It’s Pie Week in the UK and it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday so we thought why not tie the two together and create a pie that you can make for your Mum. It’s gluten-free as well 

Ingredients (Serves 4-6 people)


  • 110g Cold Butter or vegan butter (cut into 1inch cubes)
  • 50g Coconut Sugar
  • 110g Brown Rice Flour
  • 35g Buckwheat Flour
  • 50g Ground Almonds
  • 25g Corn flour
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1-3 tbsp Ice water


  • 3 medium sized apples (cored and thinly sliced)
  • 1-2 tbsp Cornflour
  • 40g Coconut Sugar
  • Maple Syrup
  • 1 egg (beaten)


  1. In a mixing bowl add all of the dry ingredients (Brown rice flour, buckwheat flour, ground almonds, cornflour, coconut sugar) and mix well.
  1. Add the cubed butter to the dry mix and using your hands crumble to combine, you’re looking to make pea sized pieces of butter throughout the mixture – not wanting to combine it fully.
  2. In a small bowl beat one egg and then add the egg to the dough mixture and bring together with a fork. When pressed the dough should start to form a ball – if it doesn’t do this then add 1 or more tablespoons of your ice water until the dough comes together.
  3. Turn out the dough onto a floured board and start kneading it very gently to make sure all pieces of the mix are incorporated. Roll and shape into a small disk and cover in cling film and place in the fridge for 1 hour.
  4. Pre-heat the oven to 180c.
  5. Core and chop your apple into thin slices, leaving the skin on. Place into a bowl and mix in the cornflour and sugar and stir until all apple pieces are covered in the mix, set to one side until ready to use.
  6. Take the dough out of the fridge and roll out onto a floured surface, make sure the surface is thoroughly dusted with rice flour to prevent sticking. Flour your rolling pin and roll it out until it is between 1- 0.5cm thick. Mark out a small boarder around the edge of your dough and then start to arrange your apple slices into the centre of the dough – once they are how you’d like fold the edges of the dough over the filing.
  7. Brush the beaten egg across the edges of the galette. At this point you can sprinkle some dark brown sugar over the apples to add colour.
  8. Place into the pre-heated oven and bake for between 20-35 mins (depending on your oven) When the edges start to colour and the filling is hot and cooked through – remove from the oven.
  9. Brush the apples with maple syrup to give them a lovely glaze.
  10. Allow cooling for between 10-15mins before serving and enjoying!
