Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was okay, to be honest. I was pretty moody most of it and couldn’t really figure out why. But today I’m starting to figure it out and it really comes down to self-care, or I should say, lack of self-care.
So needless to say, that’s why I decided to jump on the blog today and share one of my favorite recipes that I have been using for my keto lifestyle. Now, I did not develop this recipe but it is something that we have grown to love and make almost weekly.
But first, you’re probably asking yourself, what are fat bombs? Well for those of us on a ketogenic diet/lifestyle, you probably already know, but for everyone else, fat bombs are essentially a super amount of tasty fat that we need to keep our bodies in a ketogenic state, so it will burn fat.
Now, I don’t know about you, but making keto friendly desserts hasn’t gone so well for us. There was the great avocado brownie disaster, as well as the lemon tart disaster of 2018. So, when we found this fat bomb recipe and it didn’t suck, welp it was all over from there!
So the recipe is from Diabetes Strong and we have tweaked it here and there but overall not too much.
