When you whip up this mix, it is perfect for piping onto muffins or cupcakes. The fats satisfy and the raw egg nourishes and it’s almost impossible to eat too much. I keep a jar of this mix in the fridge to satisfy those “I must have something sweet” moments. I scoop out a spoonful and let the buttery mix melt in my mouth, the peppermint version is like sucking on a mint humbug, the striped old-fashioned mint sweeties, crispy hard coating, soft chewy insides, absolutely irresistible. After two spoons of FAT BOMB Frosting my body tells me that’s enough… whereas if i had opened a bag of sweets, it is guaranteed that I would have eaten the lot.
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup raw pastured butter
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 spoons raw honey (to taste)
- a few drops of flavoring (vanilla extract, orange essential oil or peppermint oil)
- Whisk ingredients into a frosting. You may need to melt the fats a little.
- This pipes onto muffins and looks just like real icing.

How many ‘paleo’ people would have had access to coconut oil or butter or flavouring. I don’t like the term paleo used incorrectly. Unless you are foraging or killing your own wild beasts you can not pretend it is paleo. Say it is high fat or low carb or what ever but don’t pretend any paleo person of any place would ever have eaten this.

Greetings dear Eva!
Where in this post is there a reference to ‘paleo’? ………
Maureen Diaz says
It doesn’t actually, does it? Perhaps Eva is confusing WAPF with Paleo. None-the-less, I did reply to her concerns for the use of coconut oil, cream, and flavorings.
Maureen Diaz says
Many would agree with your thoughts Eva, as I myself have also shared. Of course we understand that the word, “Paleo”, is in fact, a way of describing a diet devoid of processed and “modern” foods. There are many different views of what this may or may not entail, and most of us here would disagree with hard-core “Paleo” principles. However, regarding coconut oil, it is the most-used and abundant source of fat world-wide, and has been throughout history. The “cream” of the coconut has also been used likely for just as long. “Flavorings” on the other hand, probably not as much. But they have been made and employed in kitchens around the world for thousands of years, just not off the grocery shelf.

I wish that people would be kinder and more gracious when someone offers them suggestions in the public domain.
Thanks for this recipe, I plan to try it.
One question: I was able to make “whipped cream” by whisking cold 30% fat coconut cream. So which temperature for all ingredients would whip best?
Hello! forgive the late response, i just have all ingredients at room temperature, if it is a cold day, I gently warm the fats so they are workable, once all whisked together, I pipe onto muffins, or chill in a jar in the fridge, until someone needs a ‘hit’. You would have to ask a real chef ! i’m just a ‘suck it and see’ kind of a cook. Love and light xx Emma
Hi everyone and thanks for all the excellent Information. I have candida, is it okay to have fat bombs?
Many thanks and kind regards
Maureen Diaz says
Yes Rita, fat bombs would be good for you, but with a change in sweetener. Some local raw honey can be beneficial, but it would be preferable to use a low-caloric sweetener (and one that does not feed the beasties!) such as recommended in our shopping guide. This can include stevia, real monk fruit extract, or even a little real yacon syrup (rich in inulin which provides a sweet taste, but without absorbable sugar, or feeding the bad guys). Enjoy!
So excited, can’t wait to try this recipe. I have been using cream cheese and butter but lately the cream cheese has been bothering me.
oh wow! This yummy looking frosting with healthy fat ingredients. I’m too excited to try this on ginger muffins. Thank your for an awesome recipe!

Hi! I’m thinking of using this for my sons fist birthday “cake” and want to avoid honey. Could I use maple syrup? Want some safe for him to eat. Thanks!
Recipe Moderator says
I have not made this recipe, and don’t know if the author will see your post – this was published before I took on the role as moderator and am not sure how to alert her to new comments so many years later, however at 1 year of age, we think it is safe to introduce honey. We recommend raw, unfiltered local honey. If you are concerned, try maple syrup!
