No-Bake Peanut Fat Bombs

An easy 3-ingredient recipe for no-bake keto peanut butter protein balls! Soft, chewy, and low in carbs, these protein balls are the perfect snack ready in 5 minutes! Peanut-free, nut-free, and paleo option! Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free.

When it comes to snacking, peanut butter always somehow makes an appearance. If you checked out my weekly grocery haul, peanut butter would always make its way in there…even with 4 unopened jars at home!

While enjoying peanut butter straight from the jar is my usual go-to, sometimes we need a portable and satisfying snack.

For me, I need my snacks to be low in carbs, but high in healthy fats and protein. I’ve also found that ketogenic friendly snacks tend to keep my energy levels higher. This is where the magical ingredient that peanut butter is taking center stage!

Is Peanut Butter a low-carb food?

All-natural peanut butter is indeed a low-carb food. It is high in healthy fats, has a moderate amount of protein, and has a relatively high amount of fiber.

A two-tablespoon serving sees it providing a mere 3.5 grams of net carbs!

Not only is peanut butter low carb, but it is also suitable for a ketogenic diet. Although compared to other nuts the carb count is a little higher, on a large scale, it is negligible.


Ingredients - (Serving: 40 balls)


  1. Line a large tray or plate with parchment paper and set it aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all your ingredients and mix well. If the batter is too thick, add some liquid (milk or water) until a thick batter remains.

  3. Using your hands, form the dough into small balls and place it on the lined plate/tray. Refrigerate the peanut butter no-bake balls for 30 minutes, or until firm.


  • Any smooth nut or seed butter can be substituted. For a paleo option, use cashew butter or almond butter.

  • I used a monk fruit-sweetened maple syrup. Non-keto sweeteners include pure maple syrup, honey, and agave nectar.

  • Peanut Balls should be kept refrigerated, and are also freezer friendly.
