If you're looking to satiate cravings and also enjoy a luscious keto-friendly treat, these vegan, dairy-free, sugar-free and gluten-free chocolate fat bombs should be your choice of pleasure. And, this ketogenic fat bomb recipe by MISS FOX only takes a few minutes to prepare. The raw cacao will give you a caffeine boost to increase alertness, as well as highly-protective antioxidants for more radiant skin. We’ve also included adaptogens in the form of reishi mushroom for a cognitive boost.
To a saucepan on very low heat, add:
Half a cup of organic cold pressed coconut oil (We love “Loving Earth” Coconut Oil)
Half a cup of any nut butter or combination of them (We love “Alfies” organic almond butter)
1 tablespoon raw Cacao powder or more/less to taste (We love *Loving Earth” raw cacao)
½ tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp reishi mushroom and anything else you like (nutmeg, pepper, matcha etc)
Add a little half pinch of salt if using unsalted nut butter
Add approx ½ cup toasted organic hazelnuts, or nuts of choice
Add a tablespoon of raw cacao nibs, or less to taste.
Add 1-2 heaped teaspoons Xylitol (natural sweetener from Birch Bark)
Add 10 drops of Caramel stevia natural sweetner (or plain Stevia)
Melt over low heat until fragrant and combined, taking care not to burn. Pour into ice cube trays or a greaseproof paper lined tin or pyrex. Sprinkle over cacao nibs. Freeze for 4+ hours then pop out and cut into pieces. Store in the freezer or fridge in a container for up to 2 months.
Savour a piece when you need an indulgent treat, and be sure not to eat them at night, or remove the cacao from the recipe altogether if you are sensitive to stimulants.
