Our Coffee Fat Bombs are the perfect sugar-free treats that you are just going to love! Basically these are a tiramisu cheesecake fat bomb. Made with a short shot of espresso and mascarpone they have so much flavour.
As per usual this low-carb dessert recipe was created because I wanted a little bite size keto treat to enjoy.
I think easy keto freezer desserts are just the best. Pop them into a ziplock bag and hide in the freezer for when you need a sugar-free treat.
While you really don’t need to add extra fats to your keto diet these are a sometimes treat that will satisfy a sweet tooth. Plus they are basically keto energy bites that will give you some energy when needed.
COFFEE FAT BOMB INGREDIENTS
I have tried to keep this fat bomb recipe to minimal ingredients. Read on for more variations and extras you can add to the recipe. In keeping it simple they are a quick and easy low carb dessert or snack that can be whipped up in no time.
- 250 g cream cheese
- 200 g mascarpone, ricotta is a good substitute if you cannot find mascarpone
- 50 g butter, I use salted
- 25 g ristretto coffee or 1 teaspoon coffee extract. You can also dissolve a tablespoon (or to personal taste) instant coffee in a tablespoon of boiling water and it in stead.
- 40 g powdered sweetener, I use Sukrin Melis as it is so convenient and doesn’t have any aftertaste
- Pinch salt flakes
- 50 g sugar free dark chocolate
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
Another additional topping for the coffee fat bombs is to mix all the below together and pour on top of the fat bombs.
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1-2 tsp unsweetened cacao
1 tsp sweetener, if preferred
Pinch salt flakes
HOW TO MAKE KETO FAT BOMBS
Here are a couple of videos to help show you how to press into the silicone moulds and simply coat in a thin shell of chocolate.
HOW TO STORE KETO FAT BOMBS
As I briefly mentioned above the freezer is the way to go with fat bomb recipes like this one. Because the coffee fat bombs have mostly creamy ingredients they will of course be soft if stored in the fridge. So just keep them airtight in the freezer.
WHAT MOULDS TO USE WHEN MAKING KETO FAT BOMBS
I just use silicone moulds for keto fat bombs recipes. The small muffin silicone moulds, or various shapes of small sizes. I find silicone is just so easy to use over metal as you can invert them and pop them out easily and there is just so many great styles.
If you don’t have silicone you can use mini muffin trays, I like a 4cm or smaller size. Alternative just spoon or pipe onto a lined tray. Cover with cling film and freeze then store in a ziplock bag.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE FLAVOUR?
Keto fat bombs don’t just come in different sizes but also plenty of different flavours.
Our coffee fat bombs, are also bulletproof fat bombs, or tiramisu fat bombs. Here are a few of my favourite easy changes to this particular recipe for you to try.
Chocolate Fat Bombs
Omit coffee and add either 2 tsp unsweetened cacao, or Avalanche Drinking Chocolate or 20g melted dark chocolate to the mix.
Lemon Mascarpone Fat Bombs
Omit coffee and add 20g lemon juice and zest of half a lemon or teaspoons of lemon extract.
Keto Mint Fat Bombs
Omit coffee and lemon and add 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract. Add a touch of green food colouring if desired.

Coffee Fat Bombs
- Place all ingredients into a large bowl. Using a hand mixer, mix until all ingredients are combined to a smooth consistency.
- Spoon 1 heaping teaspoon of batter into a silicone muffin mould. Smooth over the top with a teaspoon and place into the freezer for 20-30 minutes. See Note 5.
- To make optional topping; simply melt dark chocolate with coconut oil. Remove fat bombs from the moulds and place onto a small lined baking tray and drizzle over the chocolate. Place back into freezer or fridge for 10 minutes. Store in the freezer in an airtight container.
- Place all the fat bomb ingredients into the mixer bowl. Mix 1 min/speed 5. Follow from Step 2 above.
2. Sweetener can be adjusted to taste. I use powdered Sukrin Icing Sweetener. Any sweetener can be used but mill it to be in powdered form so you do not end up with grainy fat bombs.
3. I use salted butter.
4. The Coffee Fat Bombs are best kept stored in a ziplock bag in the freezer.
5. After smoothing over the fat bomb batter you could simply dust with a little unsweetened cacao before placing into the freezer as an alternate and very simple topping.

I didn’t have mascarpone, so I used the following recipe — and even “dumbed down,” the batter tastes fantastic. I look forward to feasting on the frozen bombs tomorrow morning. Will try the mascarpone version later on.
8 0z cream cheese
6 T butter
2.5 T Truvia sweetener
1 pinch kosher salt
25 ml hot water with 1 T instant Folgers coffee
Amazing. So delicious. I’m a terrible cook but they turned out brilliant.
Thank you for all you do for us.
I love these! The amounts in the recipe were perfect for me; not too sweet which is my preference. The coffee flavour was subtle which also suited me (not a coffee drinker). Thanks Megan 😃
I am addicted to these now, Megan. Another fabulous dessert option.
I made the lemon version. A lovely little treat in this hot weather. I didn’t have moulds so used a tray lined with Glad bake. Also doubled the lemon juice to 40mls from a bottle, and a sprinkle of pink rock salt in top too. Delicious!!
Thank you Megan.
I made the coffee ones last night and OMG!! Thank you. I wouldn’t change a thing. Yummy!! 😊
I’ve bought more ingredients to make these again. Totally luscious. I went with the coffee version ( hard to beat imho ) and used a double shot ristretto. The flavour was superb. I’m going to mould in Easter egg shapes and coat in a drizzle of chocolate.
Made the mint version, delicious 😋 👌 I’ll post a picture to your Facebook page
I just found you and it’s already love at first sight! I will be trying a number of your recipes, this one included. Welcome to my keto life.
I made the tiramisu coffee fat bombs and they are just like having a small serve of Tiramisu. I love them. I made them last night and had to patiently wait till today to try them once they had frozen solid. I made them in a mini muffin pan and they came out easily. I sprinkled them with Avalanche sugar free drinking chocolate. Will definitely make again. Very hard to stop at one!! 😋😋
The coffee fat bombs were very easy to make and taste delicious. Another winner recipe Megan.
I really enjoyed this little bomb, I loved the tiramisu flavour but I would add stronger coffee next time to make it more intense (I used instant coffee) plus more sweetener, but that’s just my personal taste. Also next time I’ll coat with chocolate.
Yummy Coffee Fat Bombs. Made them yesterday and finished today. I varied the mascarpone from 200g to 250g as that was the Mascarpone container size. I topped them with 1/4 cup Coconut Oil, 2 tsps cocoa powder 1/2 tsp sweetener, pinch of salt. I spooned this atop of each fat bomb. Very rich and scrumptious!
I loved them but would add more coffee next time, I only had instant. Once I drizzled the chocolate on top I sprinkled with a little salt.
The only thing that I didn’t like was waiting for them to soften once out of freezer (not a patient person 😉)
Hi Megan ,
I made the chocolate ones using your sugar free drinking chocolate powder from Healthy Family Keto Cookbook.. they taste like a chocolate milo FATBOMB.
Absolutely delicious and love how easy it is to make.
Will definitely try the other versions you have created as well.
Thank you for another brilliant recipe 😍
These are very easy to make and a very tasty little frozen fat bomb. I dusted mine with raw cocoa powder and they taste just like tiramisu .
I can’t wait to make the variations in the recipe. Keto mint fat bombs are next but I love having these in the freezer for when the hunger hits .
These really are the bomb Megan!!!
You’ve created yet another winner of a recipe
Easy to make with my Thermi. Once mixed, I put it into a clip seal sandwich bag, cut the corner off and piped them into silicone ice cube moulds.
Popped them in the freezer, and then half an hour later, they popped out of the moulds easily. They taste divine! I will be making these again.
All I can say is OMG YUM. I made these last night. I did up a full mixture but divided it in half, did 1/2 coffee tiramisu which I made with instant coffee in a bit of water and the other I did with lemon juice and rind and they are both amazing, Im going to decorate the tiramisu ones with chocolate and the lemon ones with tiny bits of candied lemon rind. Ill definitely be making them again and with different options to try them all. Megan your recipes are the bomb 😍
