Looking for a low carb cookie that tastes yummy too?

You’ve gotta try these DELICIOUS Peanut Butter Cookies using just three simple ingredients. They puff up a little bit, have great flavor, and kind of melt in your mouth. In fact, you’d never guess they’re low carb at all!

A few years ago we shared a very easy 3 Ingredient Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookie recipe that fellow Hip2Save readers really enjoyed. The recipe I’m sharing today is basically a low carb variation to that popular idea!

If you’re following a Low Carb or Keto lifestyle make sure to pick a natural peanut butter that has no sugar or low sugar. You’ll also need a sugar substitute such as erythritol.

    LOVE these low carb recipes!!!

  2. Tricka

    I make these alot…so good!!

  3. cheapcheapgoesmommy

    Will this work with splenda? These look sooo yummy!!!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes an artificial sweetener would work – however if someone is following a strict Keto diet a natural sweetener like Erythritol or Stevia is better. Essentially use the sweetener that works best for you – hope that helps. ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Patty

    I love that you are actually stating/posting about keto. I know that’s the way you eat, Collin, and I’d love to see more. Keto WOE!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. MrsO

    We liked this recipe! We’ve been really enjoying Keto. For breakfast tomorrow I’m making Keto friendly Cheese Danish ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Patty

      I’m all for keto, think it makes perfect sense, but I’m one of the few that only had 5 pounds to lose and I actually gained 3. Not uncommon from everything I read, so I just need to keep up with it!!!

      • Norita

        Keto is not magic. Unlike what a lot of people will tell you, you cannnot jsut eat all you want and still lose weight. Its still basically calories in and calories out. Make sure you are taking in less fat and calories than you are burning in a day and you should start burning those 5# off. Just remember, keto is burning fat for energy. That fat can come from your bodyfat or your dinner plate. So if you are eating fat bombs, coconut oil by the spoon full and all the butter you can eat, you will be burning dietary fat and never start buring your bodyfat.

    • sharon

      Oooh I would love the recipe if you feel like sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Aleshia

    I have a great recipe for “pancakes”
    2 eggs
    1 over ripe mashed banana
    Cinnamon
    Vanilla

    Cook like you would cook pancakes. I use whole butter. It is actually really good for digestion in moderation.

    Top with almond butter.

    If you omit the almond butter you can add 1 scoop chocolate protein powder for extra protein and a chocolate banana flavor.

    • Gerta

      My brother made me these Aleshia and they are delish! He made his in a non-stick pan. Is that what you use?

      • Aleshia

        Yes, I used a non stick pan, but like I said I also rubbed the pan with butter. I uses to shy away from all things fat, but it is actually good for us in certain forms and in moderation. I didn’t use much at all though.

    • MS

      This is not a keto recipe due to the banana. Just fyi.

      • Aleshia

        I know that it isn’t keto, but still very healthy and bananas are a great source of potassium.

      • Patty

        MS, yeah, at first I was like “a banana”? But then I realized they were just offering a recipe. If people only knew how “unhealthy” a banana is……

    • Angela V.

      Thanks for sharing, sounds yummy!

  7. sharon

    I just started keto this week so this is perfect timing! I’m going to try them this weekend. Thanks for everything you guys do! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Patty

      Have fun Sharon! Don’t fall for all the non-keto info out there though. Read a ton!!!!

      • lils

        I started 2 weeks ago. lost 10 but gained back 2 somehow ๐Ÿ™ I also feel like I am getting discouraged and cheesed out!!! as in all this cheese is getting overated lol

  8. MrsG

    How about agave as a sweetener?

  9. Flgrl

    I’ve used honey instead of sugar. Turned out really good.

  10. Gayle

    Could you use honey as a sweetener? Just thought. I’ve just started using it in my coffee with half and half, its good.

  11. twizzdmob

    I like these better than the regular pb cookies. Can taste the peanut butter so much more!

  12. Centerofattn315

    Just a note for anyone following keto, that peanuts (and therefore peanut butter) are legumes and not nuts which means they can cause inflammation and not a part of a strict keto way of eating. Other nut butters could be substituted though.

  13. Laura

    I have no idea what Keto is ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • Centerofattn315

      Low carb, high fat, moderate protein
      Anti inflammatory whole food way of eating. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Norita

      Keto is simply starving your body of carbs, so it is forced to burn fat (as ketones) for energy. Cutting carbs from your diet. It does not have to be high fat diet. Simply ultra low carb

  14. Bray

    I always add some sea salt to this recipe soooo yummy!

  15. Lucretia

    I learned to make these in home ec in the 6th grade… just with sugar. LOL

  16. Rach

    If you are strictly following keto, peanut butter might actually kick you out of ketosis. Peanut is not a nut, its legume, and legume is not keto approve. If not, this is a great low carb dessert/snack and I love this one! Super easy with only 3 ingredients ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

  17. Tina

    LOVE that you’re posting about Keto! I’m almost 3 weeks into my Keto journey hoping that it helps me with my fertility issues. I also have a terrible sweet tooth so this is great, thanks!

    • 3WonkyDogs

      Tina- I wish all the best

    • Patty

      Ooohh, I hear it helps fertility issues!!! Myth or not, keep thinking it and it will happen. Good luck! (and have fun with all the crazy stares you get from people. I have stopped telling people about keto ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Aw thanks for sharing Tina and best wishes!

  18. Michelle

    I occasionally make these with almond butter. Peanuts kick me out of ketosis but almonds in moderation don’t. It’s a delicious and super easy recipe. Sometimes I add a slivered almond or a few Lilly’s chocolate chips on top and once I added maple extract and cinnamon to the batter. It’s such an amazing and versatile recipe.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Great tips! Thanks for sharing michelle!

  19. Donna

    My batter was so sticky – any idea what I did wrong?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh interesting. Did you stir quite a bit? I used a large egg not sure if that makes a diff?

  20. KIM joy

    I added 1/8 cup coconut flour works better

    • Lina D

      Great idea thanks!

  21. suzanne m

    im making these now to try out before sharing them at work.. i had a problem with them sticking to the fork.. maybe it was the almond butter i used instead of peanut butter.. the dough tasted good on my fingers.. i cant wait to have a completed cookie ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Julie

    These are wonderful,
    But so so dry ..
    What can I do??

    • Jacob

      I had the same issue when I made these. Literally needed a glass of water nearby, so I didn’t choke on them. I can’t figure out how it went wrong as I followed the directions to a tee.

  23. Julie

    Do you think you could use swerve confectioners? If so, same amount? Thanks for any help!
