Keto Pistachio Truffles on Parchment

Keto Pistachio Truffles or Fat Bombs

  • Author: Mellissa Sevigny
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 10 truffles 1x


These Keto Pistachio Truffles boast a creamy rich center of lightly sweetened mascarpone cheese flavored with vanilla.  The perfect low carb fat bomb or sweet treat!


  • 8 ounces (1 cup) mascarpone cheese, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners style erythritol sweetener
  • 1/4 cup chopped pistachios


  1. In a small bowl, combine the mascarpone, vanilla, and sweetener.
  2. Mix gently but thoroughly with a fork or spatula, until well blended and smooth.
  3. Roll by hand into 10 balls, about 1 inch in diameter.  (if too soft to roll, chill 10 minutes and try again.)
  4. Place the pistachios on a small plate and roll the truffles in them until completely coated.
  5. Chill 30 minutes before serving.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.


To make a savory version, omit the sweetener and vanilla.  Stir in 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic and 1 tablespoon of chopped herbs.  Parley, chives or basil would all be a good choice.  You can also use a nut other than pistachio if it’s what you have on hand!
