For those of you unfamiliar with the ketogenic diet, you can watch the “mini-course”, but basically, it’s a diet in which you eat the bulk of your calories in fat, HOPEFULLY…HEALTHY FATS, such as avocado, coconut oil, nuts, seeds, salmon, grass-fed butter/ghee, etc. The macronutrient ratio for a typical keto dieter is 70% fat, 25% protein and 5% carbs – theoretically, SHOULD be in the form of vegetables. A HEALTHY, clean eating keto diet would look like this:


Many people struggle to reach that “70%” mark, for fat intake. One way people boost their fat intake is through “fat bombs”, which are very small, typically bite size snacks which are very high in fat. They give dieters a boost of energy and help them reach their fat intake for the day.

Many fat bombs aren’t so healthy, SO…This week, I’ve scoured youtube and the internet for healthy versions of this keto classic snack.

Today’s recipe is: Salmon Benny Breakfast Bombs

How can you go wrong with these delightful fat bombs made from salmon, eggs and hollandaise sauce


Breakfast Bombs

  • 2 large eggs – hard boiled and peeled
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, sliced
  • ½ tablespoon butter, salted
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Hollandaise Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons butter, salted
  • 1 large egg yolk, separated from the white
  • ¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed*
  • ½ tablespoon water, add more if too thick
  • Salt to taste


  1. Finely dice smoked salmon. Fry half the salmon until crisp in a pre-heated pan with 2 teaspoons of butter. Set aside
  2. Mash the 2 eggs well with a fork. Set aside
  3. Make the hollandaise sauce -simmer 2 cups of water on the stove. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave, then set aside to cool. It should be melted, but not hot. In a heat-safe bowl, whisk the egg yolk, lemon juice, dijon mustard and a pinch of salt together until you see air bubbles. Place the bowl over the simmering water on the stove, making sure water doesn’t touch the bowl-(creating a double boiler). Continuously whisk the mixture until it starts to thicken. Once thickened, SLOWLY pour the butter into the mixture. Continue to whisk until it thickens to desired consistency.
  4. Mix together raw smoked salmon, chives, and mashed egg. Add enough hollandaise sauce to bring the mixture to a firm consistency, and isn’t too wet.
  5. Split combined mixture into 4 balls.
  6. Roll in the crispy salmon to coat.
  7. ENJOY!

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines, as well as cured my insomnia. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
