Cooking Methods for Vanilla Latte Fat Bomb
The most important thing to remember when whipping up these fat bombs is to keep the heat to a minimum. I like to use a mini-crockpot because it helps me control the heat and not get the mixture too hot.
If you're using a stove top… not to worry. Just keep your heat on low and even turn off the burner once the pan has heated. It doesn't take much to get coconut oil to melt.
What happens if your mixture gets too hot? You can destroy some of the healthy nutrients if you are using raw cacao powder or other raw ingredients. But… it also makes it very hard to get clean layers with super hot layers.
If you are cooking these on the stove-top. I recommend using low heat. Once the pan is heated, turn off the heat and stir the coconut oil until it's melted. That's all the heat you need
Substitutions For Vanilla Latte Fat Bomb
I use liquid stevia in this recipe simply because it works very well for fat bombs cause you don't have to worry about graininess of texture that many of the granulated sugar substitutes result in.
You can substitute other alternative sweeteners in this recipe. However, I haven't come up with a great way to dissolve them without heating the coconut oil to a higher temperature.
If you do this, just mix the sugar substitute and coconut oil together and heat it. Then allow the mixture to cool to 90 degrees or so before mixing in the remaining ingredients and filling your molds.
What ratio should you use to substitute? It really depends on how sweet you want these to be. I have been happy using 1 Tablespoon of Bocha Sweet in these (my favorite granulated sugar substitute). My second choice is Monk Fruit sweetener.
I avoid Splenda and Aspartame because of unwanted side effects. Xylitol is another popular alternative sweetener that is ok if you can tolerate it. Some people have GI issues with it.

Vanilla Latte Fat Bomb (0 Net Carb)
For the base layer:
- Preheat your crockpot on high while you get your ingredients together.
- Turn your crockpot to low and add the base layer ingredients.
- After 20 minutes, remove the molds with the base layer from the freezer.
- Top each “fat bomb” with about a half teaspoon of the topping. Use all the remaining “topping”
- Place the molds back in the freezer for about 10 minutes or until the topping sets up.
- Remove the ‘fat bombs' from the mold and store in the fridge or freezer in a tightly sealed container. These stay good for weeks stored in the fridge and even longer in the freezer!
If you prefer not to use Espresso, then you can omit it and replace it with a teaspoon of cacao.
If you prefer a more “milk” chocolate, then use more stevia.
If you prefer a darker chocolate, then use more Stevia for Darker Chocolate flavor You may need to adjust how full you fill your molds if the cup sizes are smaller. Aim to fill them about ¾ of the way full to leave room for the chocolate espresso topping.
