Creamy, fudgey and crunchy are just a few words to describe these amazing keto no bake cookies. A perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth and get in some valuable macronutrients. Plus it is one of the easiest keto dessert recipes we have ever made.
Keto No Bake Cookies
Recipe Update- I have seen some comments on social media stating they don’t like this recipe because they “taste too much like peanut butter” or “have a fudge like texture instead of a cookie”.
Our explanation– These no bake cookies are meant to be a low carb, keto snack approved version of a traditional NO BAKE COOKIE. Which… is nothing like a cookie at all. They too, tend to have a more fudge like texture.
As for the peanut butter flavor, well yes. These taste like peanut butter unless you add cocoa to make the chocolate peanut butter version. I hope this additional information helps clarify what the recipe is!

Keto Dessert Recipes
A quick look at alternative sweeteners.
Unfortunately, it can be hard to cut back refined sugar and get use to the flavor of all natural sweeteners. These keto no bake cookies are a great way to transition into using all natural sweetener because very little is needed.
What I have found is that with natural sweeteners there is an adjustment period. At first everything seems bitter and tart, but sweet. I know. So weird how it can be both, right? Trust us, the weird taste fades. Each day that you make the swap it gets easier.
These no bake keto cookies have saved my life, not joking! They help me kick any craving that may otherwise have kicked me out of ketosis.
We recommend monkfruit or stevia as a natural sweetener. You will adjust, keep with it!
I am using up the last of my stevia as we speak. I found that monkfruitis far less bitter and has absolutely no after taste or cooling. I tricked my whole family into using their maple syrup. Ok, so moving on….
Is Peanut Butter Keto?
Ok so these keto no bake cookies are made with peanut butter. There is a lot of debate about whether or not peanuts and peanut butter are actually keto approved. Here is the short story on that – the keto diet eliminates legumes. A peanut is technically a legume.
However, they do not affect the blood sugar as traditional legumes do. Using an all natural peanut butter will give a higher fiber count with lower sugar. Thus, less carbs. There are a lot of keto dessert recipes out there using peanut butter.
If you eat 100% strict keto or Paleo keto, you can skip the peanut butter and use any nut butter you desire.
Carb count- 2 cookies has 3.2 NET carbs. If you are thinking that is a lot, remember there is 16 g of fat and the ingredients make these very filling.
Must be EXTREMELY tiny!! I only got 15 that are just barely bigger than a half dollar! How they got 2¨ balls and 18 cookies is BEYOND Me!! So many of these recipes are so wrong…tried Blueberry Breakfast bars and they were almost fillingless and so crumbly…must be missing something…cause not having much luck with alot of the keto recipes at all!
Maine girl here! Love love love these keto no bakes! We try to eat the good stuff, low carb and local when possible. This is a nice treat for those days when you just NEED dessert! Keep the good stuff coming!
Do you happen to know how many carbs are in each cookie. I just made them and can’t wait to try them. When I licked the bowl I was amazed how good it tastes I’m keeping them in a freezer bag in the freezer because with the warm weather I feel the will be a treat as a snack. Thank You Thank You Thank You!!!!!!!
These are wonderful! So quick and easy to make. Great for holidays! I made 3 batches…1)used almond butter and 2/3c of coconut and 1/3c chopped pecans also added the cocoa powder. I also used 1/4c powdered stevia blend instead of drops…seemed to be the perfect combination for the unsweetened cocoa. 2)Made exactly to the recipe using crunchy peanut butter and 1/8c of powdered stevia blend instead of drops. 3)Made exactly to the recipe with creamy peanut butter and 1/2c of lily’s chocolate chips. I used 1/4c powdered stevia blend (no drops) for this batch. I also warmed the entire mixture about 15 seconds in the microwave and gave it a final little mix around……the chips were just slightly gooey so it kinda drizzled the chocolate throughout the mixture. My husband said that these are addictive! Thanks so much for the recipe.? (The sweetener I used was steviva brand powdered)
I know this effects the calorie and carbs, but for those who want a more chocolatety flavor: add two table spoons of cocoa powder and 12 drops of sweetener, I used the caramel stevia drops. This makes the batter a little more dense, which is nice if you are using the organic peanut butters that tend to be a little oily (but only 5 carbs instead of 7-9). However, with the denseness, you get less cookies, I was able to do 10. I also like my cookies to be cookie sized, so I was generous. Each cookie is probably about 3 inches. Thanks for the inspiration/direction on how to make these, It’s a relief for my husband and I, strict keto and heading to a cookie party tonight! =)
These are a simple but lovely treat! I had slipped into using a protein bar(expensive & not ideal) as a holiday answer to all the treats. I made these with almond butter and a mix of erythritol and liquid stevia. OMG! Simply amazing. 16 months on keto and I wish I had known about these little morsels sooner. Thank you for the recipe.
Real butter, not margarine. In the stores it will be labeled as butter, but some people think when we say butter we mean whatever they have in the fridge that they consider “butter” , which can be anything. ??
I just made these because I was craving something sweet sooo bad. Used homemade low carb granola instead of coconut (as I didn’t have coconut to hand and most of the granola is coconut anyway) and they’re absolutely lush!
Terrific! I made these cookies just as you described and found they tasted better the next day. I was surprised that 2 cookies did hit the sweet spot and fill me up. Stored them in the fridge. Thanks and I will be trying more of your recipes.
These are super easy to make and a delicious treat! I used 1/4 powdered swerve instead of liquid stevia and added 1/2 cup of Lilly’s chocolate chips, heated it up to melt the chocolate- so delicious! Glad I found this recipe!
Top 10 Cookery Schools in America
Working in a restaurant is not like cooking at home for your friends and family, and even for the most passionate chefs, living in a professional kitchen may not be the right choice. Many of them don't understand or do not understand the extraordinary dedication, time and hard work they spend to be a real cook - a real cook alone.
Keep in mind these 10 things before applying to the culinary school and it is very important to get the right education if you still have the courage to offer the intensity of the culinary industry - or if you just burn with an unquenchable passion.
The chef, who wants every candidate, of course wants the best possible training to be the best possible chef. There are many training options for future young chefs, but where do you start? Which schools are the best?
To answer, The Daily Meal worked with Voss Water to present the top 10 culinary schools in America.
Facilities and trainers, diploma programs, reputation and remarkable graduates, length of study, and finally, tuition fees were assessed during the ranking process.
Although many schools offer pastry programs, undergraduate degrees, and hospitality management courses, associate and certificate degree programs have been evaluated primarily for comparison purposes - particularly with regard to the cost and duration of the study.
So if you dream of becoming the next Anthony Bourdain, David Chang or Daniela Soto-Innes, start with this list and choose the right school for you.
