Feel free to swap out the strawberries for any in season summer berry you prefer. The same prep method still applies for raspberries, blueberries or blackberries.

Low-Carb Strawberry Galette

Galettes are the essence of Summer desserts. This low-carb Strawberry Galette is perfect whether you’re a keto beginner in the kitchen or have been following a low-carb diet for years. The pastry is buttery and flakey, complementing the sweet strawberries perfectly. Serve with keto ice cream, whipped cream, Greek or coconut yogurt.

Cook Time 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients

STRAWBERRIES

  • 14 ounces strawberries sliced or halved (approx. 2.5 cups) or 400grams
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (or lemon juice)
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 2 tbsp Swerve granular sweetener
  • 1 tsp lemon zested or 1/2 lemon

Instructions

  1. Place the almond flour, flax meal, erythritol, xanthan gum and salt in a food processor and pulse to combine, or mix in bowl with a spoon.

  2. Add the butter and cream cheese and pulse till crumbly or rub with your fingers. Add the apple cider vinegar and 1 egg and pulse till the dough comes together into thick crumbs. It will be a little sticky, don’t worry.

  3. Remove the dough from the food processor and shape into a ball. Cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for about 15 – 20 minutes, or until firm enough to roll.

  4. Meanwhile, prepare the strawberries. Place all the ingredients for the strawberries in a bowl and mix to combine. Leave to rest whilst you roll the dough.

  5. Roll the galette dough between two sheets of greaseproof paper to form a circle. Option to trim any stray edges if you like. Place back in the fridge for about 10 minutes to stiffen enough to fold.

  6. NOTE: If at any point the dough gets unmanageable and a bit sticky, simply pop in the fridge for 10 minutes to stiffen up again.

  7. Preheat oven to 400F / 200C /180 fan. Line a baking sheet pan with parchment. Place chilled dough onto pan.

  8. Spread the strawberries onto the chilled dough in the center (make sure there is no excess liquid) leaving about 2 inches at the edges. Fold over the dough edges. Any cracks just press together with your fingers to seal.

  9. Whisk the other egg with a fork in a cup and brush the top edges of the pastry. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden.

  10. Slice and serve with keto ice cream, whipped cream, Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt.

  11. Storage: Fridge, covered for 2 days
