low carb fat bombs
Even if you’re not doing the full Keto plan, going low-carb means you’ll want to indulge in healthy fats to keep you full and satisfy those cravings. Here are my top 4 low carb fat bombs that are just that — the bomb! Whether you have a savory craving or a sweet tooth, I have a little something for everyone.
These 4 low carb fat bomb recipes are easy to make and do not require a lot of special ingredients or know-how. Starting with one of my faves, the low carb cream cheese bombs, that you could even make ahead and bring to a party — they are that good. Another party fave of mine is the pecan oil nut spread, which tastes equally good on a low-carb cracker as it does a piece of celery. And then, who could resist my port wine low carb dark chocolate fat bombs, which I love to make at Christmas or any special occasion where dark chocolate and wine should be on the menu. Finally, I’ve got another boozy favorite, with the bourbon balls (that might be too good to really call a fat bomb) but I’ve included them here anyway because they are delicious!
