Why I make Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bombs
Believe it or not, getting enough fat on the Keto diet can be tough at times. I always know when I’m not getting enough fat because my lips start to get dry and I’m constantly rubbing chapstick on! Keto is a low carb, moderate protein, and high fat diet. The macros I follow are 70% fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbohydrates. Other people may have different macros, but for the most part, the fat macro will be the highest percentage in the Keto diet. So, the majority of your calories should be coming from fat.
I chose to create this recipe after I received my order of Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup flavored peanut butter from Legendary Foods. Seeing the candy on the jar made me want some! I had bought hemp seeds a few weeks ago and hadn’t decided what I was going to do with them. That is when an idea was born. I would incorporate them into my Keto no bake cookies aka Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bombs!

I HIGHLY recommend Legendary Foods Nut Butters! The Peanut Butter Cup Peanut Butter is what I used to make this recipe. However, they have other flavors that you could substitute, such as Pecan Pie (yum!), Blueberry Cinnamon Bun, and Apple Pie!
Several people have asked questions about substitutions for this recipe. I have made this several times since I first made the recipe and it turned out great using the mixture below for the peanut butter.
Substitute all natural peanut butter for the flavored peanut butter
The Legendary Peanut Butter I originally used is great though, so I do recommend you give that product a try! But, if you don’t have it on hand and want to make these now, then go ahead and mix together the peanut butter, sugar free chocolate syrup in place of the Legendary brand.
One note about the ChocZero – it is thick. So, you cannot substitute a sugar free syrup that is runny. If you don’t have ChocZero, you can try adding some cocoa powder. You may need a little more butter if you do so. Maybe 1-2 tablespoons depending on how much cocoa powder you use. I will update this post when I have tried making it with cocoa powder.
Store in airtight container in or freezer up to 2 weeks (if they last that long!)
Don't have the Legendary Peanut Butter Cup peanut butter on hand? Try using almond butter and stirring in about 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder. You may need to add more swerve to the mixture as Legendary Peanut Butter is sweetened.
