When I’m doing Whole30 there is really only 1 thing that I miss….dessert. It’s. Just. So. Good.

This galette has no sugar in the filling and you wouldn’t even know it’s missing. The trick is to find a nice sweet apple.


We got a bunch of McIntosh apples from our local orchard farm stand, brought them home, and went to town making an amazing galette. You’ll be dreaming about it.


-4 medium McIntosh apples ( pink lady or galas would work too)
-juice of 1/2 lemon
-2 tbl cinnamon

– 2 1/2 Cups flour (almond flour or cassava flour if paleo)
– 1 tsp salt
– 1 tsp sugar (coconut sugar if paleo)
– 1 cup cold butter or ghee
– 1/4-1/2 cup cold water

Slice apples thinly and place in a bowl. Sprinkle cinnamon and squeeze lemon juice all over apples. Stir and set aside while crust is being made.

For the crust mix flour, salt, and sugar together. Mix in cold butter until dough becomes crumbly looking. Slowly add cold water and knead, making sure that the dough doesn’t become to sticky. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for an hour.
When ready, roll dough out and place apples in the middle and fold over ends. Place in a 400° oven for about 20 min or until crust is golden brown.

This would be great with coffee in the morning or with a big ol’ scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Feel free to add chopped nuts or even rolled oats into the mixture!

Whole30: no
Paleo: yes
