Filling the molds

So I adapted a recipe yesterday from Kimspired DIY‘s site where she did a low carb, keto version of Butterfinger fat bombs-and I made a couple of changes.

This easy, no-bake, sugar-free recipe will have your tastebuds tingling with delight! If you like chocolate, peanut butter, and pecans, you are in the right place!

I took her recipe and modified it to what I had on hand, as per usual. Where she called for chopped peanuts, I used pecans.

My dad has about 7 pecan trees so I have bags of unshelled pecans I’ve been trying to shell and use up. Plus, I needed a small recipe to make so I could check the status of my almond flour again.

Previously I did a post where a recipe I made failed, I wasn’t sure if it was the baking soda or the almond flour? Well, I discovered after tasting my creation yesterday-almond flour is fine!

Where she used Lily’s chocolate chips, I used Aldi’s dark chocolate chips-they are pretty low in carbs and sugar, so I didn’t think the tiny bit that’s on each fat bomb would matter much.

As long as you don’t go crazy and eat more than one at a time, I mean this is supposed to help curb your sweet cravings, not replace a meal! So mindful snacking, please!

Everything else about her recipe is the same, although I may not have measured accurately on the cream cheese, they turned out yummy just the same.

Here is the recipe the way I did it:

  • 2 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 C Low carb peanut butter-I used this
  • 2 Tbsp. Pyure granulated (I didn’t have any keto confectioner’s sugar) sweetener
  • 1/2 C almond flour-Baker’s Corner-(Aldi brand)
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped pecans
  • 1/4 C Baker’s Corner-(Aldi brand)
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil-any brand as long as it’s unrefined (I use Tropical Plantation)
  • silicone candy molds

A note about coconut oil. As long as you use unrefined, virgin, chemical-free (preferably cold-pressed) coconut oil, you can use any brand.

I use any brand of cream cheese as well. Most of the time, I get mine from Walmart, Aldi, or Win-co. Cream cheese is one of those “good fats” you can have on Keto.

Ok, the directions are so simple. Mix everything but your chocolate chips and coconut oil in a medium-size bowl, press the mixture into silicone candy mold leaving room for the chocolate layer. Set molds in the freezer while you melt the chocolate.

Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil and spoon on top of frozen mixture, then set back in the freezer for at least an hour. Pop them out and store back in the freezer for quick snacks.

Once removed from molds this is what they look like!

Easy peasy, right?!!

Give them a try and tell me what you think about them. To me, they still taste closer to Reese’s than Butterfinger but hey, you’re eating keto candy so…that’s something!

  1. Where do you get your coconut oil, and what brand, please? (This is Margaret, who was formerly SK’s caretaker. I found this e-address from your FB page after she mentioned her “friend Kim”‘s blog.)

    1. Oh, hey Margaret! I know who you are, silly! I get it at Walmart in a two-pack. It’s like $17 but I use it EVERY day! It’s called Tropical Plantation. 😊 You always want to use unrefined, virgin coconut oil, make sure you use a clean utensil every time you use it-you don’t want to introduce germs back into the container.

    1. What?? You have cut me to the core, jk. I guess you haven’t been following me for long, I gush about fat bombs all the time! They can be sweet or savory, I usually pick sweet! It’s our way of having sweet treats that are perfectly “legal” because they are healthy! If you have trouble eating enough fat on the keto diet, these are for you!

      1. Oh no I have seen you write about them before. Sorry, I should have said I just never had before you, been following you for a little while now (no idea how long, memory is awful!) In the UK they just don’t seem to be a ‘thing’. Maybe I need to get out more.

    1. Absolutely! Leave out the chocolate or try sugar-free butterscotch chips or whatever you like-sugar-free peanut butter chips. Any nuts will do, I just used pecans because I don’t like peanuts, but I had almonds and walnuts I could have used too. Let me know what you try and how you like them!

        1. Thank you, it really is! I love fat bombs, I’m always looking for new ones to try!
