Chewy Keto Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Cookies

Chewy Keto Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Cookies

About a year ago I attempted to make some chewy keto peanut butter cookies. Though some of my recipes came out ok, I didn’t feel that they were quite up to par. Either the cooling effect from the erythritol was too strong or the consistency was off with each batch I attempted.

Thankfully, due to experimenting with another cookie recipe, I finally found a way to fix my problem. Lately, I have added cream cheese to many of my cookie recipes where I am trying to get a soft chewy texture. The extra moisture from the cream cheese was the key to making these chewy keto peanut butter cream cheese cookies taste amazing.

Not only that but they the cream cheese also makes them extra soft and chewy as well. This recipe is essentially the same recipe as my perfect keto nut butter cookie recipe except I have replaced the perfect keto butter with regular peanut butter.

Both recipes taste great and the other recipe even has fewer carbs than this recipe does. However, I wanted to make this one as well because peanut butter can be easier to come by and is much cheaper than Perfect Keto Nut Butter.

Like many of my other recipes, I use a combination of almond and pecan flour in these low-carb peanut butter cookies. Though a bit harder to find, pecan flour actually contains fewer carbs than almond flour. Thankfully, pecan flour is easy to make if you can’t find it at your local grocery store.

All you’ll need are regular pecan pieces and a food processor or high-quality blender. Simply place regular deshelled pecans or pecan pieces through a food processor until it turns into a nice pecan flour. But be aware, if you process for too long your mixture will turn into pecan butter.
