For the dough:

  • 60g almond flour
  • 50g butter at room temperature
  • 50g shredded coconut
  • 20g sweetener (e.g. erythritol)
  • 1 egg

For the filling:

  • 200g blackberries
  • lemon juice to taste
  • sweetener to taste
  • 3 twigs of thyme

And here’s how you make this delicious blackberry thyme galette: 

  1. In a food processor, mix the shredded coconut, butter, almond flour, erythritol and egg together and then tip onto a baking tray. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a round shape.
  2. Prepare your fruit filling by adding 150g of the blackberries, the lemon juice and the twigs of thyme to a small pot and then heat slowly over medium heat until the mixture starts to boil. Reduce heat to low and cook on low heat until the blackberry stew starts to thicken. Then remove the thyme twigs and add sweetener to taste. Let it cool a bit before blending until smooth.
  3. Assemble the galette by pouring the fruit stew onto the dough. Leave a small border around the edge. Finally, fold the edges of the dough up and gently crimp them. Then, sprinkle the remaining blackberries onto the galette.
  4. Bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown at 160° fan and let it cool down for a bit before serving it.

 

Once out of the oven, grate fresh lemon zest over the galette.
