The BEST Keto Peanut Butter Cookies

The BEST Keto Peanut Butter Cookies


Let them rest after coming out of the oven. 

This is from one of my recipe testers: “This will be my go-to PB cookie from this day forward!! Delicious!! 

I was worried because warm out of the oven they were falling apart. I put them in the fridge and when cooked completely were perfect!!  It was so nice to have a PB cookie! My mom made them for us as kids ❤️

And when my son, Collin asks for a second or third, you know it’s good!

Measure the butter!

I made the mistake (which you can see on my YouTube video) of not measuring the butter. I ended up with flat cookies that tasted great, but obviously had too much butter (yes, too much butter is a thing:)


To make my peanut butter cookies, I used Equip Prime Peanut Butter Protein!

Using peanut butter protein powder in my cookie recipe helped to lower the fat and calories a lot while still providing a delicious peanut-buttery flavor!

I am also always looking for ways to add more protein and less fat to my recipes. Equip Prime Protein is perfect for accomplishing such a goal!

Equip is so generous, they are offering 15% off when you use code MARIA!

Keto is great for so many reasons! It helps lower blood pressure, it helps reverse insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes, it helps stop migraines, it helps with ADHD and so much more. But lets be honest, 99% of people try keto because they heard it can help them lose weight. Many times people try keto and they are quickly frustrated because they are not seeing the results they thought they would.

Why is that? Well, they are eating way to much fat and calories. Yep. Sorry to tell you, calories do matter. Biology still matters even on a ketogenic diet.

“Hi Maria! I thank you for doing what you do. You have played a part in saving my son.

My 6 year old started having non febrile seizures in 2021.

The Lord brought a nutritionist into my life and recommended you.

I followed your advice and he stopped having seizures!

Slowly over the course of 22 months I have started reintroduced foods to see if he could handle them.

This past Tuesday I reintroduced GLUTEN. The next day he had his first grand mal seizure in 22 months!

It’s clear to me that health comes from clean unaltered food. I will never give him gluten again.

But wanted to say thank you. I had 4 neurologist specialists tell me that seizures are not food related. My thorough record keeping proves otherwise.

I’m grateful for you!” Jess

    Hi Maria. Thank you once again for another masterpiece recipe. Quick question: For the longest time I’ve stayed away from anything made from peanuts or peanut butter since they’re technically legumes & I’ve stayed away from grains & legumes. But I LOVE peanuts, peanut butter etc. Natural of course… are peanut & peanut butter actually not that inflammatory? I truly appreciate all you do! ❤

  • Mirella Torsiello says:

    Hi Maria,

    Can you use something else besides peanut butter? I am allergic to peanuts? Can this be done with chocolate Prime and almond butter?

  • Kristen says:

    I have a problem with the Prime Equip powders making things too sweet for me and then the aftertaste is unpleasant since they only use stevia. Suggestions? I don’t even need to add any extra sweetener and things come out way too sweet. I was wondering why no one else has had this problem.
    Additionally, the PB powder has acacia fiber in it and I thought we should try and avoid fibers.

    • Donna Kizuk says:

      I sometimes find things too sweet as well, then I add half unsweetened and half flavored protein powder.

      • Kristen says:

        Thank you! Glad I’m not the only one. Does Equip have an unflavored protein powder or do you just use egg white protein powder or whey?

  • Jan says:

    I loved these cookies but they were very flat and I did measure everything. Has anyone tried adding an egg?

  • Marydee says:

    Has anyone tried chocolate Prime Protein powder? I don’t have the peanut butter Prim Protein, but have the chocolate.
