Prep: 20Cook: 50Total: 1 hour 10 minutes
Yield 6 slices 1x



  • 1.5 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 6 tbsp cold butter
  • 1/2 cup ice water


  • 4 medium apples
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • sprinkle turbinado sugar


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp milk of any kind


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, and coconut sugar. Using a box grater, grate butter into the flour. Use a pastry cutter to mix it all together. Add 1/2 cup ice water a little at a time until the dough comes together. Form into a ball and refrigerate 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, peel, core and slice apples very thin. Add them to a bowl.
  4. Add coconut sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon to apples. Stir until well combined.
  5. Take dough out of refrigerator. Lay one piece of parchment paper down on the counter and dust with flour. Add the dough ball to the paper and dust the top of the dough with flour. Place another piece of parchment paper on top and roll dough out into a round circle, about the size of a large pie dish.
  6. Add apples to center of dough, piling high and not pouring on any of the liquid that is left in the bottom of the bowl. Leave about 2 inches from the sides of the dough.
  7. Fold up sides of dough, sometimes overlapping, until the whole galette is secured.
  8. Add tiny dollops of butter on top of the apples, then brush the sides of the crust with egg and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  9. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 30 minutes.
  10. Whisk together all drizzle ingredients. Pour over cooled galette.
