fudge-fat-bombs

Chocolatey and sweet fat bombs. As their name suggests, they taste just like a piece of fudge, but without the refined sugar.

Fat bombs have become a staple snack in our house. We tend to eat a higher fat and lower carb diet due in part to the satiating effect of fat, but mostly due to the fact that fat just plain tastes REALLY GOOD. Plus, as I discussed in my post for my Lemon Bar Fat Bombs recipe, saturated fat is now being widely accepted as being part of a healthy diet. So, say a big "helllllooo" and "I love you" to that coconut oil of yours.

In this recipe, I use either powdered stevia or monk fruit sweetener for sweetness and think both taste delicious.

Stevia

Stevia is a sweetener that is derived from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana. It contains 0 calories, 0 grams of carbohydrates, and rates at a 0 on the glycemic index, making it a safe option for diabetics.

Monk Fruit Sweetener

Monk fruit sweetener, like that of stevia, contains 0 calories, 0 grams of carbohydrates, and rates at a 0 on the glycemic index, making it another safe option for diabetics. Monk fruit is grown in south Asia and has been used as a natural sweetener for centuries. Personally, I prefer the flavor and texture of monk fruit sweetener as it is very similar to that of traditional sugar. Some people find the flavor of stevia to be a bit harsh so, if you’re in that category, I recommend giving monk fruit sweetener a try. This is the brand I use and love.

This recipe is keto, low-carb, paleo, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, and refined-sugar-free.
