Cacao-conut Fat Bombs

Standard

I really like fat bombs, they are quite effective for me, because I love sweets and as a vegan eating keto, it’s always a battle to keep those carbs down. Eating a high fat diet with animal products, you get ‘carb freebies’ because animal products have no carbs/no fiber. EVERYTHING plant based (other than straight oil/fat) has carbs in them.

Makes 14

2 TBS Almond Butter
1 TBS Coconut Oil
2 TBS Cacao Butter
2 TBS Coconut Cream
2 TBS Coconut Flour
2 TBS Flax Seed (I used toasted flax)
2 TBS Cacao Powder
6 TBS Coconut Butter
Stevia to taste

7.5g fat
2.4g carb (1.6 fiber) = .8g net carb
1.2g protein

82 calories

If you don’t have cacao butter, you can use coconut oil in it’s place, will still be good that way! Also, if you don’t have flax, you could put in hemp seeds, chopped pecans or even chopped macadamia nuts and still have it be a great fatty treat and not change the carb count much.

Vanilla Almond Coconut Granola

Standard
Vanilla Almond Coconut Granola

I love granola, always have, but it seems like it’s something that USED to be good for you, but is no longer. They add all sorts of sugar into them, and there is almost always wheat. One of my favorites is a vanilla almond macaroon granola, so, I thought I would make a healthier LIGHTER version of it.

If you can’t find puffed millet, puffed rice works just as well. OR you can just put another cup of oats.

I used coconut sugar because I’m crazy about it. If you have a different sweetener you prefer, you can certainly use that. For those of you who don’t know, brown rice syrup is sweet, but isn’t much more subtle than agave/maple/honey, it has more of a caramel taste to it. And stevia, that is really sweet, that’s why it’s only a few drops.

If you don’t have coconut butter, you can use almond butter, although it will give you a different taste. It is ALMOND Vanilla Coconut Granola though, so it will work just lovely!

Makes about 5 cups

1 c shredded unsweetened light coconut
1 c rolled oats
1 c puffed millet (you can use more oats if you would like)
1/4 c ground buckwheat groats or buckwheat flour
1/4 c ground flaxseed
2 TBS flaxseed
1 c almonds (I did threw it in my blender and pulsed it about 5-8 times)
1/2 tsp salt

1/4 c coconut sugar
2 TBS brown rice syrup
8 drops vanilla stevia
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 banana
3 tbs coconut oil
5 tbs coconut butter

Preheat the oven to 325F

Combine ingredients down to (and including) the salt, in a large bowl and mix.

Next throw the rest of the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. Pour the mix over the dry ingredients in the bowl and make sure it’s mixed through out.

Once its mixed line a cookie sheet with foil and pour granola onto it. Make sure to get it evenly spread all over the pan. If your pan is large, you can use one, if it’s small you will have to use two (otherwise the bottom and top will get toasty while the middle won’t, and it will take longer to cook).
