I just love these FAT bombs. The nut butter flavor, I like the crunchy kind for the texture. These freeze up so nice and last a long time in a Ziploc. These sweet treats are only as sweet as you want them. A little protein and a bit of FAT and these babies are a great go to you when need a little something extra. Enjoy.
