Chocolate Carrot Cake Fat Bombs!
Today, we’re making chocolate carrot cake
fat bombs, and we’re starting right now.
Hey, everybody. Welcome to A.D. Keto. I’m Aaron. This is your weekly dose of all things
ketogenic diet. Today, it’s another
installment of #ILIKETOEAT, and we’re
making chocolate carrot cake fat bombs.
So the carrot cake portion of these fat
bombs is a little bit of a cheat,
because I am using what I received in
the July Keto Krate from Keto Love
It’s a carrot cake
almond butter. I have no affiliation with
these guys, but you can check out their
website at keto.love. Also gonna need
coconut oil and some unsweetened baking
cocoa, as well as some truvia, or stevia,
or your sweetener of choice, actually. And,
a silicon fat bomb mold. Shout out to
Matt and Megha at Keto Connect for
turning me on to this guy. It’s awesome. I
used to have other little molds I used
for my fat bombs, but this is now my
absolute favorite, and I use nothing else.
Very durable. Very easy to clean. Love it.
I’ll put a link to it in the description.
So there are several methods to making
fat bombs. I’ve seen people make fat
bombs similar to this using the stove,
where they put the ingredients into a
saucepan, heat them up, get them all
liquidy, and then dump them into the
silicone mold. But I have found that
putting everything into a measuring cup,
and microwaving it, makes for an easier
time, because it’s already in the
container, and it’s got a little spout.
You can pour it right into the fat
bomb mold. So I’m going to use this, then
microwave the ingredients. So to start,
we’re gonna scoop out half a cup of
coconut oil. Next we’re going to put this
entire four-ounce container of Keto Love carrot cake almond butter in with our
coconut oil. It smells good.
I’ve never had this before so this is
kind of… I’m going in blind here, people.
Hopefully this turns out well. If not, oh
Ted is freaking out lying in the sun
just yowling. I don’t understand what’s
wrong with him. So this recipe is
actually a modification of the tried-and-true fat bomb recipe I’ve used for
months and months, which is just coconut
oil, peanut butter, and the next two
ingredients. One of them is a tablespoon
of unsweetened baking cocoa, and then the
last ingredient is your sweetener.
I prefer Truvia. And I have seen recipes
that say four scoops, but I am going to
stick with about two and a half, because
I’ve found four is a little much for me.
)kay, and then this concoction goes into
the microwave for 30 seconds.
Okay, so we’ve taken the mixture out of
the microwave. We’re gonna stir it. It
feels like it might need another 30
seconds or so. That might not have been
enough time. We are gonna put this back
in for another 15-20 seconds. All right,
let’s try it again. So our mixture has
been in the microwave for about a minute.
I am gonna stir it up. If you have chunks
in there, it’s okay. I’ve found that it gives
you a nice little chunky surprise,
sometimes. So we will start putting this
stuff in. One more
pro-tip, which I also gleaned from Keto
Connect: Get your ice cube tray or get
the tray that holds your ice cubes OUT of
the freezer BEFORE you put the silicone
mold in. So put this right in the
ice tray. I cannot stress how
important this step is, because I’ve made
many a mess trying to do it after-the-fact, and the stuff just kind of spills
all over. So you want to fill them up
about half way to start. Oh I know I’m
gonna have a chunky one there. I saw a big chunk… Oh, another chunky one.
That was a sloppy one. You know, I’m gonna give this another stir now that
we’re getting toward the bottom. This may be the
reason that people put it on the stove
and make sure it’s all liquid. Maybe I
should do that next time, just because
this, while convenient,
this method does leave you with maybe a little
bit of chunkiness at the bottom. Chunky
Bottom. As you can see my… looks like
some of my sweetener and these big
chunks have kind of settled toward the
bottom, which, you know, is okay. alright so
there you have it. After you load this
thing up, it’s got to be in the freezer
for a couple hours. I found that two or
three hours is plenty. So we’ll check
back in two or three hours, and see how
these things are looking. Alright, so it’s
been about an hour. Let’s grab those fat
bombs out of the freezer.
Coconut oil tends to set very quickly, so
as you can see here, they are… and you
just kind of pop them out, and there they
are. And I like to put them into a
ziplock bag for safe keeping, put them
right back in the freezer. Can I try to
pop one? Sure! And there you have it. A
ziplock bag full of chocolate carrot
cake fat bombs. I’m gonna try this one.
I definitely can taste the carrot cake.
And that’s gonna do it for this episode.
I’m gonna put these back in the freezer.
