What are fat bombs?

Fat bombs are typically small bites of quick energy. Just like energy balls offer up amazing energy but are typically made with dates, fat bombs offer up energy using fat sources.

The fat sources can vary from nut butters to coconut oil, but are usually low in sugar and carbohydrates. Because they are lower in carbs they make a great keto snack! While I don’t follow a keto regiment, I do love to be fat fueled because it helps balance blood sugar.

Are fat bombs healthy?

I see fat as an important part of a balanced diet. I don’t avoid it, but everyone will have their own definition of what is healthy. In our fat bombs today we use natural peanut butter and coconut oil, which I am all for!

When I choose a snack blood sugar balance is often the prime consideration I think of, and fat is always a must in that situation. It helps to curb hunger pangs.

Peanut butter and jelly fat bombs for pre-workout snacks

Fat bombs have been my go-to pre-workout snack lately. Some mornings have me out the door really early to teach yoga. On those mornings, the last thing I want to do it cook a full breakfast.

Peanut butter and jelly fat bombs give me lasting energy and keep hunger away! Isn’t it the worst when you’re mid workout and just thinking about food? I’ve been there. These fat bombs help give me sustainable energy.

How to store fat bombs

The best place to store fat bombs are in the fridge or the freezer. They will last for 7 days in the fridge, but up to 3 months in the freezer. They defrost quickly from the freezer, and are even delicious when eaten frozen!

Because of the coconut oil and peanut butter mixture, if you don’t keep them chilled they will soften and eventually melt.
