Fat Bombs and Butter Coffee: Get with the program!

Below you’ll find my general approach to making Fat Bombs and Butter Coffee.  Both are adaptations of the originals, but a little easier for me.  Naturally, these items are great for ketogenic diets and, with some modifcation, ok for paleo-minded people.  It’s pretty tough to consume these items on a Zone diet, to be fair.

Fat Bombs:

I found a great article with a million different fat bomb recipes.  While I wanted to try a number of them, I am a sucker for something repeatable that I actually like consistenly and can be varied slightly if I am feel creative.  Generally, I make 6 fat bombs at a time with the following directions:

  1. Add 3/4 cup coconut oil to a large microwaveable measuring cup
  2. Add 6 tbsp of almond butter to coconut oil
  3. Microwave for 1 minute
  4. Add 3 tbsp unsweetened cocopowder
  5. Add 2 tabs stevia powder
  6. Add a pinch of salt
  7. Mix well (the stevia powder will settle, so you’ll want to mix while pouring)
  8. Using a disposable cup cake tin lined with cupcake wrappers, portion out your mixture to 6 cupcakes
  9. Add 1/4 cup nuts of your choice across the 6 bombs
  10. Consider other additions like coconut, shredded unsweetened
  11. Freeze for ~2hrs

Macros:  ~415 cals, 4g protein, 2.6g carbs, 45g fat per bomb.

Butter coffee:

This is really as it sounds.  You may have seen advertisements for BulletProof coffee. One of these days, I’ll try and make the bougouis version. For now, I’m using whatever organic / grass fed (likely not interchangeable, but will work in a pinch), the coffee beans (ground at home) from my local grocer and MCT oil from NOW (I’m an Amazon whore).  Some directions say to warm up the blender with warm water, but I’m not convinced that makes a difference either.  Generally, my directions are:

  1. Add 4-5 cups of coffee to blender
  2. Add 2 TBSP of butter
  3. Add 1 TBSP of MCT
  4. Add a few splenda squirts
  5. Add a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
  6. Add 1 or 2 tsp of unsweetened cocca powder
  7. Blend of high for 30s to a minute
  8. Frothy and delicious treat awaits
