Are these cookie keto? Yesss!, they are but you wouldn’t know it just by tasting them. They were a clear winner among lovers of peanut butter and fans of cookies: the crumbly texture comes naturally from the almond flour. The coconut flour marries into the mix and heightens the nuttiness even more.
With a sprinkle of salt and crushed, naturally-sweet toasted pecans, these are undeniably the best keto cookies around.
Keto Peanut Butter Pecan Cookies
- 4 tbsp. butter, softened
- 65 g keto-friendly sweetener
- 120 g natural unsweetened peanut butter
- 1 large egg yolk
- 50 g almond flour
- 1 tbsp. coconut flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt, plus more for sprinkling
- 2 tbsp. finely chopped pecans, for topping
Preheat oven to 180°C (160ºC fan) and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, using a whisk or hand mixer, cream together butter and keto-friendly sweetener until light and fluffy. Add in peanut butter and whisk until completely incorporated. Whisk in yolk until fully combined. Fold in almond flour, coconut flour, and salt and mix until dough slightly stiffens.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared tray about 2.5-cm apart. Sprinkle cookies with more salt and pecans.
Bake until bottoms are deeply golden, about 11 minutes.
Cool completely before serving.
