Grass-fed Cinnamon Butter Fat Bombs

Easy fat bombs recipe | Cinnamon fat bombs | Grass-fed butter fat bombs | Healthy fat bombs

Are you getting enough grass-fed butter in your diet? Grass-fed butter is a nutritional powerhouse, and unless you have a dairy allergy, I think you should be including it in your diet everyday.

(Experienced real foodies know what I’m talking about, but if you’re new to real food you should check out this post on why butter is good for you.)

Not all of my meals lend themselves to being topped with butter, so I’ve developed a few candy-like recipes that make it easy to add some butter to the end of a meal or snack.

One of my favorites is these cinnamon butter fat bombs. I’m not a huge fan of the term “fat bomb,” so you can also call them cinnamon butter bites if you prefer. 🙂

Flavorful, slightly sweet, and with a whipped taste vaguely reminiscent of frosting, these cinnamon butter bites are a delicious way to eat your healthy fats! Just pop one or two at the end of your meal, or even between meals if you feel like you need a little pick me up.

They’re kid-friendly, too! Healthy fats like grass-fed butter are SO important for kids, but I personally struggled with getting much butter into my daughter when she was younger. She totally went for these butter bites, though!

Where to Find Grass-fed Butter

While you can use any butter for this recipe, you’ll get better nutrition as well as better flavor if you opt for grass-fed butter. Grass-fed butter comes from cows that are exclusively (or close to exclusively) fed grass–which is the ideal diet for a cow–and thus contains many more vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients than butter that comes from grain-fed cows.

Depending on where you live, you may have several different varieties of grass-fed butter available to you. Personally I exclusively buy Kerrygold butter because I can get it at my local Costco for a very affordable price.

Grass-fed butter at Costco

If you’re not a Costco member, you can also find grass-fed butter at health food stores like Sprouts, Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods. Local grass-fed dairies also often sell grass-fed butter, although that option is likely to be more expensive.

If you can afford it, raw grass-fed butter is the absolute BEST butter you can buy. Personally I don’t have that kind of leeway in my budget, but if you do, definitely go for it!

Notes on the Recipe

I use salted butter in this recipe because my most affordable grass-fed butter option is buying salted Kerrygold butter at Costco. You can certainly substitute unsalted butter, just be sure to add some salt to taste.

Several people have asked me whether you can make this recipe in a blender instead of a food processor. While I haven’t done this myself, I’m pretty sure it would work. The only issue will be that the butter mixture is pretty thick, so you’ll have to work a lot to scrape it all out of your blender. I own a high-powered blender as well as a food processor, but I always prefer my food processor for recipes like this one because it’s much easier to scrape out. (Plus my food processor can go in the dishwasher! Not true for my blender.)

This recipe was inspired by the cinnamon kisses in the GAPS cookbook Internal Bliss.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Allow butter to soften on your counter until it is slightly squishy.
  2. Add butter, cinnamon, honey/stevia, and vanilla extract to your food processor. Process for a couple of minutes to mix ingredients and achieve slightly whipped taste. Stop food processor as necessary to scrape down the bowl and reincorporate ingredients.
  3. Spoon butter mixture into silicone molds, Alternatively, you can line a cutting board or other flat surface with parchment paper and then spoon dollops of butter mixture onto the parchment paper. (This is not as pretty but it works just as well, and is actually my preferred method if I'm not taking a photo!)
  4. Freeze for an hour or two, then remove from parchment paper or molds and store in a container in your freezer. Enjoy!

  1. This recipe sounds sooo good. Can I use a blender to mix the butter and other ingredients or is it necessary to use the food processor?

    • Meghan says:

      Carolyn, I’ve never tried a blender so I’m not sure. I’m guessing that it would work, although you might have some trouble scraping it all out. I love my blender for liquidy things like smoothies but for thicker items I prefer the food processor because I personally find it easier to scrape. If you give it a try in the blender, come back and let us know how it turned out!

  2. Nicole says:

    I could eat this by the pound! It looks really tasty.

  3. Kirstin says:

    I will have to give these a try. When I am feeling low on my fat quotient for the day I often find myself sticking my finger in the butter dish. These seem much tastier!

    My kiddos cannot have butter but can have ghee. Is there a suggested substitution method for these using ghee?

    Thanks!

    • Cheryl says:

      Ghee is just clarified butter, I would imagine that you just prepare it the same way. No?

      • Hi Cheryl,

        Yes, you can prepare it the same way, although you may need to adjust the other ingredients for flavor. In my experience ghee has a much stronger flavor than butter, so you may want to add more cinnamon and/or vanilla.

    I know that you suggest a food processor, but if I mix the ingredients by hand will it still turn out well?
