You’re going to love this Apple Galette! It tastes like an apple pie, but it’s much easier to make.
It’s also much lower in points than apple pie. With the Weight Watchers blue plan and purple plan it’s 3 points per serving, with the green plan it’s 4 points per serving.
A traditional apple pie is 12-16 points per slice.
I counted this Apple Galette as four servings but the servings are quite large. You could also make it six servings for fewer points.
The main way I kept this recipe low in points was by using the two ingredient dough instead of a pie crust.
Of course the apples are 0 points, I used two medium sized apples. I prefer Granny Smith apples when I’m making apple desserts.
I peeled my apples but you can also leave the skin on if you prefer.
One thing I love about making Galette’s is they are very rustic, you don’t have to worry about making them into a perfect shape.
How to make the Apple Galette:
I started by peeling the apples then cutting them into thin slices. I did about an eighth of an inch thick, then put them in a medium bowl.
In a small bowl I mixed together the sugar and cinnamon then added it to the apples and mixed it together.
With my apples ready to go I started making the dough. I mixed together one cup of self rising flour (not all purpose flour) with one cup of fat free Greek yogurt in a large bowl. I used a rubber spatula to combine it.
You’ll want to sprinkle some flour on your work surface to keep the dough from sticking. Add the dough to your work surface then knead it for a minute.
Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness.
I put a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet then added the dough. Next you want to add the apple slices, but leave about 1 1/2 inch around the edge of the dough because you will be folding it over.
Once you’ve added all of your apples you want to fold the dough over.
After the dough was folded over I used a pastry brush to brush on the egg wash.
(I didn’t add points for the egg for the green plan because you hardly use any of the egg.)
With the egg wash added I put the Apple Galette in the oven for 30 minutes.
I like to eat it when it is still warm but you can also serve it room temperature.
You can serve it as is or you can add some low point vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, just be sure to add any additional points.
