I usually bake mine at 350 F for 12-15 minutes.

This Keto Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe makes cookies that are soft on the inside and slightly chewy on the outside.

They are very easy to whip up at the times when you are craving a keto snack or dessert, but don’t feel like eating dark chocolate.

They are one of these quick and simple low-carb desserts that you can make any time in under 30 minutes. There is nothing worse than having to wait to chill a dessert, bake for a long time or letting it set. These are nothing like this. Foolproof and simple.

There are so many variations of the recipe for these Keto cookies with peanut butter, but I like to keep things plain and with minimal ingredients.

Protein powder in keto cookies?

I know that some people add protein powder to their peanut butter cookies.

I’ve tried some recipes, but the cookies were too dry. That’s why I think that the combination of just peanut butter and powdered low-carb sweetener is just enough to achieve cookies that don’t fall apart, but still stay moist on the inside.

The list of ingredients is surprising! No butter! No cream cheese or nut flour. No protein powder!

  • Peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • Powdered erythritol
  • Egg

What sweetener to use for this low-carb, Keto peanut butter cookies recipe?

  • For BEST results, use confectioners (powdered) sugar-free, low-carb, keto sweetener.
  • I use Swerve Powdered sweetener.
  • Monk fruit also works, but keep in mind that the cookies will be sweeter.
  • Truvia for baking could be used.
  • If you decide to stick to granulated sweetener, keep in mind that you still might be able to feel the granules in the texture of the baked cookies. I don’t personally like that.

I try to avoid the granulated sweeteners in cookie recipes like this Keto Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe, because I just love the cookie texture when using powdered.

Do you need to use eggs in this Keto peanut butter cookie recipe?

Yes, because eggs help to hold the dough together.

Are there Keto peanut butter cookies flourless?

Yes! There is no flour, no gluten-free flour, not even nut (almond), flour used in there.

This Recipe for Keto Peanut Butter Cookies  requires baking. Because fo the egg, you can not consume there raw.

I usually bake mine for 12-15 minutes, until the tops are set and start to turn golden.

The size of these cookies is about 1.5 tbsp of dough and I use this cookie scoop.

This Keto peanut butter cookie recipe makes 9 cookies. Double or triple it if you’d like to make more.

This is the best and my most-favorite recipe for Keto peanut butter cookies.
