What is a Fat Bomb?

If you aren’t yet familiar, allow me to formally introduce you to the scrumptious world of fat bombs.

Fat bombs are made with cream cheese and sweetened with low-carb erythritol, so they have a distinct cheesecake flavor without any granulated sugar. The fat content is meant to help keep your body in the state of ketosis, while still enjoying life’s little pleasures.

This simple snack-treat recipe is terrific for those coming off holiday eating and heading straight into keto or low carb diets. Or for anyone that likes a sweet goodie that isn’t simply loaded with sugar or carbs!

The Best Keto Cheesecake Bites

This is by far our favorite low-carb cheesecake bite recipe. It’s ready in just 10 minutes, with no-baking necessary. It can even be made ahead so treats are ready to enjoy chilled from the fridge or freezer whenever a craving hits!

We’ve kept things simple to get you started, and have topped these cream cheese bites with just a bit of shaving chocolate. However, you can totally mix things up by adding in cocoa powder for chocolate cheesecake fat bombs, or lemon zest for lemon cheesecake fat bombs.

How to Make Cream Cheese Fat Bombs

First, use an electric mixer to beat the softened cream cheese and butter together in a large bowl until very smooth. This step helps avoid clumps, so don’t skip!

Next, add in the erythritol, heavy cream, vanilla, and salt. Beat again until smooth. Taste, then add extra sweetener if desired.

Set 24 mini muffin liners on a baking sheet (or in mini muffin pans.) Use a 1 ½ tablespoon cookie scoop to portion out cheesecake balls and place one ball in each muffin liner.

Alternatively, transfer the smooth cream cheese mixture to a piping bag (or zipper plastic bag with the corner snipped). Then pipe equal amounts into the mini muffin liners.

Recipe Variations

  • I’ve made these bites moderately sweet by using 5 tablespoons of sweetener. Feel free to add 1-3 more tablespoons of erythritol for sweeter treats.
  • Make chocolate cheesecake bites by adding 2-3 tablespoons of unsweetened chocolate powder.
  • Add lemon zest when blending the cream cheese mixture to make the fat bombs with a bright citrus flavor.
  • As-is this recipe makes 24 small bites. Easily halve or double the ingredients for more or less fat bombs as needed.

Storage Tips

Keep no-bake keto cheesecake bites in an airtight container. Store for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

The fat bombs will freeze well for up to 3 months. I suggest you wrap the airtight container in a layer of aluminum foil before placing it in the freezer. Enjoy frozen or let the bites thaw overnight in the fridge.
