Fat bombs are bite-sized snacks that are sugar-free, very low in carbohydrates, and high in fat, and they can be sweet or savory. They’re usually designed to help keep you in ketosis, but you don’t have to be in ketosis to enjoy fat bombs. Our bodies need fat to thrive, so there’s an easy Paleo-friendly adaptation included below.
And what better way to enjoy a fat bomb than with the famous flavors of Nutella! Nutty, earthy, and distinct hazelnut flavor paired with rich chocolate are what give Nutella its nutella-ness, and those foods are both keto and Paleo-friendly. Just add some creamy coconut oil and whatever sweetener you prefer, depending on if you’d prefer to keep it keto or Paleo, and you’re in business!
This dessert is gluten-free, grain-free, and refined sugar-free. So no matter who you’re cooking for, there’s something for everyone to love!
