You guys… this bread is a MUST try!

Ultra soft, moist and so delicious. ADDICTIVE.  

The combo of  persimmons and coconut oil is magical. In fact, there are no flavorings in this bread – like vanilla extract, ground cinnamon.

Enjoy plain or with a smear of salted butter (Mmm…)

PS. For those unfamiliar with persimmons, they are basically the best that this fall season has to offer. Just sayin’.
