Persimmons. What to do with persimmons?
I had never even tried one before we got them in our CSA box last year. I ate one- and they're pretty good! But honestly, it never sounds good to just eat as a snack. So, I looked up recipes. Last year I found a recipe for cookies, and they were delicious! For some reason I was having trouble this year finding anything that suited me, so I made one up :)
I used my Better Homes & Garden cookbook to help guide me, but it looks nothing like the original plain muffin recipe anymore :)
You will need:
2 cups of all purpose gluten free flour
1 1/2 tsp xantham gum
1/2 cup of honey
3/4 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp flax seed
1 tsp chia seed
1 Tbsp water
2 persimmons (about 1 cup of puree)
Coconut sugar to sprinkle on top (optional)
First, warm your oven to 350*
Then cut the tops of your persimmons off, and if you have a hard core blender like a Vita Mix, you are done :) Throw them in and blend them up!
Coconut Spray Oil. Found this at Whole Foods. I was stoked :)
Then, mix together all the ingredients. I did the dry first, then added the persimmon mix. It solidified a bit, so Izzy had some trouble pouring it in.....
They turned out gooey on the inside and crispy on the outside, just how I like 'em! Enjoy!
