The Best Soft and Chewy Keto Peanut Butter Cookies
Last year I did a low carb keto version of the famous 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe. And while that recipe was CRAZY popular, I knew I could come up with something even better.
Spoiler alert, I did!
Today's keto peanut butter cookie recipe tastes just like a "normal" peanut butter cookie. The outside is chewy, the inside is soft, the sweetness is perfect, and the peanut butter flavor is mighty!
How To Make Keto Peanut Butter Cookies
These Keto Peanut Butter Cookies are SO EASY TO MAKE.
Literally, all the ingredients go into just one bowl and get mixed.
A ball of cookie dough will take shape from all the mixing, and then you're all set to start forming your keto cookies.
By the way, I use a tablespoon sized cookie scoop like this to form my cookies. If you use the same sized scoop, you should end up with about 14 keto cookies.
Also, you'll want to add your cookie dough to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, so the cookies don't stick to the sheet.
Once, you've added them to the baking sheet, it's time to give the low carb peanut butter cookies their classic cross-marked pattern. So, what you'll want to do is smush the tops with a fork, and then do the same thing in the opposite direction.
Now, our keto peanut butter cookies are ready for the oven. And one of the best things about this low carb cookie recipe is how quick these cookies bake. 7 Minutes at 350 Degrees is all they need. Crazy, right?
However, when they're done baking, you'll want to let them cool down in the tray itself. This is because they are VERY soft when they come out of the oven, and these peanut butter cookies will set as they cool.
Having said that, once these peanut butter keto cookies set and firm up, they're simply incredible!
No Sugar Low Carb Keto Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
Peanut butter cookie recipes are typically loaded with sugar. And using sugar is obviously not an option when you're making keto cookies. But, I've got a couple of recommendations to replace the sugar!
First off, let's talk about the sweetener I used in today's No Sugar Peanut Butter Cookie, and basically all of my other recipes too.
But, the MAIN REASON I like to use Swerve is that it has 0 CALORIES & 0 NET CARBS! Also, I personally like the taste of it compared to other sweeteners too.
Having said that, Monk Fruit Sweetener can be another option for today's Keto Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe.
But, I wouldn't recommend using stevia. The reason is that stevia has a different sweetness profile compared to Monk Fruit/Swerve. If you use stevia the taste will be WAY OFF, and your keto cookies won't turn out good at all.
Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies For Keto
Today's Peanut Butter Cookie recipe is completely flourless and gluten-free!
Many cookie recipes rely on white or wheat flour as the base ingredient. However, those flours are loaded with carbs and aren't keto friendly at all.
Luckily, almond flour works as a FANTASTIC replacement for those flours. And almond flour is one of the best - if not the best - flours for keto!
So, there are a few different brands of almond flour out there. I like to use This Blanched Almond Flour by Kirkland's. It's cheaper than most other almond flours out there, and it ONLY has 2 NET CARBS per serving! And that's actually the lowest amount of net carbs I've ever seen for almond flour.

In the video, it says to use ½ a cup (56g) of almond flour. This is incorrect, and you should use ¼ cup (28g) of it for the recipe. Sorry about the error.
The Macros DO NOT include the "carbs" from Swerve. Swerve has 0 calories, so it should be tracked as 0 carbs. The FDA makes food companies list "sugar alcohols" as carbs, but that doesn't mean they should be tracked as such. That's why it's ALWAYS important to look at the calories of sweeteners and determine the true carb count FROM THE CALORIES!
