    Very good! I've been looking for a sugar-free fat bomb.
  2. Apicius
    What a great recipe. Agreed that it's good to see a fat bomb without sugar or fake sugars.

    Pinch of vanilla? Not vanilla extract?

    Thanks for response Kristin!

    I have another few more questions...

    How many balls do we make? And what is the serving size?

    These fat bombs are delicious. Is it possible to concoct some more fat bomb recipes please. x

    I just made these and they are delicious. Personally, I don't like cardamom but I love cinnamon and vanilla. So I put loads of cinnamon and fresh vanilla into the butter and I also used roasted coconut flakes. Really tasty and I'll definitely do these again. :-)

    Yucky butter mess. I had to add significantly more cinnamon, cardamon, vanilla to even get a little flavour. Need at least double the coconut to go with that amount of butter. Finally had to add a few drops of real maple syrup to make this palatable.

    The bombs Bombed. Horrible!
  10. Ryan
    Ya this is just basically eating butter... gross
  11. Claire
    Could we substitute you half the butter for half cream cheese?
    it would make the texture better and i think you could actually make smaller snack siballs because they would hold better.

    what about listing some variations?

    - rolled in nuts
    - companies do cooking grade aromatherapy oils such as peppermint, lemon, lime, aniseed, orange, rose etc

  12. Melissa
    I don't like coconut, so what is something that can be used as a substitution instead?
  13. Mary
    Half butter, half cream cheese. I also added 2 drops of stevia (for 2 servings) Delicious!!!

    You guys the fat bombs appear to all be made out of butter, are we supposed to eat these or put them into something??? Im kinda confused cuz eating butter and coconut does not sound appealing at all. THanks in advance for the advice!!

    Hi... read the above comments. I used 2x coconut, and spices. Putting mixture in fridge for about 15 minutes , and spraying coconut oil in my hands seem to help make the rolling-dipping process less gooey! I also used a melon baller. Hope these comments help!

    Put mine in the freezer for a fast chill before forming balls, thanks to the input here. Helped some, but I ended up using it as a topping on other recipes.
  18. Nava
    I liked the flavor but they didn't form into shapes even though I added coconut.. Ended up putting everything in a jar and into the fridge to eat with a teaspoon

    I did not think much of these, not a lot of flavour. I did however neglect the vanilla as I had none, so this may have been the problem. I will try again with vanilla and add double the spice. I think ginger may be the go, so may try that as well. Was unable to roll into balls, so placed in silicon mini muffin trays and this was easy.

    Enjoyed eating these. Love cardammon so will add double next time. Handy to have in the fridge.
  21. Libby
    Ugh, awful. So much worse than eating a blob of plain butter. I followed the recipe exactly and couldn't believe how gross these bombs are. Was sure I'd need to eat a proper cardamom pastry to cleanse my palate after this atrocity. I will not be using recipes from the "cook" again!
  22. Leslie
    Mary got it perfect!!! I did half butter half cream cheese , doubled the spices sbd doubled the toasted coconut flakes. Added a single packet of Truvia for a bit of sweetness and ....perfection. Thanks again for the modifications, Mary!!
  23. june
    AWFUL!!! Was there something missing from this recipe like eggs?
    I doubled the coconut and ended up with something that tasted like a stick of butter rolled in coconut.
    This recipe is a complete waste of time and a stick of butter!!
    It was also my first Diet Doctor recipe, so verrrrrrry disappointed.
    I hope the other recipes are better than this!!

    These were good! I had to place in the freezer for about 15 min once mixed in order to roll them out.
  26. Ang
    When are you supposed to eat these?

    Way too much butter - just a sloppy greasy mess. Even after adding another CUP of coconut it still wouldn't form a ball.

    I agree!! Same thing happened with me - terrible recipe.

  29. Amy B
    How does this have a 4 star review? It is just butter! Tastes terrible. A few ingredients missing for sure. Don’t waste the ingredients
  30. Telmo
    Just followed the recipe and loved it! Absolutely delicious. Everything mixed perfectly. 5 stars from me.
  31. Leigh
    Yuk! I love cardamom, vanilla and cinnamon. But these are like eating a bland textured butter. Kind of disgusting.
  32. Ágúst
    Decided to try this recipe. Was not disapointed, loved it!
  33. Jen
    After reading comments, decided against making these...sounded easy, but all that butter and comments were a turnoff!
  34. Jillen
    Can i use ginger in place of cardamom, seeing it's from tbe same family?

    We have not experimented with alternative ingredients in this recipe.
  36. Katie
    I doubled the recipe and only got 12 "walnut sized" balls. I think somethings off a bit on measurements/yield. And how much does constitute a "serving"?

    A single batch should yield 10 servings.
  38. Ashley
    Very disappointing. Needed WAY more coconut. Also larger flaked coconut does not work. No flavor. Tasted like eating crunchy butter. Could not form into balls.
  39. Heather w
    Impossible to form balls. Second recipe off the website and second that has been terrible!
  40. Neal
    This base recipe is extremely bland and there's not nearly enough coconut. I added a lot more coconut and then sprinkled the final product again with cardamom and cinnamon to give them some additional flavor. They could use more vanilla as well. Next time I'll also use salted butter.
  41. Arlene
    I made them, but a little different. I used almond extract and added a tablespoon of Swerve. Man, they were good! Better than an Almond Joy!
  42. Brenda
    Look around there’s another one way better it’s coconut oil instead of butter! Gotta make sure to refrigerate or freeze then it’s fantastic! Just need to search! I agree butter one sounds unpleasant I won’t be making it!
  43. Chrissy
    These are great! I was looking for a fat bomb without sweeteners, and this worked perfectly. It satiates the hunger without triggering sweet cravings. I stirred in half the coconut while it was still warm to help it incorporate into the butter. Then I chilled the mixture while the rest of the coconut cooled to make it easier to roll into balls. I'll make a double batch for the freezer next time I make these.
  44. Chiara
    Great fat bombs! I added a tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder and they turned out delicious :)
  45. Janice Engle
    Add cream cheese to fat bombs some sweetener. Freeze balls. Yum.
  46. Nichola
    Done these today, added a little more cinnamon and Vanilla and little more coconut and they taste lovely.

    I was expecting a Butter taste as most of the comments stipulated it was eating a stick of butter lol but they do not taste like butter.

    You dont get many out of mixture I got 5 decent sized ones which would be enough for me tbh but I'd assume you double up ingredients if you want more out of mixture.

    All in all I like them 👏👌

    A quick and easy snack for me
