Can I Eat Peanut Butter Cookies on the Keto Diet?

Yes, you can eat peanut butter cookies on the keto diet if you use a low carb peanut butter when making the cookies. Most peanut butter brands are high in net carbs so you must choose one with a low net carb count like Crazy Richard’s Creamy Peanut Butter or Kroger Natural Creamy Peanut Butter.

Both Crazy Richard’s Creamy Peanut Butter and Kroger’s Natural Creamy Peanut Butter* are gluten free and contain only 2 grams of net carbs per serving.

(* Kroger’s website displays an incorrect carb and fiber count on the packaging. The actual Kroger Natural Peanut Butter product label displays the correct carb and fiber counts for a total net carb count of 2g.)

How to Make Keto Peanut Butter Cookies {Quick Overview}

This is just a quick overview of some of the steps involved in making the low carb peanut butter cookies. For the recipe in detail, including exact measurements used at each step, scroll to the recipe card at the end of the post.

In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients. (Photo 1)

Add remaining ingredients (Photo 2) and mix using an electric or stand mixer until the batter is well combined (Photo 3).

Onto a well-greased cookie sheet (I use butter), form and place cookie balls using a heaping tablespoon of batter each. Space each cookie approximately 2” apart. (Photo 4)

TIP: You may need to use two cookie sheets depending on the size of your sheets.

Use the back of a fork to flatten each cookie slightly and create a criss-cross pattern on top. (Photo 5)

Bake per instructions on the recipe card and you will end up with these delicious (and adorable, in my opinion) cookies!
