Ron Swanson’s Buttered Bacon Fat Bomb | Cr*p I Eat At My Desk

Looking for a quick snack? We know two things: Fat bombs are the rage in the low carb keto world, and bacon rocks the low carb keto community. Yay, fat is our low carb friend! We finally embrace that it takes fat to lose fat. Most of those fat bombs are sweet and feature ingredients such as chocolate and coconut oil. But Fluffy Chix Cook believe it’s hard to go wrong with the nutrition found in butter made from grass fed cows. And bacon. Mostly bacon. And if Ron Swanson ate fat bombs, we’re fairly certain he would make these his (after laughing at that cute little touch of Leslie; the low carb craisin) favorite bacon-licious snack.








Oh noooooooooo’s! Another day of too-busy-to-eat and it’s 2:30pm. The Feed-Me-Seymour-Elevator finally made it all the way to the top and I have signals saying, “Feeeeeeeed me, Seymour!!”

And yes, we all have those days when we’re too busy to eat or need something to bridge the gap between meals. Right? It would be so simple to buzz through a drive through and order a McRib or slam a Big Mac. But hey, I like living! As we told you before, we don’t use fat bombs to enhance a meal or assuage a sweet tooth, we use them to replace or cut back on a meal through the magic of fat. I’m talking about assuaging real, physical hunger. And offer more hours of productivity without having to knuckle down and cook.

And that’s just what these little Ron Swanson’s Buttered Bacon Bombs do for us. Why? Cuz these are too dang easy to make, too good for their own good,  and go down so very easy. I hear you right now. Some of you are judging. So judgy judgy. But if you’ve never tried buttered bacon my friend, well then you’ve never met Ron Swanson. Savory fat bombs drive the bus to Pawnee, baby. I’ll be back to let you know how long this little Susie-Snack tides me over. In the mean time I have chores to do and a table to whittle.


Here’s how we control fat bomb portions: Make only as many as you plan to allow for that “Susie Snack” meal. I chose to only make 3 today, since you get 3 out of a piece of bacon. So that’s how many I made. It took all of 1 minute these Ron Swanson Buttered Bacon Bombs.





There are so many ways to go with Buttered Bacon Bombs:

  • Purist – just straight butter, sea salt, and bacon
  • Blue – 1/2 butter, 1/2 blue cheese, a dash of Worcestershire, pecans, and bacon
  • Spiced – use your favorite savory or sweet spice blends with the pecans, and bacon
  • Sweet- use your favorite sugar free maple syrup to sweeten the butter, pecans, cinnamon and bacon
  • Cream Cheese – 1/2 cream cheese, 1/2 butter, jalapeno, bacon
  • Brie – 1/2 brie, 1/2 butter, bacon

Make sure to toast the pecans prior to making the fat bombs. Toasting the pecans really elevates the fat bomb. I keep some kind of toasted or Crispy Nuts in the fridge at all times, for just this sort of emergency ration! When we’re in a hurry, we simply throw them into a 350° oven for 8-10 minutes. Watch so they don’t burn. But when we are thinking straight, we make Crispy Nuts (recipe coming soon) which involves soaking the nuts in sea salt overnight, then dehydrating 6-8 hours at 105° (the nut setting on the dehydrator). Also, the Keto Craisin post will be ready this weekend!

Throw the toasted pecans together, scurry back to the dim recesses of your poorly lit desk and devour! No questions asked. No apologies. Just wham, bam, thank-ee mam!


(By the way, the Sriracha Butter Bacon Fat Bomb did not make the cut. Sure it was easy. Sure it looked good in theory, but meh. I loved the Ron Swanson so much, one of mine didn’t live to see the streaming neon flash for these awesome, super exciting, desk photos!!)
