Fat bombs are perfect bite for your sweet tooth. They are easy to make and stay fresh for some time in the refrigerator. I have also wrapped them one by one in colourful foil papers, to make them look like “real” candies :-).
I always try to use organic nuts and seed because they are not processed with different chemicals and they usually smell and taste better. One important thing before using nuts and seeds, also organic ones, is to wash them thoroughly before using. If you have done it once and seen how the water looks like afterwards, then i am pretty sure that next time you`ll want to do it again, it is just so soggy. After washing it is very good to soak the nuts and seeds over night. This way they are activated- different enzymes become alive, it is easier to digest them, we get more out of them and they also taste better. My kids absolutely love for example soaked almonds and sunflower seeds for snacks, no one wants the dry ones anymore :-). If you soak too many nuts or seeds then you can dehydrate them again. This way they still stay alive, even though they are dry and crisp.
Raffaello style keto fat bombs
- 100g cashew nuts
- 100g blanched almonds
- 60g creamed coconut
- 60g coconut flakes
- 60g (raw) cocoa butter
- 30g erythritol (or some other natural low carb sweetener)
- Vanilla and salt to taste
- Step 1 Wash cachew nuts thoroughly and soak them in cold water at least 1 hr. It brings them alive, helps to digest them better (enzymes become active) and also this way it is easier to blend them.
- Step 2 Add soaked nuts, coconut cream, cocoa butter, 30g of coconut flakes, sweetener, vanilla and salt to the blender. Blend untill it reminds the texture of marzipan.
- Step 3 Let the mixture chill in the refrigerator about an hour, then it is easyer to shape the candy balls.
- Step 4 I use about 1 tsp of the mixture, roll it between my arms into a ball in the second falf of the coconut flakes. I also added some dried raspberry flakes to add a little touch of colour. Keep the candies in the refrigerator because they become soft at room temperature.
