These fat bombs are DA’ BOMB! Haha! No, seriously, they are the perfect sweet treat but also pack a protein punch!
All you need is carob powder, coconut oil, almond butter, collagen peptides, and salt.
I love using carob powder for many reasons! First and foremost, it is allowed on the candida diet. Secondly, it is naturally sweet and has many health benefits, including that it is low in fat and sodium, contains calcium but no oxalates, it’s high in fiber, naturally gluten-free and caffeine-free, and is a rich source of polyphenol antioxidants. Another BIG plus for those who suffer from migraines, carob does not contain tyramine. Healthline.com states that Tyramime is a byproduct of tyrosine, an amino acid. Foods that contain tyramine may trigger migraine headaches, and chocolate contains tyramine. Carob, however, does not contain tyramine and is considered safe to eat if you get migraines. Also, fun fact…carob powder is Fido-friendly. It doesn’t contain high levels of theobromine, a compound that is toxic to dogs and cats in large quantities. Win win!
Sugar-Free Fat Bombs (Candida-friendly, Keto, No Bake)
Total Time: 5 minutes
- 1/2 cup almond butter (pure almond butter – no added sugar)
- 1/4 cup carob powder
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- Pinch of salt
- 1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
- Stevia to taste, if needed (I find carob powder to be enough sweetness)
- Walnuts, quartered
Mix all ingredients (except walnuts) together until smooth. Pour into silicone ice cube trays (I like these ones) and top with 1/4 walnut. Freeze. Pop out and eat when you need to cure that sweet tooth!
