No Bake Keto Cookies

These no-bake keto cookies are easy to make, with very little cooking required. They taste like chocolate and peanut butter and will satisfy your sweet tooth while still being low carb and keto-friendly.

I recently made some classic no-bake cookies which made me want to make a keto version. Like the classic version, these cookies are chocolatey, peanut buttery and a little bit chewy.

What I love about these keto no bake cookies is that very little cooking is required. All of the necessary cooking can be done with a stove or a microwave.

I love to keep these cookies in the freezer for an easy snack when I’m craving a sweet treat. It’s an easy keto dessert!


  • Unsalted butter
  • Unsweetened natural creamy peanut butter
  • Powdered erythritol
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut

Substitutions: If you can’t have peanut butter you can use another unsweetened natural nut butter like almond butter or cashew butter. I’m not sure how sunflower seed butter would work in this recipe, so if you try it please let me know how it went!

Sweetener to Use for No Bake Keto Cookies

The recipe uses powdered erythritol. You do not want to use a granular sweetener because it will not melt into the cookie batter. A powdered sweetener will melt when it is heated with the butter.

You can also use a concentrated liquid sweetener like stevia but adding too much liquid can make the batter too thin.

Recipe Steps

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place the butter, peanut butter, and powdered erythritol in a microwave-safe bowl. Warm them in 30 second intervals and whisk between each interval until the mixture is smooth.

Whisk in the cocoa powder and then add the coconut.

Scoop the batter onto the prepared baking sheet. Space the scoops about two inches apart.

Use the bake of a spoon to flatten each cookie scoop so it’s 1/4″ thick.

Freeze the cookies for 30 minutes or until firm.

No Bake Keto Cookie Texture

Since these are not traditional cookies, they won’t taste quite like a regular cookie either. The cookie batter is very wet and needs to stay frozen.

You can eat these straight from the freezer and they taste similar to eating frozen Girl Scout Samoas cookies: firm on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside.

If you prefer a softer cookie, let the cookies defrost for a few minutes at room temperature. Do not let the cookies defrost too long because they will turn melty again.

Storing No Bake Keto Cookies

Make sure to store the cookies in the freezer until they are ready to be eaten. You can store them in an airtight container or freezer Ziploc bags and the cookies will keep for several months.

  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened natural creamy peanut butter
  • 5 tbsp powdered erythritol
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • In a large microwave-safe mixing bowl, add butter, peanut butter and powdered erythritol. Microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring with a whisk in between, until everything is evenly mixed and smooth. The butter should be completely melted and mixed in and the sugar should also be melted and blended into the batter.
  • Add in cocoa powder and whisk until batter is smooth.
  • Add in coconut. Mix and stir with a spatula until evenly combined.
  • Using a 1.5 tbsp cookie scoop, scoop batter and place onto prepared cookie sheet, spacing cookies about 2 inches apart.
  • Use the back of a spoon to flatten the cookie batter until it is about 1/4 inch thick and looks like a finished cookie.
  • Freeze cookies for about 30 minutes or until firm. Enjoy straight out of the freezer. Keep uneaten cookies stored in the freezer until ready to eat.


  • Recipe adapted from Keto Connect
  • Cookies need to remain in the freezer. Once defrosted, the chocolate will be melty.
  • These cookies are not overly sweet. You can taste the batter after adding the cocoa powder and if you prefer sweeter, you can add a few drops of liquid stevia.

  1. Show me more of Keto RECIPES please.
    Thank God ?

  2. I wish more sites would give recipes that can be made in an apartment refrigerator freezer. Somehow we don’t have giant deep freezes.

  3. I made a double batch, froze a bag of them, and lost them in the deep freezer! 🙁 I found them about 6 months later. They had dried out in the freezer! They were not freezer burned, but they had dried out and were the consistency of real no-bakes. I plan to do this on purpose in the future. I will just date the bags.

  4. I didn’t use powdered sweetener (could only find granular) but they were still really good!
