This is a delectable, yummy, quick peanut butter cookie recipe that is both low carb and keto-friendly. You can enjoy the cookies with or without the chocolate drizzle! However, you may struggle to eat them without a big glass of whole milk (for low carb, keto enjoy with a glass of unsweetened vanilla almond milk or non-dairy milk of your choice).
In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, butter, sweetener, vanilla, and salt. Beat until well combined.
Add almond flour and peanut butter to egg mixture and beat until well combined.
Add baking soda and gently mix until well combined.
Scoop 1.5 Tbsp cookie dough onto a parchment or silicone lined cookie sheet. The cookies will not spread out so feel free to place close together but leave a little room to press them down with a fork. I was able to fill 2 cookies sheets plus a pizza pan! I got 64 cookies out of one batch!
Bake for approx. 9 minutes. The cookies will not appear done but they will "harden" as they cool so do not overbake. Very important.
Allow cookies to cool for about 20-30 minutes before eating and/or drizzling with chocolate.
Gently heat cream and butter (you can microwave for about 40 seconds or heat on very low heat in a saucepan). If heating on stovetop remove from burner. Stir in butter and chocolate chips. Stir until chips and butter are melted and well combined. Add powdered sweetener and mix gently until well combined. Place chocolate in a vessel of your choice to drizzle. I used a quart-sized plastic baggie and cut the tip off of one of the lower corners. Allow to cool about 15-20 minutes before eating.
Sending a shout-out to Choc-Zero for sending a sample of their zero net carb caramel syrup! I used this to help create a truly decadent turtle cheesecake with the right touch of chocolate, caramel, and peanut flavors! You can enjoy it right along with us because I am including an “easy to whip up” recipe just for all of you! And, just 3 grams net carbs per slice! Who’s ready to dig in?

This is it! This recipe took a lot of time and patience to perfect but I've nailed it! This is a soft and delicious Keto friendly, low carb hamburger bun! It holds up just fine to mayo and no-sugar-added ketchup. Don't forget to add some lettuce and a thinly sliced heirloom tomato! Break out the grill and get ready for BBQ season!!
Whisk together eggs and cream of tartar in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until frothy.
Add cream cheese and butter and whisk until well combined and smooth.
Add flour, whey, arrowroot, baking powder, Xanthan gum, and sea salt. Whisk until it becomes like wet dough.
Using a spatula fold in mozzarella cheese (the recipe works best and tastes best with a good quality organic mozzarella cheese)
With oiled hands gather up dough and shape into a ball. You will want it to fit cupped in the palm of your hand. Slightly bigger than a ping pong ball. Ours makes 12 even dough balls pressed down into a silicon pan that is made especially for hamburger buns (click to view the one we used).
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.
I've literally made a version of this about 12 times trying to nail it! I finally did and now am sharing with all of you! This has everything you are hoping for... creamy, sweet, chocolatey, and does not crumble! It is the perfect balance of flavors. It is also wonderful for making buckeyes for the holidays! Bookmark or print this recipe so you'll always have it handy. Be sure to come back and let me know how you liked it.
Gently melt butter (stovetop or microwave, whichever you prefer). Remove from heat.
Add in peanut butter, vanilla, whey, and powdered Swerve (or powdered erythritol), and sea salt. Mix hard until it is well combined.
Pour peanut butter fudge into a 12 x 16 cookie sheet with, at least, a 1-inch lip around the pan. We line ours with parchment paper.
Gently warm the heavy whipping cream in a large bowl. Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips. Allow to sit for about 30 seconds so the chocolate chips can melt. Stir to combine.
Add vanilla and room temp (or melted) butter and powdered Swerve. Stir to combine and pour over peanut butter fudge.
Place in refrigerator and allow to set up for, at least, an hour. The longer it sets up the better it tastes and holds together. We find it is the best the following day.
When cut into 48 equal pieces each piece comes out to just 1 g net carb!We absolutely love this cookie sheet and use it especially for making our peanut butter candy.Important Note: You can make just the peanut butter part and serve as peanut butter fudge -- so, so good!This is not something I would make on a regular basis but would be fantastic for holiday events! You can definitely make Southern Buckeyes out of these.We do not include the carbs from sugar alcohol sweeteners (such as Swerve, Lakanto, or Erythritol), as they have zero net carbs and have been shown to not raise blood sugar levels.
Two words... they spread when baking!! And, just in case you are new to Keto... This. Is. Huge! I cannot wait for you to try them! Come back and let me know how it worked out for you. Oh, and the taste is on point! Even my non-Keto friends and neighbor said, "This is it! I have to have the recipe!"
In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, vanilla, and sweeteners. Using a fork mix ingredients together until well combined. Slowly add the melted butter. Stirring after each addition of the butter. Make sure the butter is not so hot as to "cook" the eggs.
Next add almond flour, whey, and gelatin. Stir to combine. Slowly add in melted butter and continue mixing.
Now add xanthan gum, baking soda, and a dash of sea salt. Mix gently to combine.
Fold in chocolate chips until well combined.
Make 36 evenly sized cookies, placing them on a parchment paper, or silicone mat lined baking sheet. These will spread so leave room between them. We actually made 18 huge cookies because I was not expecting them to spread! This was a new recipe I was trying and it came out WAY better than I ever imagined!!
Baking time will depend on your altitude. Ours took right at 13 minutes. We live at a high altitude. Lower altitudes may take less time, begin checking around the 7-8 minute mark. The edges will appear slightly browned and the middle may appear as it is not done. It is done. You do not want to over bake these. These are not the kind of cookies you eat immediately out of the oven. They must, must, must set up for, at least, 10-15 minutes.
Nutrition Macros are based on 36 cookies from 1 batch of this recipe. We did not include the macros from the Lakanto as this is a sugar alcohol and has no effect on blood sugar levels. Lakanto is zero net carbs.These cookies end up being less than 1 net carb (0.7g) per cookie!

Can we just say, “this works!”? Seriously, we have not experienced one solicitor interruption since placing this on our front door. The reason we designed it to fit VistaPrint’s small car magnets is that a lot of front doors are steel and this will magnetize to the door. However, there are options we will provide for those who do not have a magnetized door. Either way, get this printed, it does not cost much and is SO worth it!!

These chocolates are perfect when you are craving little bites of peppermint heaven! At just 1.4 net carbs (2.2 g total) you can indulge a little without feeling guilty. You could put 4 in a little chocolate box to give as a gift to a friend or co-worker. You could take one or two to a party so you can enjoy a little sweet treat with the rest of the guests. You could also use a few to decorate the top of a birthday cake! So many possibilities. We love that they are quick and easy to make and hope you enjoy!
Over the past 16 years, little by little, I've been perfecting this recipe and it is amazing! We feel it is better than any restaurant out there! The key is to not go too heavy. You want just enough to coat but not enough that it appears you are breading with the seasoning instead of lightly seasoning. You can read more tips in the recipe notes! This makes a big batch that should last you for a couple of months, give or take.
Add all ingredients into a medium mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Store in an air-tight container and place in a dry area in your cabinet.
This makes approximately 2.5 cups or 40 tablespoons. We use about 2-3 teaspoons per 4 medium-large sized chicken breasts. Just to give you an idea about how much to use. Be sure to rub the meat with olive (or an oil of your choice) oil first and then lightly season the cut strips.If you like more heat, increase the cayenne pepper by another 1 or 2 teaspoons. Experiment and make it your own! We hope you enjoy.Note: we did not include macros because it really depends on how much you use but the macros will be very little, maybe half to a full carb per tablespoon. We just do not find it enough to make a huge difference in the grand scheme of a full days count but if you are concerned, add a carb to your daily count and that should be more than sufficient.
Before anyone goes looking for the oatmeal; there is no oatmeal in this recipe. However, it tastes just like a big bowl of blueberry oatmeal! Seriously, it is outstanding!!
