Wanna know how to feel like a kid again? Eat anything related to a PBJ.
My goodness. These fat bombs brought me back! Like many of us, I grew up on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, typically eaten over summer break on my parents’ front porch. There’s just something so nostalgic about this combination of flavors!
Personally, I am partial to raspberry jelly- none of that strawberry, blackberry, or heaven forbid, apricot jelly. NO THANKS. Raspberry jelly is soooooo good. However, if you prefer a different flavor of jelly on your PBJs, I’d guess you could sub that in frozen fruit form. If you do, lemme know what you think in the comments below!
What Fat Bombs Are
Fat Bombs are a sweet treat that include high-fat and low-carb ingredients (coconut products, low-glycemic sweeteners, etc.). As the name suggests, fat bombs are high in fat. This is to give a burst of energy and satiation to those who follow a keto or low-carb diet!
Fat Bombs are a Perfect Keto/Low-Carb Treat
As someone who follows a ketogenic diet, I love to have fat bombs stored in the freezer for an after-dinner treat. These fat bombs are particularly wonderful because they’re bite size, curb my cravings for sweets, and are full of healthy fats! Plus, peanut butter is involved, so….. yeah. They obviously taste good.
A special ingredient in this recipe that I’ve begun to add to most everything lately is MCT oil in the form of either Perfect Keto 100% C8 Liquid MCT Oil or Bulletproof Brain Octane. Both of these products contain a very high amount of caprylic acid, a beneficial saturated fat known to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties.
I have totally hopped on the MCT Oil train (actually, I’m so into it currently, I probably should be Conductor of this proverbial train…) and, even though, at first, I was VERY skeptical, I am a total believer now. I tested MCT oil from other brands in this fat bomb recipe and none compared. The level of mental clarity and energy I feel after adding MCT Oil to my fat bombs, to my coffee, or even to a salad is pretty remarkable.
As a note, the Bulletproof Brain Octane in this recipe can be replaced with coconut oil.
One fat bomb contains LESS THAN 2g net carbs! Yes. Yes yes YES.

- 1 tbsp Brain Octane or MCT oil or melted coconut oil
- 2 cups frozen raspberries
- 3/4 cup peanut butter

If you use a brand of stevia that is different than the one I have linked here, you may need to add more. The brand of stevia that I use in this recipe is VERY potent and a little bit goes a very long way!
