Chocolate & Peanut Butter Keto No Bake Cookies

One of the women in our church group recently had a baby, but 2 weeks afterwards you couldn’t tell at all! (And amazingly this was her sixth kiddo!)

I asked her secret, and she filled me in on the Keto diet – raving about how she never feels hungry and still gets to eat all the foods she loves.

With a baby on the way this summer, I was definitely intrigued! Last time it took me quite a while to lose the baby weight (though I did get it all off eventually). However, anything that could help speed up the process is worth a look!

About 6 months after my youngest daughter was born, my husband and I took the plunge and started keto ourselves. It really made a huge difference in pushing me past that plateau with baby weight!

These sugar free no bake cookies were and still are one of my all-time favorite keto recipes!

Whenever I felt weak in willpower or was craving something sweet, I could reach into the freezer and grab one of my trusty low carb cookies. Sweet tooth satisfied…back on track!

Having a go-to keto cookie recipe made all the difference in sticking with the program and not feeling deprived.

These no bake keto cookies are rich, fudge-y and taste super decadent! Yet they are only 4g in carbs and won’t kick you out of ketosis!

I hope you love them as much as I do!

How to Make Keto No Bake Cookies

Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone baking mat.

TIP: We love these silicone baking mats because they’re non-stick and washable, so you can use them again and again!

No bake cookie ingredients in mixing bowl

In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, vanilla extract, melted butter, coconut flake, cocoa powder, and sweetener (if using). Mix well by hand — the mixture will be gooey!

TIP: Feel free to add 1-2 teaspoons of Stevia or Swerve if you like your cookies a little sweeter.

Scoop the no bake cookie batter onto your prepared baking sheet. Use the back of the spoon (we used a 2 Tbsp coffee scoop) to gently shape each scoop into a 3″ cookie.

TIP: Cookie scooper is also handy for making the perfect portions!

How to Store Your Keto No Bake Cookies

I recommend storing your keto no bake cookies in the freezer, because they do start to melt if left out at room temperature.

Simply place your finished cookies in a large freezer bag or airtight container and keep frozen until you’re ready to enjoy them.

I love having a batch in the freezer at all times so I can grab one when cravings strike!

This recipe makes approximately (10) 3″ cookies or (20) 1.5″ cookies.

A Few Recipe Notes Based on Reader Questions

 I thought I’d answer some common reader questions here:

1. Can I substitute almond butter?

If peanut butter doesn’t work for you – sun butter, almond butter, and cashew butter may be an appropriate substitute. Try your favorite! Try them all!

2. I don’t like coconut — what else can I use instead?

If you’re not a fan of coconut, some readers have suggested using shredded almonds or other nuts as keto-friendly items that add crunch.

3. Four grams of carbs sounds like a lot for one cookie! Is that right??

This recipe is keto-friendly, but of course, these are cookies, so they’re intended to be a treat.

I don’t recommend eating them at every meal and expecting weight loss results, BUT if they keep you from craving other full-sugar and high-carb desserts, then they’re doing the job they’re intended to do. 🙂
