I made these keto peanut butter cookies with monk fruit, also known as Lakanto sugar. This sweetener is made from the Monk fruit extract. The extract is 150 to 200 times sweeter than sugar.  Monk fruit sugar contacts zero calories, zero carbohydrates, zero sodium, and zero fat.

Eating Dessert on Keto Diet

There are so many great low carb dessert recipes to tame your sweet tooth. Most of the low carb recipes usually just substitute the regular flour with coconut flour, almond flour as well as flax meal.

I love that this low-carb peanut butter cookie recipe doesn’t have any flour. Just four simple ingredients that most people already have in their pantry. The monk sugar isn’t really a pantry staple but should be if you are following a low-carb diet or keto diet. You could substitute stevia for monk fruit sugar as well but I find that some stevia has a bitter flavor to it.

Not only are these low-carb peanut butter cookies easy but they are delicious. Your entire family will love them and will not even know that they are low carb cookies.
