Hey guys! I told you I’d be posting more keto posts! Today I tried out another recipe from Keto Connect: Almond Joy fat bombs!
As I’ve said before, I don’t have a huge sweet tooth so I don’t look for sweet recipes often. But, one of the women in my office is celebrating a birthday next week and she just started keto and wants to keep it keto. I figured fat bombs are the perfect birthday treat! So I went to work researching recipes.
My criteria was simple: I needed to have the ingredients at home. I stumbled upon Keto Connect’s Almond Joy fat bombs and I had all of the ingredients! You can find the original recipe here but I tweaked a couple of things for mine.
- 75 grams unsweetened coconut flakes
- 2 ounces coconut milk
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 20 drops sweet leaf, vanilla
- 1/4 tsp xantham gum
Optional chocolate glaze:
- 1 ounce unsweetened bakers chocolate
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 10 drops sweet leaf, chocolate
- Put coconut flakes, coconut milk, coconut oil and sweet leaf drops into a small pan and heat on low.
- After the mixture has cooked for a few minutes add xantham gum and stir.
- Place mixture firmly into tray mold. (I use a silicone tray tray mold but the Keto Connect website recommend lining a pan with parchment paper and cutting the fat bombs into squares later. I wanted to skip the extra steps.)
- Place the fat bombs in the freezer to set. I let them sit for about 20 minutes.
- Melt the chocolate, coconut oil and sweet leaf drops in a microwave safe dish. I used a measuring cup for the ease of the pouring spout.
- Take the fat bombs out of the freezer, firmly press almonds into the fat bombs and cover with the chocolate glaze.
- Place the fat bombs back into the freezer and wait about 30 minutes for the chocolate to set. (If you have self control and don’t want to eat them right away store them in the fridge after the chocolate sets.)
This recipe is so easy to make!
Actually, the most difficult part of this recipe is waiting for them to cool in the freezer!
The real test was whether or not my husband liked them because Almond Joys are his favorite candy.
The verdict? He loved them! Ding ding ding, we have a winner for my coworker’s birthday! Now since my husband ate all the ones I made I’ll have to make more…
Have you tried to make your favorite candy into a fat bomb? I hope you enjoyed this post!
