A barfi is nothing, but dense milk based sweet confectionery from India, a type of sweet. Coconut barfi is a traditional Indian sweet made in almost all parts of India. It is very easy to make, and just needs few ingredients. And these are high in fats and low in carbs, thus called as coconut barfi fat bombs.
Being born an Indian, I have always enjoyed and relished our rich dishes full of flavour and taste. When I started Ketogenic diet, one thing I knew was to never compromise the taste with this diet. I made sure that my food is not boring. I make many Indian versions of Ketogenic dishes, and here to present you a very famous sweet of India – Coconut Barfi/ Coconut bar. It is high in fat and low in carbs, and are ideal as fat bombs .

Which form of coconut to use ?
To make these coconut barfi fat bombs, I used Dessicated coconut flakes for the barfi, you can use coconut meat too, but the carb content may vary. I buy dessicated coconut flakes from D-mart and sometimes online on Amazon. This one I found is low on carbs, linking them here 🙂
- Dessicated coconut flakes – This one was low in carbs, unsweetened and also were fresh. Did not have that overhwhelming flavour.
- MYSTIQUE HILLS – ORGANIC DESICCATED COCONUT FLAKES (1 KG) PREMIUM QUALITY – This one does not have nutrition information written but is cheaper than other brands and is unsweetened. So, safe to use it.
