Muhammara Fat Bomb

Sometimes I follow a keto diet, and when I do, this flavor profile makes me happier than most of the bacon-laced recipes on the internet. This recipe has red peppers in it, which aren't super low carb, so don't trust me on whether or not this is truly a keto recipe.


  • 1/2c cream cheese (I love Violife vegan cream cheese, even though I'm an omnivore)
  • 1/4c muhammara (A good recipe from Ottolenghi, or one from me)
  • 3T extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 olives, sliced or chopped
  • 1/4c walnuts, chopped
  • 1T za'atar
  • 1t Aleppo Pepper


  1. Mix the cream cheese, muhammara, olive oil and olives in a bowl.
  2. Roll into about 8 equal balls.
  3. Roll in walnuts.
  4. Dust with za'atar and Aleppo pepper
