Ingredients

For the Pastry:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup light spelt flour (or use all-purpose flour in equal measure)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tbsp organic cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil softened, but not liquid
  • 4-6 tbsp cold non-dairy milk
  • 1 tbsp organic cane sugar for sprinkling

Apple Filling:

  • 3 medium apples peeled and cored
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450'F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. Peel and core the apples and slice them into 1/8" slices. Place them in a large mixing bowl and combine with the maple syrup, cinnamon and lemon juice.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour and salt. Add the coconut oil and and non-dairy milk and stir gently with a fork until the mixture starts to come together and form small pea-sized crumbs. Don't over mix it otherwise, you may end up with a tough pastry crust.

  3. Form the dough into a ball and gently flatten into a disk shape with the palm of your hand.

  4. Lightly flour a work surface and roll your pastry dough into a 12" round (about 1/8" thick). Don't worry if your dough is not perfectly round, it's meant to be rustic looking.

  5. Place your dough round onto the prepared baking sheet and spoon the apple mixture (and juices) into the centre of the pastry. Fold up the edges, creating pleats as you work your way around. Brush a small amount of non-dairy milk on the folded pastry edge and sprinkle with the organic cane sugar. This step is optional, but it does make for a nice presentation afterwards.

  6. Bake at 450'F for 20 minutes, then reduce the heat to 375'F and bake for another 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Let cool on the baking sheet before serving.

Recipe Notes

The vegan apple galette is versatile and can be made with any seasonal fruits; summer is a perfect time to make a berry galette.
