20 Wonderful Keto Peanut Butter Recipes

keto peanut butter recipes

When you first went on the keto diet, many of your favorites become No-Nos. Potato chips, sweet potato fries, soda…

Thankfully good old peanut butter isn’t one of them. Since it’s high in fat, moderate in protein, and reasonably low in net carbs, you can still have some. It’s indeed one of those keto snacks that you can actually have freely on the ketogenic diet.

But besides adding some to your keto toast, what else can you do with it? Lots!

Today, I’m sharing keto peanut butter recipes that are not only delicious but good for you as well.  I also include the macros so you can keep track of your diet.

1. Keto Peanut Butter Blossoms

Keto Peanut Butter Blossoms


Many of you may have grown up eating peanut butter cookies. So, they probably bring back warm memories.

But, peanut butter cookies back in the day were made with tons of sugar. Tons of it.

These peanut butter blossoms are an updated keto twist of your classic peanut butter cookies.

They are sweet and chewy. The creamy whipped chocolate ganache is a nice complement to the peanut butter.

Best of all, they only contain 4 grams of net carbs. So, you can eat them without cheating on your diet.

To keep them low carb, you will be using a variety of low carb flours, including peanut flour. Peanut flour not only makes the cookies lower in carbs but adds a pleasant peanut taste to the cookies.

Peanut flour is a low carb flour that is made by grinding peanuts and then removing the oil. What you have left is a low carb, high protein flour that is also low in calories.

So, peanut flour is perfect for combining with higher fat flours such as almond flour and coconut flour. This way, you still get the fat but save on calories. If you would like to try some, you can get some here.

These cookies are pretty easy to make. Just combine your wet ingredients with your dry ingredients.

Then, form your dough into balls and put them on a cookie sheet, flattening them. Bake for 15 minutes and allow them to cool. Then make your chocolate ganache, which is just as easy.

2. Microwave Peanut Butter Cake

Microwave Peanut Butter Cake


It’s nice to bake something sweet when you have company coming over. But, what if you don’t have an oven, what do you do then?

Make my microwave peanut butter cake! It’s beautiful and moist-just like a “real” cake, and best of all, it has a delicious peanut butter flavor.

It is also packed with fat and protein, so it’s pretty filling. It makes for a sweet snack or even a light breakfast.

Best, of all, it just takes 10 minutes to make…from scratch.

To keep it low carb, you will be using almond flour. Almond flour is a great low carb flour that is also nutritious.

It’s a great source of manganese and vitamin E, which you need for healthy bones and glowing skin.

And you can use almond flour just the same way that you would use regular flour. If you would like to stock up on almond flour, you can get some here.

Are you a fan of Reese’s peanut butter cups? Then, definitely give these a try.

They have a creamy peanut butter base, and a lovely dark chocolate topping. And they taste just like Reese’s peanut butter cups…but without all the carbs.

They also have a whopping 23 grams of fat. So, they make for a pretty tasty fat bomb.

And the great thing is that you don’t bake these bars. Just whip together your ingredients and spread your batter on a pan.

Next, add some melted chocolate chips. Then put your bars in the fridge to harden…it’s that easy!

Enjoy with a nice cup of coffee or tea.

4. 4-Ingredient Keto Peanut Butter Cookies

Keto Peanut Butter Cookies


Do you just want a simple recipe that doesn’t have a ton of ingredients? This one is for you!

These cookies are nice and soft. And taste almost like the original.

Best of all, you need only 4 ingredients: peanut butter, eggs, pure vanilla extract, and a sweetener. I recommend erythritol as it is one of the best sweeteners on the market right now.

It also won’t spike your blood sugars. And unlike some other sweeteners, it doesn’t have a bitter aftertaste. You can find some here.

These cookies are great just the way they are. But feel free to add other ingredients like unsweetened chocolate chips, peanuts, and even walnuts.

5. Keto Chocolate Cups

Keto Chocolate Cups


Can’t get enough of those keto Reese’s peanut butter cups? This is the recipe for you.

These chocolate cups are sweet and creamy. They also look so much like Reese’s peanut butter cups, and taste great too!

You don’t need a ton of ingredients either. Just 6: coconut oil, peanut butter, cacao powder, monk fruit sweetener, vanilla extract, and salt.

Coconut oil contains a lot of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are fats that boost your ketosis. MCTs can also reduce your appetite, leading you to lose weight.

So, these chocolate cups are not only tasty; they can help you lose weight too. Now, that’s a win in my books.

Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Fat Bombs


Did you love eating cookie dough as a kid? That was the best part of baking with your mom, right?

Well, you can recreate those memories and taste with these fat bombs!

They are creamy balls of peanut butter and chocolate goodness. You could eat more than one.

But, they are packed with a ton of fat. So, you feel full after eating one.

These fat bombs are also packed with tons of MCTs, thanks to the powdered MCT oil. Adding powdered MCT oil to your daily diet is a great way to boost your ketosis and speed up your weight loss.

You can add it to your coffee, smoothies, puddings, cakes, and even pancakes or waffles. I recommend this one as it has no GMOs or fillers.

7. Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting


What is better than chocolate or peanut butter? Chocolate and peanut butter together!

These keto cupcakes are extra chocolatey. That’s because they contain two types of chocolate: chocolate chips and cocoa.

And the peanut butter and peanut flour give the frosting give a delicious peanut butter taste- you will be in peanut butter heaven.

To keep them low carb, you not only use peanut flour but coconut flour as well.

Besides being low in carbs, coconut flour is also an excellent source of iron, which you need to keep your energy levels up.

And since coconut flour is pretty absorbent, you don’t need to use much of it. You can stock up on it here.

These cupcakes are great for when the company is coming. Not only are they pretty to look at, it only takes 18 minutes to make a batch of 18 of them.

So, you’re not stuck slaving in the kitchen. And have more time for what matters: relaxing or socializing with your friends.

Peanut butter and jam…it doesn’t get any more classic than that! Except for this time, you’re having it in the form of a mousse.

This mousse is simply divine. The flavors are perfectly balanced. You have the tartness of the berries complementing the sweetness of the peanut butter.

And it is so creamy and smooth. It’s just like silk in your mouth.

The homemade jam is over the top. You can buy sugar-free raspberry jam if you’re in a pinch.

But, making the chia raspberry jam is so easy to do. To make it, cook the raspberries in the microwave for one minute.

Then, add your chia seeds to your raspberries and mix well. Then refrigerate for one hour. That’s all there is to it!

In case you’re wondering what kind of skillet to use, you’ll be using a cast-iron skillet.

That is because cast iron skillets cook and brown food more evenly. So, you don’t have to continually rotate your skillet to ensure equal browning in the oven. If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, you can get one here.

This skillet cookie is amazing just the way it is. But feel free to serve it with some low carb vanilla ice cream.
