No Fat, Low Sugar, Healthy Persimmon Sweet Potato Muffin Recipe!

I know that’s quite a title but it’s TRUE!

A photography client of mine gave me 6 persimmons.

So we ate 1 and then no one wanted to eat another one, over an apple or pear, so I baked them into something!

They are better than I thought they’d be… tasting like a bran muffin but bit moister!
