Juicy peaches and a lightly sweet baked custard mixture make this Dairy Free Peach Clafoutis a summer treat to keep on hand!
This recipe is paleo, gluten free, and dairy free — and trust me, it's easier than you think! Whip up a batch of clafoutis for your next summer gathering. It's sure to please!
What is clafoutis?
Clafoutis (sometimes spelled clafouti) is a traditionally French baked dessert. It's made with fresh fruit arranged in a dish with a batter poured overtop and baked until set. Typically, clafoutis is then dusted with powdered sugar (although this recipe skips it) and served warm.
What does clafoutis taste like?
The best description I can give: clafoutis is somewhere between custard and an oven pancake. It's firmer than custard or pudding, but doesn't have enough flour to call it a pancake.
For this dairy free version, I did my best to keep it from being too sweet; after all, you get more than enough sweetness from fresh peaches!
Making a dairy free peach clafoutis
Most clafouti recipes use milk or cream to provide richness in the batter. Making a dairy free version meant replacing that richness.
Not all dairy free nut or seed milks will do here! Pick up canned full-fat coconut milk and use that. Without the fat from the coconut milk, your clafoutis risks being eggy and bland.
In addition to making this peach clafoutis dairy free, I also wanted to swap out the flour and make it gluten free as well. I found that swapping flour 1 to 1 with cassava flour resulted in a flat, too-gummy clafoutis. So I subbed 1 tablespoon of cassava flour with almond flour and had spectacular results. This one's a keeper for sure!
How to make clafoutis with any fresh fruit
As you may suspect, it's pretty simple to create a clafoutis with any berry or stone fruit!
If using berries, just swap the peaches out for a cup of fruit (blueberries, pitted cherries, strawberries, etc).
If you'd like to swap in another stone fruit, like nectarines or plums, prep the same way. With nectarines, you can swap 1 to 1. With plums, you may need to use an additional plum.
Apples and pears can also work well in a fall or winter clafoutis.

A perfect summer treat! Feel free to swap the peaches for another stone fruit or berries.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a shallow 1 ½ quart baking dish with ghee or coconut oil. Arrange the peaches in the bottom of the dish.
- Warm the coconut milk in a saucepan over medium heat until small bubbles appear at the edges. Do not boil! Alternatively, you can heat the coconut milk in a microwave-safe dish for 30 seconds at a time until melted and smooth.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer (or using a hand mixer/whisk and large bowl), beat together the eggs, coconut sugar, and salt until creamy. Add the cassava flour and mix until incorporated. Add the coconut milk and vanilla extract, beating until smooth. Pour the batter over the peaches and bake for 45-55 minutes, until browned. Transfer the pan to a rack to cool, then serve warm.
