Coconut Fat Bombs with Almond Butter and Cacao

Fat Bombs with Almond Butter


Fat is in!  I like finding tasty ways to incorporate more healthy fats into my diet.  My Coconut Fat Bombs are a great way to appeal to different tastes because they are so easy to modify from the basic recipe with your favorites.  I’ll put the basic recipe here then show some of the ways I like to change it up in step #5 below.  This is Restart/Sugar Detox friendly as well!



1 12 oz Package Coconut Flakes (unsweetened)

1/2 cup melted Coconut Oil

1 tsp Vanilla (to desired taste)

4 Tbs Grass Fed Butter (optional – decrease the amount of coconut oil and add to desired consistency)

Sea Salt Optional (to desired taste – up to 1 Tbs)

Cinnamon (optional)


  1. Lightly toast the shredded coconut to release the natural oils (260 degrees for about 5 minutes, stir every couple of minutes)
  2. Blend in a food processor until fine
  3. drizzle in the melted coconut oil and vanilla (add melted butter and/or salt if desired)
  4. continue blending until creamy – (easy to pour or spoon out –  if too thick, add additional coconut oil)
  5. OPTIONAL – Now add your favorites either to the mixture or separately into the cups:
    • “Chocolate” (100% cacao mixed into melted coconut oil)
    • Sea Salt
    • Almond Butter
    • Chopped nuts
    • blended green tipped bananas
    • Other – be creative
  6. pour into small baking tins or candy molds and freeze until they set up.
  7. sprinkle cinnamon on top and serve


The basic recipe is gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and nut free. ENJOY!
