This 2 Ingredient Pumpkin Gnocchi is a quick and easy recipe to impress! All you need is one bowl, a little bit elbow grease to knead a dough and fork to shape (and even that’s optional!). You can serve this gnocchi with sauce of choice, or cook up with simple herbs and evoo. It’s vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free, oil free and nut free!
What’s in this 2 Ingredient Pumpkin Gnocchi?
Gluten free oat flour
That’s it! Super simple to make. If you’d like to spice it up, you can absolutely sprinkle in a little nutmeg and cinnamon for flavour. That is, if you don’t mind it becoming a 4 ingredient recipe 😉
Secrets to successful gnocchi
For best results, I’d recommend using room temperature pumpkin purée. If you’re using homemade pumpkin purée, just be mindful that texture might vary slightly. For example, if your purée is a little less moist, you’ll want to use less flour. My suggestion is to start with less and add more flour as you go. Once you add too much, you can’t go back!
You’ll also want to avoid kneading too much. Once everything is incorporated evenly, let it be! Too much handling can impact the final texture as well.
If you prefer to use different flour, I’d say you should start with less and add more as you go. I think buckwheat flour, cassava flour and regular flour would work just fine, but wouldn’t recommend other substitutes.

In large mixing bowl, sift 1 cup of the oat flour to remove any clumps. Add pumpkin purée and begin to mix using a spoon, then move onto mixing with your hands until a dough forms. Slowly add more flour as needed until you reach a workable dough.
Divide the dough into 4 pieces, then roll out into long snake like shapes. Cut into pieces (this will be the size of your gnocchi pieces) and if desired, press and roll off the back of a fork to add ridges.
To cook, bring a large pot of water to a boil and once boiling, gently add gnocchi. Let cook for 4-5 minutes. They are ready to eat once they float to the top. Remove from the pot using a slotted spoon and enjoy with sauce of choice.
Preferably use pumpkin purée with no added ingredients. Also be sure not to use pumpkin pie mix by accident!
