No-bake cookies are a perfect treat to make on lazy afternoons or during scorching summer days. They're also quite convenient when you don't have access to an oven. Whatever your reason may be for making cookies that don’t require baking, know that there are plenty of keto no-bake cookies recipes out there. Below you'll find 7 such recipes, all with very few carbs. But first, let's see what no-bake cookies actually are.


What Are No Bake Cookies?

Broadly speaking, no-bake cookies are any cookie-type treats that don’t require baking.

When talking about no-bake cookies, most people think of those classic cookies your grandma probably used to make made with oatmeal, peanut butter, and cacao. These family favorites first emerged in American cookbooks during the Great Depression, and they called for ingredients like peanut butter, margarine, cream cheese, honey, and corn syrup. Another defining feature of these cookies is that they never contain flour or eggs.

Nowadays, however, you'll find many different no-bake cookie recipes. Some were developed for special diets, and there's definitely no shortage of no-bake keto cookie recipes.


Can I Eat No Bake Cookies on Keto?

Yes, you can definitely eat no-bake cookies on keto, providing that you can still stay below your net carb limit for the day. For most people on keto, this means fewer than 10g net carbs per serving (ideally, less than 5g). All types of keto cookies are made with keto-friendly ingredients like coconut flakes, peanut butter, erythritol, and nuts. Keto no-bake cookies can allow you to enjoy a nutritious and healthful treat while still meeting your macros.
