This easier-than-pie blueberry galette is the perfect end of summer healthy dessert! Novice bakers, this is the dessert for you! You won’t need any special equipment or pans to make this blueberry galette. Best of all, it is vegan, gluten-free, grain-free and refined sugar-free.
If you are wondering what a galette is, it is basically pastry dough or pie crust wrapped around fresh fruit. This time of year you could use peaches or blueberries. I can’t wait to try this recipe out with apples next.
Simply roll out the dough, fill it up with the blueberry mixture, fold in the edges and bake for just 25 minutes. That’s it! It is much simpler than traditional pie and I love the perfectly imperfect rustic appeal of it, especially this time of year when you want a dessert that is easy, sweet and satisfying. And, if it doesn’t come out picture perfect, well, that is a-okay!
The crust is made from almond flour, coconut flour and arrowroot powder. The combination of these grain-free baking flours makes for a tender, flaky crust that tastes amazing.
It is the perfect envelope for the juicy, sweet and tart blueberry center.
For an extra special touch, you can brush the top of the crust with coconut oil and add a sprinkle of turbinado sugar or coconut sugar. I love it this way!
Serve this blueberry galette warm right out of the oven with a couple scoops of vegan vanilla ice cream or homemade coconut whipped cream. I love the creamy white and purple sauce that comes from the melted vanilla ice cream over the hot juicy blueberries – heaven!
There likely won’t be any leftovers but if there is, you can omit the ice cream and enjoy it for breakfast the next morning.
This delicious blueberry galette is vegan, paleo, dairy-free, grain-free, soy-free, peanut-free and gluten-free which makes it wonderful for serving to anyone with food allergies or food sensitivities. It is also refined sugar-free and sweetened with pure maple syrup.
