Cinnamon Bun Fat Bombs

These Cinnamon Bun Fat Bombs are addicting! Made with the fat from a coconut, a dash of vanilla, cinnamon, and drizzled with almond butter. They’re also dairy free!

People use dairy free fat bombs when they are on a keto diet to increase the amount of fat consumed for that day.

You might be thinking why on earth would you want to increase fat?  

A ketogenic diet changes the ratio of carbs/protein/fat to a high fat diet that makes you a fat burning machine.

I used to eat ketogenic when I first started eating grain free and you can lose weight and keep it off with very little effort.

I always enjoyed eating keto.  When I first started back in 2011, the closest I ever got to making a fat bomb was taking coconut oil and mixing it with unsweetened cocoa and a little raw honey.

I would nibble on the chocolate for a few days.

The fat bomb I made is a dessert type fat bomb (unlike a savoury fat bomb like homemade mayo).  

I’m proud to say this fat bomb contains zero sweeteners.  

The cinnamon bun fat bomb relies on the coconut taste of the creamed coconut and the intense flavors of cinnamon and almond butter.  

It is truly yummy.

Cinnamon Bun Fat Bomb Ingredients

How to Make Cinnamon Bun Fat Bombs 

  1. Line a dish or a mini loaf pan, muffin pan etc with appropriate liners (i.e. muffin liners).
  2. In a bowl, using your hands, mix the coconut cream and cinnamon. Pat into the dish. Fills 2 mini loaf sections.
  3. First Icing: In another bowl using a whisk, whisk together the coconut oil and almond butter. Spread this over the creamed coconut. Place the bars in the freezer for about 5 minutes or more.
  4. Second Icing: Using a whisk, mix the icing together in a bowl. Drizzle the icing over the bars and either freeze again or consume.
  5. I use a knife to cut my bar into tiny chunks.

Can I Sweeten Fat Bombs?

Yes, to keep these cinnamon fat bomb bars keto friendly you can sweeten them with stevia, monk fruit, xylitol (be careful this is poisonous to dogs) and/or erythritol.

Can I eat as many Fat Bombs as I want on the Keto diet?

Sorry, but no you can’t. Fat bombs are great to curb hunger and add some healthy fats into your diet.

Depending on who you follow for advice on the keto diet, Robb Wolf says to use fat as a lever to meet your goals.

Focus on getting enough protein and if you want to lose weight to not go crazy on the fat.

I personally found fat bombs during the beginning of eating low carb and keto an easy way to keep my sweet tooth happy.

What is Creamed Coconut?

Creamed coconut is dried coconut meat ground up to make a butter.  

It’s made the same way as almond butter.  You take shredded coconut and put it in your food processor until it is smooth.

Creamed coconut is also the same as coconut butter and coconut manna. I love to eat it straight from the jar as a treat!

Help! The Creamed Coconut is too Hard

At room temperature the creamed coconut is soft and you can mix it with the coconut oil that has separated.

If it’s winter or you have the AC on the creamed coconut will be hard just like coconut oil that hardens when it is cold.

To soften it, take the jar and immerse it in hot water. I found when I tried to microwave it to soften it, I would usually end up drying it out.

It was hard to find the correct amount of seconds between softening it and frying it.

    1. I love cinnamon rolls, but I do not care for coconut. Does this recipe taste live coconut?

      1. Of course it tastes like coconut 😛 It’s all coconut.

  1. I’ve never seen or purchased coconut cream. Is there a substitute? What’s the difference between it and coconut butter? Or the stuff I get off the top of a refrigerated can of coconut milk?

    Thanks!

    1. Coconut butter cannot be replaced with coconut cream. Coconut butter is sometimes referred to as coconut manna. You can buy coconut butter on Amazon.

  2. I just purchased the creamed coconut that you recommended and its liquid. Has anyone had this problem? I can’t cut it nor can I frost it? Any help would be much appreciated.

    1. Sounds like your creamed coconut is warm – the coconut oil in it melts at 74°, at which point it becomes runny. Try putting it in the fridge for a while.

  3. I have the same question as Rachel…the creamed coconut is more along the lines of coconut milk and not something I can cut or pat. Is it supposed to be similar to coconut manna/coconut butter, and if so, can it be substituted?
