How to Make Coconut Oil Candy ‘Fat Bombs’


Coconut Fat Bomb Candies

These coconut oil ‘candies' or ‘fat bombs' as some people call them, are incredibly useful for evening sugar cravings. They can be made extremely low carb with your alternative sweetener of choice (I prefer xylitol/stevia mix for these), and they are great to have in the fridge for when you are in the throes of a craving, or just great as an evening snack. It's hard to explain but these seem to satisfy something in my body and I can just feel myself going ‘ahhhhhh… I'm better now'. Maybe it's the combination of the cocoa powder and coconut flakes together working it's magic. Whatever it is, I'll take it!

Tips for making Coconut Oil Candies

  • These are yummy but they're hard to overeat since they are only lightly sweetened and mostly coconut oil, so are extremely satisfying.
  • Cover these candies with dessicated coconut or even crushed almonds to make them fancier “truffles”.
  • Put the mixture in a silcone mold so the finished product is in neat shapes!

Coconut Oil “Candies” Fat Bombs


Makes about 18 candies



Mix all ingredients together in a bowl or food processor until mixture is smooth. Drop by the tablespoon onto waxed or parchment paper, or into the dessicated coconut. Refrigerate until the candies are solid, then store in a covered container in the fridge.

Hi, what does ‘equivalent to your sugar’ mean please. Is it to do with my sweetener being say four times sweeter….so I need a quarter of one to two tablespoons. Or do I simply use one to two tablespoons. Please clarify. Looks really tasty.

Your brand of sweetener usually says the equavilent to sugar somewhere on it or on it’s website.

I made these tonight, I’m on my second day of Keto and I’m trying to come up with ways to keep my fat up. These at first feel and taste like a melt in your mouth chocolate truffle, but mine quickly turned into melted puddle of oil that was hard to swallow. A couple almonds and water got it down, but is there any way to get rid of the oily consistency? I guess that’s a really silly question since it’s essentially a ball of oil. But any advice would be great 🙂
