Growing up, my grandma used to make dumplings as a special treat. Her old German recipe, she always said they were the best with day old potatoes. Every time I have sweet potatoes left over I wonder if they would make good dumplings. So I finally took the plunge and made some. I had to make them gluten free of course. I am so happy I did! These have quickly become a staple in our rotation. The are so versatile, you can eat them with many different sauces or use them in soup! My Grandma would be proud that I have re-created her classic dumplings and made them healthier sweet potato german dumplings! Miss you Grannie XOXO

  • Serve right away, or cover to keep them warm
  • Top with butter or gravy and fresh herbs
  • These can also be used as dumplings in soups. I even freeze them in an airtight bag and use them in soups later on! I use THIS to make them airtight

  1. This sounds delicious but the cassava flour has a ton of carbs. I try to stick with coconut or almond. Do you think either of those will work or do I need to bite the bullet and try cassava?

    1. I think almond and coconut would make a super dense dumpling. Coconut would be better but not as good as cassava. The cassava flour is awesome. Give it a go 🙂

      1. Coconut flour disintegrates in the boiling water. I tried it.

        I used the all-purpose gluten free flour and it worked great, actually. But.. coconut… dumpling disaster of 2016.

  2. Aww, my German grandmother makes these too! I think, if I have it spelled right, she calls it Griessnockerl and it’s dumplings in a brothy soup. Mmmm, good memories!! Thanks for sharing with us.

  3. Hello Kate, thank you very much for your recipes. A generale request: would it be possible to include in the printing/pdf downloading version of them also the comments? Often in there I find very useful additional tips.
