Keto Peanut Butter Cookies
Peanut butter cookies don’t have a reputation as a health food…
…but leave it to my husband (the chef in the family) to find a way to make them good for you!
A couple weeks ago we whipped up these No Bake Keto Cookies for the first time. They were easy and delicious — and we were totally hooked!
So this week we baked Keto Peanut Butter Cookies — another winner!
My husband’s Keto Peanut Butter Cookies are sugar free, gluten free, flourless, dairy free, and high protein. Whether or not you’re on a ketogenic diet, these low carb peanut butter cookies are the perfect guilt-free treat!

How to Make Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies
A 1-minute video demo is available at the bottom of the post with printable recipe.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine peanut butter, eggs, and sugar in a non-slip mixing bowl. Stir together until a smooth dough forms.
Roll into balls (about 1 Tablespoon each) and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone baking mat.
TIP: We love these non-stick silicone baking mats because they’re washable and nothing sticks to them – we use them for almost all of our baking projects!
Using a fork, press cookies down so they are about 1/2″ thick, making a criss-cross pattern.
TIP: Wet fork before pressing so that the fork doesn’t stick to the dough. We keep a small dish of water at our work area so it’s ready between each press.
Bake for 13 minutes at 350°F for a chewy peanut butter cookie. If you prefer a shortbread-like texture, bake 1-2 minutes longer.
