What Are Keto Fat Bombs?
It you’re wondering what keto fatbombs are, the quick answer is: DELICIOUS.
The slightly longer answer is that they are high fat, low protein, no carb, bite-sized treat that helps those who want to stay in fat burning mode keep their body nourished with enough good-for-you fats.
They can be either sweet or more savory, but the one thing all keto fat bomb recipes have in common is that they are heavy on the healthy fats and little else. Each ingredient has been carefully chosen.
Their high fat content also helps you feel more full longer, so they are a wonderful solution to hunger and cravings. Just grab 2 and be on your way!

No Bake Lemon Cheesecake Bites
If you’re a cheesecake lover (like me!), you’re going to love how simple this recipe is. You can be enjoying your no-bake mini lemon cheesecakes in a little over an hour.
And the only reason it takes that long is because your keto lemon bites need to chill in the freezer after you make them.
You’re basically making a no bake low carb lemon cheesecake and rolling it into balls instead of serving it by the slice. So simple!

How To Make Lemon Cheesecake Keto Fat Bombs
Making these no bake cheesecake lemon keto fatbombs isn’t hard.
No Bake Low Carb Lemon Cheesecake Bites
All you do is mix together your cream cheese and butter in a mixing bowl. Add in the vanilla and lemon juice, mixing it all together well.
Fresh lemon is going to add such a light, refreshing, tart taste to offset the sweet and fat in the recipe. You could also try lime here; both are perfect! Use a light hand when measuring your vanilla and lemon juice so you don’t end up with mushy cheesecake batter and too soft fat bombs.
Be sure to use full fat cream cheese, no spreads or low fat options. The same with your butter: full fat, no spreads or low fat options accepted!
Fold your almond flour, sweetener, and coconut flakes until your mix is a dough like consistency.
Making Easy Keto Fat Bombs
Next up, freeze the dough for ten minutes. You want it nice and cold so it’s easy to work with when you roll the cheesecake balls.
A dash of lemon zest in the coating would add some lovely color and a tart flavor; only add this if you crave the sour tartness of lemon and don’t use too much or it will be bitter. (Here is an awesome zester!)
If you’d like, you can add a drop of yellow coloring to the powdered sweetener to make them more festive if you’re serving them for a special occasion.
Place your mini lemon cheesecake bites onto the cookie sheet and freeze them for an hour. This step is important so they don’t stick to each other when you store them.
How To Keep Keto Fatbombs
Once you’ve waited an hour for your keto lemon bites to harden, it’s time to put them into airtight storage.
If you like your fat bombs nice and firm, go ahead and store them in a freezer bag or other container in your freezer. This way they’ll almost be low carb lemon cheesecake ice cream bites.
However, if you enjoy your lemon cheesecake bites a little creamier, you can keep them in an airtight box in the fridge.
