The Fat Bombs of ALL Fat Bombs
Who else is over the moon excited about these Healthy Oreo Cashew Butter Fat Bombs? Please tell me you’re drooling already!
Before we talk about everything I love about these Healthy Oreo Cashew Butter Fat Bombs, I just want to talk about nut butter cups and fat bombs in general.
We love nut butter cups and fat bombs because they are a positive healthy snack or dessert alternative to other desserts or candy bars that you will find at the store. We try to incorporate minimum ingredients into every cup. We also try to use the highest quality and whole ingredients as possible.
There is also the perk of getting a little boost of protein and healthy fat in every bomb. My point? Enjoy a fat bomb every day. Everything in moderation is always the best way to go! #makegoodchoices
The DL on Fat Bombs
What is the difference between a nut butter cup and a fat bomb? The main difference between nut butter cups and fat bombs on Fit Foodie Finds is the sweetener. Our nut butter cups are made with either maple syrup or honey. Our fat bombs use keto friendly sweeteners like liquid stevia. The beauty is that you can swap your favorite sweeteners for any of our fat bomb or nut butter cup recipes and they will be delicious!
Can I use any nut butter in a nut butter cups and fat bomb recipes? Yes! You can use whatever type of nut butter you would like in any of our nut butter cup recipes or fat bomb recipes. They key to whatever nut butter cup you decide on is to make sure it is that the nut butter you choose has a drippy consistency!
What are good keto sweetener substitutions for fat bomb recipes? There are many keto sweeteners that you can use to replace honey or maple syrup! We generally use liquid stevia when we want a true fat bomb, but there are so many other keto friendly sweeteners to choose from.
- 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup —> 40 drops of liquid stevia (1/4 teaspoon)
Are all fat bombs sugar-free? No, not all fat bombs are sugar-free. However, fat bombs are generally lower in sugar because they use alternative sweeteners that are lower in sugar. It all depends on what sweetener you decide to use in your fat bombs!
How do I store my fat bombs? Always store your fat bombs in a freezer-safe bag or container in the freezer. Most fat bomb recipes have a coconut oil base, so they will easily soften when out of the freezer!
When should I eat fat bombs? When you eat fat bombs is totally dependent on your personal goals and diets! Everything in moderation (like any food), but on the keto diet, fat bombs are low in carbohydrates and high in fat. They are sweet treats that are supposed to curb your sweet tooth craving. One for dessert or one for breakfast!
Oreo Cashew Butter Fat Bombs
What makes these nut butter cups an absolute dream is that there is no processed sugar, they are insanely creamy, and the vanilla bean gives you the delicious vanilla aftertaste of an oreo cookie. When we first tested these cups, we only used a half of a vanilla bean and decided a whole vanilla bean was necessary! If you don’t have a vanilla bean on hand, you can use vanilla extract too! 1-2 teaspoons should do the trick!
I love the triple layer of these oreo cashew butter fat bombs, but if you are running short for time, feel free to do a double layer or swirl the two layers together! They will tate great regardless of how you layer them!

Tips & Notes

- Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
