Oatmeal Persimmon Bars. Persimmon is a delicious, juicy fruit that is only available October-February and if you haven't tried this fabulous fruit, you must. I use it in many fall recipes, and am always looking for more ways to incorporate this yummy and nutritious fruit into the menu. Today, we are combining a traditional oat bar with persimmon to give it a touch of sweetness and juicy flavor. Vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
