Tips and Variations

  • Storage - You can store these keto gingerbread fat bombs in an airtight container in the fridge, freezer, or even in the pantry. They will last in the pantry for about 3 days, in the fridge for a week, and in the freezer for a month.
  • Reheating - These holiday fat bombs are meant to be served chilled. If warmed up, they may crumble apart. However, you can attempt warming them for a few seconds in the microwave if you prefer them warm. If serving from the freezer, let them thaw on their own until they reach an edible temperature. 
  • Dip in icing - You can make a keto icing by mixing keto powdered sugar and almond milk or water in a small dish. 1 tablespoon of liquid per ½ cup of powdered sugar are the optimal measurements to work with.
  • My mixture is too dry - If your mixture is dry and won’t hold together to from the balls, melt your butter instead of simply softening it. You can also try adding just a dribble of water or other keto-friendly liquid like almond milk.
  • My mixture is too gooey - If your mixture is too wet to work with, try adding a bit of almond or coconut flour at a time until the desired consistency is reached. Don’t add too much at once. 
  • Skip the chilling step - If your keto gingerbread fat bombs are holding together well, you can skip the chilling step altogether if desired.
  • Add coconut oil - If you want a bigger burst of healthy fats, swap some of the butter out for coconut oil.
