Adaptogenic Keto Fat Bombs

By Worker Bee

Inline_Final_Image_BallsThe basic ketogenic diet garners about 65-75% energy needs from fat sources. While a good Primal diet offers much in the way of healthy, varied fats, with keto it’s helpful to have extra strategies for incorporating additional good fats. That’s where the keto fat bomb comes in.

But that doesn’t mean shoring yourself up for anything tasteless or unappealing. Many fat bomb recipes—like this one—aren’t even savory. In fact, with just enough sweetness, the prevailing taste of this keto fat bomb is rich, cocoa goodness—deepened by an earthy nuance of chaga mushroom mix.

And here’s what makes these particular fat bombs so special. Not only do you gain all the major benefits of collagen and a healthy dose of nutrient-dense fat from coconut oil and almond butter, you’ll also get the nutritional magic of adaptogenic chaga. One of the true superfoods, chaga is a fungus long used in traditional medicine that is rich in both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phenols. It has the highest ORAC value of any natural food and is rich in major and trace minerals. So, you can be sure this keto fat bomb offers more than its share of both delicious flavor and essential nutrients.

Mix 1/2 cup almond butter, 1/2 cup coconut oil, and 1 Tbsp. coconut flour. Place the “dough” in the refrigerator or freezer until it firms up enough to scoop and roll into balls.


Roll into 1 1/2-inch balls and put them back in the freezer to firm up (about an hour).

  1. Will these be fine in the refrigerator over the course of a week?

    1. Ditto–love to know how exactly how fatty these bombs are.

  2. Would love to have the nutritional facts on these – they’re ridiculously delicious!

  3. Mark, I usually love your website and I’ve enjoyed your recipes. I’ve also been practicing herbal medicine (L. Ac.) for the better part of 20 years. Please remove chaga from your recipe because it is an endangered plant. Use eleuthero, ashwangandha, cordyceps mycelium, or lion’s mane. All would be acceptable, more sustainable replacements. Thank you and the United Plant Savers thank you.

  4. These are delicious. I’ve been meaning to make them for a while and finally put them together. What a mistake I made waiting! These are awesome thank you so much for the free recipe. I’m grateful!

  5. Substituted the chaga with Dandy Blend and used silicon molds to form more of a reese’s pieces shape. Big summertime hit!
