Paleo Apple Galette (Grain Free & AIP)

We often stay in a vacation condo when we travel because the easiest way to eat AIP-compliant is to do a lot of our own cooking – something we love to do! On this one vacation, I was craving apple pie, but vacation condos don’t supply a pie plate! The answer….apple galette! I did have the pastry ingredients with me, but I didn’t have a scale. I took a chance and found this website and converted the weight to cups and tablespoons. (I promise to update this post once I can make this again at home with the use of my food scale. ) We gave this recipe a try anyhow and thought you’d be interested in how it turned out:

Paleo Apple Galette (Grain Free & AIP) by Little Bites of Beauty


For the Pastry:
80 gr Tigernut Flour
60 gr Arrowroot Flour
20 gr Coconut Flour
½ tsp Ginger Powder
*10 gr Maca Powder (*avoid if on the AIP. Maca is immune stimulating; I asked Eileen from Phoenix Helix and she told me she would recommend removing it from AIP-friendly recipes, that should always err on the safe side).
60 gr Coconut Milk
1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
40 gr Coconut Oil, melted
30 gr Coconut Water

For the Filling:
½ Peach, sliced (if out of season, reheat slices of frozen peach until soft
1/3 Apple, sliced
¼ tsp ground Cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Combine all the dry ingredient together in a bowl, mix well with a fork and add in the remaining wet ingredients.
  3. Knead well with your hands until you have a nice ball of dough.
  4. Roll out the dough for your paleo galette between two sheets of parchment paper until about ¼” thick.
  5. Place the fruit filling in the center of your dough (try to place the slices in a circular shape like you see in the photos) and carefully fold the pastry sides up.
  6. Sprinkle the top of your paleo apple galette with cinnamon and bake for about 40-45 minutes or until the crust is crispy and golden.
  7. Remove the paleo apple galette from the oven and let it cool before slicing.

Summary:  This recipe turned out great and smelled AMAZING! We used one medium size Granny Smith apple and the sweetness level was perfect, a real surprise even though the recipe doesn’t include a sweetener! We will definitely make this one for family and friends and update the test ratings!

  1. This sounds amazing… and much simpler than a pie. I’d l Poi be to have the nutritional information for the recipe. It would make it easier to meet my dietary needs.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Charlotte! We agree that including the nutritional information is a great idea! We hope to add that in the near future!
