September 15-October 15 marks Hispanic Heritage Month, a month that celebrates the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we are sharing our take on the traditional Hispanic dessert, flan.
Of course, we gave it our own Partake twist. Flan is typically made with eggs, but we used an egg replacement to the make the recipe allergy-friendly. We also used top 8 allergen free Partake cookies as the crust.
Read on for our Egg-Free Pumpkin Flan recipe. And don't forget to tag us on Instagram if you make it with your family!
