Blueberry Galette

This blueberry galette bursts with a 'just sweet enough' fruity berry filling and crisp oat flour-based dough. This combination yields a gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan dessert. Best of all, this recipe is also versatile; swap out the flours and fillings to your liking and make several mini- or one large vegan galette!

Ingredients

Pastry:

  • 1 cup (90 g) oat flour GF if needed (see notes for subs)
  • 3 tbsp (24 g) tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp psyllium husk powder
  • 1 tbsp organic cane sugar or coconut sugar
  • 3 1/2 tbsp cold (50 g) vegan butter (see notes)
  • 2-3 tbsp ice-cold water

Filling:

  • 1 cup fresh (200 g) blueberries
  • 1 tbsp organic cane sugar or coconut sugar
  • 3/4 tsp tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Instructions

Pastry:

  • You can watch the video in the post for visual instructions.
    Mix the oat flour, tapioca flour, psyllium husk powder, and organic sugar in a mixing bowl (see notes below for other flour versions).
  • Use a fork (or a pastry cutter), to cut the cold vegan butter (or the solid coconut oil) into the mixture. Add the ice-cold water and mix again.
    Add a bit more water if the dough appears dry, but be careful not to add too much. If it's too wet, add more flour.
  • Use your hands to form the dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap and chill it for at least 30 minutes (or up to 3 days) in the refrigerator.

Filling:

  • In a medium bowl, stir together the blueberries, lemon juice, organic sugar, and tapioca flour. Set aside.

Assemble the galette:

  • Preheat the oven to 390 °F (200 °C).
  • Divide the dough into 4-5 portions (if you want to make mini galettes). Flour a large piece of parchment paper (or a silicone mat) with tapioca flour, and roll out each dough ball with a floured rolling pin into a circle.
    Note: It helps to roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper. You can shape the dough with your wet fingers if there are cracks, however, it doesn't need to look perfect.
    Transfer the parchment paper to a baking sheet.
  • Divide the blueberries among the pies, leaving a 1-1 1/2-inch (3-4 cm) border all around. Carefully fold the borders over the filling, overlapping when needed.
    Since the dough is gluten-free, it might crumble or crack. I often use a knife to fold the edges over the berries (check the step-by-step photos in the post above).
  • Brush the edges with oil or melted vegan butter and sprinkle with organic cane sugar (or coconut sugar).
  • Bake until the berry filling is bubbly, and the crust is golden brown, about 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Other GF flours: You can use 90 grams of rice flour (5/8 cups) or 90 grams of buckwheat flour (3/4 cup).
  • Regular flour: If the recipe doesn't need to be gluten-free, then use 120 grams (1 cup) of all-purpose flour and leave out the tapioca flour and psyllium husk powder. Everything else remains the same.
  • Vegan butter: You can use 3 tablespoons of solid coconut oil, which is 42 grams. Oat flour and all-purpose flour work fine with coconut oil, but the crust is quite crumbly. I didn't have much luck with the buckwheat flour/coconut oil combo, as the dough was very crumbly and brittle.
  • Berries: You can use other berries of choice, e.g. blackberries, raspberries, or a mix.
  • The total time doesn't include chill time.
