Apple Filling:

  • 3 cups sweet-tart apples cored and sliced thin (unpeeled)
  • 3 Tablespoons Easy Caramel Sauce recipe below
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Easy Caramel Sauce for drizzling

Pie Crust:

  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 2 Tablespoons turbinado sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons solid palm oil
  • 1/4 cup Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened Vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons ground flax seed I used golden flax seed


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Prepare the apple filling:
  • Halve the apples, core, and slice thinly crosswise (across shorter side). Slice enough apples to make 3 cups
  • Toss the apples with the ground cinnamon, and Easy Caramel Sauce until well coated. Set aside
  • Prepare the crust:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt
  • In a small bowl, combine the Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened Vanilla and the ground flax seed and set aside for a couple minutes to allow to thicken
  • Meanwhile, use a pastry cutter to cut the solid palm oil into the flour mixture until crumbly
  • Add the flax gel to the flour mixture and stir until well combined and a stiff dough forms. You can add more almond milk 1 Tablespoon at a time if the mixture seems too dry
  • Press the dough firmly together into a ball. Place between 2 sheets of parchment paper and roll out to about 1/4 inch thick
  • Place the rolled dough onto a baking stone or parchment-lined baking sheet
  • Add the apples to the center of the pie crust, leaving about 2-inches of space between the edge of the crust and the filling
  • Fold the pie crust over the filling all around the pie, leaving some space in the center of the pie uncovered
  • Bake on a baking stone or a parchment-lined baking sheet for about 40 minutes, until crust is lightly browned and the apples are tender
  • Let the galette cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving
  • Drizzle with Easy Caramel Sauce and enjoy!
