Sweet potato and coconut flour gnocchi with hazelnut and basil pesto.

I worked in the kitchen today and I made the most delicious slice!! It was chocolate and coconut with salted chocolate glaze. I sold every last piece and I was very proud. :)
I will post the recipe for the slice soon.

I finally made gnocchi and boy was it yummy. I will post the recipe for the pesto tonight and then the gnocchi tomorrow.
