Ingredients

All ingredients used in this Lemon Fat Bomb recipe.

Sweeteners – Powdered sweetener is a must for these Lemon Fat Bombs because granular will mess with the ultra creamy texture. I always buy Lakanto’s classic in granular form and then blitz it in a clean coffee grinder for a moment or two to create powdered sweetener! We use golden granular sweetener in the cookie crust for that specific texture.

Refined Coconut Oil – Be sure to used refined coconut oil instead of unrefined. Unrefined coconut oil still carries the flavour of coconut, which we do not want in these Lemon Cheesecake Fat Bombs.

Optional Cookie Crust – Optional, yes, but highly recommended! It’ll take an extra 10 minutes tops to make this delicious cookie crust, and you’ll turn your Lemon Fat Bombs into Lemon Cheesecake Fat Bombs! All you’ll need is some whole almonds, more almond flour, golden granular sweetener, butter, cinnamon and a pinch of sea salt.

How to make Lemon Fat Bombs

Heat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non stick baking mat. Chop the whole almonds super fine and then melt the butter in a medium sized mixing bowl.

A bowl with melted butter next to a wooden cutting board with minced almonds and a knife.

Add 1/2 cup almond flour, golden granular sweetener, sea salt, cinnamon and the minced nuts into the melted better. Mix well with a fork for 1-2 minutes, until all clumps are gone. Spread evenly on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 2 minutes, stir, then bake for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from the oven, give it a stir and then allow the crumbs to cool on the baking sheet. They should be lightly golden brown.

Be sure to have enough space in your freezer for a baking sheet. Zest the lemons until you have 1 1/2 tbsp zest, then juice the lemons until you have 2 tbsp lemon juice. Melt the coconut oil and set aside.

Line a baking sheet with parchment or a non stick baking mat. Remove the bowl from the freezer and, using a medium cookie scoop, scoop portions from the cheesecake mixture. You should get 12. Roll each portion into a ball and place evenly on the prepared baking sheet.

Expert Tips

  1. Make sure the cookie crumbs are thoroughly mixed, that way we make sure the butter is evenly dispersed.
  2. Don’t forget to time the crumbs in the oven – they burn very easily!
  3. Don’t have a cookie scoop? Measure out 2 tbsp per ball.
  4. Try not to eat these Lemon Fat Bombs right from the freezerthey will be hard as rock! Take the time to let them thaw, or move them to the fridge the night before.

    Just started keto back up again and these are the perfect little treat to help curb sweet craving – delicious!

  8. 5 stars
    These sound delicious! And not to take anything away from the actual bombs, but that cookie crust is calling my name. These are going on my list of next recipes to try, and I just wanna load a spoon into the batter and then roll it over those almond crumbs and eat it all from the spoon! Might do that. Yield will be a few bombs less. But oh I will not regret that!! After all, isn’t snacking on the dough the fun part of cookie baking?

  9. 5 stars
    This is so quick and easy and packed with flavor. It’s so yummy!!! I’ve made it twice already. Absolutely delicious!
