I cannot think of a better treat than a juicy rustic paleo peach galette with a giant scoop of ice cream (dairy free for me please). Served at a dinner party or eaten for breakfast with a piping hot cup of coffee this is the perfect end of summer pastry. Traditionally from France the galette is simply pie crust and either a sweet fruit or savory filling.
This paleo peach galette was decidedly made because I picked more peaches than I knew what to do with, as usual. None went bad but by the end of the week I had to cut out some bruises. So using up 3 of these huge juicy peaches was imperative. I prefer the peach but you can make this with apples, pears, caramelized onions (which I might do next), whatever you so choose!
I was inspired to make this galette because Lauren Carnes, a very talented lady-boss photographer, who I admire and learn from regularly from her Instagram stories shared some food photography tips. Lauren actually used a beautiful pear galette she made as her example for sharing her tips. And then I had galette on the brain and a box full of peaches. So naturally I decided to make a rustic paleo peach galette and have a photo shoot like I usually do!
I first tried making this paleo peach galette recipe in the food processor but the dough got so thick and heavy before I even added the ghee that I had to make it by hand. So I hit the restart button and to the bowl it all went. I think its pretty great that we can transform recipes that use white flour to a nutrient dense treat with almond flour. But with that added nutrient density comes a change in texture. The crust is a little less flakey than it’s mainstream counterpart but y’all, its still so good! And for those with gluten sensitivities or inflammatory issues this is a great alternative!
Galettes are very forgivingly beautiful. No need to worry about a pie dish with this recipe or cutting out designs. You don’t even need to organize the peaches in a circle. It’s meant to be piled in there and folded up tight! Kind of like kiddos in the midst of a sleepover.
I seriously hope you love this paleo treat! This paleo peach galette is all things …
