I can’t tell you how many times I’ve searched for the “best keto peanut butter cookies” on Pinterest, only to be disappointed by the available results. After much trial and error, I’ve landed on a recipe that will be my new “go-to” for peanut butter cookies! These cookies are chewy and delicious and will absolutely give you the sweet peanut butter fix you’re craving!
Arrowroot flour isn’t a usual keto ingredient (adding 8 grams of carbs per tablespoon) but it’s a little secret that adds a crispiness to the browned edges of the cookies that you simply can’t get with almond flour or coconut flour. Sukrin Gold is my new favorite brown sugar alternative – it has the flavour and texture of real brown sugar. Do yourself a favour and order some so you can make these cookies ASAP!
The Best Keto Peanut Butter Cookies
These cookies are chewy and delicious and will absolutely give you the peanut butter fix you're craving!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper (cookies will spread more with paper).
Add all ingredients (except chocolate) to a large mixing bowl and cream together with a handheld electric mixer.
Break up the Lindt chocolate into chunks with your hands and fold into the peanut butter mixture.
Use a medium cookie dough scoop (approx. 2 Tbsp) to form even balls and place on cookie sheets. Slightly flatten the dough balls with a fork before baking.
Bake for 8 minutes until they are barely set (don't overbake!) and leave on the cookie sheet to cool.
Enjoy the peanut buttery deliciousness!
