Keto No Bake Cookies

Recipe Update- We have seen some comments on social media stating they don't like this recipe because they "taste too much like peanut butter" or "have a fudge like texture instead of a cookie".  Keto coconut cookies are a great alternative to the high carb oats. 

Our explanation-  These no bake cookies are meant to be a low carb, keto snack approved version of a traditional NO BAKE COOKIE.  Which... is nothing like a cookie at all. They too, tend to have a more fudge like texture. 

Traditional No Bakes Taste Like Chocolate Peanut Butter

As for the peanut butter flavor, well yes. These taste like peanut butter unless you add cocoa to make the chocolate peanut butter version. Hope this additional information helps clarify what the recipe is!

You can of course make them chocolate keto cookies! See below.

Keto Dessert Recipes

A quick look at alternative sweeteners.  

Unfortunately, it can be hard to cut back refined sugar and get use to the flavor of all natural sweeteners. These keto no bake cookies are a great way to transition into using all natural sweetener because very little is needed. Recipes like low carb no bake cookies can help your palette adjust to the sweetener flavor. 

What I have found is that with natural sweeteners there is an adjustment period. At first everything seems bitter and tart, but sweet. So weird how it can be both, right?  Trust us, the weird taste fades.  Each day that you make the swap it gets easier. A good way to get use to sweetener flavor is in recipes like chocolate keto cookies, it helps cut the bitterness.

Our Sweetener Recommendations

 This no bake keto cookies have saved my life, not joking! They help me kick any craving that may otherwise have kicked me out of ketosis.

 We recommend monkfruit or stevia as a natural sweetener.  You will adjust, keep with it!

I am using up the last of my stevia as we speak.  We found that monkfruit is far less bitter and has absolutely no after taste or cooling.  Then,  tricked my whole family into using their maple syrup.

Is Peanut Butter Keto?

Ok so these keto no bake cookies are made with peanut butter. There is a lot of debate about whether or not peanuts and peanut butter are actually keto approved.  Here is the short story on that -  the keto diet eliminates legumes. A peanut is technically a legume.

However, they do not affect the blood sugar as traditional legumes do.  Using an all natural peanut butter will give a higher fiber count with lower sugar. Thus, less carbs.  There are a lot of keto dessert recipes out there using peanut butter. 

If you eat 100% strict keto or Paleo keto, you can skip the peanut butter and use any nut butter you desire.

    • You can, but Truvia isn't keto friendly as it is a mix of sugar and stevia. It may be ok for a low carb diet.

  1. I’m so excited! No Bake Cookies are my fav, thanks so much for Keto-fying them!

  2. Terrific! I made these cookies just as you described and found they tasted better the next day. I was surprised that 2 cookies did hit the sweet spot and fill me up. Stored them in the fridge. Thanks and I will be trying more of your recipes.

  3. These are super easy to make and a delicious treat! I used 1/4 powdered swerve instead of liquid stevia and added 1/2 cup of Lilly's chocolate chips, heated it up to melt the chocolate- so delicious! Glad I found this recipe!

  4. I modified the recipe and used sugar free maple syrup and omg they are amazing! Thank you for sharing this awesome treat! Love it!!!!
