If you’ve visited my site before you probably know that I have a small obsession with keto fat bombs.
It’s like I’ve challenged myself to make a huge fat bomb collection here on my blog and that probably wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
I just get bored, very, very quickly.
There are only a few recipes that I continue to make over and over again.
Most of the time after I made a recipe, I’ll eat all of the fat bombs I made and move on to new recipes.
I get excited about creating new ones and I love to mix things up.
That’s also why most of my fat bomb recipes only yield 4-8 servings.
Because most of the keto fat bomb recipes I post only take between 10-15 minutes of active work, it’s pretty easy to try out new recipes.
These keto brownie bites are no exception – 5 minutes of active work and probably the ones with the fewest carbs I posted so far!
Only 0.5g net carbs per ball and 6g of healthy fats – so absolutely perfect to increase your fat intake if you’re trying to get into ketosis (or stay there).
KETO BROWNIE BITES INGREDIENTS:
(You can find the exact amounts needed on the recipe card at the end of this post!)
- finely ground almond flour
- softened butter:
I recommend to buy grass-fed butter – it’s higher in certain micronutrients and healthy fats and it contains a better ratio of omega-3 vs. omega-6 fatty acids.The butter should be soft for this recipe: leave the butter at room temperature for 20-30 minutes for the desired consistency.
- powdered erythritol (confectioners’ erythritol):
Erythritol is my favorite keto-friendly sweetener:
– it doesn’t spike your blood sugar,
– it’s completely safe and
– has a very natural sweet taste.Because of the natural origin and natural production process (fermentation), I also consider erythritol to be paleo-friendly.
Plus: Recent studies even show it’s actually GOOD for your teeth!
Even though I’m a little biased towards erythritol, I’m not discriminating against other keto-friendly sweeteners that won’t spike your blood sugar.
Keep in mind though, that you might have to adjust the amount used because erythritol isn’t as sweet as other sweeteners out there.
Erythritol is about 70% as sweet as normal table sugar whereas other keto-friendly sweeteners like monk fruit and stevia are usually much sweeter than sugar.
Taste a tiny amount of the mass before oversweetening it and adjust accordingly!
- baking cacoa powder (dutch processed cacoa powder):
dutch processed cacoa powder has a very strong chocolate taste and because of that it’s ideal for low carb baking.You only need a very tiny amount to make delicious chocolatey keto treats.
- sugar-free vanilla extract
HOW TO MAKE KETO BROWNIE BITES:
1. Mix ingredients:
Mix all of the ingredients using a spoon in a bowl until you get a smooth mass.
To fully combine the softened butter with the rest of the ingredients, I recommend pressing the backside of the spoon against the “wall” of the bowl while you stir.
Imagine using the spoon as if you were to apply the fat bomb mass with a spatula.
Watch the instruction video embedded a bit further down to see the process “in action”.
2. Form balls:
Scoop out equal parts of the mass and form small balls using your hands.
If the fat bomb mass is too soft and you have a hard time rolling the balls, place the mass in your freezer for approx. 10 minutes and it should be a lot easier after that.
Chill in your fridge for approx. 30 minutes before enjoying your keto brownie bites with a hot cup of tea or coffee!
Cover with plastic wrap and store in your fridge for at least 3-4 days.
One keto brownie bite (approx. 0.5oz/15g) has 0.5g net carbs (1.7g total carbs and 1.2g dietary fiber), 6g fat, 2.5g protein, and 68 calories.
Keep in mind that the nutrition info per serving may change depending on the size of the balls you make.
(I try to be as accurate as possible with this information, but values may vary because of natural occurring fluctuations and different products used.)
Q: How do you include Erythritol in your calculations?
A: The short answer is: I don’t, and I can tell you why.
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol which your body can’t digest.
If you ingest it, it won’t spike your blood sugar & it won’t release insulin (which is a good thing if you want to stay in ketosis).
It passes through our system basically “untouched”.
Because of this, you can subtract the carbs from erythritol completely, which is what I always do.
Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl until you get a smooth mass.
Scoop out equal parts of the mass and form small balls with your hands.
If the mass is too soft to easily form balls (this could be the case if the butter you used was very soft or you live in a very warm place), place the mass in your freezer for approx. 10 minutes and it’ll be much easier to roll the balls.
Chill the balls in your fridge for approx. 30 minutes before enjoying them with a cup of coffee or tea.
Cover with plastic wrap and store in your fridge for up to 3-4 days.
