Fat bombs are an essential part of the Keto diet, allowing you to intake a large amount of healthy fats in just a couple of bites. They’re especially helpful during that afternoon slump when you’re tired and snacky and most likely to fall off the ketosis train. These bites use coconut cream, heavy cream, and coconut oil to load up on fat. Plus, who doesn’t love OREOs?!

24 hours before you start this recipe, put the cans of coconut milk in the fridge. This will separate the cream from the water, making it easier to use just the cream later on.
Start by toasting the almond flour in a dry frying pan, moving it around constantly to avoid burning. You cannot skip this step, otherwise, you lose out on that toasty almond flavor! If you can find toasted almond flour in the store go ahead and use that instead, but it’s often easier and less expensive to buy raw almond flour and toast it yourself. Once it’s a golden brown, take it off the heat and immediately transfer it to a bowl so it doesn’t burn.
Then it’s time to make the crust! Add the cocoa powder, salt, and 4-6 teaspoons of sweetener to the bowl of toasted almond flour. We used monkfruit sweetener because it’s our favorite sugar substitute, but you can use whatever sweetener you’ve got on hand or is your fav!
Melt the coconut oil and add it the crust mixture. Then use a fork to mix it well until it has a wet crumb texture. Be sure to scrape down the sides to make sure it’s all combined.
Add about a half teaspoon of the chocolate crust mixture to each mold and use the back of the measuring spoon to press the mixture down, paying particular attention to the corners. Transfer the mold to the freezer to set the chocolate OREO crust.
Time to make the OREO creme filling! Open the cans of coconut milk and use a spoon to scoop the cream out, which should have risen to the top leaving the coconut water on the bottom of the can. Discard the water or use it for another recipe. Add the cream to a small saucepan and add the heavy cream, vanilla, and 4-6 teaspoons of sweetener. Cook on medium heat, whisking constantly until the sweetener has dissolved and the coconut cream is no longer lumpy. Remove from heat and transfer to a container or bowl to help speed up the cooling process.
Once the creme mixture has cooled, remove the silicone mold from the freezer and add about one teaspoon of creme into each mold overtop the OREO crust. Be sure to leave some room at the top to add more crust later on! Once you’ve filled all the molds, return to the freezer to set. Finally, after the liquid creme has frozen, add another teaspoon of the chocolate crust mixture to each mold, pressing it down as you did the first time. Set in the freezer once again.
You’re done! These little OREO keto fat bombs are delish and oh-so cute! Continue to store in the freezer, taking out the mold and popping one out when you’re ready for a low carb snackaroo! Enjoy!
