When apples are in high season this Low-Carb Apple Galette is a fantastic way to use 'em up! For this fall dessert, my Paleo Pie Crust envelopes sweet tender apple slices, spiced with cinnamon. The boys love this and I love that such an easy low-carb dessert recipe is also super healthy. It tastes so incredible though that no one will ever know this treat is good for you!
My Low-Carb Apple Galette filling is made with only 6 ingredients total so you can throw it together very easily. I like to make a Paleo Pie Crust and divide it in half, using one half for the low-carb crust in this recipe. Then, I save the other half for another use, wrapping it in parchment, placing it in a plastic bag and storing in the refrigerator. Paleo Pie Crust will last for about 5 days when stored this way.
The key to making this dessert is to roll out the dough so that it's very thin. After, that you'll place the apple slices in the center. Next, fold the crust over the edges, like I did in the photo above. The trick to this is to use the parchment to help you fold. That way, the flaky dough will move more easily. Another tip is to slice the apples very thin. I use this slicer and then slice each of the pieces into fourths.
A galette is a sweet or savory, rustic looking pastry. The French word “galet” literally means “smooth, flat pebble,” indicating something round. I've taken liberties and made this a rectangular dessert. Don't be distressed if the dough for this galette breaks, simply patch it with your fingers. Galettes are meant to be simple desserts and perfection is not an ingredient in this luscious rustic-style apple pie.
You'll notice this low-carb recipe is sweetened with maple syrup and stevia. I use this combination of sweeteners because I cannot digest traditional low-carb sweeteners like erythritol. Other than xylitol, most low-carb sweeteners are made of corn, a food that is incredibly inflammatory for me. Additionally, I cannot digest the sugar alcohols that the corn is turned into.
