Butternut Squash Gnocchi

Jump to Recipe

I made this easy 5-ingredient recipe for butternut squash gnocchi 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!

    • Thank you for pointing this out! I didn’t realize the coconut flour was missing from the ingredient list. It should be 3 grams is you follow the recipe. I will update the post!
