Salted Peanut Double Chocolate Cookies

Salted peanuts are a wonderful contrast to the intense double chocolate of the bittersweet chips and cocoa powder in these cookies.  Being on a Keto diet can be a challenge for cookie lovers. These Salted Peanut Double Chocolate Cookies are Keto except for the small amount of sugar in the bittersweet chocolate chips; with a little effort you can locate bittersweet chocolate chips without sugar too. Feel free to make a non-Keto version by replacing the Stevia with granulated sugar.
