Looking for an easy, no-cook fat bomb that tastes good on your keto diet? Look no further. This super simple, 6-ingredient mousse takes minutes to make, but most importantly, it tastes delicious. Gluten-free, low carb, keto, vegetarian peanut butter maple mousse is a cool little bowl of deliciousness on a hot day.
There are some days I just crave something sweet. Lately, I've been on a fat bomb kick, and I'm trying to come with different delcious versions that are good for summer. It's so hot here, I can't stand the thought of cooking or baking.
Keto fat bombs are a great way to add both fat, and delicious taste to your keto diet. Now keep in mind that you don't have to hit all your fat grams. You only eat fat for satiety.

Tips and tricks to making this Keto Peanut Butter Maple Mousse:
There are really only a few things to remember to make this peanut butter maple mousse easily.
- Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature.
- Use peanut butter with minimal sugar and added carbs
- Start your stand mixer really slow so you don't splatter yourself with cream (yes, of course, I discovered this the hard way!)
- Do not overwhip the mixture as you will have butter from that cream. You want the mix to be fluffy and a light tan as you see in the picture
Other than that, it's simplicity itself and a child could make this peanut butter fat bomb with no work at all. I did let mine chill afterward for 30 minutes and I think that really helps it set, and allows the flavors to meld well together.
If you're planning to save some for another day, be sure to cover the bowl in the refrigerator otherwise the top dries out a bit. Still good enough to eat, but just not very attractive.
Or you could do what I did, which is slathered and hide the top with whipped cream. More fat! More Deliciousness! What would be wrong with that?
