Rustic Gluten-Free Galette with Dark Sweet Cherries

This delicious cherry gluten-free galette tastes just as wonderful as cherry pie and it so much easier to make!


I really love galettes because they are essentially pies for the simple folk. The best part about them? The more you mess them up, the more rustic they start to look. Basically, this is a fool proof recipe that tastes just as good as a well constructed pie. If you are looking for a quick and easy recipe that’s sure to impress, look no further than a rustic galette. I promise you this dessert will wow everybody.


Lets talk cherries. The cherries are the easiest part of this delicious galette recipe. Soak them in sweetener, lemon juice and tapioca flour for 20-25 minutes before you dump them in your galette. That’s all! No pre-cooking required.

What’s in the dough? I know, I know this galette recipe calls for grass fed butter and I don’t often use butter in my recipes but the crust will taste so much better with butter, just trust me. The butter may be replaced with vegan butter or solid coconut oil. If you using coconut oil, know going into it that the dough will not be as moldable as if you were using butter or ghee. Using coconut oil will make the crust difficult to fold.

Rustic Cherry Gluten-Free Galette

Rustic and simple gluten free cherry galette.


  • 1/2 c gluten-free baking flour
  • 2 tbsp butter, see notes for replacements
  • 3-4 tbsp water
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 tbsp granulated sweetener
  • 1 c fresh or frozen pitted cherries
  • 1 tbsp granulated sweetener
  • 1 tbsp lime juice or lemon
  • 1/2 tbsp tapioca flour
  • almond milk for brushing


  • In a mixing bowl, stir together the cherries, sweetener, lime juice and tapioca flour until everything is well coated. Let sit for 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile prepare your dough by placing all ingredients into a food processor and pulsing just until the dough comes together. If too wet, add a tsp of flour and pulse until dough comes together.
  • Roll the dough out a on piece of parchment paper dusted with gluten free baking flour until it's about 1/8 inch in thickness. Try and get as close to a circle as you can but it doesn't have to be perfect.
  • Dump the cherry mixture into the center of the dough leaving about 1 inch of room around the edges. *If you used frozen cherries and had a lot of juices release while the mixture was sitting, drain out the liquid before dumping the cherries into the center of the dough.
  • Fold the edges inward. Brush the crust with almond milk and bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 F.


*butter can be replaced with ghee, vegan butter or solid coconut oil but keep in mind the texture will change
