Fat bombs. They sound terrible right? Who wants to have fat bombs – let alone coconut oil fat bombs? Well, let me tell you they are delicious and so GOOD for you!
Why We Need Fat In Our Diet
Years ago, I stayed away from fat. I ate a low-fat diet thinking that was the best way to stay thin and healthy. Boy, was I wrong!
I had horrible menstrual cramps and migraines during that time of the month. I was fatigued – even though I was in my 20s. I always felt hungry and craved carbs. I had brain fog. I was cranky and moody. The list goes on and on.
I avoided fat thinking it was the best way to stay thin. Turns out I was wrong. Low-fat diets are usually higher in sugar – which explained my constant craving for carbs – and also wreak havoc on the body. The body needs fat to function properly, to stabilize moods, to boost energy, and to feel satiated.
So yeah, I gave up low-fat foods and now I eat fat bombs. Well, coconut oil fat bombs actually. You see, coconut oil is fantastic for the body. Coconut oil has so many health benefits, and coconut oil helps you to lose weight.

These are excellent! I didn’t use a silicone mold, just a regular metal mini cupcake tin, and they came out fine. I also used mint extract, because I wasn’t too sure about the essential oils being too strong in the mint flavor. I’m not a huge mint fan. Thanks for the recipe!

I just made this and used two drops of essential oil-not used essentials oils for chocs b4. They were perfectly flavoured. I added a pinch of salt. Perfect.
