If you’re on keto and find yourself running out of options to get quick boosts of energy for workouts, you might be tempted to reach for those energy bars, gels, or drinks again. Don’t! You know they’re loaded with sugar. And you know that exceeding your 20-30-gram daily carb allowance means saying goodbye to all the energy-boosting and health-promoting effects of ketosis.


Fortunately, fat bombs can help. If you haven’t heard of them yet, they’re little balls or bars or cups of keto goodness. Not only are they great at providing quick shots of energy, but they’re utterly delicious, too. So much so that it’s way too easy to splurge on them (try not to). And what’s more, keto bombs are pretty easy to make.


If you’re not on keto, we don’t discriminate! You’ll still find these treats quite tasty.

So without further ado, here are our favorite fat bombs…
