Peppermint Fat Bombs
When you need something to curb those sweet cravings, peppermint fat bombs will do the trick.
Peppermint fat bombs give you a healthy dose of beneficial coconut oil. These will keep hunger away and keep you fuller for longer. Coconut oil has many health benefits such as being antibacterial, anti fungal, its medium chain triglycerides are an excellent energy source for the brain, vitamins E, K and iron, aids immunity, weight loss and digestion.
You can also add coconut oil to your smoothies or use it in baking and frying.Look what I just discovered - peppermint fat bombs - are you over your fear of fat?
If you still have a sweet tooth, these peppermint fat bombs will satisfy that craving for that sweet taste but have no added sugar and are almost zero carb. If you still find you are hungry but don't want to reach for some kind of high carb snack, have some of these in the fridge or freezer.
peppermint fat bombs will keep in the fridge fresh for a week or 2. You can even freeze them for longer.
NOTE :: before you increase your healthy fat intake you MUST lower your carbs otherwise you are back on the standard American diet (SAD) which is high fat and high carbs AND the fat you eat must be a healthy fat such as coconut oil, butter, extra virgin olive oil, avocado etc.

How long does it take to sufficiently chill each layer? The introduction cannot be correct for the total time ("10 minutes") if the prep alone is 10 minutes.
I teach a class that has time contraints, so this is important when choosing the recipe of the week.
Hi Valerie, 5-10 minutes between layers should be plenty. It doesn't need to be completely solid before adding the second layer, but hard enough that they don't mix. This is a no-bake recipe so all the "cook time" is in the prep time.
I put them in the freezer for about 10 mins before adding second layer and when both layers were finally together and chilled, they separated when I popped out of molds. Is this because I put in freezer I instead of fridge? Thanks.
Possibly, I wonder if some moisture managed to get in between the layers when you took them out of the freezer to add the top layer?
I did not care for these. It taste like eating straight coconut and the white texture was like mush when I ate it but it was completely set up. I even measured out the ingredients to make sure I was donating it correct. Any suggestions on what I have maybe done wrong?
It may be that you are not accustomed to pure coconut oil fat bombs. The texture is oily, but keep them in the fridge or freezer so you can nibble on them slowly and enjoy the choc/peppermint flavours.
Did you use refined? It doesn’t have the coconut flavor that unrefined does
Are these the size of a mini heart mold or regular mold???
Made these today- came out great!!! Thank you
Hi! Getting ready to try these but I’m concerned about the calories! How many bombs does this recipe make? I saw 6 servings so does it only make 6 and they are 200 calories per Bomb?!
I have a question, please:
1). I don’t understand the cocoa layer. Do we just sprinkle it on? Dissolve it in hot water and pour it on?
You divide the mixture into 2. The first half, you pour into the moulds, then while that sets in the fridge, add the cocoa powder to the other half and pour that on top to create the top chocolate layer.
Is it 4.5 ounces of coconut oil by weight? Just making sure I'm making it correctly 🙂
Yes, it's by weight.
could I make these without sugar. currently on a no sugar kick and i know peppermint is good at curbing an appitite!
There is no sugar in this recipe - yay!
