Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips Cookies
Table of contents

Keto Cookie Recipes are low-carb version of all you classic cookie recipes for a perfect keto dessert.

You can easily make keto-friendly alternative to your classic peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip cookies, thumbprint cookies, or even snowball cookies.

All you need is the right keto-friendly ingredients and detailed step-by-step instructions that you can find on each of the more than 30 curated keto cookie recipes below.

The typical ingredients used in keto treats are:

  • Almond FlourAlmond Flour is a low-carb flour that contains about 7 times fewer carbs than regular all-purpose flour.
  • Coconut FlourCoconut Flour is another delicious flour substitute, but its high water absorption makes it more challenging to use, so be sure to follow the recipe precisely!
  • Sugar-Free Sweetener – Replacing sugar requires using an alternative such as erythritol or allulose to keep the same cookie texture.
  • Cocoa Powder – Unsweetened cocoa powder brings all the chocolate taste in keto chocolate cookies.
  • Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips – Store-bought chocolate chips are often loaded with sugar. For keto cookies, it’s crucial to find dark chocolate chips made with no sugar.
  • Peanut Butter – Natural peanut butter or other nut butter like almond butter or cashew butter, as well as sunflower seed butter are great to provide taste and texture to low-carb cookies.
  • Butter – Butter is often used to bring texture to the best keto cookie recipes.
  • Coconut – Unsweetened shredded coconut can bring a delicate flavor to keto cookies.
  • Eggs – Eggs are often necessary in low-carb baking to provide texture without having to add applesauce.

How To Make Keto Cookies

Making sugar-free cookies is quite easy once you have found the right ingredients and as long as you follow a tested, trusted recipe like the example I provide below.


To illustrate how easy you can make keto cookie recipes, I’ve taken the example of Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. To make them, you need typical low-carb cookie ingredients:

  • Natural Peanut Butter
  • Softened Unsalted Butter
  • Crystal Sweetener
  • Egg
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Almond Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Sugar-free Chocolate Chips
  • Salt


Making these cookies is ridiculously easy as it consists in first combining the liquid ingredients with the erythritol and beating them in a bowl before incorporating the dry ingredients.

Once the chocolate chips are added, the dough is divided into balls on a baking sheet before being flattened and cooked at 350°F (180°C) for 15 minutes.

Storage Instructions

Most keto cookie recipes can be kept for one to two weeks in a sealed cookie jar in a cool, dry, and dark place.

They can also be kept in the fridge in an airtight container.

Alternatively, all keto cookies can be frozen for up to three months in the freezer and thawed in the fridge overnight.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you have a cookie on keto?

A typical classic cookie recipe contains more than 25 grams of net carbs per serving.
On a keto diet, you are generally trying to limit your net carbs for a whole day between 20 and 30 grams of net carbs.
As a result, a single classic cookie can fill your net carbs intake so it’s not advised to eat any on a low-carb keto diet.
You need to make your own keto cookies instead.

Will one cookie break ketosis?

Yes, a single cookie contains, on average, 25 grams of net carbs. Not only does this most likely cover your whole net carbs for a day, but it’s almost certain to immediately take you out of ketosis with a massive spike in blood sugar levels.

What cookie has the lowest carbs?

Unless they are clearly labeled as keto-friendly, commercial cookies are typically in the range of 15g to 45 grams of net carbs per serving.
Some store-bought keto cookies can be found with 5 to 10 grams of net carbs.
Making your own keto cookies with the recipes in this post allows you to adjust the size of your cookies to reduce the number of net carbs.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and lightly oil paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, using an electric beater, beat softened unsalted butter, natural peanut butter, egg, vanilla extract, and erythritol until smooth and creamy.
  • Add in almond flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla extract.
  • Beat the dough on the low-speed setting until fully incorporated, then using a spatula, fold in the sugar-free chocolate chips.
  • Roll 8 dough balls between lightly greased hands and place each dough ball on the cookie sheet leaving half a thumb of space between each.
  • Slightly flatten each cookie dough ball and add extra sugar-free dark chocolate chunks on top if you like.
  • Bake in the center rack of the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown on the side.
  • Let the cookies fully cool down on the cookie sheet before transferring them on a wire rack to bring to room temperature. The cookies firm up as they cool down on the cookie sheet, so be patient.
  • Store in a cookie jar at room temperature for up to 5 days or freeze and thaw at room temperature.

Hi, I'm Carine, the food blogger, author, recipe developer, published author of a cookbook and many ebooks, and founder of Sweet As Honey.

I have an Accredited Certificate in Nutrition and Wellness obtained in 2014 from Well College Global (formerly Cadence Health). I'm passionate about sharing all my easy and tasty recipes that are both delicious and healthy. My expertise in the field comes from my background in chemistry and years of following a keto low-carb diet. But I'm also well versed in vegetarian and vegan cooking since my husband is vegan.

I now eat a more balanced diet where I alternate between keto and a Mediterranean Diet

Cooking and Baking is my true passion. In fact, I only share a small portion of my recipes on Sweet As Honey. Most of them are eaten by my husband and my two kids before I have time to take any pictures!

All my recipes are at least triple tested to make sure they work and I take pride in keeping them as accurate as possible.
