No one is born a great cook, one learns by doing.

— Julia Childs

If at first, you don’t succeed…just. keep. trying!

Take it from me, who attempted making the notorious and simple fat bombs twice, resulting in TWO failures, but didn’t give up! I made a second trip to the store, bought more ingredients, and simplified the recipe to what made sense to me, versus blindly following a recipe I found online. Don’t get me wrong, online recipes are great and have forever altered the accessibility to learning cooking but they don’t always work for everyone! I was shocked at how many different fat bomb recipes there are, and all overly complicated – at least for my beginner-brain.

So, without further to do – here is my super simplified cream cheese and peanut butter fat bomb recipe for those of you who do not want to over complicate things! (That took me three different tries to get right – no shame!)

8 oz of cream cheese1/2 cup of crunchy peanut butter (I used this kind)1-2 tbls of sweetener (I used Stevia)*

Third-Times-the-Charm, Cream Cheese & Peanut Butter Fat Bombs

  • 8 oz of room temperature cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup of crunchy peanut butter (I used this kind)
  • 1-2 tbls of sweetener (I used Stevia)*

*depending on the amount of sweetener/sugar in your peanut butter, you may need to taste the batter to determine the best amount of sweetener to add.

  1. Mix cream cheese + PB in a bowl until relatively combined, then add sweetener. Keep mixing until the combo naturally begins to firm up. I don’t have an electric mixer, so I manually stirred this which took about 10 mins.
  2. Once ready, start forming into round ball shapes (or use a mold) and place onto parchment paper covering a cooking sheet. Mine made about 18 fat bombs.
  3. Place sheet into the freezer and give it about 45-1 hour. Freeze overnight for best results.

To save space in my freezer, I placed the frozen bombs into a Ziploc baggie.

Are they delicious? Yep!

Are they easy? Yep!

Are they creamy and crunchy and hunger satisfying? You bet!

Give it a try for yourself, and let me know what you thought in the comments below! I’d also love to hear any other simple fat bomb recipes.

I will definitely be making more of these babies in the future. Fat bombs are seriously a lifesaver to anyone new to the low carb life making the snacking so much easier to control.

Thanks for reading!

Keep it simple, my friends.
