  • Pastry Ingredients:
  • 1½ Tbsp oats, ground
  • 3 Tbsp boiling water
  • 1¼ cup all-purpose GF flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup vegan butter or vegetable shortening, cold
  • 1 Tbsp apple sauce
  • 1 Tbsp cold water
  • 3 Tbsp coarse sugar (for sprinkling on galettes)
  • Filling Ingredients:
  • 3 large apples (McIntosh and Granny Smith are our favorites for baking)
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • ¼ cup all-purpose GF flour
  • ¼ cup cane sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp allspice
  • 4 Tbsp vegan butter or coconut oil, cold and cut into small pieces


  • Combine oats with boiling water and set aside and let cool to room temperature.

  • In a food processor, combine flour, salt, baking powder and vegan butter/shortening. Pulse until the mixture is the texture of pebbles the size of peas.

  • Add in oats (make sure they’re not hot), banana puree (or other) and 1 tablespoon of cold water. Process until the dough is holding together. If too dry add in more cold water 1 teaspoon at a time.

  • Remove dough from food processor and form into a ball. Wrap tightly with saran wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to chill.

  • Preheat oven to 425°F and line a sheet pan(s) with parchment paper.

  • Once dough is chilled, liberally dust countertop with flour. Roll dough into a circle with 1/8th inch thickness.

  • Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 1/8 and each 1/8 in to 3 chucks or slices.

  • Toss apples with lemon juice and zest, flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, allspice and vegan butter.

  • Pour apple mixture into the center of the pastry. Fold pastry edges over, pleating it into a tight circle around the apples.

  • Optional: Brush dough with melted oil and sprinkle with sugar.

  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden and apples are tender. Cool before serving. Enjoy!
