Paleo Pear Clafoutis or Flaugnarde

I keep eating the props… a very annoying and bad habit, when you’re a food blogger and haven’t yet taken the pictures for the blog post!  As with the case of the Paleo Sesame Wafer, I had to repeat this clafoutis in order to take pictures and create this post to share.


Of course, repeating is not a bad thing, as we get to enjoy this delicious dessert twice, which by the way, is even better the day after it is made, when the flavours have a chance to blend into each other. I know clafoutis can be eaten lukewarm almost out of the oven. But if you can wait and eat this the next day, I think you’ll like it even better.


Either way, give this a try! It’s really a treat for the palate.

Paleo Pear Clafoutis or Flaugnarde
Recipe Type: Dessert
Cuisine: French
Author: The Saffron Girl
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 4-6
Makes one 7-in pie.
  • 4 small pears or about 3 cups of fruit
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup ground almonds
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 100ml coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 180C (350F).
  2. In a mixing bowl, with a hand mixer beat the eggs until frothy.
  3. Dissolve the coconut sugar in a few tablespoons of the coconut milk. If needed, warm the milk to dissolve the sugar.
  4. Add the coconut sugar mixture and remaining coconut milk to the eggs. Beat well.
  5. Add the ground almonds and vanilla extract. Beat well.
  6. Finally, add the coconut flour and mix with a wooden spoon. Set aside.
  7. In a 7-in pie plate, place the fruit as you wish. (I used large chunks of pears; but if you’re using other fruit or mixed fruit, make sure it’s evenly distributed.)
  8. Pour the batter over the fruit.
  9. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  10. Serve lukewarm or when completely cool. The next day it’s also delicious.

    Could you use almond flour in lieu of the “ground almonds”? Can’t wait to make this! 🙂ReplyCancel

      Hi Amy,
      Yes, ground almonds and almond flour are the same thing in the UK. I hope you like it! Debra xxReplyCancel

    Thank you! 🙂 Could you tell me how much (in cups or fluid oz) is 100 ml of coconut milk?ReplyCancel

      Hi Amy,

      It’s about .42 cups; 1 cup is a bit less than 250ml. I hope that helps. My measuring cup is from the US and comes with both measurements. Debra xxReplyCancel
