"known in advance" public key authentication?

For my application, I need to establish a secure communication
between two peers, and as it seems, TLS is a perfect fit for
A feature of this application is that the public keys of the
peers are effectively “known in advance”, so, while self-signed
(unsigned?) X.509 certificates (or some OpenPGP ones) could be
employed, there's no practical benefit from CC/WoT verification.
Hence, the question is: is there a way to specify the local key
pair and the remote public key to GnuTLS “directly”, just prior
to connecting the remote?
