Are you a cookie snacker? I always like a good cookie! While my favourite is chocolate chip, PB is my second fav and I have to admit – these keto peanut butter cookies are rapidly rising to the top of my cookie list!
Cripsy, moist and DELICIOUS. These low carb peanut butter cookies are also fairly large which is perfect! For this recipe, I based it off my chocolate chip cookie recipe and it did not disappoint.
As with most of my recipes, I really like to use whey isolate. Especially in cookies – it makes them fluffier, crispier and most importantly – that wheat flour texture but without the wheat. Honestly, in my opinion, the isolate makes or breaks these recipes! It’s a must if you want that typical cookie feeling.
These are truly the BEST keto peanut butter cookies!
Crispy and delicious! These keto peanut butter cookies are a perfect snack at only 1.5 net carbs per cookie!
In a large mixing bowl, use a stand mixer or spatula to cream the butter, peanut butter, sugar substitute and vanilla together.
Crack in the egg and mix again.
Pour in the almond flour, whey isolate, baking soda and xanthan gum.
Mix thoroughly. Make sure that the dough is very well mixed and that there are no clumps of butter in the dough.
Place tbsp size balls of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave enough room between so they can spread (they will!!)
Bake at 350°F / 175°C on the bottom rack for 12 minutes.
This makes roughly 20 cookies
