Keto No-Bake Cookie Ingredients

You only need a few ingredients to make these sensational keto-friendly cookies at home.

To make the coating, you'll need to mix melted keto-friendly chocolate with coconut oil. So easy, anyone can do it!


How to Make Keto No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

It couldn't be any easier to make no-bake keto peanut butter cookies. Mix the peanut butter, coconut flour, sweetener, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl until totally smooth. Scoop the dough onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Press them down slightly to flatten them, then transfer the tray to your freezer for at least 1 hour so the filling can harden up.

After an hour, beat the coconut oil and melted keto chocolate in a bowl to combine. Dunk the peanut butter filling into the chocolate mixture with a fork. Make sure it's entirely coated, then pop it back onto the tray. Repeat with the remaining peanut butter fillings. Drizzle with extra melted peanut butter and freeze for 10 more minutes, then enjoy!
