Tips for making the best keto peanut butter cookies:
- What peanut butter should I use? You’ll want to pick a natural peanut butter with the least amount of added sugar to keep the carb count low. I used Crazy Richard’s 100% peanut butter as it contains no added sugar and it’s affordable too! Yippee!
- In moderation, a little natural peanut butter should be an okay snack, however, some people like to avoid it all together. Natural almond butter can be utilized here instead if you’d prefer!
- Let’s talk about keto sweeteners! The key to keeping these peanut butter cookies low carb is to use a keto-friendly sweetener. We love using monk fruit such as Lakanto in keto peanut butter cookies as the texture and taste are both fantastic tasting (use code HIP2KETO for 15% off). I have also used granular Swerve to make them with success. In our testing kitchen, we tried using Swerve brown sugar, and they did not turn out as sweet as desired for one team member.
- Chocolate would be a yummy addition to these cookies! You could press in a little chunk of no-sugar-added chocolate after baking to the tops and I bet that would be over the top delicious.
These keto peanut butter cookies are so GOOD!
They are easy to make and a satisfying treat if you need something sweet. This easy idea is a winner and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Here’s what my teammate Jen said about these keto peanut butter cookies:
“These taste like a traditional peanut butter cookie to me, but better. They are super simple to make and I love that it takes only 3 simple ingredients. I personally reduce the monk fruit amount to 1/3 cup as I don’t like sweeter cookies. These are so good that my non-keto family has them gone the first day!”
Bake these keto chocolate chip cookies next and thank me later!
Love these cookies, Thank you
You are welcome, Linda!
I’ve made these twice already and love them!!!
Oh yay! Thanks for sharing!
I must be doing something wrong. They’re too liquidy to actually roll out. Ideas?
Your dough should be more on the dry side. I’m wondering if it is the peanut butter you used?
I used Jif. Do have some natural peanut butter. Would that be drier? Only used a half cup peanut butter because it was so liquidy.
Hey there! You will want to choose a natural peanut butter. You can stir it up a bit if needed before using it. Hoping that might help!
I add sugar free dark chocolate chips and my men love them!
That sounds yummy!
Can these be frozen and thaw well?
Yes! That will work! You can freeze the dough or the cookies! 🙌😋
Looks very simple and delicious, thank you!
You’re SO very welcome! Enjoy! 🥰
