Not only for you, but you will want to make this peanut-buttery shortbread cookies for your whole family and loved ones. Just like the original recipe for shortbread cookies, this Keto version requires few ingredients and a minimum of baking time. Instead of regular all-purpose flour, I found that coconut flour works perfectly as a substitute.
Just like the original recipe, these cookies include chocolate coating, but with 99% of cocoa chocolate so you will make them as Kato as possible. Instead of sugar, I have used erythritol which is basically sugar that is allowed in the Keto Diet.
Peanut butter is a replacement for regular butter, so you will feel peanut buttery aroma that goes really well with a chocolate coating at the end. Just match made in heaven.
Also, they are perfect for your morning cup of coffee, to have as a snack in the middle of the day or just as a dessert with a strong cup of tea.
