Keto friendly recipes: Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies

This is my first round of low carb baking and boy is it an easy recipe. 

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup of chunky peanut butter
1 cup of cream cheese
2 eggs
1.5 cups splenda
Whole peanuts for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 180C
  • Measure peanut butter and place in a mixing bowl
  • Put the cream cheese in the microwave for 10 secs to soften then add to the bowl
  • Put eggs and Splenda in the bowl and mix thoroughly. If you use an electric mixer be careful as this batter is very soft and can splash
  • Place baking paper on a baking tin, put a spoon of batter about 2 inches apart for each cookie. Smaller cookies are best as these are very calorie dense
  • Flatten the dough with a fork to form a cookie, these cookies will not spread so the size of  the cookie will remain the same after baking
  • Press one whole roasted peanut into the top of each cookie
  • Bake for 15 mins and then place on a cooling rack once cooked
  • The cookies will be very soft while warm, best to wait until cooled before picking up
  • Makes around 24 cookies
