This cozy vegan bourbon apple galette has all the flavors of a delicious apple pie but without all the fuss.  It has a crispy sweet crust holding together bourbon infused baked apples all topped off with a scoop or two of ice cream.  Made with gluten-free and paleo-friendly ingredients, it simply must be on your fall baking list.



For the crust

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 Tbsp coconut sugar (plus a little extra to sprinkle on top)
  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil (solid)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 - 5 Tbsp ice cold water

For the filling

  • 2 - 3 apples (I recommend honey crisp or pink lady)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 Tbsp bourbon (you can omit this to keep it completely paleo-friendly)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

To Top


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.  Mix the almond flour, tapioca starch, and coconut sugar together in a food processor, stand-mixer, or large mixing bowl.  Then add the coconut oil, cold water , and vanilla and mix to incorporate.
  2. Roll out the dough onto a large piece of parchment paper sprinkled with a little extra tapioca starch to about 1/4 inch in thickness.  Place a 9-inch cake pan over top and lightly press down to create an indentation (use this as your guide when adding your filling)
  3. Slice the apples into thin pieces.  Fan out the apples into a large circle outlining the circle indentation moving clockwise.  Create a smaller circle with the apples moving counter-clockwise inside of the large circle
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the bourbon, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Drizzle over top of the apples.  Use the back of the spoon to brush the mixture into any bare areas
  5. Use the parchment paper to help fold up the sides of the dough towards the middle.  Make little "pleats" with the dough every couple of inches by tucking the dough on top of itself to create a large circle
  6. Sprinkle the crust with a little extra sugar and bake for 25 - 30 minutes until the crust is golden brown
  7. Top the galette with a couple scoops of ice cream and serve
