A delicious and healthy muffin recipe using persimmons, apples, or peaches. These muffins are packed with antioxidants, fiber, and healthy fats, making them a great breakfast or snack option.

This is clearly a seasonabl recipe, but so good expecially given how persimmons take a bit of time to ripen, but once they do they need to be attain ASAP before they get all mushy and brused. In the summertime, you can replace the persimmon with peachers, and you can use apples all year around! You just need to whisk the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and both sugars together in a large bowl.

The good thing about these type of muffins is that they can be a backup “grab a muffin on your way out the door” breakfast, or just a snack in the middle of the day, perhaps when you accidentally skipped lunch. However, unlike the sugary and nutritionless version you would get at a normal bakery, these muffins have antioxidants, plenty of fiber, and healthy fats to keep you full!
