Christmas Keto Rum Balls…..Oh my goodness! I really didn’t ever make Rum Balls before to be honest, and I had to research what was in them.

Funnily enough when I checked them out, I was totally turned off, but then I made these…. These are most certainly not just something you want to make around Christmas time. These are great any time of year!

As a secret guilty (or not so guilty) pleasure I like to eat mine from the freezer. They last waaay longer and can be savoured with my usual black coffee.

So how did I create these Keto Rum Balls?


I simply added my bowl atop a set of digital scales and started adding raw ingredients that I thought would taste good together, then mixed them, tasted and adjusted. The raw mixture was amazing and then I thought how to take it to the next level?

Chocolate and freeze dried raspberries.

Seriously you could reinvent this recipe a million times over.  Add different alcohol..whooops!  I used Brandy instead of rum.  Use some hemp seeds or lupin flakes to add that extra crunch and health benefits.

Please don’t feel you have to have freeze dried raspberry flakes or anything special to recreate these.  Have them unadorned or simple use coconut or nuts, they will still be more than amazing.
