Note: Low-fat quickbreads like this really benefit from being allowed to cool completely, which is why they often taste better the next day. The crust, which is chewier than breads with oil, will gather moisture and softness over time.

Recipe Ingredients for Persimmon Muffins

1 persimmon, mashed pulp
2 banana, mashed
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. water
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Recipe Directions for Persimmon Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Oil or spray a loaf pan or bundt pan.

  2. In a small bowl, mix the persimmon, banana, lemon juice, apple sauce, and 2 cups sugar, 2 tbs sugar and water. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, except for dried cranberries and walnuts. Pour the wet into the dry and mix just until all flour is moistened (do not over-mix). Fold in the dried cranberries and walnuts, if desired.

  3. Pour into the prepared muffin pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15-25 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then remove from the pan. Cool completely before serving.
