The BEST Chewy Keto Cookies
Keto cookies don't get better than today's Low Carb Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe!
I've made a lot of low carb cookie recipes over the past few months - like these, and these - but today's recipe may very well be the best keto cookie recipe I've ever made.
How To Make Keto Cookies (VIDEO)
So what makes these the best keto cookies?
Well, for one, they only take 15 minutes from start-to-finish to make. So if you're looking for an easy keto cookie recipe, this is it!
Secondly, these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are incredibly soft and chewy. And that's certainly not an easy feat to pull off when you're making low carb cookies.
Deliciously Easy Keto Cookies
Also, these cookies are incredibly delicious! Every bite has the perfect amount of sweetness, even though there's actually no sugar added to them.
Honestly, you'd never know these were low carb keto cookies unless somebody told you they were.
How To Make Keto Cookies With The LOWEST Carbs Possible
Cookies are typically loaded with carbs. The two main ingredients to almost all cookie recipes are flour and sugar. Both of which are basically just all carbs.
So, naturally we'll have to avoid using those 2 ingredients in our keto cookies.
Instead, we'll use Almond Flour, and Swerve.
The BEST Almond Flour To Use For Your Keto Cookies
Almond flour works great as a low carb keto friendly flour substitute. There are a few different kinds of almond flour that you can buy, but the Kirkland's Blanched Almond Flour is what I recommend.
I say that because the Kirkland's Almond Flour is MUCH cheaper than other brands, and it has the lowest amount of net carbs per serving. Every 28 grams of that almond flour has just 2 net carbs.
Using Swerve To Sweeten Up Your Cookies
Swerve is a fantastic 0 carb replacement for sugar. I use Swerve to sweeten up all of my recipes, and it worked especially nice in today's Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Keto Cookie Recipe.
With that being said, you can either get the Granulated Swerve, or Confectioners Swerve. I prefer to use the Confectioners in almost all of my recipes because it dissolves so much better than the granulated kind. So, that's the kind I'd recommend getting, and it's also the one I used for the keto cookies today.
The BEST Chocolate Chips For Keto Cookies
Lily's Chocolate Chips are a low carb keto game changer. They are absolutely delicious, have no-sugar-added to them, and every serving has only 2g net carbs.
In my opinion, there is no better option as far as keto chocolate chips go, and you'll save a ton of carbs by using them. Also, you can use them to make these incredible sugar free chocolate chip cookies - each cookie has just 59 calories!
Do NOT Substitute Ingredients
By the way, DO NOT substitute coconut flour for the almond flour. They have different absorption properties and the cookies will not work.
Also, DO NOT substitute stevia or Splenda for the Swerve. However, you can substitute it with Monk Fruit, and you can also substitute it with other kinds of erythritol too.
Anyways, if you use all of the same ingredients I used for my cookies, each one will only have 2g of net carbs! So, I encourage you to use them because I know they'll turn out perfect if you do.

Soooo good!!! Perfection!
My husband and I love these cookies. Made them for the first time. Easy quick and delicious cookies.
Thanks for share.

Hands down the best keto cookie recipe I've ever made. Even my children ate these! Instead of using 3 tablespoons of confectioners serve I used 2 tablespoons of it and 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar serve. These cookies are amazing!
Very nice! My husband and I have been keto for a little while and we've tried some of your recipes. They're great!
These cookies are amazing. Totally impressed! I used monkfruit equal to swerve because I just bought it and wanted to try it. I also love swerve. These cookies had the almond flour texture which I found very similar to eating and oatmeal cookie(which I miss)
These were really really good
Melissa W says
Delish!! Used 1T Swerve brown sugar and 2T Allulose. They were so soft and chewy-just the way I want my cookies to be!! Thanks for the recommendation of Kirkland Almond Flour. Will switch to it when my brand is gone.
I didn't see the first ingredient. Oops. Omitting the peanut butter, it still tastes wonderful!
The Diet Chef says
Glad it still worked out :)
These are delicious. Made tgwm last night. And i dont evwn like peanut butter
I made these tonight and with 4 of us here- they disappeared fast! They are delicious and melt in your mouth. Are the macros based on making 12 cookies or 15? Your yield says 15 but your instructions sa0y to make 12. Either way- worth it!

Just made these cookies delicious thank you so much

Lisa M says
I LOVE peanut butter cookies and these are really good! I make them quite often. This has to be my favorite keto cookie recipe. ❤
Absolutely delicious! Even my sweets-loving nephew enjoyed these. Moist, delicious, just sweet enough. I used butter-flavored coconut oil and Bob's superfine almond flour. They came out amazing! Many thanks!!
So far the best cookie recipe I have tried. I would like to try it with less flour and more peanut butter (there can never be enough of peanut butter…). I also wonder if I could increase the sweetener a bit, although this version has no bitter after taste.
This is the best keto cookie recipe I have found yet. So tasty!
Cookies need to be pressed with a fork, as they do not spread and will come out in a ball. Very good flavor
Made these today! After all the great reviews, I was very optimistic! These far surpassed my expectations!! Outstanding! I see why they get awesome reviews....so had to add mine! Thanks for sharing!
Another awesome recipe! Finally found the perfect keto on chocolate chip cookie! Simple and quick!
On* should be Pb (peanut butter)
