Easy Keto Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe – delicious, soft, fluffy low-carb ket peanut butter cookies that work in most clean eating plans! Super simple and crazy delicious – the perfect easy peanut butter cookie treat that wont break your keto diet!
Since starting a keto diet a couple of months ago, my husband has been lighter and felt so much better – but he’s definitely missing sweets and snacks – and cookies!
We looked around for cookie recipes we liked (let’s be honest, in a house with two kids, we need a recipe that is delicious not only for keto dieters, but those eating carbs too) – they were often too chalky, had a weird aftertaste, or too bitter – but these Keto Peanut Butter Cookies are the knockout favorites for us.
These Keto cookies are easy, take just one bowl to mix, and don’t require a ton of expensive, weird ingredients that you will only use in one recipe.
They are also incredibly quick – so you can get that craving for cookies out of the way fast!
These cookies are so cant-get-enough-delicious, you’ll flip for them!

How to Make Keto Peanut Butter Cookies
Since peanut butter can have a lot of extra sugar (and too much moisture), we’re using dehydrated peanut butter powder to work as the “flour” for our cookies.
I prefer PB2 brand peanut butter powder – but any brand will work.
Using peanut butter powder not only ups the protein and fat content of baked goods, but it tastes great, works like a lightweight flour, and has a delicious slightly sweet and very nutty flavor that is perfect for baking cookies.
When baking with peanut butter flour, be sure to always include an acid (lemon juice or a splash of apple cider vinegar) if you’re also using coconut or almond flour to help take away any bitter flavor. We’re not using any of those in this recipe, so it’s not necessary, but if you buy a bottle of PB2 and want to try other easy keto bakes recipes using it, just keep that note handy because too much fat from peanut butter powder and coconut or almond flour gives a strong ammonia-like flavor, but is easily fixed with some acid!
Keto Cookies Without Xantham Gum
Xantham gum is a staple in keto and paleo baking for delicious cookies that don’t use flour – but it can give a weird and often bitter aftertaste that I am not a huge fan of.
Xantham gum is also pretty expensive, especially since its not used in a ton of recipes – so it was important to me to come up with a delicious and easy keto cookie recipe without xantham gum.
