I have just returned from a short holiday in a small hamlet in the hills called Chindi. And I am happy to report that I did not fall off the wagon even once. It was tough, due to the remoteness of the destination, but I managed with eggs and more eggs. The holiday ended on a wonderful note, my cheat day after 2 months of waiting. I feel no guilt whatsoever, instead I plunged back in the war against carbs, with more zeal than before.
After the relaxing break in the hills, I went for a shopping spree in the hot Northern plains of India for the weekend. There I got a chance to shop for Keto stuff, which I normally do not get in Shimla.
I bought peanut butter, desiccated coconut, Bru Gold coffee sachets, double Cheddar sauce, Thai sweet chilly sauce, unsweetened cocoa and the ever famous chia seeds. I also bought my first box of Casein protein, I intend to monitor my daily protein intake even more strictly now.
I wish we had stores which only sold Keto friendly food, life would be so much more simpler and much more exciting. Anyway for now, need to make the best of what we have in hand.
I have heard mouth-watering stories about Keto bombs and since I have the ingredients now, I have decided to make a batch for myself. At first I was shocked on listening to the term ‘fat bomb’. It sounded to me like something huge and full of fat. I have toyed with the idea for sometime now. Most of you must have noticed that since I am not too fond of cooking , I will always look for recipes that are simple and yummy at the same time.
The notion of ease I believe is also crucial for staying motivated towards your weight loss goal. The recipe I am sharing today is very simple and needs no intricate planning or prep. After I was done making them, the fat bombs resembled cute little beauties that will keep me on the Keto wagon.
I am always going to keep a batch in the freezer now. And if you think you don’t need them, pop one in your mouth when you are feeling low, when you forgot to make lunch for yourself and on occasions when the rest of the family is eating other treats. I made them for one simple reason, I miss chocolates, soooo much. Now my fat bombs will save me!
I had earlier bought these cute muffin paper moulds, which came very handy for the fat bombs. I read a handful of recipes, checked the ingredients in my pantry and my fridge. This is my version of Indian Keto bombs. I hope you have as much fun making them, as I did sharing my first Keto fat bomb recipe with you.
Keto Fat Bombs
1. Melt the butter in the microwave.
2. Add coconut oil, peanut butter and the cocoa powder in it.
3. Blend all the ingredients with a blender or by hand.
4. Add the sweetener of your choice, according to your taste.
5. Now pour it into the molds and put in the freezer for fifteen to twenty minutes.
6. After twenty minutes take the bombs out of the molds and store them in an air-tight container.
7. In case you are using white or unsalted butter, then add a pinch of salt to the mixture. But just a pinch only !
I must confess that I was a little skeptical about how the coconut oil would taste in the bombs. But they taste pretty decent and it took me precisely 30 minutes to make them. Try them, I bet you will love them too.
