This low carb energy bites / balls recipe is buttery, sweet, a little salty, and hard to eat just one.  Luckily they are less than 2 net carbs per serving! They are one of my favorite fat bombs!

 One of my favorite cookies in the whole world are the Danish butter cookies.  You know the ones…they magically appear around Christmas time in that blue tin.  Its is definitely hard to eat just one.  In fact, I usually eat several because I am a self proclaimed cookie monster!

Since cookies are my weakness, I set out to make a fat bomb recipe that will tide me over through the holidays.  I think I have succeeded!  These low carb energy bites are so reminiscent of those infamous cookies, and they are so easy to make!


I know that most people associate an energy bite with being high in protein, but when you are on a low carb diet, you want your low carb recipes to give energy from fat and we try to keep our protein moderate.  These fat bombs are the perfect energy source for a low carb diet as most of the calories are from fat.





I like to keep a batch of these low carb cookies in the freezer so I always have a sweet treat on hand.  Having low carb recipes on hand like this keep me from munching on other things that I shouldn’t, like real Danish butter cookies!


See how easy these are to make in this video:

I have been getting so much feedback from this fat bomb recipe.  Everyone loves it!  People are adding lemon, coconut, cinnamon…the possibilities are endless!  These really are a blank canvas so experiment and let me know how you customized them!

    When I made these I used Almond flour but it was not nearly wet enough. I ended up having to add 1.5 tbsp of heavy cream, 1 tbsp of water and 2 tbsp of butter to get the right consistency. But, when I entered the regular ingredients (not what I added in) into My Fitness Pal, it said there were 124 calories, 4.8 carbs, 11.6 fat, 3.5 protein and 1.5 fiber.

      what brand of almond flour did you use? Was it finely ground?

        Honestly, I’m not 100% the brand but I emptied the bag into another container when I bought it, but yes, it is finely ground.
        On a side note, I added some cinnamon and they were really good!
