Creamy, fudgey and crunchy are just a few words to describe these amazing keto no bake cookies. A perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth and get in some valuable macronutrients. Plus yummy chocolate keto cookies are one of the easiest keto dessert recipes we have ever made. Ditch the oats for keto coconut cookies.  Also considered low carb no bake cookies because they have such few carbs.

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. 


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.

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.

 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 monkfruitis far less bitter and has absolutely no after taste or cooling.  Then,  tricked my whole family into using their maple syrup.


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.
