Keto-friendly nut butter bombs
I know people have very different views on how much fat to eat in a day, but because keto this and keto that is so popular right now, I wanted to share this keto-friendly recipe with you all. These chocolatey treat bombs are completely free of refined carbohydrates and sugar and the healthy fat in them helps you to feel full and satisfied with just a small amount. You definitely don’t need to be on a low carb or ketogenic diet to enjoy them, I’m not, and just to make sure I’m not endorsing for any particular diet with this recipe. Just sharing a mouth-watering recipe with you!
You can use whatever nut butter you prefer and choose between almond and coconut flour. Also, seed butters work perfectly, if you can’t or don’t want to use nuts. With erythritol you can create completely sugar-free and low-carb bombs (remember also choose low-carb chocolate for coating!), but if you aren’t counting carbs/ following sugar-free diet, coconut sugar is a really tasty and good option. Check the sweetness of the dough after mixing everything together and add more if needed.
Ingredients (15-20 pieces):
3 dl smooth, unsweetened nut/ seed butter of your choice (optional: more for drizzling)
2 ½ dl almond or coconut flour
1/2 – ¾ dl erythritol or some other sweetener of your choice, use coconut sugar if the end result doesn’t have to be low-carb (the amount depends of nut butter and flour you’re using, so add little by little)
2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
100 g dark chocolate (the darker the better, choose the one you like the most and would normally eat)
1 tbsp coconut oil
salt flakes, shredded coconut, nut/ seed butter for topping, if desired
Optional: add 1 tsp cinnamon/ 1 tbsp cacao powder/ 1 tsp instant coffee mixed with a splash of water/ ½ tsp cardamom for extra taste
- In a bowl, combine nut/ seed butter, /almond/ coconut flour, sweetener of your choice, vanilla extract and salt (+extra flavor if using). Stir with a big spoon until the dough is smooth. If it’s too dry/ crumbly, add more nut/ seed butter. If it’s too sticky, add a little bit more flour. If the dough is too hard to mix, warm it a little bit and stir again. Check the sweetness and add more if needed.
- Line a tray with parchment paper. Using a spoon and your hands, form mixture into balls. Then press down lightly to flatten them a little bit and place on a tray separately.
- Put the tray in a freezer and freeze until firm. This takes at least an hour.
- Whisk together melted chocolate and coconut oil in a small bowl.
- Using two forks, dip balls in chocolate until fully coated then return to tray. Drizzle with salt, shredded coconut or nut/ seed butter, if you want. Put the tray back into freezer until chocolate sets, this doesn’t take more than 10 minutes.
Serve cold, but let thaw couple of minutes before serving and store any leftovers in the freezer.
