easy 3 ingredient keto peanut butter cookies

Sometimes I want a little bit of sweetness. (Don’t we all?)

I just made these incredibly simple and delicious low-carb Peanut Butter Cookies! These gluten-free, sugar-free bites of heaven require only three simple ingredients. Just like cookies, they also puff up a little bit, have great flavor, and melt in your mouth. My kids even love them!

For more keto desserts, be sure to bookmark this link.

Consider picking a natural peanut butter with no sugar (or low sugar). You’ll also need a sugar substitute such as erythritol.

Note: While the nutritional label below shows 8 carbohydrates per cookie serving, the true net carbohydrate per cookie is closer to 2 net carbs once you deduct for sugar alcohols.

  1. Colorado Amy

    Who has the best price on the erythritol natural sweetener?

      • Colorado Amy

        Thank you!

    • Jeanette Sexton

      Are the nutritional values per one cookie? There is no definition of how many cookies are in one serving.

      • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

        Yes! A serving size is one cookie.

      • Bob

        Recipe makes 15 1” balls. Says amount of servings 15. So 1 cookie per serving

    • Rita Stafford

      Swerve is only $7.99 at Safeway (Folsom, CA – may be cheaper elsewhere)

  2. Jen

    I made these yesterday and they are yummy! Very easy to make too! Thanks you guys for the recipe!

    • Lina D

      Great and thanks Jen!

    • Velma

      Did you use granulated erythritol or powdered?

  3. Nely

    Either this is not ketogenic or the nutritional facts label has a couple errors. 1g of fat, 8g of carbs and 0.5g of protein. By definition that would not be a ketogenic ration (1:1 of fats over protein + carbs).

    • Breanna Moeller

      You would subtract the sugar alcohols and the fiber which make them 1 net carb per cookie. I hope that helps

  4. Diane

    You may want to adjust the link you provided for the erythritol sweetener, the link takes you to Stevia which is a different product. ! I’m looking forward to making these cookies. Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      You’re welcome! Thanks for the heads up!

  5. Lynne Shaffer

    Did I miss the ingredient measurements?

    • Holly (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      They are located in the recipe right above the directions. Hope that helps!

  6. Dawn Beckford

    13 Calories???

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Thanks for asking! We have just updated! It is 133 calories per serving.

  7. Bobbie

    I’m assuming a serving is 1 cookie. For these ingredients, 8 grams of carbs sounds high. What am I missing?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      The cookie recipe includes all of the carbs from the sweetener with none of the sugar alcohols removed (the software doesn’t deduct for the sugar alcohols, so we typically manually deduct those), hence the higher carb amounts. If you subtract the sugar alcohols from the recipe, you end up with 4 total carbs (3 net after subtracting the added fiber from peanut butter). I hope this helps!

  8. Melanie

    Is it 1/2 cup of Stevia or Erytritol ? The link confuses me. I’ll give this recipe a try. Thank you.

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      You’re welcome! It is Erythritol. Thanks for the heads up on that link! We will get that updated!

  9. Debby

    Any peanut butter?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Debby! You can grab a natural peanut butter with no sugar (or low sugar). Hope that helps!

    • Denita Bannister

      No… sugar free ..walmart carries crazy richards

  10. Mp

    Can I use another sweetener such as xylitol, stevia, honey, sugar, molasses, or maple syrup?

    • Emilytwinmom

      I have been making these for years with regular whitw sugar, or half white half brown. I cup pb, 1 cup sugar, 1 egg 🙂

    • Anna

      Be sure to avoid xylitol if there are pets in your home this is very dangerous for pets. Thanks
      Otherwise excellent recipe! Thanks for posting!

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Yes! So true thanks for the reminder 👍

  11. Janet

    I used half the stevia recommended and they are still sweet and delicious. I typically make a double batch and refrigerate dough until I cook them as I need them. Underscore need. ?

  12. Lisa

    Great for a little sweet tooth, albeit a touch dry. My peanuts-and-salt-only peanut butter was a little runny and I thought the dough might turn out too loose, but it ended up being easy to roll into little 1″ cookies.

  13. Jen

    The recipe says to roll out 15 cookies… then it says the recipe yields 24… What am I missing?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Whoops it makes 15 cookies! Fixed, and thanks!

  14. Suzi Armstrong

    Great cookies! I did use Stevia instead of the one listed in ingredients and I used crunchy all natural pb. Not sure how bad this screwed up the Keto numbers tho. My one question is, the cookies were crumbly. Is it because I substituted ingredients? Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That could be! Maybe change up the cooking time a bit or try the smooth peanut butter. Hoping that helps!

  15. Rita Stafford

    Has anyone ever tried to make Almond Butter Cookies with this recipe? I am allergic to Peanuts.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That may work! Let us know how it turns out if you decide to give it a try!

  16. Mona

    Can I use Monk fruit sweetener instead?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I’m sure you can use your fav powdered sweetener to taste.

  17. Candy

    Made these and they taste yummy but were super crumbly. Any suggestions on combatting that texture?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hmm..I searched online and it suggested to add either a couple tablespoons more fat or an egg white. Hope that helps! Maybe using an oily nut butter may help? Thanks Candy!

  18. Carol

    I made these and they were very crumbly. Why?

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Carol! It could have been caused by the peanut butter you used. Your oven may run a little hot too and they could be over-baking. Maybe try using a different peanut butter next time and adjusting the cooking time. Hope that helps!

  19. Gail

    I’m having a hard time staying on the keto diet without over eating. What might help? I know I’d never be able to eat one cookie.

  20. Tessa Kendrick

    Can you use confectioners swerve as well?

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Tessa! Yes you can use powdered swerve as well. Enjoy!

      • Ashley C

        If you use the powdered swerve instead, do you use the same amount as you noted in the ingredients with granulated?

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          Yes, you use the same amount!

  21. Joy

    Love these cookies! I decided to switch it up a bit the 2nd time I made them and used coconut butter (different than coconut oil) in place of the peanut butter. Placed on almond on top before baking. After they cooled, I topped with melted Lily’s stevia sweetened dark chocolate. Tasted like an Almond Joy!

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Joy! Yum! What a great idea. Thank’s for sharing.

  22. kimbates1978@gmail.c

    I made these for the first time today. They were so easy to make. I was able to cook dinner at the same time as making them. My 4yr old daughter gives them 2 thumbs up. They are delicious!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh we live to hear this! Thanks for sharing ❤️

  23. Deborah R Ford

    I made these today and I don’t know what happened….mine lacked that after taste of sweetness and peanut butter. They were crumbly, even after cooling.
    Did I over mix or over bake? I used Smucker’s All Natural P’Butter and Swerve and fresh, room temp egg.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      It may have been caused by the peanut butter you used. Your oven may run a little hot too and they could be over-baking. Maybe try using a different peanut butter next time and adjusting the cooking time. Hope that helps!

  24. Jenn

    Has anyone tried using chocolate chips in this recipe? I’m a pb and chocolate fanatic and think it would be delicious! Love how easy this recipe is. Looking forward to giving it a try 😀

  25. Lisa

    Can this be made in a microwave?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Lisa! You could give that a try. With a quick search, it looks like some have tried that using a microwave safe mug or bowl. Hope this is helpful!
