A low carb, keto, and gluten free cookie recipe inspired by the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich!  These keto peanut butter and jelly thumbprint cookies are sure to be a hit!


  • 1 3/4 cup sugar free peanut butter (I prefer crunchy and used Smucker’s natural)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/3 cup granulated sugar substitute (Swerve, Splenda, Ideal, etc.)(for lowest carbs use erythritol)
  • 1/4 cup sugar free strawberry (or other) preserves


  1. Combine all of the cookie ingredients except for the jelly in a medium sized bowl. Stir well until fully combined.
  2. Roll into twenty 1 inch balls and place on a parchment covered cookie sheet.
  3. Press a well into the center of each cookie with your thumb. Place about 1/2 teaspoon of jelly in each center.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350 degree (F) oven for 11 minutes. Don’t bake too long or they’ll dry out.
