I have made a few fat bomb recipes and these ginger fat bombs have to be my favourite. Fat bombs will keep you fuller for longer, keep your carb cravings away, and contain a healthy dose of coconut oil.

Coconut oil is making a huge comeback for various reasons. It is high in lauric acid which is anti fugal and anti bacterial. It is also a great source of MCT (medium chain triglycerides) which are metabolised in the liver for rapid energy, and can produce ketones which have been shown to be therapuetic for brain function.

Snacking on coconut oil will keep hunger away.

I use a combination of Coconut Butter and Coconut Oil\"\". Coconut butter is similar to coconut oil but the butter still has some fibre and white meat from the coconut. It has a richer taste.

The difference between them is similar to comparing peanut butter with peanut oil. There are some carbs in coconut butter, but most of it is fibre and it is great for those who do not like the texture of straight coconut oil.

If you like these, take a look at Chocolate Fat Bombs with walnuts or my Paleo Easter Eggs (just call them fat bombs any other time of the year). All are super simple recipes to make when you get hungry and want a quick snack.

  1. hi there, can you make these just with coconut oil? Just wondering how to make these without the coconut butter?

    1. Yes you can but it will be a different texture (similar to my chocolate fat bombs). If you wanted a richer flavour, maybe use coconut oil and add some extra desiccated/shredded coconut.

  2. These sound so good! What is the dried ginger?

  3. what do you mean by dried ginger? Is it powdered ginger or something else? Thanks.

  4. I will making all 3 of your fat bombs very soon. I gotta invest in some candy molds first! Or alot of mini cupcake papers…

  5. Definitely trying this – have been craving ginger cookies like crazy! How much of these are ok for snack at a time?

  6. 12 calories? I think you have an error there.

    Sound Yumm!

    1. Oops, yes you are correct. I will amend that right now. Should be 120.2 I clearly needed more coconut oil that day for brain function 😉

  7. I think it’s great that you can simply use ice cube trays – and isn’t it amazing how coconut oil is getting so popular – plus it’s so healthy for you.

    All the best Jan

    How long can you keep these? How should they be stored?

  9. Hi – where can I buy coconut butter from? I couldn’t find it in Pak n Save, although perhaps I was looking in the wrong area of the supermarket:)

    1. I buy mine from New World and it is above the peanut butters! Odd place, I would have put it with the oils or the health aisle. Hope you find it.

  10. Lila Vagana says:

    Loving these and they’re so easy to make. I used coconut sugar however will try stevia next time because the coconut sugar did not dissolve well.

  11. Pam Fuller says:

    Have you tried grated fresh ginger. Probably needs to be well mixed, but think I will give it a go, will let you know how it goes. Have tried strawberry and blueberry bombs they are great too.

  12. Could you use grass fed butter instead of coconut butter?

    1. Sure. It would have a different flavour as coconut butter is, well, coconutty. But I looooove the taste of butter too. Let me know how it works out 🙂

    2. kassykilley says:

      Did you try the butter? I’m intrigued. I’m debating on these as I like some things like ferments with fresh ginger, but never liked ginger cookies.

  13. made these with lemon rind instead of ginger…not a big fan of ginger, but LOVE lemon…yummo!

      1. What’s the difference between coconut butter and coconut oil?

  14. Someone asked about using finely grated fresh ginger… Have you an idea about that? I have lots of fresh at home.. how much would I use?
    Thanks!

    1. I would just add it to your taste and liking. It’s hard to give an equivalent as fresh ginger can be so different from one piece to another. Be aware of the liquid in fresh ginger which may make the coconut oil separate. If you are successful, let me know what formula worked. I always prefer fresh ginger in my cooking so your idea would be lovely.

      1. Hi Libby,
        I did add fresh Ginger… 1 tsp finely grated. I mixed it with a packet of Truvia and then I worked it by hand in together with the shredded coconut, which absorbed the moisture (the coconut being dried was the theory). Then I added that to the coconut oil and coconut butter. It worked! No separation and a mild flavor of Ginger. Next time I will add 2 teaspoons of ginger! LOL Because I LOVE Ginger!
        Thanks for your great blog! Peace!
        Disa

        1. Awesome Disa and thank you for taking the time to stop by and add your fabulous results. I love it when readers adapt my recipes and make adjustments. Have a wonderful day. Libby.

  15. I love the idea of the ginger, but I do not like the taste of coconut, and barely tolerate it when using coconut oil. Any suggestions for modifications?

  16. Anyone know where you can get coconut butter in Australia (Perth)? I should have bought some when I was home in NZ at Easter!

    1. You can make your own coconut butter with coconut flakes and a food processor.

  17. Can make coconut butter very eadily in a processor or thermomix. Just need cheap dessicated cocobut

    Hi Libby – I have been doing low carb for a few years now and lost 14 kilograms – I count the carbs in everything I eat and NOT the calories – my question is can you gain weight by only counting the carbs, I was logging my food in my fitness pal and was surprised how many calories I was consuming by consuming so much meat etc. I don’t eat fruit except for a few frozen berries.

    I love this site as I was doing low carb (Atkins) and not doing the high fat component. I cooked the shepherd’ s pie last night and I always left the cauli in pieces and I did the mash, was fantastic. I am going to do the fat bombs, and some other of your recipes on the weekend.

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    1. I do believe calories do count but I do not count calories. 100 calories from fat or protein are metabolised completely different to say 100 calories from sugar and carbs. The sugar and carbs will increase our insulin which drives our fat storage and hunger. Yes if we eat far too much then we could end up putting on weight but generally when we increase our healthy fats it will curb our appetite. The main reason people may put on weight when they go low carb is because they haven’t gone low carb enough. Time and time again readers say they have gone low carb but are still eating rice crackers, beer (liquid bread), low carb fake foods or too many low carb treats. Part of the ethos of going low carb is to not overindulge in anything, that’s pretty much the reason why most of us have ended up overweight in the first place and with unhealthy attitudes to food. Eat until 80% full is a good motto to live by, variety and balance too. Enjoy your baking this weekend, it’s winter here so I’ll be putting a roast on and baking up a storm for the week ahead. 🙂

  19. Could one use the coconut manna? is that the same as coconut butter?

  20. Shellihob says:

    So far haven’t been able to find coconut butter. Has anyone found it in woolies? If so, whereabouts would it be? Also, in case I can’t find it, how do I make it out of coconut flakes? Thanks.

    1. Easy to make in food processor or thermomix. Just blitz dessicated coconut for about 2-3 mins

      1. I see you use a Thermomix. I want to get one, but was worried it wouldn’t work with the KETO DIET. Is the Thermomix conducive with the KETO DIET?? The person I’m working with did not know what the KETO DIET is, so they could not tell me.

  21. I made these but added a teaspoon of lime juice…..delicious!!!

  22. Dudley Shumate says:

    I used grass-fed butter in place of coconut butter because I wanted to make these NOW and that’s what I had in the frig! 🙂 Added appx 1/2 tsp each cinnamon and ground cardamom. Waiting not-so-patiently for them to firm up. I can tell you licking the bowl was TASTY!! (used 1 packet stevia, doubled how full I did my molds so making 5 pieces v 10). Pretty big deal for me to love the taste so much and there is no chocolate!!

  23. Geri Rees says:

    I made these coconut ginger fat bombs today….even though I didn’t stir quite long enough for the sweetener to dissolve, they are absolutely delicious! I love the combination of coconut and ginger. Almost made me feel I was on a beautiful tropical island, instead of in beautiful, but very very wet Wales. Love your recipes Libby, they make LCHF a wonderful life style. My Diabetic Consultant is delighted with my control…thank you ?X

  24. How are you calculating the carbohydrates? When I put this into Cronometer is said this recipe had 9.69 grams in each serving.

  25. 5 stars
    These things are so delicious they should be on the sweet treats list! I was hesitant about making fat bombs because my husband made some once (not from your recipes) and they were so awful, I felt like I was eating pure lard! Now I can safely eat my healthy fat and be sure to get enough of it every day. I have difficulty eating so much fat. Also I have seen many people asking about where to buy ***coconut butter***. I had difficulty with this one too the first time I had a recipe calling for it too. I found mine at an organic store in the same place as peanut butter. Good luck all. Thank you Libby.
