Why I Love This Recipe

Hello, fabulous foodies! It’s Chef AJ, the Queen of Quick and Easy plant-based recipes. I’m back with another delicious recipe: Strawberry Clafoutis. When I’m not busy creating oil-free, refined sugar-free, and salt-free recipes, I’m interviewing amazing plant-based doctors, chefs, and health professionals for my YouTube show. With my packed schedule, I need recipes that are both simple and satisfying. This clafoutis is just that—it’s made with wholesome ingredients, comes together quickly, and is naturally sweetened. Plus, it’s a wonderful way to showcase fresh, juicy strawberries!

This clafoutis isn’t just a dessert; it’s a celebration of sweet, ripe fruit and comforting flavors. The combination of strawberries, bananas, and fruit-sweetened jam creates a deliciously moist base, while the oats and applesauce add a satisfying texture. Whether you’re a seasoned plant-based eater or just starting out, this recipe is sure to become a favorite. Serve it warm for a cozy treat or chilled for a refreshing dessert.

Key Ingredients

  • Strawberries: Fresh strawberries provide a juicy, sweet base for this clafoutis, making it flavorful and refreshing. They are also rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, and fiber, promoting immune health and digestion.
  • Ripe Bananas: Bananas add natural sweetness and moisture, helping to bind the ingredients together. They are an excellent source of potassium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C, supporting heart health and energy levels.
  • Fruit-Sweetened Jam: This adds an extra layer of fruitiness and sweetness without any refined sugar. Use store-bought or make your own chia jam. It provides natural sugars and additional vitamins and antioxidants, enhancing the nutritional profile of the dessert.
  • Gluten-Free Rolled Oats: Oats give structure to the clafoutis and add fiber, making it a hearty and nutritious dessert. They are also a good source of complex carbohydrates, iron, and protein, supporting sustained energy and overall health.
  • Baking Powder: This helps the clafoutis rise and gives it a light, fluffy texture.
  • Unsweetened Applesauce: Applesauce adds moisture and a touch of natural sweetness, keeping the clafoutis tender. It is low in calories and contains vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C and potassium, contributing to overall nutrition.
  • Unsweetened Plant Milk: This adds moisture and helps to bind the ingredients together. Use your favorite plant milk for this recipe.

The Process

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Start by slicing the strawberries and mixing them well with the jam. Place the fruit mixture in an 8-inch silicone pan.

In a separate bowl, mix the remaining ingredients until well combined. Pour the batter evenly over the fruit. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the clafoutis is set.

Chef’s Tips

  • If you prefer a sweeter clafoutis, you can substitute unsweetened apple juice for the plant milk. This will add a touch of extra sweetness to the dish.
  • Feel free to experiment with different fruits! Peaches, plums, nectarines, or cherries would all work beautifully in place of the strawberries.
