The Best Peanut Butter Fat Bombs; Cold, Creamy, Peanut Buttery Goodness! Only 1/3 net carb each! Or use almond butter!
These are The Best Peanut Butter Fat Bombs ever!
And these are the best Peanut Butter and Jelly Fat Bombs!
I am not a big fat bomb eater but sometimes they are just the ticket.
I usually cook for the whole family and they are not all Keto. Most of the time it works fine to make a meat and vegetable we can all eat and I just add a side of carbs for them.
Sometimes I do need a bit more fat or something sweet sounds so good. These are the perfect thing to reach for at those times.
They are so creamy, cold and peanut buttery. Mmmm!
My favorite way to eat them it to just pop the whole thing in my mouth and let it dissolve slowly.
So many fat bombs are coconut oil based and so, well coco-nutty. Even though I do like coconut, I just don’t like so much.
I wondered if I could replace half of the coconut with butter and wow, yes, I can! It could really all be replaced but I like the half and half.
I did not label these as “Keto” fat bombs because, technically, peanuts are legumes and therefore not strict Keto. SO! If you are strict Keto, you will want to replace the peanut butter with almond butter or even sunflower butter.
If you are dirty Keto, low carb or know that peanuts do not bother you (sometimes legumes are inflammatory), than by all means, use the peanut butter.
This is the lowest carb brand I have found and it is very good too. It is $3 a jar at my Walmart and a 16oz jar will make 1 1/2 batches of this recipe.
A few notes:
I like Erythritol. It does not have the cooling effect (to me, anyway) and I think it tastes good.
Use whatever sweetener you like but any changes made will change the total carb, fat, etc count.
You could use salted butter if that is what you have. Reduce or omit the sea salt in the recipe.

Print the recipe just a little farther down.
1 cup Great Value organic stir peanut butter
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup unsalted butter
5 Tbsp Erythritol or your choice of sweetener
4 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp sea salt
Melt peanut butter, coconut oil and butter in microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each until smooth and blended.
You could also melt in a double broiler on the stove.
Add sweetener, vanilla and salt and blend well again.
Pour into mini muffin tin or molds of your choice.
Freeze for 30 minutes or completely hardened.
They easily pop out with a sharp knife gently pressed between the bomb and the edge.
They need to be kept cold so keep in refrigerator or freezer.
Makes 24 fat bombs
Note; Nutritionix doesn’t deduct the Erythritol from the carbs so net carbs would be .33 gram for each fat bomb.
Based on a yield of 2 cups divided equally among 24 fat bombs, and using the exact ingredients I used, each contains 140 calories, 14g fat, 2.6g protein, 5.3g carbs, 4g carbs from Erythritol, 1g fiber, = .33 g NET CARBS each bomb
