Vegan Persimmon Banana Muffins

We got another batch of persimmons today, so I decided to share this persimmon muffin recipe. I made some irresistible Vegan Persimmon Cookies with the last batch of persimmons and everyone loved them. 

These healthy persimmon banana muffins are the perfect grab and go snacks, they are filling and flavorful. Persimmon is a winter fruit that is usually plentiful in major supermarkets and Asian markets in the US as early as October but I'm so happy that here in Florida we get to enjoy tree-ripened persimmons earlier than the rest of the country.

Ingredients for persimmon banana muffins

Vegan Persimmon Banana Muffins Ingredients

  • Persimmon - Hachiya variety that is ripe until soft to touch like a ripe tomato is the best. 
  • Banana - mash ripe bananas, I love to use very ripe ones that have black specks. 
  • Coconut Oil - melted coconut oil.
  • Vanilla - I love to use pure vanilla. 
  • Ground Flaxseeds - I use golden flaxseeds, I make my own by grounding flaxseeds in a blender. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
  • Oat Flour - use certified gluten-free oat flour for a gluten-free diet. You can make your own oat flour by blending rolled oats in a high-speed blender.
  • Almond Flour - Almond flour is made by blanching almonds then processing into a flour, it adds a light texture to the muffins, for best results, use almond flour instead of almond meal. Almond flour can be purchased in health food stores, major supermarkets or online. 
  • Organic Cane Sugar - used as a sweetener, you can substitute with coconut sugar for a healthier alternative.
  • Baking Powder - I love to use aluminum-free baking powder, it is found in major supermarkets, online or in the health food stores.
  • Spices - Cinnamon and nutmeg added for a flavor boost, for a milder alternative, use coriander and cardamom.
  • Salt - a little salt added to round off the flavors, I used Himalayan sea salt.
