Metabolism Boosting Coconut Oil FAT BOMBS!

I’ve been making this coconut oil candy (I call them “coconut oil fat bombs”) for years. They’re nice to have on hand when I have sugar cravings now and again. I mix these into my coffee (you know I love my coconut oil coffee). When I blend these up in my coffee It tastes like a peppermint mocha. Yum!!

What’s nice about them is since they’re made of coconut oil it’s really hard to indulge. Just one of these will satisfy my sugar craving. If I want a little bit of flavor, I’ll add a teaspoon of peppermint extract. Peppermint affects the brain’s satiety center, which triggers a sensation of fullness after meals.

If you struggle to lose fat despite exercising and eating right, or if you have low energy levels, difficulty sleeping, sensitivity to cold/heat, digestive issues, or brain fog, it’s possible that you might have a Thyroid disorder. If you’re like me and have a sluggish thyroid, coconut oil is excellent to add to your diet because it helps your thyroid!

“When added to a balanced diet, coconut oil slightly lowers the cholesterol level, which is exactly what is expected when a dietary change raisesthyroid function. This same increase in thyroid function and metabolic rate explains why people and animals that regularly eat coconut oil are lean, and remarkably free of heart disease and cancer.” – Ray Peat

Don’t worry about eating something that’s high in fat because coconut oil is a healthy fat. When you eat MCTs (like in coconut oil) this results in accelerated metabolic conversion! That is, instead of being stored as fat, the calories contained in MCTs are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use by the body.

So if you’re trying to cut back on the sugar but want a healthy treat, try these coconut oil fat bombs!

  • Jon Ann M Cromyak March 21, 2017, 4:05 pm

    I don’t have and can’t find vanilla bean powder, what can be used in place of it?

    • The Coconut Mama March 26, 2017, 11:08 am

      You can use vanilla extract or leave it out.

  • Martha Ellen March 14, 2017, 11:54 am

    Do these need to stay frozen, refrigerated, or are they shelf stable once solidified? Not quite sure from the directions.

    • The Coconut Mama April 2, 2017, 12:13 pm

      It’s best to keep the in the refrigerator or freezer.

  • Elizabeth March 5, 2017, 6:54 pm

    Hi! I’m wondering your take on cadmium levels shown to be found in toxic amounts in cocoa powder?? I’m wondering if you think it’s safe in moderation? I’m so torn about whether to give to my daughter.
    Thank you! I look forward to your thoughts!

  • Denise Hank March 5, 2017, 11:21 am

    How many batches of these do you get out of the 1oz bag of vanilla bean powder?

    • The Coconut Mama April 2, 2017, 12:14 pm

      A lot! I’ve had the same bag for a few years and I use vanilla bean powder almost every day.

  • jennifer February 23, 2017, 6:57 pm

    How can I substitute erythritol for stevi

  • Jan February 15, 2017, 4:03 pm

    I had a Thyroidectomy in April this past year and take Levathyroxin for it. Would these fat bombs help me too?

  • Dottie February 8, 2017, 5:26 pm


  • Denise February 7, 2017, 9:01 pm

    I’d love to try this. Can I use a couple drops of vanilla extract instead of vanilla bean powder?

    • The Coconut Mama February 9, 2017, 10:20 am

      Yes, that’ll work just fine. 🙂

  • Charlene February 7, 2017, 12:22 pm

    Hello–just wondering how well does the cocoa dissolve when you mix it in your coffee? So far my coco doesn’t dissolve well.

  • Chloe February 2, 2017, 6:32 pm

    How many calories each and how many should it make

    • Renée February 20, 2017, 3:16 am

      How many servings does this make and and how many calo6per bomb this size

    • The Coconut Mama April 2, 2017, 12:23 pm

      Between 20-25 (if you use the same molds I use). If you use honey there will be more calories. I used stevia. Each fat bomb is approximately 95 calories. Hope this helps!

  • Robyn December 7, 2016, 12:56 pm

    I’ve just recently gotten into fat bombs as a way to get a load of healthy fat into me and my family, other than just straight coconut oil. .. this turned out delicious, I used centrifuged coconut oil, so no taste, but if I had it on hand, I’d use Virgin coconut oil because I love coconut flavor. Used 1/2 cup cocoa powder, cacao powder would be excellent there too. About 1tsp vanilla extract, and around 3 tbsp honey. I didn’t want to make noise with a blender so I just whisked it all together over a double boiler to melt the coconut oil, and it worked decently, although I could tell the honey wanted to settle out. I mixed occasionally while pouring into molds, but I’m sure the last ones I poured will be sweeter than the first ones, but boy are they yummy! I can see where there is a lot of flexibility in this recipe for creativity to strike. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Danielle November 3, 2016, 5:19 pm

    What is the nutrient info for these fat bombs?

  • Dina October 27, 2016, 6:03 pm

    Can you tell how many calories are the coconut bombs

    • The Coconut Mama April 2, 2017, 12:24 pm

      Approximately 95 calories per fat bomb.

  • Karen October 20, 2016, 8:11 am

    Oooh, going to try these! Am wondering how many this will make in a typical ice cube mold. (I am not able to see comments so not sure if this was asked already) Thanks!! 🙂

  • Nicole September 7, 2016, 1:26 pm

    Is the coconut oil supposed to be solid or melted? What is the volume approx of each “cube” in the ice cube tray?

  • Michelle September 4, 2016, 3:54 pm

    I’ve had thyroid disease for almost 15 years and I really trying to find more recipes that will help. I just whipped these up today and they are super great! Thank you so much!

  • Liz Fogg June 11, 2016, 1:24 am

    Do you recommend leaving these in the freezer once made? I’m trying to find something to carry with me during the day and during long races when I need a pick-me-up before one is provided by the race. Thanks!!

  • Michele March 3, 2016, 2:48 pm

    How many does one eat in a day?

  • Heather February 28, 2016, 3:31 pm

    Have you made these with other variations such as lemon or lime, without the cocoa? I’d like to use YL lemon or lime essential oils in them.

  • Vano February 20, 2016, 7:30 pm

    Would cacao powder work intead of cocoa?

  • Lisa February 6, 2016, 8:33 pm

    Hi Tiffany, This sounds delicious – but I’m finding the vanilla bean powder to be pretty expensive. Are there any alternatives that you’d recommend?

  • marya February 1, 2016, 10:03 am

    dear Tiffiany: I’am one of your subscibers, I want to know can you make the
    coconut fat bombs in a nutri bullet?

  • Toni January 16, 2016, 6:20 pm

    Do you use the solid coconut oil that tastes like coconut or the milder liquid one?

  • Amy January 13, 2016, 11:50 am

    Instead of using Liquid Stevia how much Raw Honey would you suggest I use?

    • The Coconut Mama April 2, 2017, 12:25 pm

      I would start with a few tablespoons of honey and add more to taste. Depends on how sweet you like them.

  • Heather J Grammon January 11, 2016, 11:30 am

    These coconut oil treats look so delish, I think my kids will love these so I will have to try them out

  • Jennifer January 6, 2016, 8:07 am

    Yum- these look great! Can you tell me the nutrition facts?

  • Karen January 6, 2016, 6:20 am

    Can you use honey to sweeten?

    • The Coconut Mama January 6, 2016, 8:22 am

      Yes! Honey is a great natural alternative to stevia.

      • Robbi January 9, 2016, 11:27 am

        How much honey would you suggest?

  • sherry January 5, 2016, 2:21 pm

    I keep reading that peppermint essential oil is not safe to ingest. Or is this too small a quantity to be concerned with? Do you have any idea what the equivalent of peppermint extract would be?

    • The Coconut Mama January 6, 2016, 8:23 am

      It depends on the source. I use Young Living and their peppermint essential oil is safe to ingest. You can use a 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract instead if you prefer.

  • Laura January 5, 2016, 12:34 pm

    How many calories in each bomb?

    • Shanna January 23, 2016, 1:27 pm

      I’ve made these a couple of times and they’re yummy! However, I just made a batch and there is a white layer of coconut oil on the top. I melted them down and remixed them, but they separated again. Any idea why this is happening or how I can fix it? They still taste delicious.


  • Sunny January 4, 2016, 3:42 pm

    Do you keep them in the freezer?

  • Barb December 27, 2015, 11:42 pm

    Can I use vanilla extract instead of powder?

    • The Coconut Mama December 30, 2015, 9:15 am

      Yes! You can use equal amount of vanilla extract.

  • Isa Ryan December 27, 2015, 6:02 pm

    Yuuuuummm I used to make something a lot like this and you’ve inspired me to bust them out again! Thanks!
