Clafoutis is a French cherry pie with a crepe-like texture. It's fabulously easy and even better tasting. And using almond flour in the place of regular flour makes it gluten-free!

That's it! The clafoutis can be eaten warm or cold. It will last as long as the cherries, so it will go bad sooner if your cherries were older and vice versa. Generally, try to consume the dish within 48 hours... but trust me, that shouldn't be a problem!
