Healthy Cherry Galette Recipe

This is an amazing galette recipe with a healthy, rich crust and mildly sweet filling of fresh cherries.

The pie crust in this Healthy Cherry Galette is all about the flavor, texture, and health benefits. It is composed of whole wheat flour, oat flour, some olive oil, and sweetened with a bit of maple syrup.

Olive oil lends the crust irresistible flakiness and such an old-fashioned flavor. One more thing is that olive oil for sure makes the pie crust lighter, dairy-free, and saturated fat-free.

The dough is less elastic in this recipe than typical pie dough, but you can mend cracks by pinching it back together. However, it’s still easy to work with when you place the dough on a sheet of parchment paper to roll it out.

For the cherry filling, I kept it sugar-free because the cherries are sweet and flavorful on their own.

Feel free to make this galette with whatever fruits or berries you have on hand – apples, pears, peaches, ripe apricots, plums, strawberries, or blueberries… You can really fill the galette with anything, sweet or even savory.

For me, it’s better to eat a slice while it’s still warm with some ice cream or Greek yogurt.

How to Store Leftover Galette

This recipe makes just the right size for 6 persons, but it also keeps well for leftovers stored in an airtight container at room temperature. If you desire to enjoy it warm, you could reheat the galette at 325°F until warmed through.
