Chocolate Macadamia Nut Fat Bombs

Whether or not to incorporate fat bombs in your keto life is a personal preference. You want to be sure you utilize these as a very tasty, on occasion treat because you can easily consume too many to kick you out of ketosis. I for one, use them for my kiddos to have a much healthier, full fat treat than grabbing a bag of candy and will occasionally have one myself. One or two will do!

With this recipe I learned a few things along the way. I shared the tips at the end of the post to make these fat bombs a success.

1/2 cup salted macadamia nuts
8 tbsp coconut oil (add more or less per preference)
1/2-3/4 bag of Lily’s stevia sweetened chocolate chips
3-4 large strawberries diced

Food processor
silicone molds

1. Chop macadamia nuts in a food processor until you reach a finer consistency and set aside.
2. Dice strawberries in small pieces and set aside.
3. Heat coconut oil in a small pan on low-medium heat. Careful not to make it too hot as it will cause the chocolate to scorch. Stir in Lily’s chocolate chips (can be found at whole foods stores or online) until fully melted.
4. While chocolate is still warm, pour directly into silicone molds on a flat surface, filling 3/4 of the way full.
5. Place silicone mold in the refrigerator for 5 minutes or so. Careful not to let cool too much as all the toppings will sit on top.
6. Remove mold from refrigerator and add macadamia nuts. Place back in the refrigerator for an hour to allow firming.
7. Test removal from the silicone mold, if it doesn’t remove easily, allow more time to cool. You can also flip the mold over and run under warm water to allow for easy removal. Once cooled completely, place in foil or a container in the freezer.
8. Enjoy your chocolate macadamia nut fat bomb as an occasional treat.

If you want the toppings to sink and mix into the chocolate, add toppings prior to refrigeration.
Add strawberries on top once refrigerated because the moisture from the berries causes the chocolate not to firm up and makes for difficult removal from the silicone mold.

Keto Thyme Chicken Veggie Soup

We made the perfect chicken veggie soup. This is a game changer!
This recipe can be made in the instant pot or crock pot. The beauty of this soup is the ingredients are optional. If you desire less carbs, omit the tomatoes. If you have room in your carb allotment then keep em’, they add a delicious flavor. Typically our largest meal is dinner, so it was the perfect fit!

While this recipe would be wonderful in a crock pot, it takes much longer for the soup to be ready. With two kiddos and the mad dinner rush, the instant pot is a magical thing. Meals like this can be ready super fast and still taste flavorful.

See how we made it below:

🍣Keto Spicy Tuna Sushi Roll 🍣

🍣Keto Spicy Tuna Sushi Roll 🍣

* This makes three rolls*
4 cups riced cauliflower (I used a food processor and a fresh head of cauliflower instead of bagged rice for better flavor) (20g carbs per 4 cups)
2 oz cream cheese (2.4g carbs)
1 sheet seaweed paper (1g carbs)
Spicy Tuna Mixture:
1 can albacore canned tuna (0g carbs)
1/3 cup avocado Mayo (0 carbs)
2 tbsp sriracha sauce (<1g per tsp)

* Make the Spicy Tuna mixture first so it can cool in the refrigerator while making the cauliflower roll.
Spicy tuna mixture:
Mix together canned tuna, avocado Mayo, and sriracha sauce and stir well. Place in fridge to cool.

For Cauliflower Roll
* Heat up the riced cauliflower for 4-5 minutes in the microwave in a glass bowl, add cream cheese and mix well. Place mixture in a pan to let cool for an hour or so.
Place a kitchen towel down, lay a sheet of parchment paper on top. Place seaweed paper on top of the parchment and spread cauliflower mix in a thin layer about a 1/4 of inch thick leaving an inch or so around the edge (it spreads as you roll).
Place spicy tuna (or whatever filling you desire) in a thin layer on top of the cauliflower. Start rolling by using the towel to keep the shape of the roll as you go (this may take two people), be sure not roll the parchment paper with it but rather, pull it out as you roll.
Place in refrigerator for about an hour to bind together. Cut with a sharp knife and serve.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
1 tbsp Avocado Oil
1 tbsp MCT oil
2 tsp Pink Himalayan salt and herb blend
1 lb shrimp
1 lb thin sliced bacon, cut in half down the center of the pack

Cook bacon in a frying pan until it starts to brown slightly, making sure to flip to cook evenly. It still should be flimsy enough to wrap around the shrimp. Place on a few paper towels to cool. Preheat the oven on 400F while bacon is cooling.
Drizzle a little avocado oil and MCT oil in a glass baking dish.
Once the bacon is cooled, take the half slices of bacon and wrap them around individual pieces of shrimp, placing them in a single layer in the glass baking dish. Fresh shrimp is best, frozen leaves a lot of water behind in the dish but will still do the trick if that is what you have. Place a toothpick in the bacon/shrimp to hold it in place. In a pinch, you can tuck it under the shrimp. Sprinkle with a little Pink Himalayan salt and herb blend or creole seasoning (low carb) and place in the oven for 8-10 minutes until shrimp is cooked. Check often, no one likes overcooked shrimp 🙂 Serve with a few slices of avocado for some additional fat. Enjoy!

4 chicken breasts butterflied or sliced thin
1 ½ tsp pink Himalayan salt
1 ½ tsp ground pepper
2 tsp avocado or MCT oil
1/2 cup guacamole

On a cutting board lay the chicken flat, season the outside with salt and pepper, spread guacamole on each of the chicken breasts, roll them and wrap each in 3 slices of bacon. Add 2 tsp Avocado or MCT Oil in a glass baking dish and bake in the oven at 400F for 20-30 minutes until cooked thoroughly. About 3-4 minutes prior to removing, turn the oven on broil to make the bacon crispy. Chicken may also be cooked on the grill over medium heat. Heat queso and use as a dipping sauce.

¾ cup diced yellow tomatoes
½ cup fresh garden salsa
