Celebrate fall with a no-fuss salted caramel apple galette with walnuts and whole wheat crust. It's way easier than pie, but just as delicious!



For the Crust:

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • up to 4 tbsp ice-cold water

For the Filling:

  • 3-4 tbsp caramel sauce (I use my salted miso caramel)
  • 2 medium apples, peeled and cored
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • additional cinnamon and raw sugar, for sprinkling (optional)
  • flaky sea salt, such as Maldon, for sprinkling


  1. Add whole wheat pastry flour, salt, and cubed butter to the bowl of a food processor. Process until butter is in pea-sized chunks.
  2. Add cold water 1 tbsp at a time, pulsing, just until dough forms a loose ball. Dump out onto a sheet of parchment and roll into a thin circle. Place in the refrigerator while you prepare the apples.
  3. Thinly slice apples (about 1/4-inch thick) and place in a large bowl. Add sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and walnuts. Toss to coat.
  4. Heat oven to 425°F.
  5. Place parchment with dough on a baking sheet or pizza stone. Spread caramel sauce on top of the dough, leaving a 2-inch border.
  6. Arrange apple slices on top of the dough and walnuts on top of the caramel. Pour any juices from the apples on top.
  7. Fold the bordering dough over the apples around the edges, working in a circle.
  8. Sprinkle edges of the dough with cinnamon and raw sugar (or regular sugar).
  9. Bake 15-20 min or until filling is bubbly and crust is golden.
  10. Remove from oven and sprinkle with flaky sea salt. Cool 5-10 minutes before cutting.
  11. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. and an extra drizzle of caramel.


  • I use my salted miso caramel in this recipe for an extra hit of umami. But any caramel sauce works!
  • You want to keep the dough as cold as possible, so you may want to put it in the refrigerator while you slice and toss the apples.
  • It's ok if it's not perfectly round or if the crust cracks a little. That's the rustic charm of a galette!
  • You can use all purpose flour if you'd rather.
  • Use any apple you like, or a mix or them. I like Honeycrisp, Gala, and Fuji for baking, but any variety will work. Peel the apples if you like, or leave the peels on for an even easier dessert (with more fiber too!).
  • Leave out the walnuts if you don't like them.
