All photos

This five-ingredient snack is made from cream cheese, pepper jack cheese, bacon, jalapeños, and barbecue seasoning that provide high fat and a moderate amount of protein, plus a hefty dose of sodium (which is recommended on the keto diet). Heads up: Many barbecue seasonings have sugar, so check the ingredients or pick up a no-sugar barbecue seasoning (like Simple Girl).

Another keto fat bomb option, these chocolate "oatmeal" bars will satisfy any sweet tooth while providing 10 grams of plant-based protein and 12 grams of omega-3 and omega-6 per 30-gram serving. Rather than using oats, this recipe calls for hemp hearts, which are a "neutral" carb (they offer equal amounts of total carbohydrates and fiber) and approved on a keto plan.

Although they look like peanut butter cups, these bites are made with tahini, cocoa butter, sugar-free chocolate chips, vanilla extract, and erythritol-based sweetener. (This sugar alcohol–based sweetener is keto-approved and a must-have if you're on a keto plan. Look for it in the sugar aisle, or if your market has a "healthy" section check for it there.) And yes, they taste as delicious as they sound.
