I love to keep fat bombs on hand for a quick bite to keep me from getting hangry.

You can call these fat bombs, energy bites, energy balls, no bake cookies, or sugar free cookies.  No matter what you call them, they are delicious!

These little bites have all of the flavors of a gingerbread cookie with none of the carbs.  They are so good cold out of the fridge!

Speaking of cookies, these are very similar to my most popular recipe on my website, my low carb cookies / low carb butter cookie energy bites!

The ingredients used in this fat bomb recipe are:

All I did was mix all of my dry ingredients together, then added the melted butter and molasses.  The batter is quite thick because you want it to stick together so it can be formed into balls.

I used a small cookie scoop to scoop out the batter and then rolled them into balls.  I then put them in an air tight container in the refrigerator.  All of these fat bomb recipes are great to have on hand so I don’t make any bad decisions when I am hungry.

I love making different flavors of these fat bombs.  Here is a pumpkin cheesecake energy bite that I made during pumpkin season!

  • Add all of the dry ingredients to a medium sized bowl and mix to combine.  Stir in the melted butter and molasses to form a thick dough.  Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out a portion of dough and roll it into a ball.  Place the balls in an air tight container and refrigerate for 1 hour.  Keep in the refrigerator for snacking!  Makes 16 balls


Per fat bomb: 120 calories / 11g fat / 3.5g carbs / 1.5g fiber / 3g protein
  • I put molasses as optional because that is not usually something most people keep in their pantry.  If you leave it out, the fat bombs might be a little less rich in gingerbread flavor but it will not be a significant difference.

    I have a dumb question, if yiy wanted to take these to work go eat as a mid-afternoon snack and you did not have a refrigerator, would they be a soupy mess?

      I think they would hold up fine as long as your office isn’t too hot. They will be a little soft. I wouldn’t leave them out more than a day though because of the butter.

    Any thoughts on how to use coconut flour instead of almond flour (allergic). Saw the one comment that said they used less almond flour and then eyeballed the coconut flour but I can’t really use any almond. I have a conversion chart that says to half the flour and + 4 eggs but I do t want to use raw eggs.

      You would need much less coconut flour, about 1/3 of the amount

    These are wonderful! I wonder what a mixture of swerve granular & the swerve brown would be like. Idk, maybe next time… because, oh, there will be a next time😄

    Just made these -dough tastes lovely! I had to add a lot more butter in though and I measured everything out. I did have to use a granulated sweetener though could that have made a difference?

    I ran the ingrediants – not the molasses –for carbs– the results for 1 serving carbs 13.0, fiber 1.5. Site was SparkPeople.

    What calculator did you use which resulted in 3.5 carbs per serving?

      • jenniferbanz
      • September 15, 2018

      My guess is that it calculated the Swerve in the carb count but the sugar alcohols should be deducted. The only main thing with carbs is the almond flour (24 net carbs) and the molasses (5 net carbs). That would be for the whole recipe.

    These are delicious!! Thank you! I add 1 Tbsp of ginger and 1 tbsp of cinnamon for extra spice. So good, and a special treat for my keto lifestyle.

    My favorite fat bomb. I like them with my coffee or tea.
    The perfect recipe. I’ve tried varying the ingredients, never as good. Thank you, you save the day!

    I don’t usually leave comments, but dang. These little balls were exactly what I needed. I haven’t had much trouble sticking to keto, but I’ll admit I got a little bitter and sad whenever I’d stop somewhere for coffee and have to pass on the pumpkin loaf. Anyway, these ginger balls are definitely doing the trick. Thanks for the recipe.

    Does the nutrition information include the molasses? How would it change if the molasses were left out?

    Which Swerve – granulated or powdered, please?

      Either will work in this recipe

    These hit the spot!! I used a tad less almond flour and eye balled some coconut flour till the texture was right and also added clove and cayenne pepper for additional spice and heat…new favorite fat bomb!

      Cayenne sounds like a great addition!

    I made these tonight! I’m just waiting for them to get out of the fridge. I put in 1/16 teaspoon of allspice as well because I love that spice in gingerbread. I also substituted Xylitol for the Swerve, so I think they are a little more dry than they should be as I heard Xylitol has that affect on baked goods, but I can’t wait to try them!

    Wow, these are exactly what I’ve been craving. I ate a gingerbread-style oatmeal every morning for breakfast, and I miss it so much. These give me the flavor, a decadent texture, low carbs, good fats, and no grains.
    Thank you so much!
