I am a cookie girl. I bake dozens and dozens of cookies leading up to Christmas and in the cold days of winter. But in the summer I still want cookies. What’s a girl to do? Turn to no bake cookies!
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.
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.
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.
Ingredients for Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies
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.
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.
Mix-Ins for Keto No Bake Cookies
Chocolate chips are a great addition to these! Chopped dark chocolate or sugar-free white chocolate chips are yummy too.
You can sub in almond butter and add unsweetened dried cranberries and cinnamon for a fall treat.
Or, instead of mixing something in drizzle some chocolate on top!
If you are doing Trim Healthy Mama and don’t mind a crossover feel free to add some oats!
