What are peanut butter cookies?

If you love natural peanut butter you will love this cookie recipe. It is an easy sweet snack recipe that you can quickly toss together when you are looking for a low-carb sugar-free treat.

To make the dough, mix together some peanut butter, almond flour, egg, sweetener, vanilla, and baking powder in a bowl. Then form into cookies and bake. You can enjoy these cookies in under 20 minutes!

Is peanut butter keto?

Yes, natural peanut butter is ok to eat on Keto. Peanut butter is low carb and can be low in sugar as well. BUT you need to watch how much you eat. All nut butters are so delicious, no-one stops at just 1 or 2 tablespoons. The carbs in peanut butter can soon add up.

How do I choose the best peanut butter?

You will want to be a label-reading ninja when purchasing peanut butter because not all peanut butter is created equal. Look for peanut butter that is all-natural with no sugar added. You want peanut butter with just peanuts, oil, and salt.

What other nut butter can I use?

You can use almond butter but depending on the brand you by, it may have more or less added oil and salt so you may need to add more or less sweetener and almond flour.

You can use tahini which is a seed butter, but it will be very oily so a lot more almond flour will be required.

I would not use cashew butter. Cashews are a high carb nut.

What ingredients are in low carb peanut butter cookies?

You only need 6 simple ingredients. they can all be found in your local grocery store. Simple, easy and affordable.

  • Peanut butter
  • Almond flour
  • Egg
  • Sweetener
  • Vanilla
  • Baking powder

Can I omit the egg from the cookies?

These cookies really do need the egg to bind them together. when you no longer use regular flour that contains gluten, you need the protein from the egg to make it a true cookie.

Many readers are egg-free (or vegan) and want to use flaxseed, chia or psyllium “egg”. I haven’t tried this yet, so if you do, please let me know in the comments.

What type of flour should I use make low carb peanut butter cookies?

I prefer to use almond flour to make peanut butter cookies because the almonds increase the flavor of the peanut butter. While you can have peanut butter on Keto, you still want to limit the amount you use. Moderation is key.

The almond flour with the help of a little baking powder also helps you obtain that wonderful crumbly and soft texture you find in really great peanut butter cookies.
