Fat Bombs are yummy keto treat. I have several fat bomb recipes, including these Spicy Chocolate Fat Bombs, in my two cookbooks, The Big Book of KETO and The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook. But Fat Bombs are NOT A NECESSARY PART OF KETO.

There is no reason to load up on fat bombs at the end of the day just to hit your fat macro. If you are full and in ketosis, you don’t need fat bombs.

That being said, it can be very convenient to have keto friendly sweet treats prepped in your freezer whenever you want to pop one! 

Fat Bombs are a great and filling snack. They offer long lasting energy and are perfect for mid-morning/late-night snack. You may find them useful before or after your workouts to give you energy and prevent the post workout nap. If caffeine in the afternoon keeps you up all night, consider eating a fat bomb at 3 o’clock to get you through your work day.


Fat Bombs are a useful tool if you are having a hard time staying in Ketosis. If you accidentally ate too many carbs and are no longer in Ketosis, you can eat a Fat Bomb to get yourself back on track. But I would only recommend doing this if you are in Keto Emergency Mode. Reset your body for the day and then try again tomorrow.

Remember Keto is a lifestyle. It takes a lot of commitment, but it is so worth it. Your goal should be to stay within your carb limit and get enough fat from your meals that fat bombs are an unnecessary treat.

Are you having a hard time getting enough fat?

Try out these Strawberry-Lime Ice Pops from The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook or Strawberry Cream Cheese Mousse as a sweet alternative to fat bombs.
