HOW TO MAKE KETO PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE-COVERED COOKIES
These no-bake cookies are so easy to make and are practically effortless. The only part that takes a little bit is letting them chill, but it goes fast. To start, you should mix both flours, stevia, and salt in a large bowl. Once combined, add in the peanut butter and sugar-free syrup.
Using your hands, you need to form the dough into a tube shape and use a knife to cut off slices that are approximately 1/4 inch thick. Feel free to make the dough into all sorts of shapes or leave them as circles. Refrigerate the cookies while you melt the chocolate and coconut oil.
When the chocolate and coconut are ready, begin dipping both sides of the cookies in the mixture then refrigerate them on a baking sheet.
The peanut butter cookies should chill in the fridge from 30 minutes to an hour. The chocolate should set up, and you are ready to devour them!
HOW LONG DO THESE PEANUT BUTTER NO-BAKE COOKIES LAST?
As long as you keep the keto cookies in an airtight container, they will last 1-2 weeks. Or you can freeze them for up to 6 months. Keeping them airtight and away from heat is the most important part of storing the cookies.
No-Bake Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate-Covered Cookies
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/4 teaspoon stevia extract
- pinch salt
- 1/3 cup peanut butter (creamy)
- 1/3 cup sugar-free syrup (or any keto-friendly syrup)
Chocolate To Cover Cookies
- 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips (or 3 oz)
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- Add the coconut flour, almond flour, stevia, and salt to a large bowl and whisk to combine. Stir in the peanut butter and sugar-free syrup. This should result in a firm dough.
- With your hand make a tube form with the dough of about 2 inches wide and 6-7 inches long, using a knife cut slices of about ¼ inch thick. (At this point, you can even shape the dough into whatever shape you'd like for different holidays.)
- Place the cookies in the fridge while you prepare the coating.
- In a small bowl add chocolate chips and coconut oil, microwave in intervals of 30 seconds, stirring every time until chocolate is melted.
- Remove cookies from the fridge and dip each one in the melted chocolate, flip it to cover it completely with chocolate, and with the same spatula take it out carefully and place it back to the baking sheet, repeat the process with the rest of the cookies.
- Once all of the cookies are covered in chocolate, bring them back to the fridge for another 30 minutes to 1 hour or until the chocolate is firm.
