These keto no bake cookies are simple enough for kids to make on their own. Just a little mixing, forming into balls, and pressing with a fork for the classic peanut butter cookie design.
These are a must to make when the weather turns hot and humid!

Peanut Butter - Make sure to choose peanut butter without added sugar. I prefer peanut butter that is just peanuts and salt.
Coconut Flour - Just a little bit of coconut flour goes a long way. Coconut flour helps to balance the oiliness of the peanut butter in this recipe since it is naturally drier and absorbs more liquid than other alternative flours.
Sugar-Free Syrup - You can use any sugar-free syrup but check the ingredients. Many have sweeteners and additives that aren't keto or Trim Healthy Mama friendly.
Powdered Sweetener - Most of the time I use my own blend of xylitol, erythritol, and stevia but there are some recipes that work better using a store-bought powdered sweetener. Those are ground finer than you can normally get in your home kitchen.
How to Make Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies
Making peanut butter no bake cookies is as simple as mixing together four ingredients, shape the dough into balls, and pressing down with a fork.
This is easy enough for kids to help with and quick enough to whip up any time your peanut butter cookie craving hits.
Variations & Mix-Ins
Chocolate - Chocolate chips are a great addition to these! Chopped dark chocolate or sugar-free white chocolate chips are yummy too. Or, instead of mixing something in drizzle some chocolate on top!
Cranberry Cinnamon - You can sub in almond butter and add unsweetened dried cranberries and cinnamon for a fall treat.
Oats - If you aren't keto or are doing Trim Healthy Mama and don't mind a crossover feel free to add some oats!
Can I use another type of nut butter?
Yup! You can use almond butter, cashew butter, or even sunflower seed butter. If the nut butter of your choice is wetter or drier than peanut butter you may need to decrease or increase the amount of coconut flour.
What are no bake cookies?
No bake cookies are basically any kind of cookie-shaped treat that doesn't require cooking. There are dozens of varieties. The most popular type seems to include oats. I choose to keep this recipe grain-free to keep the carb count down.

This cookie tastes like raw cookie dough! Can I bake them?
I haven't tried. Maybe just put one or two in the oven as a test.
Marissa Dunn says
Really dry recipe, I did not enjoy the texture at all. I tried adding melted butter, vanilla extract, other liquids to no avail. Creative idea to use sugar free syrup in your desserts though.
Sorry, you didn't like them! You may like my peanut butter balls better. They don't have coconut flour which I think was probably what you didn't like in these. https://joyfilledeats.com/healthy-peanut-butter-balls/

Can I use almond flour for this? And if so do I use the same amount?
You will need more to dry out the peanut butter enough to form into cookies.
I made these, actually just one to try it. I love pb cookies and miss them terribly. What would I use instead of the sugar free syrup (maple lakanto). It’s all i could taste.
You could use almond milk and then just add additional powdered sweetener to taste.
Brandie A Faron says
What are the net carbs?
If you make 15 cookies they each have 3 net carbs.
These look great! I bet you could melt some sugar free chocolate chips and dip them to make peanut butter balls for Christmas cookies.
Lindsey Giragosian says
Question: is the serving size one cookie or the entire recipe?
One cookie. Servings are listed near the top of the recipe card.

Loved how quickly these came together. We are a peanut loving family but are watching carbs and sugar right now so these were perfect!
