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).

Instructions

Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  • 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.

Chocolate Drizzle

  • 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.

Notes

Nutritional information is for the peanut butter cookies only. Carbs are net carbs as the sweetener is zero net carbs. 
Chocolate drizzle is approx 1-2 tsp per cookie and adds approx. 9 calories, 1 carb, 1 protein, and 1 fat per cookie.
I used almost an entire 28 ounce jar of Whole Foods brand organic, smooth, unsweetened peanut butter.

Ingredients

Peanut Butter Fudge

Chocolate Topping

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

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.
