Low Carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies


Print Friendly and PDF

Chocolate and peanut butter pretty much belong together in my opinion. I've had so many different varieties of low carb chocolate chip cookies over the years that I thought it'd be fun to experiment with low carb chocolate peanut butter chip cookies. YUM! These are addictive and slightly dangerous. The recipe made 31 average-sized cookies. (You'll only see 30 pictured...bet you can guess where the missing one went 😂). They freeze super well, and I love always having cookies on hand!

Ingredients:

Peanut Butter Layer
1/2 cup sugar free peanut butter
4 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered Swerve
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp monk fruit juice concentrate

Chocolate Layer
4 tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup KNOW Foods Chocolate Chips
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp monk fruit juice concentrate

Cookies
4 tbsp salted butter, softened
1/2 cup cup granulated Swerve
2 tbsp brown Swerve or golden Lakanto
1.5 cups almond flour
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg

Instructions:

1) Mix together all peanut butter ingredients. 

2) On wax paper, spread out peanut butter mix into a thin, even layer. 

3) Put in the freezer.

4) Once frozen, begin to make chocolate layer. Start by pouring 4 tbsp melted butter over the KNOW Foods Chocolate Chips in a microwavable dish.

5) Microwave for 15 seconds and then stir. Repeat until chocolate chips are fully melted.

6) Add in vanilla and monk fruit.

7) Remove peanut butter layer from freezer and evenly spread the chocolate layer over it.

8) Return to freezer until chocolate layer is frozen.

9) Once frozen, chops up the giant chocolate peanut butter square into small chunks.

10) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

11) Cream together butter and sweeteners. Then add in the rest of the cookie ingredients. Stir well.

12) Gently stir in the chocolate peanut butter chips.

13) Roll dough into slightly flattened balls and place on cookie sheet. (Warning: these spread a lot more than the average low carb cookie, so make sure to leave adequate space between cookie dough balls). 

14) Bake for about 18 minutes or until done.

15) Remove cookies from oven and allow them to cool. They'll firm up some as they cool.

16) Enjoy!
