Butternut Squash Gnocchi’s

350 Calories

1.5:1 Ratio, MAD

I made this meal for myself today after finding inspiration from here.  It was absolutely DELICIOUS!  I happen to love butternut squash and I could eat this everyday.  These are baked, you can not boil them or they will fall apart.  The texture is soft and pillow-y, perfect for small kids or transitional foods.  The key to rolling the gnocchi is wet hands.  This dough is on the wet side, if you run your hands under cold water, the dough will not stick to your hands!

Ingredients

62g butternut squash, baked until soft

27g almond flour

15g egg yolk (one large yolk)

3g coconut flour

15g butter

salt/pepper/sprinkle of Herbs de Provence

Directions

Puree the baked butternut squash in a food processor until smooth.

Mix the squash, almond flour, egg yolk, coconut flour and seasonings until well combined. Roll the dough into gnocchi shapes a place on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Lightly press the top of the rolled gnocchi’s with the back of a fork to give them texture.

Bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

Melt the butter in a small pan over low heat.  Let the butter turn slightly brown, this will give it a much richer and deeper flavor.  Pour the butter over the gnocchi’s and serve hot.

      Hope it turns out and he likes it! You can incorporate the butter into the recipe instead of on top if you want.
