Whole wheat & ricotta peach galette

Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetThis summer is so sunny and warm, I can only count 2-3 days of rain. That’s maybe the reason that peaches have been great and at a very low price. You may imagine the rest, I end up getting a basket of peaches every time I go to the farmers market.

Beyond being perfect to eat freshly picked, or in smoothies, they’re perfect for baking too. I prepared a peach galette with whole wheat crust and ricotta filling to celebrate summer blossom. It is wonderful the date it is baked and even better the day after. I use maple syrup to sweeten it. It gives a very nice caramel taste and is healthier too, but if you wish you may use brown sugar instead.
