Keto Gnocchi

After I have posted my super Easy Homemade Keto Gnocchi for the first time, I could not believe how many people have tried and made them. The emails and messages I got made my every day extra special and filled me with so much drive to invent even more recipes you would love. 

Shapes of Homemade Keto Gnocchi

Having been able to make various shapes of Gnocchi with this recipe, I have followed with our Spinach Gnocchi as well as Bacon and Cream Gnocchi Recipe. Well, we all need bacon in our life.

And then I got one more idea

Keto Gnocchi Tomato Basil

A perfectly craved Keto Dinner for your Italian evening with the flavors of Basil Pesto, Garlic, and Fresh Cherry Tomatoes. Sprinkled with fresh basil leaves at the end, just made our evening extra special. We have enjoyed our dinner with our favorite Italian music and glass of wine and talked about all of the trips we have made. 

How fabulous one evening can be if you put just a tiny bit of effort into it?

Fusilli Pasta Shape

For this recipe, I have decided to go with the Fusilli or Spirelli shape for our Gnocchi as this beautiful shape catches the garlic together with Basil Pesto the most. 

But as you see in our Keto Gnocchi post, you can experience basic Gnocchi shape or Orechiette as well.

Because we are having an Italian evening here, pesto is a must in our recipe. You can try making them with our Wild Garlic Pesto if the season allows or you can get hold of it, but frankly, Basil is one Herb, that gives you this special Italian feel.  

And as tomatoes are involved, Basil Pesto is a must. 

Keto Pasta Recipes

We love Gnocchi and the combination of the Italian flavors was just unforgettable.

If you already have made our Gnocchi Recipe a few times this week and looking for a bit of a change, you can easily swap Gnocchi for any of our Keto Pasta Alternatives and Variations you prefer. 

I would personally suggest Keto Egg Noodles or Fiber Noodles as a replacement, but we have got much more options.

Coconut Flour Gnocchi

Our Gnocchi is made with Coconut flour only as this gives you not only perfect nutrition, but they are super easy to roll and shape.

Can you taste Coconut in Keto Gnocchi?


This is the question, I have gotten from quite a few people. 
I can honestly say, that even if you are not fond of coconut flour or its taste, there is not a single trace you will taste. If I would not tell you what are they made of, you will never realize Coconuts are involved. 

For some reason, by combining all of the ingredients together, the flavor of coconuts is completed diminished.

Can you have Gnocchi on Keto?

Using our recipe means, you can not only have Gnocchi on Keto but after your first bite, you will never go back to real ones.
The taste of a real Gnocchi di Patate will immediately convince you that this is the best recipe you have ever eaten.
And the taste of real potatoes inside will make them popular even with your non-keto family and friends.  

What to serve with Gnocchi?

Gnocchi is so versatile and can be used with various sauces, meats or used as Keto Noodles or Pasta replacements

Pick one of my suggestions:

Baked Gnocchi
Chicken Gnocchi
Cheese Gnocchi
Gnocchi with Bacon and Cream
Easy Ricotta Gnocchi
Keto Gnocchi with fresh Spinach Sauce
Chicken Gnocchi Soup

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO MAKE ITALIAN KETO GNOCCHI

First Step: Keto Gnocchi

If you already have your Keto Gnocchi prepared, skip to step 4.

Mixing all of the ingredients for Keto Gnocchi, start preparing the dough.

If you have not made them before, it is better to have a look at the post I have written, where the whole video and steps are attached for easier understanding. 

Once your dough is fully combined, separate it into four pieces and roll each into a thin log. 

With your cake scraper or a knife, cut small identical pieces out of the log until you’re finished with all of the dough.

Second Step: Shape Fusilli

Using the wooden gnocchi board, start shaping your fusilli. For a better understanding look at the video with step-by-step instructions.

You can prepare your gnocchi a day or two in advance and have them stored in the refrigerator.

Third Step: How to cook Gnocchi

Once you have your gnocchi prepared in the shape of a fusilli, take them out of the fridge and place them into the salty boiling water where you have added 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. 

Olive oil helps greatly in our homemade Gnocchi not sticking to each other.

Cook for approximately five minutes and using your sieve, take them out of the boiling water as you normally would with any pasta.

Fourth Step: Ingredients

Tips and Tricks

  • Serving size – The whole recipe is calculated into three servings. Bear in mind that even if the portion looks too small, gnocchi are extremely filling and you might not be able to finish the whole dish.
  • Gnocchi – You can prepare your gnocchi a day or two in advance and have them stored in the refrigerator.

How do you store Keto Gnocchi?

You can store our keto gnocchi in a glass container in the refrigerator for approximately 3 to 4 days.

I would suggest storing gnocchi separately and make the preferred sauce fresh on that day.

Can You Freeze Keto Gnocchi?

You can certainly freeze our keto gnocchi as you would freeze normal french fries or gnocchi. 

Once you shape your gnocchi place them into a Ziploc bag and freeze.

Whenever you’re ready to use them for your cooking, take them out of the freezer the night before and let them thaw naturally.

Cook them only after they are unfrozen.
