This delicious galette came about after I saw a stunning stone fruits galette on the cover of a food magazine.

I pondered it for a while, feeling a bit put out that I couldn’t make one because it looked so darn pretty. Suddenly it occurred to me that it might be possible to make a sweet Fat Head dough. I turned it over in my head for a bit longer, did an experiment or two and voila!

I worried that the juices from the berries would make the dough soggy, and when I pulled it out of the oven and saw the juices pooled around the base I thought it was a failure.

But no! The dough absorbs the sweet juices and still stays stable. Is there nothing that fat head dough cannot do?

This is so quick and easy to make, tastes delicious ad would be a great crowd pleaser. Enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 1 galette, 6 slices)

Dough:

Hello, what can be used in place of almond flour I am allergic?

You can try flax meal: 5-Ingredient Keto Ham & Cheese Pockets
Coconut flour might be an option too. Then only issue with coconut flour is that it is very absorbent so you may need to add extra moisture - one tablespoon of cream cheese is a good option 😊

It appears that someone over at Lakanto stole your recipe and substituted their sweetener.  I don't see anything on Lakanto's recipe that gives credit or a link to this recipe.  Their copycat is posted at: https://www.lakanto.com/blogs/recipes/summer-mixed-berry-galette

Thank you so much Susan, you are right! This is shocking coming from them - I wouldn't have expected anything like that. I will get in touch with them.

The last sentence in your directions says to refrigerate for 2 days... did that refer to the  leftovers, after it is served, or is that a necessary step before serving??

Hi Liz, this is only for the leftovers. The galette can be reheated if needed or eaten cold. I changed the text to clarify. Thank you!
