Wonder what this seeing the quoted “Mostly” in the title?? Because this freestyle tart – also known as Galette is made of Rolled oats & Dates, with just a little Whole Wheatmeal.
Hence the MOSTLY Gluten-free!! 🙂
Now to the why “MOSTLY” vegan part, I have added butter in the base prep. While this can be replaced with the coconut oil or coconut butter if you have it, I have the taste of the butter. So didn’t want to make any substitution here.
So, the base of the tart is all things healthy, if you’re like me who think BUTTER is healthy. I will leave it to you to decide.
This recipe has no added sugar in it, so the sweetness for the base come from the soft Medjool dates added. And the topping is so simple, just the chocolate spread of your choice and sliced bananas. So choose the best version of the spread you can find. I used the homemade Hazelnut spread.
DO NOT USE OVERRIPE BANANAS;) You will thank me later for this. Save the overripe bananas for breads or ice cream.
Back to the tart base- I have added unsalted butter and added himalayan salt to the dough mix. So if using salted butter, cut the added salt. And make sure you add spice to the dough – which here is cinnamon.
IT goes like this – Put all the tart base ingredients in the chopper blade processor so the rolled oats gets processed instead of staying whole. Once the dough comes together, put them in between two parchment papers and roll. No chilling required. And add the toppings and bake..
The most delicious, breakfast worthy, stomach filling Galette will be ready.
