More Keto Cookies Recipes

There are so many great low carb cookie recipes! On KetoAndEat you can find some of the best keto cookie recipes available. Here are a few of my favorites:

Natural Peanut Butter

To make these low carb high protein peanut butter cookies, I used natural smooth peanut butter without any added sugar or oil.

Always read the label of your peanut butter to make sure it doesn’t contain any other ingredients that can add extra carbs to the recipe.

Unfortunately, there are many brands that make highly processed peanut butter that is not healthy.

Almond Flour

I used almond flour as the base of this keto peanut butter protein cookie recipe. Almond flour is a great option for those on a low carb diet as it is low in carbs.

I use it in many of my keto recipes- I like the texture it provides and the nutty flavor it adds.

Almond flour can be bought at most grocery stores and health food stores. You can also grind up your own almonds if you have a food processor.

Whey Vanilla Protein Powder

I used whey vanilla-flavored protein powder to make these cookies. Feel free to use any whey protein powder you prefer.

Make sure it’s low in carbs. Any flavor will work, but I found that the vanilla protein powder gave these cookies a nice flavor.

I like this recipe so much also because I workout and these cookies are perfect for a post-workout snack!

The whey protein powder makes them very high in protein, and the peanut butter gives them that extra boost of energy.

Freezing

I don’t recommend freezing these peanut butter protein cookies, the texture will be ruined. These are best enjoyed fresh from the oven!
