What are Fat Bombs
Fat bombs in a nutshell are bite sized calorie dense snacks / dessert. Their high fat and protein content keep you satisfied and satiated.
Fat Bomb Ingredients
My recipe for Fudgy Almond Butter Fat Bombs is a bit unique and that’s because I have been very intentional that the ingredients benefit the menstrual cycle. Let’s take a closer look at why these Fudgy Almond Butter Fat Bombs are perfect for the second half of your menstrual cycle.
Sesame Seeds & Sunflower Seeds – After my seed cycling post a ton of you reached out to me asking how to incorporate the seeds into your diet. It’s easy enough to sprinkle the seeds onto your salads, oatmeal or add them to smoothies but I guess you ladies wanted more. I can’t blame you. One of these Raw Fudgy Almond Butter Fat Bombs contains your daily serving of seed cycling seeds for the second half of the menstrual cycle. So go ahead and feel good eating these Fudgy Almond Butter Fat Bombs, they’re a superfood it their own right.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom Powder improves memory focus and concentration. It gives a steady energy boost without the jitters of other stimulants, like caffeine. It improves insulin sensitivity and supports gut health. Lion’s Mane Mushroom Powder is especially beneficial during the second half of your menstrual cycle because this is the time of the month when both estrogen and progesterone take a nosedive taking with them your energy and mental clarity. This can trigger PMS, irritability or the blues, depending on how sensitive you are to these changes.
My personal experience with Lion’s Mane Mushroom Powder has been very positive. A few months ago I needed to study for my drivers license exam but I felt like every time I sat down to study my brain felt all foggy. I started taking Lion’s Mane Mushroom Powder and saw a huge improvement. Sidenote I passed both the theory and practical exam on the first go with flying colors! Lion’s Mane Mushroom Powder works!
Raw Cacao is the most concentrated source of magnesium found in nature. It is a natural mood elevator and anti-depressant and has 40 times the anti-oxidants of blueberries. It’s no wonder we crave chocolate on the days leading up to your period?
Lucuma is a fruit native to Peru and is widely viewed as a symbol of fertility and creation. It’s high in beta carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium, and protein.
Because of its maple-like taste lucuma powder can be used as a natural sweetener for lattes, baked goods, and even ice cream. I’ve tried to keep the sugar content of these Fudgy Almond Butter Fat Bombs as low as possible so adding lucuma gives them a sweet taste without added sweeteners. Besides the lucuma these fat bombs contain just two tablespoons of liquid sweetener (you can replace it with 2 dates) to help bind them together.
Almond Butter is my choice of fat for these fat bombs. Coconut oil or coconut butter seems to be the more popular choice around the internet but where I live both are very expensive and hard to come by and since I make my own almond butter I figured why not?!
How to make Fat Bombs
Fat bombs could not be easier to make. They’re a no bake treat so you don’t need to even turn on a stove or the oven. Just mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and store in the fridge.
