File these delightful keto fat bombs under breakfast recipes worth every decadent bite. Whip up these breakfast bacon fat bombs and get your keto on today!
I may, in fact, be obsessed with these Breakfast Bacon Fat Bombs.
They sound weird, and seem weird, and when I first heard of fat bombs I was like whaaaaaaaaaaat is this?!
But I was mostly thinking about eating butter straight. Yeah.
But clearly we aren’t talking about biting into a stick of butter, oh no, we are talking about something altogether amazing.
Because duh, we are still hanging out in Bacon Month, the land of awesome bacon awesomeness, and what better way to talk about these little nuggets of goodness than with bacon?!
These delish balls of delight are an inspired work, mostly because a friend of mine, Stephanie, is a sort of upbeat Keto goddess. She’s amazing, you would love her.
Anyway, that is how I first found out about the thing known as a “fat bomb.”
What IS A Fat Bomb, Anyway?!
In general, a fat bomb is a tasty blob of, you guessed it, fat!
- Aim for 85% fat content
- The best bases are butter, coconut oil, or cream cheese
- Add low-carb goodies for flavor and texture
- Mold, chill or freeze, and enjoy for breakfast, snack, or post-workout
And while chocolate fat bombs are the most popular, I definitely prefer to reach for something savory, especially in the morning.
In my research of the illustrious little fat nugget, I happened on this recipe and fell in love. But I wanted something more than just regular bacon and eggs in ball form. So I got a little creative, and incorporated a few extra ingredients for a little Mexican flare!
I threw in some avocado, a serrano pepper, and cilantro to round out these fat bombs and voila! Deliciousness achieved! So if you follow a keto or paleo diet, or just enjoy a delicious breakfast snack that is packed full of the good fats, then this recipe is the one for you.

Now, let’s make some breakfast bacon fat bombs, yes?!
- 1 Hardboiled Egg
- ¼ Avocado
- 4 Tbsp Unsalted or Clarified Butter
- 1 Tbsp Mayonnaise
- 1 Serrano Pepper seeded and diced
- 1 Tbsp Cilantro chopped
- Kosher Salt to taste
- Cracked Pepper to taste
- Juice of ¼ Lime
- 2 Tbsp Bacon Grease
- 6 Cooked Bacon Slices
- In a large bowl, combine the hardboiled egg, avocado, butter, mayonnaise, serrano pepper, and cilantro. Mash into a smooth paste with a fork or potato smasher. Season with salt and pepper, then add the lime juice and stir.
- Prepare bacon in your favorite fashion until crispy, reserving 2 tablespoons of bacon grease. Add the bacon grease to the fat bomb mixture and stir gently. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes, or until the mixture has cooled and can form solid balls. Crumble the bacon into small bits in a small bowl.
- Using a spoon, scoop out 6 even-sized amounts of the fat bomb mixture and form into balls. Add the balls to the bacon bits and roll around until completely covered. Serve immediately.

Can you freeze these for later or do they not keep?
Oh my! Who doesn’t love bacon fat??? We used to pour it over shredded lettuce when I was a kid!
Esther Bergling says
These sound yummy. I will be trying. Avocado doesn’t freeze well. Either do hard-boiled egg or mayo; I say no to freezing
Anything on freezing yet?
I wouldn’t recommend freezing, as another commenter pointed out, avocado, eggs, and mayo all fare rather poorly in the freezer! You can enjoy them over a course of a few days though, depending mostly on the age of the avocado you used. A little lemon juice will help keep them from turning brown as well.
I put the recipe into a nutrition calculator (except for the bacon grease which it didn’t have info for) and it came up with the following:
1.9 grams of carbs
8.9 grams of protein
of course this will vary depending what brands/types of ingredients were used but its a good rough estimate.
thank you for this recipe! I can’t wait to try it over the weekend!
Yes, nutritional info please! And did we get an answer to freezing or refrigerating? I can’t eat 6 fat bombs at once. Thanks.
Do uou have the nutritional info on these? Thanks!!
Bacon fat bombs and my ketogenic journey are so very thankful right now. Perfect for snacking or for fast breakfast instead of the keto fat coffee. Yum
I was wondering as well….did anyone have success freezing them or find a way to savour them over time?
Have you tried to freeze these?
You say to serve immediately… Are these something that can be prepped and eaten through the week? They seem like a perfect “grab and go” option for busy mornings!
Hi Luci! I would say to eat them within two or three days to avoid the avocado going bad, adding a little lemon juice can help keep them from turning brown as well.

Love your site and appreciate your creativity. These really are the BOMB!
I’m not sure if you control the ads on your site or not but I’m seeing ads for Nectar Mattress. Just so you know, I’ve purchased this mattress and they claim to have an amazing return policy. However, once they receive their payment they are unresponsive to return requests. Incredibly unprofessional. I’m not sure if this is a company you want to associate your site with.
Looking forward to your next post!
Ha ha ha, I see what you did there! 😉
As for the ads, they are user-specific, so they show different things for everyone based on their search habits and what they view, so if you are seeing ads for that mattress, it’s likely because you’ve spent time on their site, or talking about it on FB and such. I hope you’re able to find a resolution with them, because there are few things worse than terrible customer service!
recipe sounds delicious…but also commenting about the ads. even though i ‘m running an ad blocker…i’m getting an ad for a camera. was only talking about cameras FACE TO FACE with my daughter the other day. NOT in the market for one. gawd but this stuff is creepy and getting worse. ugh. i have very little linked and NO FACEBOOK.
