3 Ingredient Sweet Potato Gnocchi

So really you kind of just need two ingredients for these, especially if they’re for your baby. Just sweet potatoes and flour! Now if they’re for you, add a little salt to the mix. We didn’t add any salt to Waylen’s food until he hit the year mark (and really still barely do now.)


  • 2.5 c. Flour
  • 2 large Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 t. Salt (optional)


  1. Roast sweet potatoes. I did mine for 50 minutes at 410.
  2. Once cooled, mash then mix in flour and salt.
  3. Knead dough until it forms a smooth soft ball. Do not over work. Dough should be pillowy.
  4. Divide into fourths. (I actually ended up dividing it into 8ths so it was easier to handle.
  5. Roll dough sections out into long strands about 1/2 in. thick.
  6. Cut into 1 inch pieces and then roll over fork and pinch to create shape
  7. Cook in bowling water. Once they float they’re done! (Usually about 5 minutes)

I typically immediately make 1/3 of the batch for Waylen and I and then freeze the rest! Also — sorry this batch isn’t the prettiest ha. That’s what happens when you have a one year old running around while you’re making them.
