It’s funny that many of us spent years avoiding fat at all costs when, these days, we’re understanding more all the time about the benefits of a high-fat, low-carb diet, also known as the keto diet. In this low-carb diet, 70 percent to 80 percent of your daily calories come from fat, 15 percent to 20 percent are protein and just the remainder, about 5 percent, comes from carbohydrates. For many of us, it’s a huge shift in how we were brought up eating.

If you are following a high-fat diet, then keto fat bombs are about to be your new favorite snack. So what are fat bombs? They’re similar to energy balls. But instead of relying on the carbs that make up the bulk of energy treats, like grains or rice, fat bombs are packed with — you guessed it — fat. They’re usually made up of about 80 percent fat, making them handy for a quick breakfast, pre- or post-workout snack or a little afternoon treat.

But what if you’re not on the keto diet? You can absolutely still enjoy keto fat bombs! Healthy fats should still make up between 20 percent to 30 percent of your diet, and a fat bomb is a good way to get those calories in. Bonus: Because fats break down more slowly in the digestive tract, they can actually keep you feeling full for longer!

Keto fat bombs are pretty simple. You’ll want a mix of healthy fats, like avocado, nut butters, coconut oil, cheese or butter, a low-carb flavor of some sort (think cacao powder or spices) and perhaps a low-carb ingredient that adds texture, like nuts or seeds. But to make chowing down on fat bombs easier still, I’ve rounded up my favorite fat bomb recipes from around the web. Whether you’re keto or not, you’ll love these bombs!

24 Keto Fat Bombs

1. Almond Joy Fat Bombs

If you’re a coconut fan, you’ll love these no-bake treats. Made with coconut oil, coconut milk and coconut flakes, there’s no denying that tropical flavor. Topped with a chocolate coating and almonds, these chewy fat bombs are great for satisfying a sweet tooth.

2. Almond Pistachio Fat Bombs

I love this keto-friendly take on fudge! This version is made from cacao butter and firmed coconut milk. It has no added sweeteners, but has a ton of flavor thanks to the vanilla extract, chai spice and almond extract —  yum. Topped with pistachios, this fat bomb could double as a  healthy dessert.

3. Avocado & Egg Fat Bombs and Deviled Eggs

Love deviled eggs? You’re going to enjoy these fat bombs. In this version, you’ll mix avocado chunks with egg yolks and process them along with mayo, lemon juice and seasoning for a smooth filling. Spread these onto veggie slices or, even better, fill those discarded egg white halves for some extra protein. These keep for up to 5 days, so they’re great to make and enjoy for a work week’s worth of breakfast.

4. Caramel Apple Pie Fat Bomb

Enjoy the flavors of a caramel apple pie minus the hassle with this easy fat bomb recipe. You’ll saute the apples with cinnamon while blending coconut cream, oil and butter along with toffee-flavored stevia. Pour into a silicon mold, set in the freezer and you’re done!

5. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Fat Bombs

Try a new take on chocolate chip cookie dough with these fat bombs. They’re packed with butter, cream cheese and MCT oil, plus your favorite nut butter and chocolate chips. Best of all, they’re ready in under an hour and no baking is required!

6. Chocolate Coconut Fat Bombs

Forget a long ingredients list or complicated instructions. These chocolate fat bombs are made with just five ingredients you likely already have: coconut oil, cocoa powder, raw honey, vanilla extract and salt. Even better? These keep indefinitely in the freezer. Make a massive stash and have fat bombs on hand all the time.

7. Cinnamon Bun Fat Bomb Bars

You’d be forgiven for thinking this is a sugar-laden dessert. After all, these fat bombs include not one but two types of icing! Have no fear, though. These bomb bars are super keto-friendly and made just with coconut oil, almond butter and cinnamon. Try them next time you’re in the mood for a cinnamon bun!

8. Coconut Oil Fat Bombs

Sweet refreshing coconut finished with chocolately goodness? You won’t want to skip these coconut oil fat bombs. They’re made with just a handful of ingredients, including shredded coconut, coconut oil, raw honey, dark chocolate and vanilla. Combine all the ingredients except the chocolate together to form the balls. As for the chocolate? You’ll melt that and drizzle over your fat bombs. Heck. Yes.

9. Coconut Berry Fat Bombs

Berries and coconut are always a good combo and these fat bombs are no different. Made with just four ingredients, they’re a lovely way to sweeten up an afternoon without hidden nasties.

10. Craving Buster Fat Bombs

If you’re struggling to curb sugar cravings or give processed foods the boot, these tasty fat bombs can help. Made with just three ingredients, they’re like a sugar-free version of an almond butter cup. I also love that this healthy recipe includes a 1-serving option for those times when you just need a quick fix!
