Keto Desserts Easy Recipes – Chocolate Cheesecake Fat Bombs

Desserts – Why are they important

Living a Ketogenic lifestyle has always been easy for me. Right from the start there have been plenty of dishes that are both familiar, satisfying and Keto/Low carb friendly. Eggs, bacon, cheese, steak, chicken, sausage… I could go on, but you get the point and this is making me hungry. The key to staying consistent is to find replacements of other items that don’t fit your daily macros that DO support the low carb lifestyle. By far the hardest thing to replace (at least for me) are the sweets or desserts… these are typically teeming with sugars and high carbohydrate content that will drop-kick you right out of ketosis faster than you can say Jackie Chan! A Reeses Peanut Butter Cup packs 29g of carbs… if you’ve read this blog or looked into the Keto Diet before you already know that your goal is to stay under 20g – 25g of carbs for the entire day.

Enter the Fat Bomb

So what exactly is a fat bomb and why doesn’t that sound appetizing at all? Fat bombs keto-friendly treats if you’re looking to eat something sweet without going overboard on carbs. “Fat bombs,” “keto bombs,” or “fat fudge” as they are called are different from energy balls or protein balls, these tasty little morsels prioritize healthy fats over protein and are a keto favorite because of their tastiness and ability to keep you full… Now we’re talkin’!

Chocolate Cheesecake Fat bomb

Cheesecake fat bombs are pretty simple to make and a great option to have on hand. This recipe uses a base of cream cheese and coconut oil and has two layers. The bottom is a delicious cheesecake and a chocolate layer added to the top for more sweetness.

To get started, you’ll need a ice tray to mold the fat bombs in. You can use the ice trays that already have, but I recommend picking up ice trays that have a silicon bottom. these will save you time and frustration when your treats are done and you want to remove them from the tray to store them.

Cheesecake Ingredients

  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 Stevia packets
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of cinnamon

Chocolate Topping Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 Teaspoon unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Keto Feast (Optional)
  • 2 Stevia Packets
  • 1/4 cup of Peanut Butter (I prefer chunky!)
  • 1 teaspoon of Chia Seed
  • 1 teaspoon of Himalayan Pink Salt

Instructions

Mix cream cheese, butter, coconut oil, stevia and vanilla and the cinnamon in a bowl. Beat well with a hand mixer or a mini food processor. Use a teaspoon to scoop into a silicone

cupcake or ice tray mold, the silicone bottom will make it easier to remove once it’s done. Press into the mold with the back of a spoon. Freeze for a few minutes while you prepare the chocolate top layer

Combine all chocolate topping ingredients in a small pot, heat on a low to medium setting until all the ingredients have combined into a chocolate syrup like consistency. Remove the tray from the freezer. The cheesecake portion should be semi hard by now. You can use a teaspoon to press down the cheesecake to fill the bottom of each cube. With your teaspoon fill each cube with the chocolate syrup, try to make sure that each cube is getting some peanuts from the chunky

peanut butter or feel free to add crumbled nuts of your choice…. macadamia nuts would be awesome here!. Sprinkle a teaspoon of Himalayan Pink Salt over the top of each cube and return to the freezer for 15 minutes or until firm. Pop out of the silicone mold and eat. Keep refrigerated until ready to eat.

 

 

Nutritional Info

OK that was simple enough so what are we looking at here…what does this amount to? How many of these bad boys can I eat?

 

 

 

These little puppies pack a caloric punch at 50 calories and a little over 5g of fat per per cube, but at less than 1/2g of carbohydrates they can fit nicely into your daily allowance. I was able to fill (2) 21-cube trays with the ingredients listed, so each batch is going to last you for quite some time. Store some in  the refrigerator and keep some frozen… They are actually pretty filling so a batch like this will typically last a week or two.

Note: For those of you that count net carbs, the Chia seeds add some dietary fiber… each one of these cubes are 0.1g of net carbs

Final thoughts

 

I like to think of these tasty little morsels as a tool… just another tool in the arsenal to help me manage my nutritional goals and not feel left out in the cold. I’ll whip up a batch of these near the holidays or family get togethers… Easter is right around the corner and family dinner usually involves a coffee and dessert after the main meal… my wife’s family is Italian, dinner with them comes in waves. While they are pounding down treats like pie, cake or traditional Easter chocolate treats, I can have a few of these with coffee and not feel left out or worse, simply not sit at the table with them as they have dessert… I said they’re Italian didn’t I? Not sitting at the table is seen as disrespectful and I could end up sleeping with the fishes

Give this a try… let me know in the comments what you think

  2. Hi, Bob, I’ve become your fan now. Every day you put something tasty. The beauty is that at the end you also add the nutrition declaration. Then the post was also nice with the photos as you did it. For now, I salute you. See you tomorrow .

      The trouble with posting about tasty treats is that…. I eat those tasty treats! LOL!
      Seriously, I really appreciate the kinds words and can’t wait to get started on my next topic

  4. These sound delicious and I will give them a try. Reminds me of maybe a similar treat – a fresh date sliced open with a chuck of cream cheese stuck in the middle. Actually I prefer Brie or Camembert. I make a plate of these whenever we have guests around – remember those days? – anyway, I’m sure I end up consuming at least half of them. Not sure if that qualifies as Keto though? Thanks for the recipe. Andy

    1. Andy,
      You’ll be amazed at how simple and easy it is to make. dates are little high in carbs to fit into a low carb lifestyle… crazy, huh? I can eat a lb of bacon and lose weight, but give me a banana…kaboom!
      I’m joking… sort of. Thanks for the read and the kind words

  5. Yesterday, or maybe even day before that, I saw an IG post from a fellow fitness maniac who is also on a Keto diet. He posted a mouthwatering chocolate cheesecake with raspberries and now I land on this post. Awesome! Thanks for sharing this. I agree with you completely. It’s a great diet, but it’s hard to find deserts that support it. At least it was hard. Now I have this site. Thanks again! Keep posting great stuff and stay safe.

    1. Thanks Ivan… we live in the greatest information age ever. There is practically nothing that we can’t get more information about with a few simple key strokes. I could never pull this off effectively without being able to access the nutritional data and resources.
      Thanks for the read and the kind words!

  6. These sound divine, I think they could be one to make as an easter treat. I’m surprised that they’re that low in calories, although I guess if you ate a couple of them, you wouldn’t feel it adding up either!

    1. Sharon,
      The ice cube tray that I use to mold the treats are pretty small… the image I posted with the fat bomb in my hand will give you some perspective. It’s easy to pop down 5 or 6 of these which would add up to 300 calories so you DO need to be a little careful. Let me know how they turn out
