A couple of days ago I was talking with my friend Julia Neimen about keto desserts and the subject of keto fat bombs came up. Now Not all of the many fat bombs are in the dessert category but some are, and this is one of them.This Keto friendly Peanut Butter Fudge Fat Bombs recipe is always in the front of my fat bomb recipe book. From as early as I can remember I have always had a love affair with peanut butter. I made peanut butter and banana sandwiches, peanut butter and sweet pickle sandwiches, peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwiches and yes, even peanut butter and jelly sandwiches although not as often as the others.
When I adopted the Ketogenic lifestyle probably one of the first things I missed was a peanut butter snack. When I say snack, my wife would hide the peanut butter from me so that there would be some for the kids after school. Why? Because she caught me eating it with a spoon and she thought that was very strange but it explained why peanut butter was always on our shopping list. If you are a peanut butter addict you will understand, if not, no explaining will do.
So when a friend shared a copy of his recipe for Peanut Butter Fudge Fat Bombs and said I could enjoy one or two of these and remain in Ketosis I was beside myself with joy. I did tweak the recipe a tad to make it my own but it is great. I may top each bomb with half a peanut on the next batch but they are still great just the way they are.
The peanut butter must be fat free of course, and for that reason I make my own peanut butter, also it is way less expensive when you make your own and it does not take a lot of time.

You can pick up the little 12 cup rubber mini-cupcake holders at most grocery stores. They are freezer proof and some of them even work in an oven. It is good to have one or two on hand for when you want to make a supply of fat bombs. I usually like to make three kinds at the same time which will yield a total of 36 bombs, a good two to three week supply.
You will find that a fat bomb or two will help you reach your total fat goal for the day. One of the things I really like about the Keto Peanut Butter Fudge Fat Bombs is that they contain 29.7g. of fat with only 4g. of carbs but 1.4g.of fiber which gives them a net carb of 2.6 per bomb and the protein is 5.4 which is a nice ratio of fat to protein mix.
If you are following a ketogenic lifestyle be sure to make a few fats bombs. I will continue to post the recipes I use so that you can build up a recipe book. These not only help you meet your good fat goals but they are a nice little treat when you want something special. I save mine to enjoy when my wife wants to have one of her desserts.
Chefs note: When these are hard, pop them out of the rubber mold and place them into a zip-lick freezer bag. They will keep in the freezer for up to two weeks but don’t worry, once you have tasted one, they will be gone before you ever get near the end of the second week.
