These might not be the nicest photos, but it sure is a delicious dessert!
I’ll state that this is healthy because, first of all, there’s apples (duh!), which contain important antioxidants. Secondly, there’s a minimal amount of added sugar and it still tastes sweet!
Since I have nothing really left to say (yeah, this January’s starting out as a boring month for me), let’s jump straight to the recipe.
Easy Cinnamon Apple Galette
A delicious and healthy galette with sweet apples and plain yumminess. Note: You can replace the coconut oil with more butter if you wish.
Adapted from my Strawberry and Cranberry Galette recipe.
1 cup all-purpose flour
52 g (1/4 cup) coconut oil, soft (not melted)
2 tbsp. butter, cold and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 large apples, sliced thinly
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
- Dough: In the food processor, pulse the flour, coconut oil and butter together until it’s grainy. Add the egg, pulsing until dough becomes slightly sticky. Dump the dough onto a clean counter-top surface and, using your hands, form a 1/2-inch tall disc. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
- Filling: Meanwhile (around the 30 minute mark of dough refrigeration), preheat oven to 190 °C (375 °F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix together apples, cinnamon and brown sugar. Let rest until dough is ready to take out of the fridge.
- Assembly: Roll out the dough onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet to form a large 14 by 10 inch rectangle. Now pour the apple mixture onto the middle of the dough, making sure to leave a 1-inch border untouched. Fold that 1-inch border over the edges of the apple filling.
- Bake for 40 to 50 minutes until crust is golden brown and apples are soft and juicy. Let rest for 15 minutes before serving with ice cream or whipped cream. Can be covered and stored at room temperature for a few days.
