Inspired by peppermint patties, these keto Chocolate Peppermint Fat Bombs are a healthy low carb sugar free sweet treat! They are perfect if you are looking for a sugar free dessert or want to add more fat into your diet.
Are you on a vegan keto diet looking for a chocolate fat bomb recipe? Or perhaps you are searching for a sugar free low carb dessert because you are watching your sugar intake or carbs.
Well, you have come to the right place!
These vegan keto Chocolate Peppermint Fat Bombs are the perfect sweet treat to help you get your daily amount of fat intake while eating low carb and sugar free.
Even if you are not on a vegan keto or keto diet these easy chocolate fat bombs with a sweet peppermint filling are a healthy treat to snack on.
Anyone can benefit from some healthy fat from coconut oil and coconut butter without all the sugar that most sweets contain.
I don't remember eating many peppermint patties as a kid, and after becoming vegan almost twenty years ago, I don't think I have ever had vegan peppermint patties.
I do remember going to the movies as a teenager with a friend and eating them after a large bucket of popcorn. Other than that I have no recollection of eating them, even though I know I liked them.
So when I think of peppermint patties, I think of the movies.

I even have a sugar free Mint Chocolate Coffee Creamer that would pair nicely with these peppermint patty fat bombs.
I haven't tried it yet, but I bet one of these Chocolate Peppermint Fat Bombs melted into a cup of Vegan Bulletproof Coffee paired with the vegan coffee creamer would be a fun treat.
- Peppermint filling: Combine melted coconut butter, melted coconut oil, peppermint extract, and stevia.
- Fill mini cupcake liners, an ice cube tray, or silicone molds with a tablespoonful each of mixture.
- Freeze until solid.
- Chocolate coating: Mix cacao powder, coconut oil, stevia, and vanilla extract.
- With a fork, dip peppermint fat bombs into chocolate coating and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Place in the freezer.
These vegan fat bombs will last about 1 week in the fridge, and several months in the freezer.
How to Melt Coconut Butter
- Melt coconut butter by placing the jar in a saucepan filled with water over medium heat. Occasionally pull the jar out with oven mitts and stir it. If it's hard to stir, stick it back in the simmering water until it's ready.
- Do NOT put the coconut butter in the microwave. It will cook unevenly and burn.
- When it's easy to stir, spoon it into a measuring cup to measure out the amount you need.
- The coconut oil CAN be heated in the microwave if it's solid, but the coconut butter will cook unevenly and burn.
- Taste the filling and coating as you go - you may want more or less stevia. You should definitely taste them if you are using a different sugar free sweetener. I have only made these with stevia, so I don't know what amounts to use for anything else.
- If you are making fat bombs for the first time and aren't sure if you'll make them in the future, make them in an ice cube tray instead of buying silicone molds or cupcake liners. There's no need for fancy equipment even if you plan on making them over and over again.
- Store in the refrigerator or freezer so that the chocolate doesn't melt.
Nutrition Facts Per Fat Bomb
- 167 calories
- 17 grams fat
- 1.6 net carbs
- 1.1 grams of protein
You'll notice I only included calories, fat, net carbs, and protein. That's because those were the only nutrition facts that I concentrated on when I was on the vegan keto diet.
Also, you may want to calculate the amounts yourself. When I was counting macronutrients I noticed that different brands would end up with different results.

Can I use coca powder instead?

Yes you can use cocoa powder instead of cacao.
