While I have never been a big sweets person, keto fat bombs have become my go-to way to end the day and get my fat macros in. I’ve experimented with all sorts of recipes like my chocolate nut butter fat bombs which are my favorite, however these come in at a close second! These use Isopure Zero Carb Protein Powder which is one of the best keto protein powders available. I use them in my keto smoothies and in many of my keto fat bomb recipes!

The sweetness in these comes from the protein powder – asI mentioned above, I use IsoPure’s Zero Carb protein powder however you can definitely experiment with other protein powders and flavors – just make sure they are sugar-free! The real secret to what makes these oh-so-good for you is the Maca Powder. Beyond the healthy fat from coconut oil, maca powder packs anti-aging and hormone regulating properties that makes these a Ketology super snack!

What is Maca Powder?

Maca Powder is made from – you guessed it – maca which is a Peruvian cruciferous root vegetable. It’s been a hot supplement for a while and with good reason – the powder is used by athletes to boost energy however the real benefits lie in its help in regulating hormones – specifically in pre-menopausal and menopausal women – and helps stabilize mood swings.

Also – maca is beneficial in alleviating stress, increasing libido (always a good thing), and improving brain function.

A little maca powder goes a long way – we only use a tablespoon in this fat bomb recipe but adding it to smoothies or coffee too!
