Fall Morning Oatmeal

Here’s a breakfast recipe that is quick, simple and every delicious bite tastes like a fresh fall morning! If you haven’t tried a persimmon before: you really must! I had never tried one until I came to California. Fuyus are my favorite variety. They have a sweet cinnamon flavor, and are ripe when still crisp.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Oatmeal
  • 1 banana chopped
  • 1 Fuyu persimmon, chopped (or 1 Hachiya persimmon very soft with skin removed)
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 Tablespoon pumpkin butter (I bought mine at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

Optional ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseeds
  • 1 Tablespoon hemp protein powder

Directions:

  1. Mix dried oatmeal, banana, persimmon, and milk. Heat in the microwave for about 3 minutes if Quick Cooking Oats, longer if Old-Fashioned.  Oatmeal should be warm and soft, and fruit should smell sweet and delicious.
  2. When cooked, stir in pumpkin butter, walnuts, cinnamon and optional ingredients. Enjoy!

    Just made this recipe with a Haychia persimmon! It was even better than using the Fuyu! (To learn the difference between the types, see https://nicolegeurin.wordpress.com/2009/10/12/the-persimmon-post/)
