Is Peanut Butter something you always have in the house? I never liked peanut butter sandwiches, but I love the creaminess and the flavor natural peanut butter adds to sauces and salad dressings, and of course it’s great for cookies! So here’s a collection of Keto Recipes with Peanut Butter, and a shout-out for the low-sugar peanut butter that’s the one I always buy! If you’re a fellow peanut butter fan who always has it on hand, I hope you find something here that you’d like to try!
What Low-Sugar Peanut Butter do I Recommend?
I loved this Adams 100% Natural Peanut Butter (affiliate link) from the first time I tried it. Now the chunky and smooth varieties are something I always have in my fridge. I use chunky the most, but I buy Adams No-Stir Creamy Peanut Butter (affiliate link) to use in sauces!
What to do if Natural Peanut Butter has Separated:
When you bring natural peanut butter home from the store it will be likely be separated with a layer of oil on top. I buy the big jars, and when I’m ready to start on a new jar from the pantry, I put the peanut butter and oil into my food processor and pulse until the oil is completely combined. It’s a bit of a messy job, but completely effective. Keep natural peanut butter in the fridge once it’s been opened.
Favorite Keto Recipes Using Peanut Butter:
Chicken with Peanut Sauce has been a favorite of mine for years, and this recipe recently got new photos!
I’d guess this Pork Roast with Spicy Peanut Sauce might be the most popular peanut butter recipe on the blog, and you can make it in the slow cooker or the Instant Pot!
Flourless, Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies are one of my favorite cookies, and if you’ve got peanut butter, sweetener, and an egg you can probably make these cookies!
West African Chicken Stew is a delicious and quick dinner idea that uses leftover rotisserie chicken in a delightful peanut sauce!
Chicken Broccoli Salad with a tasty peanut butter dressing does have some carbs, but it’s also high in fiber, and this is so tasty!
Peanut Butter Tofu with Sriracha is great for a meatless dinner and I use Monkfruit Sweetener which makes this super low in carbs! This recipe has been super popular through the years.
Ground Beef Zucchini Noodles with Peanut Sauce are a tasty dinner idea with spicy ground beef served over zucchini noodles, topped with a peanut butter and tahini sauce. And you can make this sauce with all peanut butter if you don’t have Tahini Sauce (affiliate link).
Flourless Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies are another favorite sugar-free cookies that uses peanut butter!
Cabbage Bowl with Tofu and Peanut Sauce is another meatless dish with peanut butter that’s delicious and easy to make! This does have some carbs, but check the net carbs and remember it’s an entire meal.
And this Red Cabbage and Chicken Asian Salad is one of my favorite salads with red cabbage and you can use sliced green onion in the peanut buttery dressing if you’re not a cilantro fan!

Haven’t seen that one but I will check it out.
i love adams too! i always get the creamy version. It's so good! =D
Phyllis, sounds interesting. I just bought some coconut oil to try in baking.
For a really good treat, mix peanut butter with Nutiva Coconut oil. Don't knock it till you try it!ts really good!
Shirley it definitely seems natural to me!
Wow, I don't think you could get much more real that that. Only peanuts in the unsalted varieties with a little sea salt in the others. I'll definitely look for this one, Kalyn. Thanks!
Hope you have fun trying some of the peanut butter recipes!
Great choice, Kalyn. I love this peanut butter. I've been using it for many years. My youngest son grew up on peanut butter and banana sandwiches, so I didn't want any sugar or salt in his peanut butter and this one sure fit the bill. I always have a jar in my fridge in case he drops in. I'm also going to try some of the recipes you've posted using peanut butter. They sound delicious.
Joanne, the other types of peanut butter now taste "too sweet" to me.
Terri, never tried making peanut butter but it sounds fun!
Worker Bee, this peanut butter contains just peanuts and a very tiny amount of salt, so I'd say that's pretty natural.
Ken, thanks. Never seen that around here.
That is a great peanut butter, I love it too! I don't know what the "natural" part is supposed to mean though… in the food industry it does not really mean anything. BUT I do go for Adam's organic line, it is great! Just a heads up for folks in case they don't know… "Natural" does not mean organic. Love your blog Kalyn!
Oh I love PB&J, always have and always will. Unfortunately it's been some time since I've had one…sigh. I actually make my own peanut butter. I buy roasted salted peanuts, throw them into the food processor and add a spoonful of nut oil and process to my liking. No sugar added! And it's so much cheaper too!
I admit I used to be a Skippy lover when I was a kid…but now that I've gone the natural route, anything else tastes awful to me!
I'm with you, please no sugar in my peanut butter! And I never liked pb&j sandwiches either – didn't even like to look at a jar of jelly while I ate peanut butter! Now one of my favorite snacks (or breakfasts) is fresh apple chunks dipped in peanut butter.
Annalise, that's definitely how I feel since I've been using it. I am a complete fan!
I've been an Adam's peanut butter gal all my life and I won't eat anything else. Love it!
