No fuss, no muss low carb cookies. Super easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto No Bake Cookies
Sweet, crunchy and portable, these keto no bake cookies are the perfect low carb treat. A quick and easy low carb cookie recipe that is sure to be spouse and kid approved. It doesn’t get much easier that mix, chill, eat. As a child I remember a neighbor always making haystack cookies and it was always such a treat. Sometimes she made them with oatmeal and other times she made them with crunchy chow mein noodles. The chocolate butterscotch chow mein version was always my favorite, and since I only had them on special occasions, it always felt like an extra special treat. I can almost taste them right now.
With this low carb haystack no bake cookie recipe, I used unsweetened desiccated coconut to give it that familiar no bake cookie crunchy texture. If you can’t find unsweetened dessicated coconut, you can buy unsweetened coconut flakes and pulse them in a high powered blender or a food processor to get the desired size.
With fall rapidly approaching, people are already asking for low carb Christmas cookie recipes. Well, in my book, any low carb cookie recipe made around Christmas is a Christmas cookie. 🙂 That being said, here are a few of my favorite keto cookie recipes. Keto Flourless Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies and Low Carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies.
Another great thing about the low carb no bake cookies is that they don’t use any egg like a traditional recipe. That makes them a great dessert option for those with egg allergies or intolerance.
