Keto - Low-Carb - Refined Sugar Free
Can we talk about Cacao Butter?! It’s good for you inside and out, literally!
This rich, creamy and buttery edible vegetable fat is extracted from the cacao bean. It’s used in many skin products for it’s dry and sensitive skin healing properties, hair products, lip balms and is also known for helping reduce the appearance of scars.
Cacao butter is also a healthy fat, mostly saturated like coconut oil AND it’s used to make chocolate…NBD. Don’t get me wrong I love nut butter and chocolate fat bombs as much as the next person but these creamy, rich fat bombs with a hint of spice are a nice way to switch it up.
These fat bombs are a perfect way to get extra fats into your diet. They’re also super satiating – I don’t often feel the need to snack on Keto and sometimes happily go long lengths of time between meals but when Keto hunger hits…shit gets real and having one of these guys on hand is all I need to hold me over to the next meal.
Now these fat bombs don’t fair to well in the heat but they should stay for the week in the fridge or you can freeze them for another day – pop one out and give it a couple minutes to thaw and bombs away! See what I did there…
Line a muffin tray with 10 liners
In a medium sized sauce pan, combine coconut oil, ghee, cacao butter, coconut mana and sweetener and melt over low heat, stirring often
Once melted, add vanilla extract, cinnamon and pinch of salt
Pour mixture evenly into liners
Distribute pecans into each cup (approx 5-6 each)
Place tray in freezer for 15-20 minutes until firm
Cups will stay good in the fridge or freezer but try not to leave them out as them will melt easily!
