Fat Bombs (Keto, Vegan, No Bake)

Quick and easy homemade chocolate fat bombs – with just 3 ingredients and NO baking required!

Chocolate Keto Fat Bombs

What Are Fat Bombs?

Low carb, keto and vegan friendly no-bake treats, fat bombs are typically made with ingredients such as nut butters or coconut oil, cocoa powder, cream cheese or avocado, and little to no sugar.

You might have recently been seeing fat bombs trending ALL over facebook and social media, and so many of you have commented or emailed me to ask if I have any fat bomb recipes here on the blog.

It turns out that I’ve actually been a fan of the concept since long before it became popular.

One of my favorite snacks a few years ago was to simply freeze balls of coconut butter – I called them coconut melties, which I still think sounds like a much more appealing name than fat bomb. Oh well.

And one of my current favorite snacks is to mix peanut butter with chia seeds and cocoa powder then roll it into balls.

Or just eat the dough… depends on how lazy I feel!

Fat bombs are the perfect snack for anyone who tends to like desserts that are extremely rich but not super sweet.

Since they’re so low in sugar,fat bombs are great for eating any time of the day, either on their own or as part of a meal – breakfast, afternoon, post-workout, or as a nighttime healthy snack instead of chips or ice cream.

Are Fat Bombs Healthy?

I know people have very different views on how much fat to eat in a day, so while my own diet is pretty high in fat—as shown in the post I wrote on What I Eat In A Day—it will of course depend on your own personal views and dietary needs.

These treats are not only high in heart-healthy fat, they’re also completely free of refined carbohydrates and sugar, and the fat helps you to feel full and satisfied with just a small amount, so it’s not like cookies or candy where you could eat a ton and yet somehow still be just as hungry as before you started.

As with anything, moderation is key for these, but they’re so filling that it’s much easier to feel satisfied even after just a small amount.

If you’d prefer a lower-fat chocolate treat, I recommend these Low Fat Raw Chocolate Fudge Balls.

Fat Bombs, Keto Bombs, Or Fat Fudge?

They’re actually just three different names for the same thing. You definitely don’t need to be on a low carb or ketogenic diet to enjoy them, and I’m not endorsing or advocating for any particular diet in this post.

Although my own diet isn’t low carb and you won’t see me giving up my Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies any time soon, I am still crazy about these high fat treats as well!

(Note: If you are on a low carb diet and find yourself craving chocolate chip cookies, be sure to try these Keto Cookies.)

One of the best parts about the recipe is that it’s so easily customizable to make different fat bomb flavors.

Try using different sweeteners, add a few drops of pure vanilla or pure peppermint extract, change up the nut butter or sub coconut butter for either the nut butter or oil.

Fat Bomb Flavors – The Recipes

The above link includes recipes for different flavors such as Peanut Butter, Pistachio, Strawberry, Gingerbread, Banana, and Coconut Fat Bombs.

One of my favorites is peanut butter fat bombs because they taste like a Reese’s peanut butter cup, but if you want something lower in carbs, they are great with macadamia nut butter as well.

Chocolate Fat Bombs

These Chocolate Fat Bombs Can Be:



Low Carb

No Bake

Soy Free

Gluten Free

Sugar Free

*If you need the keto fat bombs to be nut free, simply use this recipe for Sugar Free Chocolate Chips instead of the recipe below, and freeze in either an ice cube tray or a small container, then cut up into squares. Store leftovers in the freezer, because coconut oil melts at room temperature.

Fat Bombs (Keto, Vegan, No Bake)

Quick and easy homemade chocolate fat bombs, with just 3 ingredients.
4.96/5 (75)
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 1 recipe (depends on shape)


  • 1/2 cup nut butter of choice or coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • stevia to taste, or 1 tbsp liquid sweetener of choice
  • optional, I like to add 1/8 tsp salt


  • Stir all ingredients together until smooth. If too dry (depending on nut butter used), add additional coconut oil if needed. Pour into a small container, ice cube trays, candy molds, or this silicone mini cupcake tin. Freeze to set. Because coconut oil softens when warm, it’s best to store these in the freezer.

    Was a lttle worried mine was pourable before baking… Plus put 10 drops now organic non gmo stevia in mine. Baked it an extra 10 min its delicious.

  2. Jane R says

    I’m assuming that MCT oil would work as a coconut oil sub? The recipe looks great and there are some lovely comments!

  3. Rai says

    I loved this!! It’s so yummy! I used half measurement of stevia and that worked perfectly for me. I just want to eat them all at once. Can you tell me if 1 serving is equal to one little bomb?

  4. Christine says

    These were delicious! So easy to make. I had cashew butter on hand and used a truvia packet as sweetener. Just delicious!

  5. Christena says

    Can you just use regular butter instead of a nut butter? Trying to use what I have on hand. Thanks!

  6. Lorraine says

    I will only eat rich dark chocolate usually only when made on site at a specialty store so I was so skeptical it would taste good. I’m trying to go Keto and found this to be pretty good. Not my high end chocolate but a better choice for me right now. Thank you for all of your ideas!
