Apple Clafoutis (Paleo & SCD)

Well Winter has hit!  We are having some gorgeous sunny days, but freezing cold nights.  Pudding is just what we need!

I didn't know this dessert was called a clafoutis.  I just remembered I used to make a fruit dessert that used lots of milk when I was growing up.  

From Wikipedia: 'A Clafoutis is a baked French dessert of black cherries arranged in a buttered dish and covered with a thick flan-like batter. The clafoutis is dusted with powdered sugar and served lukewarm.'

Well, I had lots of almond milk to use up and thought I'd give this recipe from Taste a try with quite a few substitutions.

Apple Clafoutis
Preparation time: 5 mins
Cook time: 60 mins
Total time: 65 mins
Serves: 6 
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon macadamia nut oil
  • 1 + 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 770g tin pie apple 
  • Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. (350F/320F)
  • Grease a 6 cup-capacity ceramic baking dish.
  • Combine flour, honey and eggs in a bowl. Stir to combine. 
  • Add oil, almond milk and spices. Whisk to combine.
  • Place pie apple in prepared dish. Add milk mixture. 
  • Bake for around 60 minutes or until just set.  
My family loved this!  The original recipe didn't use as much fruit, which is why I think theirs took only 40-45 mins to cook.  


  1. Can I use coconut oil in place of the macadamia nut? This looks very good! Also, what is tin pie apple?

    1. Yes, melted coconut oil would work well. I wrote this recipe before I discovered coconut oil. :)
      In Australia, we can buy tins of Granny Smith apple that are precooked and perfect for pies. Hope that helps. :)
