We are in the 4th week of staying at home and this is the time when my cooking and baking are being transformed into a completely different dimension.

I start making dishes from our Low Carb Pantry I have and save all of the fresh produce for our Breakfast.

It is so different to bake or cook when you know that you just can not go to the shop in 10 minutes when you realize something is missing. 

Pantry Recipes

But on the other side, this makes me come up with recipes, they would have probably never end on our Blog for its complete simplicity. 

Some of them are Raw Seed Keto Crackers Bread, which is actually my most favorite Bread to use right now. 

Our Ginger Turmeric Energy Shot is being prepared on a weekly basis and Easy Nutella Keto Cookies can not be missed on the table right now as well.

From the time we started living Low Carb Lifestyle and additionally launching my Low Carb – No Carb Blog, I always buy main Keto Ingredients in Bulks.

And that is Nut Flours, Nut Milks, Various Seeds, Peanut Butter, Nutella, Shirataki Noodles and more. 

So when the time of closure came, our Pantry was Pretty full. But for some reason, I still try to save on the ingredients much more as I would during normal times.

And those super quick and easy Keto Peanut Butter Cookies are a part of it.

Because they do not require so many ingredients, they are just perfect to whip up whenever you have a sweet tooth. All you need is some Peanut Butter, one egg and a sweetener. That is it. 

Oh, and additionally a bit of Vanilla Extract, which we now have plenty of, which will just add to the flavor a different dimension.

Sugar Sweetener

For the last few months, I have experimented with a new new Brand of sweeteners called Besti

This awesome Brand belongs to a dear friend of mine Maya and all of the sweeteners are out of this world.

For this recipe, I have used Powdered Monk Fruit / Erythritol Blend. 

I have started using this blend for my daughter’s morning Cacao Drink mix and she said that it finally tastes like a real deal. 

I have added Besti Blend as well into our Spicy Keto Brownies and my husband had no idea they were low carb. 

BESTI Brand has been so kind enough to offer to all of our readers a 10% discount on all of the products using a special code: LOWCARB-NOCARB

Peanut Butter

For this recipe, as well as for all of my other recipes such as our Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake or Keto Peanut Butter Mousse recipe I only use Natural Unsweetened Creamy Peanut Butter.

That is the only one I buy. 

I personally believe, any natural Peanut Butter is sweet on its own anyway, and I do not think it still needs to be sweetened unless it is used for a Keto Dessert Recipe like this one as an example. 

Crunchy or Creamy Peanut Butter?

Also, I always buy only the creamy version, since most of the crunchy ones, contains small peanuts, which has been covered with real sugar for that crunchy sweet taste you are used to. 

But the best scenario is to make your own Peanut butter at home if you have a really good and strong blender. That would be the best option since you would know exactly what is inside.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO MAKE KETO PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

Second Step: Combine all

Prepare a large Mixing Bowl.

Add all of the ingredients in and prepare for mixing.

You can also add Vanilla Extract, which will add a bit of additional taste to the cookies. But if you do not have one in hand, this is not a problem. This ingredient is fully optional and does not need to be in.

Third Step: Mix

Using either a Hand Mixer or Silicone Spatula, combine all of the ingredients and mix to a smooth consistency.

Fourth Step: Scoop, size, decorate

Either using a mini Ice Cream scoop or 2 teaspoons, scoop all of the cookies onto a baking tray covered either with Parchment Paper or silicone baking sheet. Make sure you keep space in between as you will have to still press them down.

Using a fork, you can slowly press on each cookie giving them the famous criss-cross design. You can also use your hand . Make sure your hands are a bit moist as the mixture might stick on.

Once all of the cookies are pressed down, you can decorate them in the middle with one piece of a peanut.

Fifth Step: Bake and let Cool

Bake in the oven for approximately 15 Minutes.

Once taken out of the oven, do not touch them. They are very soft and need to fully cool to harden.

Enjoy.

Tips and Tricks:

Baking time – The baking time I have chosen will give you soft, yet still dense cookies. If you would like to have them a bit more dry, extend the baking time by about 5 – 8 minutes

Let cool fully – Once baked, do not touch the Keto Peanut Butter Cookies straight. They need time to harden. Let them fully cool before you start moving them onto a plate. 

Sweetened Peanut Butter – If you have by any chance only a sweetened Peanut Butter, I would suggest reducing the sugar sweetener by about half. 

Powdered Sweetener – Just in case you only have Crystalized Sugar Sweetener, Magic Bullet of a Coffee Grinder will transform it into a powdered version in no time. 

Size of the Cookies – We do love mini Cookies and I have managed a total of 17 smaller pieces, to which ones, nutrition is calculated as well. 

If you would choose to make bigger size cookies, I would suggest adding a few minutes to the baking time for them to bake fully from inside.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What type of sweetener to use for Keto Peanut Butter Cookies?

For most of my Keto Cookies and desserts, in general, I use Powdered Sweetener. It is our preferred choice and any Crystallized Sweeteners we buy, will get immediately powdered in our Magic Bullet for later.

What Brand and type you use is not really extremely important in this recipe. Make sure it is a natural sweetener and not one made artificially.

I always prefer blends before plain erythritol, as pure erythritol gives you a stronger cooling effect and mixing it together with other ingredients neutralizes the taste. 

Is Peanut Butter Keto?

If you purchase pure natural Peanut Butter without any addition, it is fully Keto.
Also if you make your own, mixing only pure peanuts, it is fully Keto.

But once doing shopping, you have to be vigilant and read all of the labels.

Some of the peanut butters contain sugar to sweeten them even more.

Also, lots of the crunchy Peanut Butters contain small pieces of peanuts, which are roasted in pure sugar to give them its famous crunchiness.

So the most important is to always read the labels and ingredients of the Peanut Butter you plan to purchase.Sugar Free Cookies on a baking rack cooling down

How to store Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies?

Those Quick and easy Keto Peanut Butter Cookies are perfect left on a plate on your kitchen table for 2-3 days without any troubles. 
If you prefer, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator, where they should last for much longer. Even for up to a week.
Longer, I would place them into the freezer.

Can you freeze Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies?

You can freeze those Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies without a problem.
Just take them out of the freezer the night before and let them thaw naturally.
