How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fat Bombs
The first step when making these fat bombs is to cream together your butter and low carb sweetener. For these two ingredients, I strongly recommend that you use Stevia for the sweetener and grass fed butter.
The reason being is that butter produced by cows fed a diet that’s completely free of grains tends to have a higher concentration of antioxidants and more beneficial effects on your cholesterol levels. (1) Next, add in your vanilla extract and the cream cheese and beat them in until the mixture is well blended. Cream cheese is such a clutch ingredient in so many keto dessert recipes, as it adds a ton of great flavor and healthy fats all in one convenient source.
The next step is to add in your almond flour to the mix. Almond flour is without a doubt my favorite type of wheat flour alternative to use when making my keto recipes because it’s so incredibly nutrient-dense, as it provides plenty of healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
It also adds a delightfully nutty aftertaste to these fat bombs, and since it’s made with real almonds, it possesses all of the same cardiovascular health benefits as raw almonds do. (2)
Last but not least, go ahead and gradually fold in your pre-chopped dark chocolate into the mixture. There are several reasons why this recipe opts to include sugar free dark chocolate — it’s obviously low carb, it tastes great, it’s a rich source of antioxidants, and it adds even more fat calories to your fat bombs.
There’s even evidence to suggest that cocoa and dark chocolate can provide some neuroprotective benefits for your brain, helping to delay or prevent cognitive decline with aging. (3)
After adding in your dark chocolate chips, simply cover the dough and freeze it until it’s firm enough to scoop into balls. This usually takes between 30-60 minutes, and the end result offers everything that you could ask for from a good keto snack — it provides an abundance of high quality fats all in one incredibly delicious package.
Not only that, but as far as cookie doughs go, this recipe makes one of the better tasting varieties I’ve ever tried thanks to the use of ingredients like cream cheese and almond flour. Truly yummy!
