Cassava Flour Berry Galette

Perfectly tart, sweet and full of nutrients, my gluten-free take on the French galette only takes 15 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to bake! You easily can prepare the crust and berries the night before and then bake it off for breakfast the next morning!

Ingredients for crust

  • 1 cup cassava flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons of almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons of melted ghee or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons of cold water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg white for brushing dough

Ingredients for berry mix

  • 2 tablespoons of ghee or coconut oil
  • 2 cups of your choice berries (I used frozen organic blueberries + blackberries)
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar
  • fresh juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of ground chia seed (1 teaspoon of tapioca starch can be substituted)
  • 1 teaspoon of grass fed gelatin (omit if using tapioca starch)
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Makes 1-10 inch galette yielding 4 servings

How To

1). For the crust: In a large bowl, combine the crust ingredients, except the egg white. Using your hand, mix ingredients and form a ball. Knead for 1 minute. If crust is dry, add a tablespoon or two more, of melted ghee or oil, and lightly knead again. Wrap in parchment or saran wrap and chill while preparing the berry mix.

2). For the berry mix: Melt ghee or coconut oil in a medium skillet over low heat. Add berries and remaining ingredients. Stir over low heat for 3 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from heat.

3). Preheat oven to 350 °F.

4). Place dough ball between 2 sheets of parchment paper and using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to form a 10-inch crust.

5). Remove the top piece of parchment paper. Pick up the bottom piece of parchment with the dough rolled out on it and set it on a half sheet pan or large baking dish.

6). Spoon in the berry mixture. Fold the sides of the galette crust over (as seen in the photo).

7). Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool a bit before eating.
