This is my second keto friendly dessert recipe to share and I’m really excited for you to try it.  I was thrilled when I only used one bowl to mix everything and it only has 4 ingredients. (Score!!)

Technically the vanilla extract is optional, but I decided to add it to the cookies to enhance the flavor.

  • If you and your friends are on a ketogenic diet, you can bake several batches of keto peanut butter cookies and have a keto cookie party! Sounds fun!
