bombs
Image from Creations and Catastrophes
These Coconut Lime Fat Bombs are another option that takes advantage of the flavor of lime. I love this idea personally, as lime gives you a sharpness that you don’t find in many of the other fat bomb recipes. Besides that, coconut and lime do pair together extremely well.
Vanilla Fat Bombs Dipped in Chocolate
Image from Paleo Flourish
If you’re a fan of chocolate, then these Vanilla Fat Bombs Dipped in Chocolate could be a great fat bomb option. The recipe itself is also paleo, making it appealing for anybody on that diet as well. Like some other options on this list, the primary flavor of the fat bombs themselves is coconut, which goes perfectly with the chocolate coating.
The overall style works very well and it’s easy to see how these could become a go-to snack or dessert, even for people not following keto.
Jalapeno Popper Fat Bombs
Image from Ruled.me
Ruled.me often has amazing recipes and these Jalapeno Popper Fat Bombs are no exception to that rule. Overall, the treats are an absolute must for any bacon lover, while the addition of jalapeno makes them that much more interesting overall. Beyond all of that, the fat bombs do simply look amazing.
Peppermint Fat Bombs
Image from Ditch the Carbs
Even with two layers, these Peppermint Fat Bombs are simplicity itself. In fact, the recipe uses just four ingredients, making the fat bombs extremely easy to make. Ditch the Carbs also provides you all of the information that you need about these, including the nutritional information and specific ingredients that you can use, if you want to.
Coconut Fat Bombs
Image from Keto Connect
Most fat bombs rely on coconut to some degree or another, often in the form of coconut oil. But, these Coconut Fat Bombs take that concept a step further. In particular, the author’s key goal was to create fat bombs with an intense coconut flavor – perfect for anyone who loves coconut. After all, most other fat bombs use other flavors as well, so they don’t just taste like coconut.
The simplicity of the fat bombs is also extremely appealing. In fact, there are just three ingredients in the recipe, although some people might choose to add in sweetener as well.
Maca Cinnamon Fat Bombs
Image from Primal Edge Health
The choice of ingredients with these Maca Cinnamon Fat Bombs means that they will work for just about any type of diet – something that isn’t true for many of the other entries on this list. The recipe also has a more complex flavor profile than the title suggests, and this aspect really does make the fat bombs worth trying for yourself.
Butter Pecan and Sea Salt Fat Bombs
Image from Fluffy Chix Cook
These Butter Pecan and Sea Salt Fat Bombs are a little unusual and they are also incredibly simple. More than anything, they make a great keto snack when you don’t have much time or energy. For that matter, the recipe provided is just for a single serving, so it is focused on you making the fat bombs as you go.
If nothing else, that approach is perfect for anyone who doesn’t want fat bombs sitting around the house. After all, some people find that having treats on hand is often far too tempting.
Chocolate Coconut Fat Bombs
Image from Homemade Food Junkie
One cool thing about these Chocolate Coconut Fat Bombs is that they are textured. So, you end up with a snack that you actually chew – which is always more powerful for combating hunger. It isn’t obvious from the image but the fat bombs are also layered, so you end up with a fairly interesting treat in the end.
Now, these fat bombs are somewhat larger than many of the other options on the list. However, you can always vary the size that you make, simply by using different types of molds. This gives you the chance to alter the final product so that it meets your own needs.
Orange Chocolate Cheesecake Fat Bombs
Image from City Girl Searching
I always love fat bombs that combine different flavors and that’s precisely what these Orange Chocolate Cheesecake Fat Bombs do. At the same time, the recipe itself isn’t that complicated, so the fat bombs are easy to create from start to finish.
In this case, the shape for the fat bombs appears to have been made using a basic ice cube tray. But, of course, you could take advantage of any silicone mold or even just paper cups – depending on what you want. Because you’re working with two layers, it would be worth choosing a relatively deep mold. Still, that aspect is ultimately up to you and the fat bombs are fun either way.
There are, of course, no shortage of other fat bomb recipes out there that weren’t covered on this list. For that matter, many of the blogs featured offered a number of amazing fat bomb recipes and it was difficult to choose a single recipe to highlight.
But, if you are looking for more inspiration, there are also some amazing fat bomb cookbooks out there.
One of these is Sweet and Savory Fat Bombs, which offers 100 different fat bomb recipes. As the title suggests, the snacks cover a range of styles, including some more unusual savory options.
Because of this, the cookbook is a great way to get more inspiration. Plus, it’s always nice to have a book in your kitchen to work from.
A second cookbook to consider is A Year of Fat Bombs. In this case, there are just 52 recipes on offer. However, the cookbook still gets good reviews and has a great selection of flavor combinations.
Additionally, the style of this one means that the recipes provided are seasonal, so you can match your snacks to the time of year.
