Cashew Fat Bombs

Cashew Fat Bombs

These Cashew Fat Bombs 👏🏻💕 If you embrace the #keto or #paleodietthan you probably know what fat bombs are. They’re basically energy balls but without the oats, grains, and dried fruit. Instead, they have high-fat nutrient dense, low-carb, low protein ingredients like butter, ghee, coconut oil, nuts, nut butters, and seeds. And these ☝🏼 lil' bites are so good. I added in detox synergy elixir from By Erika Elizabeth for a touch of taste and feel good adaptogens. Totally optional by.
