✔️ If you are using a regular unbranded Erythritol powder then go for ½ cup, and if you have a branded sweetener such as Swerve or Monk Fruit then 1/3 cup works fine. If you really have a tingling SWEET TOOTH (like me!), then you can add up to half a cup of branded sweetener.
✔️ You can store these keto peanut butter cookies in an air-tight container or a zip lock bag for up to 5 days.
✔️ Cooling down is very important to get rid of the crumbly texture. They will be super SOFT when out of the oven and might seem undercooked. But trust me they will harden and turn in to the PERFECT keto peanut butter cookies! They need a sufficient amount of cooling time to get the desired texture.
✔️ For those with a sweet tooth, add some Lily’s sugar-free chocolate chips – either milk chocolate or dark chocolate.
✔️ Sprinkling the salt will really ENHANCE the taste of your keto peanut butter cookies, do not miss this step.

Depending on your selection of peanut butter, sometimes the cookie can be gooey or crumbling dry.
I recommend using unsweetened all natural peanut butter.
