Pumpkin Spice Keto Fat Bomb Recipe
Here's a fun recipe to get us started. It comes from mommafitlyndsey.com and the flavor profile heavily relies on pumpkin spice. The choice is a good one – you end up with a flavor that’s a little bit like a pumpkin spice latte. The cheesecake aspect comes from the use of cream cheese. This helps to create a creamy texture that many people love. Don't just take our word for it. Why not try the recipe out for yourself?
Pumpkin Pie Fat Bombs
As the name suggests, these fat bombs from ketodietapp.com take advantage of the flavors you normally find in pumpkin pie. The shape in the image comes from using a silicone pumpkin mold. You could easily use another type of mold or even just an ice cube tray.
Lauren also mentions a neat little trick with these fat bombs. You can stir one into a hot cup of coffee. Once it melts, you end up with something very similar to a pumpkin spice latte. This gives you another way to enjoy the fat bombs, especially on days when you want something warming.
Pumpkin Pie Bites
Arman from thebigmansworld.com offers these easy-to-create fat bombs. They only use five ingredients, but still have a distinct inner and outer layer. This aspect makes them look fantastic and very professional. The recipe is also more flexible than most.

Healthy Pumpkin Pie Fat Bombs
This recipe comes from the site hungryforinspiration.com and is well worth checking out. Not only do the fat bombs taste fantastic, they're also suitable for paleo, vegan and keto diet. This also means that the fat bombs are dairy free, making them perfect for anyone who is lactose intolerant. Versatility like this is always appealing, especially if you plan to share the fat bombs around.
Another cool thing is the carb content. While fat bombs are always low in carbs, this impressive recipe gets all the way down to 0.6 grams of net carbs per fat bomb. You’re also getting 5.6 grams of fat and 0.8 grams of fiber for the same serving, making these a healthy snack all around.
Pumpkin Spice Fat Bombs
This recipe comes from perfectketo.com and it's an ideal one if you want a complex flavor profile. The main aspect is obvious in the name – pumpkin spice. There is also cream cheese as an ingredient. This creates a cheesecake-like flavor that combines perfectly with the pumpkin spice and pecans.
We’ve already seen one recipe that relies on the combination of pumpkin spice and cream cheese. We’ll see plenty more too. The ingredients are popular because they work so well together. The use of pecans and cinnamon is what sets this recipe apart. It is also one that uses pumpkin puree, rather than only the spice.

Speaking of cheesecake, here is another recipe that uses that style. This time the recipe comes from lowcarbinspirations.com and the fat bombs are shaped like truffles. They also take advantage of crushed pecans. This addition gives the fat bombs an interesting texture.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Fat Bomb
Cookie dough is a common style for fat bombs, but Lauren from laurenrabadi.com offers an unusual flavor for her cookie dough. As the name suggests, the recipe focuses on pumpkin spice. You can use whatever brand of pumpkin spice you prefer or make your own using the recipe that Lauren provides.
One other aspect to mention is the name. This is called a pumpkin spice latte fat bomb, so you might be expecting some coffee in here. That's no the case. Instead, the name is just a reference to the pumpkin spice flavor that those lattes feature.
No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites
These cheesecake bites from beautyandthefoodie.com are also worth checking out. I love how Stacey has a coating over the fat bombs. This style creates an interesting combination of texture and flavor when you bite into the fat bombs. The recipe is also an easy one to follow, as Stacey offers written instructions and also a video.
The base recipe is fairly similar to some of the other ones on this list, as you might expect. Still, there’s one interesting ingredient in the mix that makes these fat bombs a bit different. You’ll have to check out the recipe to find out what that is.
Pumpkin Spice Fat Bombs
These treats might look like scoops of ice cream, but they are actually fat bombs. I particularly like the way the fat bombs aren't as bright orange as many other pumpkin-flavored options. This is partly because the ingredient choice is very different. The ingredients should mean that these fat bombs taste a little different and have their own distinct texture as well.
The recipe can be found at rachaelsgoodeats.com and it makes around 10 balls. You could also make the balls smaller if you wanted. That would increase the number per batch, while also lowering the carbs per fat bomb. Either way, you’re getting a tasty keto snack.
Pumpkin Spice Haystack Cookies
These fat bombs come from ibreatheimhungry.com, which is also one of my favorite low carb sites. The fat bombs are also fun because they look a little different than normal. This is partly because they use shredded coconut. The coconut creates a more unusual texture, earning them the name haystack cookies.
Regardless of what you call them, these little beauties are still fat bombs. They don’t require any baking either. You can put them together quickly and they just require a little chilling time so that they firm up.
Pumpkin Spice Fat Bombs
This recipe, from slickhousewives.com, would be a good choice if you've never made fat bombs before. Bianca provides step-by-step instructions, along with images for each step. These make it easy to follow along with the process and get perfect fat bombs each time.
Another advantage is the recipe. This one relies on common ingredients. You'll already have most of these at home, especially in the colder months. This time, the recipe makes 14 servings. You could increase or decrease the number of servings by changing the size of the fat bombs. Just remember that doing so will change the macros per fat bomb.
Pumpkin Fluff Bombs
The style of these fat bombs is so fantastic. It's nice to see a fat bomb that you can eat with a spoon, rather than something you pick up. This approach also means that the fat bombs have a different texture than normal.
Kasey also mentions that you can include or exclude pecans and chocolate chips, depending on how much you love the flavor of pumpkin on its own. Either way, all the details can be found at kaseytrenum.com.
Easy Pumpkin Spice Fat Bombs
These snacks look a little bit like cupcake batter, but they are fat bombs. As the name suggests, the recipe is easy to prepare. You could even make the fat bombs in a cupcake pan without any liners if you wanted to. You can find the recipe over at staysnatched.com.
Brandi does also mention that the fat bombs can't be left at room temperature, as they will melt. The most practical approach is to freeze the fat bombs until you are ready to eat them.
Pumpkin Pie Fat Bombs
What's not to love about these fat bombs? The ingredients choice creates a more subtle appearance, while the use of silicone molds makes the fat bombs appear elegant too. It is also a fairly simple pumpkin fat bomb recipe. There are just seven ingredients and two steps involved. You can find out more at sareenasfood.com.
Chocolate Covered Pumpkin Fat Bombs
Why just have pumpkin when you can include chocolate as well? These fat bombs add pepitas in to the mix too – providing a satisfying crunch when you eat them. I love how these inclusions make the fat bombs much more interesting than more conventional choices.
This time, the recipe comes from Cristina at thecastawaykitchen.com. She includes all the details for the fat bombs themselves, along with the homemade chocolate ganache. There is also information about various substitutions that you can make so that the fat bombs are suitable for different diet types.

Check the recipe out at grassfedgirl.com for more information and full nutrition details.
Fat Bomb Pumpkin Pie Patties
These pumpkin pie patties might have the shape of a regular fat bomb, but they still look distinctly different. This style makes them look stunning and is great for the taste too. Besides, there is always something cool about layered snacks. Leanne from healthfulpursuit.com provides plenty of images and details about the recipe to make sure you can follow it easily.
Keto-licious Pumpkin Spice Fat Bombs
The use of a pumpkin shaped mold makes these fat bombs from blog.paleohacks.com stand out. Partly dipping them in chocolate has this effect as well. The recipe is a little unusual too, as it is dairy free but still aims to provide a creamy texture (like what you would get with cream cheese fat bombs).
While the shape of the fat bombs make them stand out, this isn't the only approach that you can take. You could use a silicone mold of whatever shape you liked. You might even choose a regular ice cube tray or simply a cupcake tin and liners.
Pumpkin Pie Ketogenic Fat Bombs
These fat bombs remind me a little of a slice that you might see served at a party or some other event. While the color and texture seem conventional, there are some unusual features as well. For one thing, the fat bombs use maple syrup as an ingredient. This is exceptionally unusual for keto, but there are only two teaspoons in the entire recipe. You could swap it for another ingredient if you would prefer.
The recipe also has a high amount of plant based protein. That style isn't anti-keto but it is unusual. You can find out more about this style over at rootandrevel.com. If nothing else, the idea makes these fat bombs a good source of protein.
Pumpkin And Sunflower Fat Bombs
These fat bombs are great because they look different than most. Besides, look at that chocolate topping! That part alone is too amazing to pass up. The recipe itself is simple to make and Maya offers some alternatives to her ingredients choices. You can find this information at mayanahra.com.
It's also worth mentioning that the recipe has no sweetening at all. The approach will be perfect for some people, while others may want to add in a non-sugar sweetener. For that matter, you’ll probably need to tweak the sweetener in most keto recipes. Everyone has their own preferences for sweetness and you may find that some recipes are too sweet for you, while others aren’t sweet enough.
Pumpkin Pie Fat Bombs
As Sarah highlights in her recipe (which can be found at greenandketo.com), these fat bombs rely on ingredients that you probably already have on hand. While the sweetener of choice is powdered Swerve, you could probably use a different sweetener if you wanted to.
For that matter, Sarah mentions various substitutions that you could consider, like using coconut butter as a way to make the fat bombs dairy free. Substitutions like this help you to tailor the fat bombs so that they meet your own needs.
Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Fat Bombs
Despite the large number of fat bombs on our list, this recipe from urbancowgirllife.com still manages to be different. Part of the differences comes from the white chocolate drizzle on top. This doesn't use real white chocolate, but the flavor would be close. There is also an unusual flour included. You'll have to check out the recipe to find out more about that part.
The overall style means that these fat bombs have a different texture and flavor profile to most. Sarah mentions that you end up with a ‘nutty richness’. That sounds fantastic to me.
Low Carb Pumpkin Fat Bombs
Here's another recipe that relies on a pumpkin silicone mold. In this case, the fat bombs are featured at stepawayfromthecarbs.com. As Georgina mentions, you could also add the mixture into a piping bag and make shapes with it. Either way, the fat bombs are then frozen. If you make 24 fat bombs, then you’re looking at around four grams of net carbs per serving, along with 28 grams of fat.
The recipe itself is a simple one, relying on a handful of ingredients. Still, simple isn’t a bad thing. This means that the recipe is easy to create. You don’t need to go shopping for obscure ingredients either.
Keto Friendly Pumpkin Spice Fat Bombs
These fat bombs look very similar to the previous example, right down to the shape. This version comes from moscatomom.com and it is still worth checking out. One difference is that this recipe relies on pumpkin, rather than pumpkin puree. There are some other ingredient differences too. The choice of ingredients should give this version a slightly more complex and interesting flavor profile.
No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake
With this recipe, you really are creating pumpkin cheesecakes, rather than cheesecake-like fat bombs. The ingredients used and the small size of the cheesecakes mean that they do also function like fat bombs. The style means that you have a crust, cheesecake filling and potentially a topping. That's much more interesting than a single texture throughout.
Check out the full recipe at gnom-gnom.com for more details about how to make the cheesecakes and what you can expect from them. Just be aware that the cheesecakes have more carbs than many regular fat bombs (around 3.5 net carbs each). This isn't too surprising, as the cheesecakes are larger and more complex.
Pumpkin Pie Fat Bombs
These fat bombs come from tasteaholics.com and they feature on many pumpkin roundups. It's easy to see why. The fat bombs don't just look stunning, they're also well-designed and are suitable for many different diets.
Another advantage is that the recipe is surprisingly simple. Honestly, you'd expect fat bombs that look this good to have a large ingredients list with complex instructions. That's not the case at all.
