Fat bombs are wonderful for newbies to keto and those in maintenance mode. Fat bombs give a boost of healthy fat, protein and a small amount of carbs. They’re the perfect go to snack, breakfast on the run or a saviour for the keto traveller! These tasty fat bombs must be kept in the refrigerator as they start to melt at room temperature.

If you wanted to add a little more structure to these you can simply melt a dark chocolate (80% or higher) and dip the balls into the chocolate. Put them in the fridge to harden the chocolate. This will give them more time out of the fridge before they start to melt.
