Grain-Free Rustic Cherry Galette. Easier than homemade cherry pie! This recipe is gluten-free and paleo. Serve it with your favorite ice cream for a healthier treat.



for the galette:

  • 1 box Simple Mills Artisan Bread Mix
  • 4 TBS frozen grass-fed butter or frozen coconut oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 TBS ice cold water
  • 1 TBS apple cider vinegar

for the filling:

  • 2 cups cherries, pitted (I recommend fresh here)
  • 3 TBS coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 TBS tapioca flour/starch (cornstarch may be subbed)
  • 1 TBS sliced almonds, optional


  1. To freeze coconut oil, scoop out 1/4 cup coconut oil and place in plastic wrap lined bowl. Transfer bowl to freezer for one hour. To freezer butter simply place 4 TBS butter in bowl. Transfer bowl to freezer for at least 30 minutes. Cut into cubes after frozen.
  2. In large bowl or bowl of food processor combine the Simple Mills Artisan Bread Mix with the frozen oil or butter. If using food processor pulse a few times until frozen oil or butter is broken down, but keep some chunks. If using large bowl, I grate the coconut oil into the bowl, or cut into chunks, then use a pastry blender to cut in.
  3. In a small bowl combine egg with 2 TBS ice cold water and apple cider vinegar using whisk or fork. Add this mixture into bowl with bread mix, combining with fork or spoon until dough starts to form. If mixture feels a little dry, add 1/2 – 1 TBS water and mix in. Dough should not be too wet, but it should hold together. Use your hands to mix in at the end if not using food processor.
  4. Shape dough into ball and place in bowl. Transfer to refrigerator for 45 minutes.
  5. Once dough has chilled, preheat oven to 375F.
  6. While the oven is preheating, start the filling: combine cherries with coconut sugar and tapioca starch. Gently mix until everything is dissolved. Set aside.
  7. On parchment paper, roll out dough into about 10″ circle, about 1/4″. You may want to use some tapioca or almond flour to help keep dough from sticking. If edges look a little rough, just gently shape with palm of hand. Make sure dough is thick enough to fold over.
  8. Place the cherry filling in the center of the galette dough, leaving about 1.5-2″ of space on the outside, enough to fold over.
  9. Start folding over the crust towards the center, using parchment paper to gently lift and press down, creating folds. If dough starts to break, simply press back together. It’s a rustic galette. Top with sliced almonds if you wish.
  10. Carefully transfer the parchment paper with the galette onto a flat baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until edges are lightly golden.
  11. Allow galette to cool on pan for 10-15 minutes before serving with your favorite toppings such as ice cream, coconut cream, etc. Enjoy!
