It took me a long time before I dared to make a galette on my own. I really don’t know why, but I just thought it was complicated and hard. And that it was hard to make a healthier version of it. But wow was I wrong. Making a galette can be one of the easiest things ever. You only mix the dough, put it in the fridge, roll it to a thin layer, fill it with your favorite filling and then bake it in the oven. Now galette is one if my favorite things to bake, both sweet and savory once. This crust is made with less fat than a regular galette dough since I swapped most of the butter for apple sauce. It is also sugar free since the apple sauce provides sweetness to the crust. For me a galette shouldn’t be too sweet, I prefer to get most of the sweetness from fruit filling. If you prefer a sweeter crust you can easily add some sugar to it and still get just as good of a result. This galette is filled with cherries and cardamom which makes it the perfect summer dessert or afternoon treat. It is both vegan, gluten, oil and sugar free.
A few tips:
- When making the apple sauce for the crust make sure to use sweeter apples since they provide sweetness to the crust.
- You will need to kneed the dough for some time, but if it really doesn’t come together after 5-10 minutes then add about one more table spoon of apple sauce.
- This recipe is for a vegan galette, but if not vegan you can swap the vegan butter for regular butter.
- I brushed the galette with almond milk, but you can use any milk you prefer or have at home.
- If not vegan you can brush the galette with egg if preferred.
- Keep an eye on the galette in the oven. It can easily go from quite pail to browned in just a few minutes.
- Serve warm or cold, according to preferences.
