Tips and tricks on making this fabulous (Almost) healthy persimmon bread:

Persimmons – Use Fuyu variety. Select ripe persimmons that hard to the touch. Remove the stem end and grate in the coarse side of your box grater (unpeeled). 

Flavorings – There is no vanilla extract / cinnamon in the recipe. That is because the flavor of coconut oil combined with persimmon is really amazing. But, feel free to use any. 

Do not Over mix – As with all other baking recipes, over working the flour develops gluten and results in a not-so-soft baked product

Coconut oil – Melt coconut oil and let cool to lukewarm before adding mixing into the dough.

  1. Just made this and its AMAZING! My mom has a persimmon tree and I was searching Pinterest for something to make with all the persimmons she gave me!
    Thank you!!!

  2. 5 stars
    Delicious!!! I don’t use coconut oil so instead I used canola oil. I also added 3/4cup coconut and vanilla extract. Since I want my friends to try it I made muffins.They are so light and tender. Thank you!

  3. 5 stars
    This was so good! I tripled the recipe and made 3 batches of muffins as well as two small mini loaves of bread. I used whole wheat cake flour instead of all-purpose flour, and used 1/2 cup of honey instead of the 3/4 cup sugar. They are so good and moist and taste like fall!!!! Will definitely make these again. My 5 year old son even said ‘this muffin is delightful!’ hahaha
