Keto peanut butter cookies recipe

These flourless peanut butter cookies are just like your grandma’s peanut butter cookies, but so much healthier! They are perfect for cookie swaps, Christmas cookie bake-offs or a healthy dessert any day of the week.

I’ve been making batch after batch of them, especially with Christmas just a few weeks away. What I love about these cookies are just how easy they are to make- No chilling, one bowl and 12 minutes. I also LOVE how long they keep- I can make them a week in advance and they still have the fresh, soft and chewy taste the entire time. 

For a keto cookie recipe, this is easily the easiest and quickest to make. Although the keto chocolate chip cookies, keto brownie cookies, and double chocolate chip keto cookies are just as easy…

3 ingredients, 12 minutes, NO excuses. Soft, chewy and slightly dense on the outside….no words. 

How to make keto peanut butter cookies

No mixing bowls, multiple dishes or blenders needed- Just one bowl and a sturdy wooden spoon!

The ingredients

  • Peanut butter. Smooth, drippy peanut butter is best. Aim for the all-natural kind, with no added sugar. 
  • Granulated sweetener of choice. Either monk fruit in the raw or swerve will work. These are keto-approved and have the same consistency and taste of white sugar. 
  • Egg OR ground chia seeds. Either one large whole egg or to keep it vegan and eggless, ground chia seeds. This does NOT need to be made into a ‘chia egg’. 

The directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a large baking tray or Silpat cookie sheet and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all your ingredients and mix until a thick batter remains.
  3. Using a cookie scoop, form 12 small balls of dough and place on the lined pan, 2-3 inches apart. Press each ball of cookie dough into a circular shape, before pressing down with a fork on each one.
  4. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until golden on the edges. Remove cookies from the oven and allow to cool completely. Dip in chocolate, if desired.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper or prepare a Silpat cookie sheet.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all your ingredients and mix very well. If using ground chia seeds, if the batter is too thin, add an extra tablespoon.
  • Form 12 balls of cookie dough and place on the lined pan. Press each cookie in a circular shape and press down with two forks. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until golden on the edges.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely. If desired, drizzle in chocolate and peanuts.

Notes

* For a vegan/eggless option, substitute this for ground chia seeds. Start with 3 tablespoons and add an extra tablespoon only if your batter is too thin. 
  • To store. Store peanut butter cookies in a sealed container at room temperature. They will keep fresh for up to 2 weeks. Alternatively, you can refrigerate them, and those will keep for up to 1 month.
  • To freeze. Place cookies in parchment paper and place them in a ziplock bag or shallow container. Frozen cookies will keep fresh for up to 6 months.
