What Is Galette?

How to pronounce galette: The first question I asked about this dessert was, “How do you pronounce galette?” Google was a big help on that one. It’s simple though, “guh-let”. Okay, now that we have the pronunciation out of the way, we can get into what this heavenly dessert actually is and WHY YOU NEED IT IN YOUR LIFE!

Unlike my more straightforward recipes such as my 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Protein Granola and my Healthy Fudge Brownie In A Mug, this galette is a little more fancy. Spoon University says it best, “A galette, more specifically the galette des rois, is one of the most beloved dishes in the French cuisine. This sacred food is one of the most popular types of galettes and is composed of a delicate puff pastry dough with a small charm, or fève, hidden inside. The center of the dessert is filled with frangipane, a cream made from sweet almonds, butter, eggs, and sugar.”

For our healthy gallete, we don’t use the traditional unhealthy ingredients like processed white flour, granulated white sugar, or regular butter. We are using all good for you ingredients! No refined sugar or flour and it’s completely gluten-free! Can’t wait for you to see what we use!

Galette Des Rois

According to Frenchasyoulikeit.com, galette’s have been served in France since the 14th century. There are two main types of galette des rois: In northern France it is more of a puff pastry stuffed with a thick almond paste called frangipane. In the south of France the galette is a brioche-style cake covered with candied fruit.

Well folks, this recipe takes the best of both French types of galette. This gluten-free galette recipe has a thick almost puff pastry like crust, a smooth almond frangipane filling, and a mountain of fresh berries in the middle.

How to Make A Gluten-Free Galette

This gluten-free vegan galette recipe is so simple to whip together on a hot summer day! There are three main components to this healthy dessert:

  1. Flaky Gluten-Free Crust: This gluten-free pie crust is literally a DREAM! It is extremely flaky and holds its shape so nicely. You’ll need oat flour, tapioca flour (or cornstarch), grass-fed or vegan butter, maple syrup, yogurt, vanilla, and baking powder!
  1. Frangipane: The frangipane is what makes this berry galette a true knock out of a dessert! All you need is some almond flour, vanilla extract, coconut sugar and a flax egg (or regular egg). 
  1. Berry Filling: The berry filling is so versatile. I used a combination of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. You can use whatever berry combination suits your fancy! The star of the show in this filling though, is the lemon zest. It compliments the tart berries so perfectly.

How to Cook Gluten-free Vegan Galettes

In almost all of my recipes (healthy oreos, homemade dunkaroos, mini chocolate pies etc.) I always bake everything at 350 F. This berry galette is the exception! We bake this healthy berry galette at 400 F. in order for the berries to bubble and for the crust to get nice and golden brown! I can’t wait for you to smell your house when this berry galette is in the oven!

This Gluten-Free Berry Galette recipe is easy and tastes out of this world! I love how you don’t need a pie pan, and you get all the tastes and textures of an actual pie. This healthy dessert recipe is perfect for using all those summer berries! Vegan option!

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes

Ingredients

For the Gluten-Free Pastry

  • 8 Tbs (1 Stick) Softened Salted/Unsalted Grass Fed Butter (can sub Vegan Butter)
  • 2 Tbs Honey (or Pure Maple Syrup)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ Cup Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt or Yogurt of Choice
  • ¼ Cup Tapioca Flour or Arrowroot Flour (or 2 Tbs Cornstarch: See Note 1)
  • 2 Cups Oat Flour (I make my own using rolled oats)
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • Opt: 1-2 tsp milk or water if needed (See Note 2)

For the Berry Filling

  • 2½ Cups Mixed Berries (I used a combo of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries & raspberries)
  • 2 Tbs Tapioca Flour or Arrowroot Flour (or 1 Tbs Cornstarch)
  • 1 Tbs Coconut Sugar (or granulated sweetener of choice)
  • Zest from 1 Small Lemon (Orange Zest may also work)

For the Frangipane

Optional Topping

  • ½ Tbs Almond Milk (or milk of choice)
  • Sprinkle Coconut Sugar - about ½ tsp (or granulated sweetener of choice)

Instructions

1. Make the Crust: In a medium bowl or standing mixer, beat butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and yogurt until creamed together and slightly fluffy. Add in tapioca flour, oat flour, and baking powder and fold together. Form into a ball and set dough aside on parchment lined baking sheet.

2. Make the filling: Use the same bowl to make the filling. Gently fold all filling ingredients together until berries are well coated.

3. Make the Frangipane: In a small/medium size bowl, combine all frangipane ingredients and mix until combined.

4. Roll out Dough: Preheat oven to 400 F. On parchment paper (or oat floured surface), press dough ball into a rectangle using the palms of your hands/fingers. Flour your rolling pin and roll out dough into a 13 by 12½ inch oval/rectangle (shape doesn’t have to be perfect. Thickness should be about ¼ inch). Dough might crack on edges while rolling, just pinch together sides of dough when needed.

5. Assemble Galette: Transfer the parchment paper with the rolled out crust onto a baking tray (I used a cookie sheet). Spread the frangipane on dough, leaving 1½ -2 inches around the edges. Place berries in the center of the dough, leaving a 2 inch border. Fold the edges up and over the filling, overlapping slightly (pinch together dough at bottom if it cracks when folding over). Optional: Lightly brush with almond milk and sprinkle with coconut sugar. 

6. Bake Galette: Bake galette at 400 F. for 25-30 minutes until golden and berries are slightly bubbling. Let cool 10 minutes before serving with your favorite ice cream or whipped topping!

Notes

  1. Don’t have tapioca flour? You can use 2 Tbs cornstarch or ¼ Cup arrowroot starch in place of the tapioca flour. You may need a little more oat flour if using cornstarch since it is a smaller quantity. Please let me know how it turns out!
  2. Dough Texture: Some oat flours act differently in baking. Allow your dough to set 2-5 minutes to let moisture absorb. If dough is still too sticky after that just add a little more oat flour. If dough is too dry, add a little water or milk and mix until you have a nice dough.
  3. How to Make A Flax Egg: Mix 1 Tbs ground flax seeds with 2 Tbs water and let sit for 5-10 minutes until thickened.
  4. Storing Galette: Store your homemade galette covered in cling wrap or in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 days, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or freezer for up to 3 months.
