Or roll it into balls for a little portion control cookie bite action…
Let’s discuss the details of this beauty!
Peanut Butter Edible Cookie Dough Ingredients:
Peanut Butter: That rich and creamy all star ingredient that makes us all swoon, peanut butter is the star of the show here. You can go with your favorite creamy peanut butter but just note in order to keep this recipe keto or low-carb, you’ll need to use an unsweetened version.
For those of you who don’t follow a low-carb ketogenic diet, you can use creamy peanut butter that is sweetened if you’d like.
Butter: A key ingredient that both helps mix the dough together and provides that super iconic cookie flavor. Without melted butter, there’s just a little something missing! If you’re dairy-free, you can absolutely use melted coconut oil and still get a delicious result.
Almond Flour: The ingredient that holds it all together in dough form! Almond flour keeps the recipe grain-free and low-carb while helping us form an actual dough.
Sugar-Free Confectioners Sweetener: The sweet portion of the recipe! In order to keep it low-carb, use your favorite brand of sugar-free confectioners sweetener (powdered sugar). It does need to be the powder form or you’ll end up with grainy texture in your dough. If you’re cool with that, feel free to make the swap!
If you aren’t low-carb or keto, you can swap the sugar-free sweetener for regular powdered sugar.
Sea Salt: Super important ingredient! Because we’re using unsalted peanut butter and butter, we need to add a pinch of sea salt to really round out the flavors. If your peanut butter and/or butter does contain salt, you can reduce or omit the sea salt.
Optional Add: Toss in some chocolate chips to make this a combo chocolate chip peanut butter cookie dough situation!
How to Make Peanut Butter Edible Cookie Dough:
This recipe couldn’t be any easier to make! Simply add all of your ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir well until everything is completely combined.
Note: If your peanut butter is very cold, warm it up in the microwave for a little bit until it softens up. The ingredients will need to be warmer than room temperature in order to easily mix them.
Refrigerate the dough until it sets up, about 1 to 2 hours. Once set up, the consistency of the dough is identical to regular cookie dough!
You can eat it as is or form little bites out of it. You can also add chocolate chips if you’d like!
Store any leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer in a sealed container or bag.
That’s it! Your on demand cookie dough to really make that sweet tooth satisfied!

Wondering if coconut flour would work instead. Thoughts?

Hi Jeremy! You can definitely use coconut flour to make edible cookie dough, but I'm not sure the amount you would use as I haven't tried it. Coconut flour absorbs about four times more liquid than almond flour, so I would imagine you would use much less. I would start with 1/3 cup and add more from there as needed to get the consistency you're looking for :) Let me know how it turns out! xo

Hello-should the butter in this recipe be room temperature or melted? Can't wait to try these!

My apologies for the confusion! The butter should be melted. I made a note of that in the recipe. Thanks for catching this!! xoxo :D
