  • Place baking sheet in freezer for at least 30 minutes to allow fat bombs to set up.

  • When set up, remove fat bombs from baking sheet and enjoy! Keep refrigerated unless actively eating, as the cream cheese mixture will soften at room temperature.


  • If you're making larger fat bombs, you may need 2 packages of cookies to fully coat. HighKey Snickerdoodle Mini Cookies make these fat bombs taste just like cheesecake, but you can use any keto cookies you like to coat the cream cheese balls. Don't be afraid to play with the flavors! Note: other brands of keto cookies may not be gluten-free. HighKey Snickerdoodle cookies are.
  • I love Swerve Sweetener, but you can use any sweetener you like. Monkfruit would work great, and so would a few drops of liquid Stevia.
  • Philadelphia Original Cream Cheese has the lowest carb content of any cream cheese we've found.
Recipe yields approximately 12 fat bombs. Nutritional values shown reflect information for 1 fat bomb out of 12. One batch can yield more fat bombs by using a smaller scoop to portion cream cheese mixture into balls. Nutritional values will change based on the number of fat bombs made from one batch and the specific brands of ingredients used.
