Soft, luxurious bread packed with fall persimmons, greek yogurt and coconut oil.
This bread is AMAZINGLY soft and soooo tasty!!!
Did you know persimmon and coconut is one of the best combos out there?
So addictively good.
And, greek yogurt for softness <– proven.
Enjoy plain or with a smear of salted butter (Mmm…)
PS. For those unfamiliar with persimmons, they are basically the best that this season has to offer. Just sayin’.
