Default Holiday Treats

Hi All,

Speaking of holiday treats, don't forget what the Primal/
ancestral diet crowd (yes, me) calls "Fat Bombs"!

Hi Fat, Low Carb. Yum! (And they are pretty easy to make!)


From the first hit above:

Each of these fat bombs contain:
1 gram of carbs
14 grams of fat

Fat bomb recipe:

Makes around 24 bombs


185 grams coconut oil
50 grams nut butter (almond or macadamia)
4 to 6 teaspoons xylitol or equivalent sweetness using stevia (sweeten
to taste)
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
125 grams unsalted butter
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract/essence


Melt all ingredients together in a pot. I left the nut butter till
last to create a swirl effect.
Cool mixture slightly and pour into ice-cube trays or silicone moulds.
Put into freezer to set for a few hours.
Once set, pop them out of the mould and place in freezer bags or a
plastic container for a quick and easy snack.

Each of these fat bombs contain:

1 gram of carbs
14 grams of fat


You can also make them a little more gourmet by adding a few other
ingredients such as coffee, dried coconut flakes, nuts, cocoa nibs etc.

Some of us can't digest fat very well.
