Nut Butter Chocolate Fat Bombs: a Unique Valentine's Treat!

By Health Coach Melanie Rathbun FMCHC

Have you heard of fat bombs?  I know many folks hear those words and feel the inclination to shy away. I mean aren’t we lead to believe that fat is bad?  I will answer that with a resounding, no!  Quality healthy fats are our friend, and our bodies feel best when we fuel ourselves with clean sources of energy in whole form. 

Fat bombs are low carb, keto and vegan friendly no-bake treats!  They’re typically made with ingredients such as nut butters, coconut oil, cocoa powder and only a little sweetener in pure form.  We at BWC for Horse Lovers prefer natural sweeteners such as honey, and do our best to avoid refined sugar, so we’ve included a recipe below for you to try at home.  Many of you have been making healthier choices this year, and we want to ensure we always continue to support you in your goals for long lasting change. 

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and we all know what that means.  We are about to be bombarded with mass advertisement and potentially unwanted sweets finding their way into our homes.  Let’s work with that!  By preparing these pleasing treats in advance of cravings sneaking up on you, you can have your own simple pleasures and easily say ‘no thank you’ to consuming something that will leave you feeling unbalanced, and not satisfied. 

This is the beauty of fat bombs; they satiate you by stabilizing blood sugar and satisfying your taste buds with healthy alternatives that help steer you away from the processed, unhealthy fare.  They are extremely rich, and without too much sweetness, so you don’t need much.  As with anything, moderation is key for these, but they’re so filling that it’s much easier to feel satisfied even after just a small amount.

Are you wanting to gift a loved one around Valentine’s Day this year?  This might be a fun idea for something a little different. Whip up a batch (it only takes 10 minutes to prepare, with 30 minutes to set in the freezer), freeze them and pack them into a container paired with an ice pack.  Place them at someone’s door as a nice surprise, then leave a note:  “To ____, because I care about you and your health.  Love, _____”.

Nut Butter Chocolate Fat Bombs

Makes 12 small sized fat bombs or 6-8 large



  1. Arrange small/large baking cups on a plate or a small baking sheet or set a silicon tray on a baking sheet for stability. Set aside.
  2. Set up a double boiler: Fill a medium pot with an inch of water and place a smaller pot or heat-safe bowl on top ensuring the water is not touching the bottom of the smaller pot or bowl. The smaller pot or bowl should rest tightly on top of the pot and any water or steam should not be able to escape. Bring water to a boil then reduce to lowest heat.
  3. Add the almond butter and coconut oil to the smaller pot and allow them to melt and stir to combine. Whisk in the cocoa powder.
  4. In a small bowl combine the vanilla and honey. Add the honey mixture to the almond butter mixture and stir well to combine.
  5. Divide the chocolate almond butter mixture between the paper baking cups or silicon tray then transfer to the freezer. Allow the fat bombs to set for about 30 minutes or until solid. Transfer to an airtight container and keep frozen. Share with a loved one and enjoy!


  • This recipe makes 8 large servings using paper baking cups
  • Leftovers: Keep in the freezer for up to one month.  Coconut oil melts at room temperature.
  • No almond butter: use cashew butter, macadamia butter or sunflower seed butter instead.  You can even mix things up and sub coconut butter.
