Hazelnut flour is here.

Switching out some of the all purpose flour in baked goods with hazelnut flour is a great way to boost protein and complex B vitamins.

First up we’re utilizing those overripe bananas on the counter.

The dry ingredients are combined, the wet ingredients are mixed and then incorporated into each other.

A few chocolate chips never hurt anyone.

The batter is poured into a loaf pan and baked for about 45 minutes until golden brown.

The hazelnut flour adds nice flavor and texture.

Bake for 40-50 minutes.

Let cool on a wire rack and turn out to cool completely before slicing.

You can probably find hazelnut flour in your local grocery store or you can purchase it online…try nuts.com.

Next, we are crafting a gallette, which is essentially a free form tart.

A few ingredients go into making the dough.

IMAG0863

Butter is cut in…

until it’s crumbly.

IMAG0868

The dough is then gathered into a ball…

and wrapped with plastic wrap to chill in the refrigerator for a while.

After it’s chilled, the dough is rolled out and an assortment of berries is piled in the middle and baked.

The final product is lightly browned, fragrant and juicy.

A dusting of powdered sugar brings it all together.

Mixed Berry Gallette

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup hazelnut flour
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 1/4 cups mixed berries
  • confectioners’ sugar for decoration

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Whisk flours, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter and add water until it becomes a sticky dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for about an hour.

Roll dough out on a floured surface until it is about ten inches round or 1/8 inch thick. Transfer to a baking sheet. Pile berries in the center leaving about an inch on the sides. Wrap the dough over the berries, pleating the dough as you go, leaving the center open.

Bake for 30-35 minutes. Let cool. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and enjoy!
