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.

Enjoy,

    I make a simialr one, and i bet that's exactly what's missing is the 1 tbsp of coconut flour to hold it together alike a cookie. mine tend to crumble. thanks for the recipe!

      Hi NSAngel, these cookies do not crumble at all. They have a moist middle. I hope you enjoy them!

    I also love peanut butter and peanut butter cookies. Actually anything with peanut butter is pretty darn good. I love that you used coconut, the taste must be great. However I've never heard of xylitol, will have to check it out. Thanks for sharing.

    (P.S. Please make sure you add the YBR banner. I have to see it on your blog before I can add you to the roundup on Wednesday. Thanks!)

    I so miss peanut cookies with the cross marks made with a fork. To me that always meant peanut butter cookies, wow this brings me back!

    I'm obsessed with Peanut butter cookies! These look delicious 🙂 I love how quick these are, need to give these a try!

    • Ditch The Wheat February 29 at 1:40 am #

      Very quick! I have only tried the cookies with Splenda and Xylitol but they will probably work with any granular sweetener.

    i made a variation (at the mercy of the pantry) of these on Saturday around 1:30am. hubby and i wanted a midnight snack, these were my go-to! the only sweetener i have is truvia and honey. i opted for truvia (1 1/2 tsp). i used almond flour (2 tbsp). i added a tsp of vanilla…couldn't resist. they crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. hit the spot! loved them!

      Hi Melissa!

      I've been there too and made peanut butter cookies! I've made other variations like no sweetener/honey. I mixed together peanut butter, egg, and almond meal to give it bulk. Tasted plain but was still good and hit the spot.

    • Veronica October 11 at 10:16 am #

      Melissa , when you say you use 1 1/2 tsp of truvia, do you mean the liquid or powder ? I am dying to make these, but want to know which one is best! Thanks

    Sounds good, but how many carbs per cookie?

    • CAROLditchthewheat October 15 at 4:22 pm #

      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).

  7. Yanni July 20 at 4:40 pm #

    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!

    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…..: )

  9. Lori Kaumans September 12 at 5:34 pm #

    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.
