So, if you have been a follower of the Paleo community, then you have probably heard of “fat bombs.” The first time I heard the name I was kind of grossed out; I imagined a big blob of lard. Well, these are anything but a big blob of lard. They are amazing!

I thought about changing the name for my recipe, but then my kids heard me call them chocolate fat bombs. They thought it was hilarious and it made them want to eat them even more! So, chocolate fat bombs it is and EAT UP kids. These little buggers are good for you!

Here is why they are a healthy treat:

  • Coconut Oil: Full of healthy fat that helps give you immediate energy and also contains lauric acid, which helps keep your immune system healthy!
  • Coconut Flour: A healthy alternative to grain-based flours, also full of fiber and micronutrients.
  • Goji Berries: One of the healthiest foods on the planet! Full of antioxidants so they combat the oxidative damage that we all experience in daily life. Goji berries are full of zeaxanthin, which is essential for eye health. They are also full of Vitamin C, which again supports the immune system.
  • Cocoa Powder: Researchers found the antioxidant activity of dark chocolate and cocoa powder was equivalent to or higher than that found in some other so-called “superfruit” powders or juices, including acai berry, blueberry, cranberry, and pomegranate. Antioxidants help to combat that oxidative damage!
  • Stevia: while Stevia doesn’t have the health superpowers of the foods mentioned above, it is a great alternative to sugar in recipes! It has been shown to be up to 300 times sweeter than sugar and has zero calories. This means that you do not get the unhealthy insulin surge that you get with other sweeteners. Sweet!
