Chocolate lovers, you’ll enjoy these creamy chocolate fat bombs with raisins and walnuts that come together very easily. Packed with walnuts, fresh berries and raisins for extra flavor, this low-carb dessert is a delicious way to reward your taste buds and give yourself some real nutrients.
What makes these chocolate fat bombs special?
These chocolate fat bombs come packed with healthy fats from different sources like extra virgin coconut oil, cacao butter, cacao powder and walnuts. While all these are great sources of healthy fats, one of them stands up from the crowd: extra virgin coconut oil.
Coconut oil is great for your immune system, hormones, mood and energy levels, or for your hair, skin, nails, and even for cooking with it. The MCTs in coconut oil have natural antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal properties. Make it a priority to serve as little as 1 teaspoon every day and your body will thank you for it.
Besides extra virgin coconut oil, there are a few more (healthy) reasons to love these chocolate fat bombs:

Tips and trick for making perfect chocolate fat bombs
These fat bombs will melt fast. Due to using coconut oil, these have a tendency to melt pretty fast when kept outside the fridge. Keep this is mind and store these chocolate fat bombs in the fridge when you’re not serving any.
How to make them more solid? It’s pretty easy! Replace part of the cacao butter with cacao mass. Note that since cacao mass is basically cacao powder in solid form, adding it to the recipe will also add an overall subtle bitter taste. Another solution would be to replace part of the coconut oil with cacao solid (cacao mass or cacao butter).
What about the chocolate texture?. The walnuts and berries will partially dissolve into the chocolate, adding to the overall texture of this chocolate dessert. You will love it!
Do you like you chocolate fat bombs dark? If you like your chocolate more bitter, make sure to use half the raisins since we basically use raisins as a natural sweetener.
What kind of berries should you use? Use the kind of berries that you like! Blueberries, raspberries or cranberries will work just fine. If you’re planning to use frozen berries, make sure to defrost them and remove any excess water prior to using them in this recipe.
