Are you on a vegan keto diet and 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 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.

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.
