The market is flooded with citrus of all shapes and sizes. It is so exciting to use the freshest oranges and grapefruits to make my desserts this season. I wanted to make a whole wheat dessert that did not take too much effort. For this Citrus Galette, I made a simple dough using oats and 24 Mantra Organic’s whole wheat flour and organic sugar. Sliced some oranges and grapefruits and made a rustic galette in my skillet. That’s what I love about making galettes- it doesn’t have to be perfect. I call it a lazy man’s pie. It tastes like a pie (and even better with organic products) and takes no work!
This Citrus Galette ends up with a very beautiful flaky texture with a rustic flavor. I also used the food processor to bring the dough together which helps the galette dough come together in a splendid manner and it also helps in the baking process as it allows you to skip being messy with the dough, haha. You can also use the fruits of your choice and I am sure you guys will love it!
