The 1980s-1990s diet industry marketing did a great job of placing fear in the hearts of everyone where fat is concerned. The old idea that “fat makes you fat”, has been a hard one to shake off for many people. You can still see “low-fat” products lining the grocery store even though we know now that fats are essential for hormone balance, brain health, energy, and metabolism. Now, the catch is that NOT all fats are created equal and higher-fat diets work best as it relates to weight-loss goals when used strategically in a low carb diet.
Fat-Bombs are a Keto spin on a no-bake energy ball. It allows you to hit your daily fat macros (70%), crushes cravings, boosts energy pre a workout, increases plant-based protein intake (20-30% daily), and simply satisfy the taste buds. I have 5 quick and easy Killer Keto No-Bake Fat-Bomb Recipes that are perfect to grab when you need a little whole-foods energy boost.

Place everything but the chocolate chips into a bowl and mix until flour is well blended and the batter is creamy, a standing mixture is nice if you have one.
Sprinkle in the chocolate chips and mix so the chips are evenly distributed throughout the mixture. Set the bowl in the fridge to chill for 15 minutes which makes rolling the balls easier.
