Keto Peanut Butter Cookies

Your childhood favorite peanut butter cookie has a chewy keto version! My second favorite cookie in the world is a Peanut Butter Cookie. First is chocolate chip, of course. I designed this keto cookie recipe for all of the peanut butter fans out there. The best part ….these keto peanut butter cookies are CHEWY!!!!!

How To Make Chewy Keto Cookies

The key ingredient to making keto cookies chewy is to add gelatin. It sounds strange but trust me, it works! And don’t worry, your cookies won’t taste like a cow’s hoof like some grass fed gelatins smell.My favorite gelatin is from Great Lakes. Make sure you pick up the orange container and not the green one. The green container is collagen.

Is Peanut Butter Keto Friendly?

Although peanut butter has more carbohydrates compared to other more keto friendly nut butters, you can still consume it in small amounts. Typically I don’t recommend eating peanuts on the keto diet because it’s very easy to over eat your carb allotment. A cup of dry roasted peanuts has about 20 net carbs in it!If you are really watching your carb count, then substitute the peanuts and peanut butter for a more keto friendly nut, like macadamia nuts or pili nuts.

Substitute Any Nut Butter

You can trade out either the peanuts or peanut butter in this recipe for any nut or nut butter of your choice. Try the following:
  • Almonds
  • Hazelnuts
  • Brazil nuts
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Pili Nuts
  • Pecans
  • Almond Butter
  • Macadamia nut butter
  • Pili nut butter
  • Coconut butter

  1. I love these cookies and they are a big hit with my friends and family too! I’ve made them a few times ever since I first saw this on YouTube! I love your recipes and this one is no exception! Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes that has helped me lose over 85 lbs so far…!

  2. I haven’t tried the recipe yet because I don’t understand the one carb count was 3/4 cup of peanuts in it. Is that for one cookie is supposed to be one carb? And how many cookies are you considering that recipe to make so I know about how large they are? Although I would like to add that I find the majority of recipes of yours that I have tried to be top notch!
