Blueberry galette – a baby led weaning recipe
I love how the French take something simple like a blueberry pie and turn it into a blueberry galette, which looks so rustic, yet so delicious. And you know it’s going to taste good, even before you take a bite.
The blueberries on top can be easily replaced with other berries of your fancy (or others, like peach, rhubarb, plums etc) and the dough is slightly crumbly, but manageable by tiny hands. It’s a type of shortcrust pastry, if you wish, so feel free to adapt the recipe if you have a shortcrust combination of ingredients that works for you.
This recipe makes use of ground walnuts in the dough, but I tweaked it and used ground almonds instead. Feel free to experiment with it and don’t be afraid to change things.
The base recipe turned out a bit too crumbly for me in the beginning, so I had to add more flour and a bit of water to make it stick together a bit more.
This is a no-egg recipe, perfect if your little one has an allergy.

This blueberry galette recipe can definitely be included in the sweet category, but it can also be made with savoury ingredients, like Cheddar, ham, zucchini and ricotta and so on.
I have served it for two consecutive mornings and it kept well at room temperature. It was still soft enough to chew.
