Keto Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Fat Bombs
Keto Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Fat Bombs are primarily made with cream cheese and cinnamon – the snickerdoodle duo. It is undeniable that this flavor combination is so enticing, keto or not!
The star of this dessert, the cinnamon, is a keto-friendly spice. Not only is it flavorful, but it also has a lot of health benefits. You may want to look for the Ceylon cinnamon variety rather than the more common Cassia type.
The spice has a lot of antioxidants, cancer-fighting properties, anti-inflammatory properties, and many more. But an interesting fact is that it can even lower the amount of sugar in your blood.
So, if you are trying to avoid carbs and follow this diet, then, this recipe benefits you greatly. Eating food with cinnamon can help improve your condition by lessening the chances of sudden spikes of sugar level.
But, of course, you must seek your physician’s approval about all these. And did I mention that this recipe is so easy to follow? There is no reason not to try this fat bomb recipe!

How to store and freeze them?
- Refrigerate: Most fat bombs will last for about 2 weeks in the fridge. Make sure to put them in an airtight container.
- Freezer: These frozen treats are best stored for about 3 months. Just make sure that they are packed well with parchment paper in between to prevent them from sticking.
- You may want to use silicone molds as they also freeze well.
- Add more flavors by adding in strawberries or any berry, nut butter, or unsweetened cocoa powder.
- Another version is to roll these into balls and then, roll into a powder mixture of cinnamon powder, a little bit of salt, and sugar substitute.
