Keto, paleo, HFLC, superfood options
Chocolate + sea salt = match made in heaven! Fat bombs are gaining popularity and it's for good reason. One, they are delicious! Two, they provide fat that your body can use as fuel. Three, they will fill you up and keep you energized longer than a carbohydrate based snack.
Let me explain, your body can either use sugar for fuel or fat and fat is a much more efficient fuel for your body. Sugar will provide a quick burst of energy but will quickly and dramatically drop, leaving you shaking and frantically looking for your next snack or more realistically, your next sugar hit. I mean, I think we can all relate to that "hangry" feeling, and we all know that it doesn't feel good. So what's the alternative? FAT! If you're a client of mine or have ever taken a workshop with me, you know that I'm most certainly not afraid of fat. Now, I could jump up on my soap box and rant about the woes of food marketing and the low-fat craze that seems to linger on for decades (sigh) but I think I'll save that rant for another post. Stay tuned. What it all boils down to is that our bodies need fat in our diets and these Fat Bombs are a tasty way to get those fats in!
Another thing I love about this recipe is that it's extremely versatile. I've listed some superfood add-ins that work great in this recipe. You can play around with different ones, choose the ones that are specifically beneficial to you, or heck, just use whatever you have in the kitchen!
Here's some ideas what what you could use;
In a medium sauce pan, melt together the ghee, coconut oil, and sunflower seed butter until liquid, stir fully combined. Removed from heat and whisk in remaining ingredients. You will have a chocolate sauce-like consistency.
Line a mini-muffin tin with cupcake liners and pour the "chocolate sauce" evenly into the cups, filling to the top. Place in the freezer for about 10 minutes and then add the sea salt garnish. If you do this right away the salt will simple absorb into the mixture and you won't have the cute garnish on top.
Place back in the freezer for 30 minutes (until they have fully solidified). Once solid, remove from the muffin tin, and store in an airtight container in the freezer. Pop one out whenever you need a little treat or pick me up!
