PREP TIME20 minutesCOOK TIME5 minutesTOTAL TIME25 minutes


  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Cup (125g) Cream Cheese
  • 2,5 TBsp (20g) Guar Gum
  • 1 TBsp (10g) Coconut Flour


  1. Prepare all of the ingredients for a quick and easy assembly.
  2. Whisk a whole egg in a bowl, you are planning to make your dough.
  3. Once your egg is whisked, add cream cheese and salt and mix it fully until all is combined into one smooth consistency. Have a look at the video for easier visual instructions.
  4. Add coconut flour and whisk it again fully until combined.
  5. Before you add Guar Gum, remember, that the dough is going to thicken very fast at this stage.
  6. Take one of the spatula and with your hand mix the guar gum into the dough until fully combined. Let it sit for approximately 10-15 minutes.
  7. On a silicone mat, work out the dough once again with your hands until it forms one whole piece.
  8. Separate with a knife or a cake scrapper into 4 parts.
  9. Take one part and roll it into a thin log. Using your knife or cake scraper, cut identical pieces out of the log and continue until all 4 parts of the dough are cut.
  10. Using either your hands or Gnocchi wooden Board, shape gnocchi as you wish.
  11. Once you have all shaped into Gnocchi, place them into boiling water, where you have sprinkled a bit of oil. This will prevent the Gnocchi from sticking together once ready.
  12. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, depending on the size and shape.
    nth Step. Enjoy
  13. Take it out of the water and serve it straight with your preferred sauce.


Cooking – after cooking our Keto Gnocchi several times, I concluded, 5 minutes number works the best. Depending on your size you might have to adjust it a minute up or down.

Oil – adding few drops of oil into the boiling water, will prevent them from sticking
