Warm-up your autumn evenings with this easy Apple Galette! Autumn is one of my favourite seasons to bake desserts. This recipe is not only vegan (obvi) but it’s also refined sugar free, I loveeee using coconut sugar in most of my baked goods because when it bakes, it melts into an almost caramel-like sauce.

When I first tested this dessert recipe out I sprinkled the apples with all the coconut sugar, cinnamon, and vegan butter cut into small chunks. Although it tasted delcious, it didn’t look the most appealing because it made a thin caramel-like layer over the apples, making the apples look burnt! Below is the most beautiful + incredibly tasting vegan Apple Galette!

What is a galette?

A galette is a rustic pastry dough filled with anything of your choice! Yes, anything! You can make your galette sweet (like I’ve done with my apple galette) or even savoury! The reason I love galette’s is because I can make this easy pastry dough ahead of time – refrigerate for 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month! And not like other baked desserts there’s not much (or anything) that could go wrong. You don’t need to worry about if the pastry dough will fit in any dish, or about it becoming too dry ect. (I’m sub-blogging you cakes!)

Best apples for baking?

Okay, so in theory you can use any type of apples you have but, I do find granny smith apples work best in any baked goods. I love granny smith apples because they have a tart flavour, preventing your desserts from becoming too sweet. They also hold their shape a bit better when baked.
