Apple Galette

This recipe for our gluten-free Apple Galette is just perfect for these cold wintry nights (depending on where you live, of course!)

A galette is a rustic, free form pie, so no special baking skills are required. Simply roll out the dough and fold it up and around the fruit center, pleating the edges as you go, creating a random, ruffled shape. That’s the beauty of a galette – anyone can make it.

Granny Smith apples are an excellent choice for your galette filling, because they are very low in sugar. Lightly sweetened with stevia, the delicious tartness of the apple shines through. Because the apple slices are briefly sautéed before adding to the crust, the galette bakes quickly and evenly. A hint of sweet cinnamon dusted over the warn baked apple filling is the perfect finishing touch.

This beautiful Apple Galette is a wonderful finale for a holiday meal, or indeed at any time of year. Feel free to throw in a handful of blueberries or cranberries for some extra cheer.

Ingredients for Apple Mixture
  • 2 tablespoons of oil, olive or coconut
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon powdered stevia
Ingredients for Dough
  • 5 tablespoons (or more as needed) cold water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup millet flour
  • 1/2 cup quinoa flour
  • 2 teaspoons psyllium husk powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • Cinnamon
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the apple slices and sprinkle over with lemon juice and powdered stevia. Sauté the apples, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat, set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together one egg and one tablespoon of water, set aside.

  3. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flours, psyllium husk powder and salt and pulse a few times to combine. Add the olive oil and pulse the mixture until it resembles crumbs. Add the other egg and pulse until just combined. Add 4 tablespoons of cold water, or more as needed, one at a time and pulse until the dough forms a ball.

  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F ( 200 degrees C).
  5. Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper dusted with a bit of one of the flours. Roll the dough into a 14 to 15 inch round. Remove the top layer of parchment paper, then lift the bottom layer of parchment paper and the dough round onto a rimmed baking sheet.
  6. Spread the apple mixture on top of the dough round, leaving about a two inch border. Fold the border edge of the dough over the apples, pleating as you go. Brush the crust with the egg and water mixture.
  7. Bake until the galette is golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes. Cool, then serve with a dusting of cinnamon.

    This recipe is so delicious and easy to make. I used buckwheat, sorghum, and teff flour since that’s what I had, and added blueberries the second time I tried it. I also added cinnamon to the dough and topped it with chopped walnuts. Definitely a recipe to save for future.
