What is a Vegan Apple Galette?

A galette (galette des rois), is one of the most popular desserts in France. It is a simple, flat, round cake typically made of pastry dough and very visually appealing! Galette’s can be sweet or savory, and after making this delicious vegan apple galette, I cannot wait to make a savory one.

In America, most people would call this dish a tart. It’s very similar to custard tarts topped with fruit that you see at bakeries. The dough is a bit different but it’s the same concept overall.

Vegan Apple Galette with 8 Main Ingredients!

Crust: Oats, walnuts, dates and flax.

This is the definition of a wholesome vegan dessert! Packed with fiber, protein, healthy fats, fruit, and a bit of sugar. However, no one will even know how nutritious it is after tasting it! I’ve made this crust for pies before and it was a BIG HIT. Make this vegan apple galette for the upcoming holidays, family get-togethers, or even just for a lazy weekend to yourself. Let’s be honest, we can all probably eat the whole thing!

Tips and Substitutes:

  • Oats: I highly recommend using rolled oats for the crust. Using quick oats will result in a mushy crust. I have never tried making it with steel cut oats! If you are looking for certified gluten-free oats, I highly recommend Bakery on Main.
  • Walnuts: You can use pecans to substitute. If you are allergic to nuts, use sunflower seeds instead. You might need to add 1/2 tbsp of oil if using sunflower seeds.
  • Dates: They play a big role in making a great gluten-free, vegan crust. They help bind as well as sweeten. Make sure you soak your pitted dates in hot water before adding to food processor.
  • Flax: Egg replacement that helps bind and adds healthy fats. Use chia or tapioca starch as a substitute if needed, same measurements.
  • Apples: You can use many different types of fruits here. Other great alternatives include: pears, peaches, berries, mango, and figs.
  • Sugar: I like using brown sugar or coconut sugar for this recipe but you can also use regular cane sugar or a sugar substitute if you are blood sugar cautious. If using a substitute sugar try truvia or stevia for best results. Use 1/3 cup rather than 1/2 cup as it may be sweeter.
  • Vegan butter: I like using earth balance, or Miyoko’s.
  • Corn starch: If not gluten-free use flour instead.

  • 23 Honeycrisp or Pink Lady apples
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Slice apples into 1/4 inch slices. Add all filling ingredients to a mixing bowl and whisk to combine well. 
  3. Add apple slices into a mixing bowl and stir in until evenly coated in the mixture. Set aside.
  4. Soak dates in extra hot water for a few minutes. Prep flax egg by combining flax meal and water.
  5. Add 2 cups of rolled oats to a blender and blend until oat flour is created. Set aside.
  6. Add walnuts to the food processor and process until crumb-like pieces form. Add oat flour, soaked dates, and flax egg. Process for 4-5 minutes until dough forms.
  7. Make a dough ball with your hands and use your hands or a rolling pin to flatten it out and create about a 10-12 inch crust that is about 1/4 inch thick.
  8. Leave about an inch border around the edge of the crust and arrange apple slices on top of the dough.
  9. Fold the edges of the crust towards the center and over about 1/2 inch of the outer apple slices.
  10. Pour the remaining filling mixture over the apple slices and bake for 35-40 minutes until apples are cooked and the edges of the galette are brown and slightly crispy.
  11. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely before slicing.
