Perfect Keto Nut Butter Cream Cheese Cookies

Perfect Keto Nut Butter Cream Cheese Cookies

These Perfect Keto Nut Butter cream cheese cookies are chewy and delicious! The nut butter and cream cheese is a perfect combo to help these cookies stay soft and moist. I love using cream cheese in my keto cookie recipes because I’ve found that they come out much moister than many of my other keto cookie recipes.

I decided to use perfect keto nut butter instead of almond butter because it contains fewer net carbs than any almond butter I could find. For example, Justin’s almond butter contains 3 net carbs per Tbsp compared to 2 net carbs for Perfect Keto. This may not seem like much, but when you are working with 25 or fewer net carbs per day, just a few can make a world of difference.

That said, you can use almond or any other nut butter as well. However, there will be a difference in nutrition. In the same way, I have also chosen to mix in pecan flour along with my almond flour in this recipe. I like to use pecan flour in my recipes because it also contains fewer net carbs than almond flour. Though it might be hard to find, it is relatively easy to make.

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.
