Coconut fat balls are high in fat, protein and very low sugar, the best way to crave that sweet tooth and get some goodness in!
Hi my lovelies!
I am finally sharing with you my beloved fat ball recipe! I’ve been posting them on Instagram for sometime and have been asked by a lot of you, what the basic ingredients are. I thought it was finally time to bring them into the blog and share the basic recipe and how you can switch these babes up. Here’s the big thing HIGH fat HIGH protein LOW sugar. These are addicting and honestly don’t last long around here. I make a batch at least twice a week sometimes if my week is gonna be extra busy I will knock out two batches. I keep them in the freezer and pop them out for a few minutes before enjoying them.
I love eating them as is.
I love adding them to my fat bowls. aka pure goodness.
They are amazing in smoothies.
Taste way too good with some Eating Evolved chocolate.
Point is you’re gonna love them and thank me for sharing these high fat beauties with you.
I have received a few question on why I eat high fat/high protein/ low sugar fat balls and I have noticed with time that this kind of style of eating works best for treating my manic depressive and PCOS.
I am a hugeeeeee snacker and will probably have a snack around 3-4 and again right before bed, I love having these around. I eat dinner on the early side to be in bed by 10 and it works for me.
