Peanut butter. I feel like that is all I have to say. Peanut butter sums it up. I love peanut butter.Peanut butter loves me 😀 We are meant to be!
 
These cookies are addictive. So addictive I’m putting what I haven’t finished eating in the freezer for another day. You see this cookie looks all innocent. It is plain, very homely. It smells like peanut butter (that’s always a plus). I’m instantly drawn to it! Then I bite into it and I’m lost in the peanut butter and sweetness. Evil cute little cookies!!! I can’t stop at one. Neither can anyone else in this house.

What kind of peanut butter can you have on keto?

You can eat peanut butter that is labeled as natural with no sugar added (like this natural peanut butter) when on the ketogenic diet.  Two tablespoons of all natural no sugar added peanut butter has 7 grams of carbs and 3 grams of fiber which equals 4 net carbs per two tablespoons.

Is peanut butter OK for ketosis?

You can eat small quantities of all natural no sugar added peanut butter on the ketogenic diet. Even though there is no added sugar there are still carbs in the peanut butter. The carbs can add up quickly so keep in mind 2 tablespoons of all natural no sugar added peanut butter contains 4 net carbs.

What snacks can I have on the Keto diet?

You can eat these peanut butter cookies on the keto diet plus,  sliced cucumbers, pork rinds, cheese, avocados, bacon, and macadamia nuts.

Is erythritol the same as stevia?

No, they are not the same. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol often made from corn and can cause some gut issues in some people. Erythritol can be used cup for cup when replacing sugar in a recipe. Stevia is ground up stevia leaves that taste sweet like sugar but without the blood sugar affects of sugar. Stevia does not measure cup for cup when replacing sugar so it usually needs to be combined with a sweetener like erythritol to add bulk to a recipe.

How can I make these Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies Paleo friendly?

Switch the peanut butter for almond butter or cashew butter and use coconut palm sugar instead of erythritol.

I made these last night using erythritol and they are so good! Thanks for the recipe. I'd love to try a version using butter and cocoa powder to get a chocolate cookie, but unsure if it would bake up the same.

I am not a fan of super sweet and found the 1:1 pb to xylitol ratio a tad to sweet for my liking. Others out there with similar tastes might want to decrease the xylitol by 1/4 cup or so. off to get some milk to go wiht my cookies.....: )

These were awesome!! I've been low-carbing it for 3 weeks now and I was dying. These sent me into cookie comatose! I used erythitol instead of zylitol (sice I had it onhand)...yup, it has a cooling effect, but I didn't mind. I also added a pinch of powdered sucralose since I like my stuff super sweet. I'm making more TODAY! Thanks again!

Sounds good, but how many carbs per cookie?

Rick, I stopped posting carb amounts. You can use a service like fatsecret.com to check. The cookies will be around 2 net carbs each (1 cup of natural peanut butter is net 56 carbs/30 cookies).
