Living La Vida Keto doesn’t mean having to give up your favorite treats.
In fact, a keto diet can provide you with lots of delicious desserts that taste just like candy – in the form of fat bombs.
Fat bombs are tiny little treats filled with good fat that can keep you full longer and reduce hunger.
While they’re usually about 90 percent fat, they generally have few carbs, so you can still stay on target on a keto diet.
Check out these seven recipes for fat bomb treats that mimic the candy you love – and crave.
Craving a York Peppermint Patty? Welcome to the keto version of this cool, refreshing bite!
Filled with mint-infused coconut oil, these peppermint fat bombs will keep hunger at bay.
Plus, coconut oil’s medium chain triglycerides are a great source of energy.
Coconut oil is also antibacterial, anti-fungal, and contains essential vitamins E and K, so it’s the perfect base for this fat bomb.
Enjoy plenty of these, they’re only 1.1 grams of carbs per serving.
Almond Joy’s got nuts – and so do these delicious nuggets of keto goodness!
Even though a traditional Almond Joy is pretty high in fat (13 g), it’s got about 29 grams of carbs that can ruin your keto day in one bite.
This recipe cuts the carbs down to half a gram – and there are only 50 calories per bomb!
So, bite through the rich chocolate coating into the creamy, chewy coconut center.
There’s an almond nestled like a crunchy surprise amidst the layers to satisfy your nutty cravings and contrast with the smooth inside.
Snickers is the quintessential Halloween candy – chocolate, nougat, and caramel all rolled into one sweet package.
This recipe makes a three-gram-per-serving fat bomb that will transport you back to your childhood with every bite – while keeping your true to your keto plan.
Plus, if you store these in the fridge or freezer, you can serve them up like ice-cream truffles for a truly decadent ending to your keto dinner.

Who doesn’t crave this delicious mix of flavors? The juxtaposition of creamy peanut butter next to the sweet, slightly bitter taste of chocolate is a crowd-pleaser.

While not technically a candy bar, bark recipes are a maintain of chocolate candy lover’s wish-lists.
