Ketogenic Fat Balls

Ketogenic Fat Balls

PREP Time: 15 minutes, TOTAL Time: 15 minutes, SERVINGS: 16 balls

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups raw nuts see note*
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup nut or seed butter of choice see note**
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs optional
  • 2 scoops Vital Proteins Marine Collagen
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup see note***
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Add the raw nuts to food processor and process until finely chopped. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and process until a thick paste has formed. The dough should be sticky.
  2. Roll the fat ball mixture into 16 to 20 balls. Store in a zip lock bag in the refrigerator or freezer (balls thaw quickly, so I store mine in the freezer).

Recipe Notes

*Suggested 1 cup raw almonds and ½ cup macadamia nuts, but any combination works.

**If you keep a paleo diet, use sunflower butter and avoid using peanut butter

***Use a zero-sugar sweetener such as Erythritol, monk fruit sweetener, or xylitol to make these a completely sugar-free ball for a ketogenic diet. If a ketogenic diet isn’t the goal, increase the amount of pure maple syrup to up to 5 tablespoons for a sweeter ball.
