Dark Chocolate Raspberry Fat Bombs-Keto Recipes

Whether you decide to follow the fat fast or you are just looking for healthy low-carb treats, these fat bombs are a great option.




Compared to my other recipes, they are quite big but you can make them half size. You can use any berries – raspberries, blackberries, blueberries or strawberries – all are delicious when covered in chocolate! I decided to make my own dark chocolate but you can use any high-quality dark chocolate with at least 85% cacao.

Ingredients (makes 14 servings)

Homemade Chocolate:
½ cup cocoa butter (120 g / 4.2 oz)
3 tbsp coconut oil, extra virgin (40 g / 1.4 oz)
4.2 oz unsweetened dark chocolate, 100% cacao (120 g)
⅓ cup unsweetened cacao powder (30 g / 1 oz)
1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp unsweetened vanilla extract (you can make your own)
½ – ¾ cup Erythritol or Swerve, powdered (80-120 g / 2.8-4.2 oz) – depends on you palate
20-25 drops Stevia extract (Clear / Vanilla / Chocolate) or other healthy low-carb sweetener from this list
OR use Quick Keto Chocolate (milder taste):
300 g dark chocolate, at least 85% cacao (10.5 oz)
100 g cocoa butter (3.5 oz) – will help lower carbs per serving and give the chocolate a milder taste
2 tbsp coconut oil, extra virgin (26 g / 0.9 oz)
1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp unsweetened vanilla extract (you can make your own)
Optional: sweetener like liquid Stevia or Erythritol to taste
Topping:
1 ½ cup raspberries, fresh or frozen (180 g / 6.5 oz)
28 almonds (30 g / 1 oz)
Note: If you don’t have space in your fridge or freezer, halve the recipe. These fat bombs cannot be kept at room temperature. When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).




Instructions

1 Place the almonds in a pan and roast them for about 5 minutes to bring more flavour in.

2 Place one almond into each raspberry, spread over a tray and place in the freezer for about an hour. You don’t need to do this but it helps the chocolate solidify faster.

3 For the chocolate, you can use unsweetened chocolate Lindt makes one that is 99% cacao or raw cacao paste / liquor.

4 Measure the cocoa butter, coconut oil and unsweetened chocolate. Place a bowl over a pot of water and bring to boil. Keep on low heat and make sure the water doesn’t touch the bowl (or use a double boiler).

If using Quick Keto Chocolate, just melt all the ingredients needed in a double boiler / bowl placed over a pot with boiling water.

5 Place the cocoa butter, coconut oil and unsweetened chocolate into the bowl and let it melt while stirring.

6 Meanwhile, powder the Erythritol (or Swerve). It is very important not to skip this step, otherwise you will end up with a crumbly texture like I did the first time I tried this recipe. You can “powder” the sweetener in a blender. I used vanilla stevia – you can also use chocolate or clear stevia – all of these work great.

7 Cut the vanilla bean lenghtwise and scrape the seeds out.
