Apple Galette (GF & Vegan)

Ever since I came across beautiful pastry galette's I've wanted to try a gluten free, vegan version of my own. The other day when I had some spare time I got myself in the kitchen to test out a free-from galette recipe, and you can see the outcome below!

I'm so impressed with how the recipe turned out. The pastry was a delicious crumbly yet buttery texture and the classic apple filling was a dream! You'd never know this dessert was gluten, dairy, egg and refined sugar free.

The pastry itself is made from a mixture of oat flour, brown rice flour, ground almonds and tapioca starch. I always find using a mixture of different gluten free flours tends to result in the best pastry texture and the tapioca starch is a must-have for that too! I used vegan butter in the pastry too but you could also use coconut oil. Then I added flax 'eggs' to help bind everything together, as well as some cinnamon to give the pastry a real warmth.

The galette filling is of course sweet apples mixed with maple syrup or honey (if you're not vegan), a little coconut sugar for extra sweetness and a caramel-like flavour as well as a bit more tapioca starch to ensure the apples don't give the galette a soggy bottom!
