This persimmon toast is made with almond butter, fresh persimmons, granola, almonds, and a drizzle of honey and is a healthy breakfast toast option.
Today we’re finally eating persimmons in a recipe I like to call persimmon toast, aka the recipe that isn’t technically a recipe. It’s toast, after all. But, persimmons have always kind of intimidated me, and I was determined to make something with them. Before I start making some sort of fancy persimmon layered cake (<<not the worst idea), I wanted to make something simple like toast.
Do you eat persimmons? They were never a fruit I ate growing up; I don’t think I tried my first one until last year. Yes, really! I’m not going to sit here and say they’re my favorite fruit—I feel like they don’t have a strong taste—but they pair really well with almonds and honey. Eating persimmons in the form of persimmon toast is a great way to squeeze some fruit into your morning.
I can’t write this post without mentioning that OH MY GOD it’s almost Christmas! Miguel and I are currently in DC with his family, just hanging out and visiting all his relatives. Well, technically they’re all coming over to his parent’s house, which makes things a little bit easier and less stressful for us in terms of traveling. In addition to seeing his family, we’re hoping to see his best friend while we’re there too. I hope you’re enjoying this weekend before the true craziness of the holidays sets in!
You know I like an easy-to-prepare breakfast recipe. Likewise, this persimmon toast recipe is quite simple. I used almond butter, persimmons, sliced almonds, honey, a little granola, and hemp seeds. Many of these ingredients were things that I had on hand; for the granola, I simply used my favorite ginger-flavored granola, but you could use plan or cinnamon-flavored or whatever kind you want. Similarly, any nut butter should work in this recipe.
See? It’s a recipe that’s completely customizable. My goal with this is to simply get you to try persimmons if you never have. If you make this recipe, I’d love to see your creation!
