Cheesy Keto Gnocchi with Fathead Dough

Cheesy Keto Gnocchi with Fathead Dough. A Gnocchi made from fathead dough can easily satisfy your cravings for high carb pasta, who would suggest these small pillows.

Into the dough, we added a small number of ground peanuts and made them way much tastier.

Fathead dough can help you to awake the child you hide deep inside and it can be such fun. To every child, bring the dough and you’ll see the smile on their face.
For the first time on our menu we have made this small keto gnocchi. By their texture and flavor, we can tell you we are so surprised.

Did we mention that with more shredded cheese, they are topped and for TEN extra minutes, baked in the oven? The most interesting part is at the very end.

To make them soft, you cook them first then to get the most of the flavor, bake in the oven. On top of the dish, melted cheese is like the cherry.
Some of the suggestions for the seasonings are dried basil, parsley, and oregano you will want to try with our Keto gnocchi. Combine these three/use only one of them. The choice is yours.
Your lunch/dinner idea is served!
Combine mozzarella cheese and butter in the (medium-size)microwave-safe bowl. In a double boiler, you can do this if you like. Microwave for THIRTY seconds. Stir and microwave for TEN seconds more, if needed. Until it gets smooth, stir the mixture again.
Add in egg, salt, peanut flour/or coconut flour, and almond flour. With a spatula, mix well all ingredients then with your hands, knead the dough. These can take a few minutes. Everything should well combined.
Into FOUR small parts or THREE bigger, divide the big bowl. Roll each part and into the size you like, cut.
Gnocchi is going to be bite-sized, so we make them thinner.
To a boil, bring a pot of salted water.
To the water, add the gnocchi and until they are soft, boil for TWO minutes.
Meanwhile, to 375F, preheat the oven. On a parchment paper, place them.
With basil and shredded gouda, top each gnocchi and for TEN minutes, bake in the oven.
