· 250g tinned pears

· 40g ground almonds

· 10tsp sweetener

· 2 medium eggs

· 150ml soya milk

· 1½ tbsp soya single cream

· ½ tsp vanilla bean paste or vanilla essence

· Almond flakes and icing sugar to decorate


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease an ovenproof dish then slice the tinned pears and arrange them neatly in the dish. In a bowl, whisk two eggs until aerated and add sweetener and vanilla bean paste into the mixture. Stir in ground almonds and mix. Pour in soya milk and soya single cream while stirring. Pour the entire mixture on top of the pears in the dish, and place in the oven for 35-40 minutes, or until cooked. Sprinkle almond flakes on the flan and return to the oven for a further 15 minutes. Use a skewer to check the centre of the flan, which should come out clean if cooked.
