Keto Cookies Finally!
I don’t really eat cookies, unless it’s a real cookie made from flour and sugar. And only chocolate chip ones made by my wife Deepti. Keto cookies have never really interested me but since I’ve received a dozen (or maybe 100) requests for a recipe I thought I’d start here. The Keto Peanut Butter cookie is probably the simplest cookie you’ll ever make. It’s literally 3 ingredients, peanut butter, sweetener and egg. However I wanted to put my own spin on it and I’ve done exactly that. So check out the recipe and enjoy!
Any nut will do!
While this is a peanut butter cookie I do believe this recipe will work with any nut butter. In theory it makes perfect sense. However if you do try making it using almond butter or hazelnut butter let me know how it turns out. You could also throw in some sugar free chocolate chips for a chocolate chip cookie.
When it comes to sweeteners I use Sukrin Gold in this recipe. You can use Stevia or Erythritol instead as well, it’s completely up to you. What I would recommend is tasting the batter since all Keto sweeteners vary in levels of sweetness.
The base of this recipe is the peanut butter, sweetener and egg as I mentioned earlier. Everything else is option and a flavour enhancer. I was thinking of ginger cookies when I made this which is why I used the cinnamon and grated ginger. The husk is largely to add some texture to it and the vanilla to ensure there is no eggy taste.

Now I’ve made 8 cookies using this recipe but being really honest they were way too big. I would strongly recommend making 16 smaller cookies out of this instead of 8 bigger ones. The macros will be exactly half of what’s mentioned here. I think they would possibly cook better as well. Anyway give it a go and let me know.
