Clafouti is a fruity French dessert. This not-too-sweet version from Chef AJ is healthy enough to have for breakfast.

From The Secrets to Ultimate Weight Loss by Chef AJ

Strawberry Clafouti


  • 1 lb. fresh strawberries, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 lb. ripe bananas (about 3), peeled and sliced
  • 1 10-oz. jar no-sugar-added strawberry jam
  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon regular or sodium-free baking powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened, unflavored plant-based milk
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl gently stir together strawberries, bananas, and jam. Transfer fruit mixture to an 8-inch square silicone baking pan.
  2. In another bowl stir together oats and baking powder. Add milk and applesauce; stir to mix. Sprinkle oat mixture evenly over fruit mixture. Bake about 45 minutes or until golden brown.

This looks delicious. I can’t give it a review because I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m not really sure why this is called a clafouti. This is nothing remotely similar to a clafouti, which has a custardy texture. This is a crisp. Still looks yummy though!

I can’t eat bananas and strawberries, so I made it with blueberries, cherries and mango. Delicious!

The Strawberry Clafouti was very good. I did make a few changes to the recipe. I didn’t want a really strong banana flavor so only used two. I couldn’t find any no-sugar-added strawberry jam so got something similar sweetened with juice and only used about 6 oz instead of the 10 oz and it was sweet enough. My non-vegan (sugar loving) husband liked it too!
I will definitely make this again for myself and family! Thanks for sharing.
