CHOCOLATE ALMOND BUTTER FAT BOMBS

WHY EAT FAT BOMBS?

-Fat is digested slowly in the digestive track, keeping you full longer than protein or carbs
-Fats slow the breakdown of carbohydrates, helping to keep blood sugar more stable.
-Our bodies need fat in order to absorb fat soluble vitamins.
-Monounsaturated fats can lower “bad” LDL cholesterol and increase “good” HDL cholesterol.
-There is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate, BUT…
There are essential fatty acids that the body cannot synthesized and must be obtained through food. We need these fatty acids in order to build specialized fats like omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

These taste like a reese’s peanut butter cup, and I don’t feel guilty eating three or ten ;)

These are perfect if you need a little something to tie you over till your next meal without throwing back some processed carbs. They are so easy to make and the possibilities with different ingredients are endless.
