Recipe by Mark Sisson, founder of Primal Kitchen.
If you haven’t heard of the ketogenic diet, it’s a low-carb, high-fat eating plan designed to turn your body into a fat-burning machine. But don’t let the name scare you — these keto fat bombs offer just that: a high-fat, low-carb snack you can enjoy pre- or post-workout.
Mark Sisson, founder of Primal Kitchen, says, “One of my main goals is to make healthy eating exciting, in addition to maximizing nutrition with an emphasis on healthy fat and avoiding excess carbohydrates.” His chocolaty keto fat bombs feature heart-healthy, monounsaturated fat from Primal Kitchen’s Extra-Virgin Avocado Oil. The chocolate protein powder packs collagen from grass-fed cows, healthy fats from coconut milk and prebiotic fiber. Since these bombs are high in fat, you’ll want to stick to one serving, which should fill you right up!
