I love summer, I love berries, and I love celebrating 4th of July. End of story, need I write anymore? But really, in all seriousness there is not much to explain about this recipe except for it came from my love for the latter three things mentioned above. If you’ve never heard of or ever had a clafoutis, think of it as a fancy custard, but a bit less pudding-like thanks to the added flour. While traditionally made from a base of eggs, cream, and flour, I transformed this delightful French dessert into an Autoimmune-Paleo Protocol classic using bananas and tigernut products. If tigernut milk is not sold near you and you can tolerate coconut, feel free to use full-fat coconut milk in place of it. For the berries, feel free to use any you have on hand, or substitute with cherries (my original plan but Kroger was out of them). Overall, this recipe is a true crowd-pleaser, getting a two thumbs up from the older kids who definitely *don’t* eat AIP. My hope is that you will be able to enjoy it with friends and family on a hot, 4th of July day. Enjoy!
