Persimmon Bars with Lemon Glaze – your family will enjoy these cake-like bars with a slightly sweet lemon glaze.

Pumpkin isn’t the only reason to get excited for the Fall season. The beautiful persimmon fruit typically starts hitting the grocery shelves in early October. And boy does that make me excited!

I wanted to share my Persimmon Bars with Lemon Glaze recipe with you before the Persimmon season is over.  My entire family loves these cake-like bars and it’s unusual for them to last for more than a day or two.

The persimmons, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves combine for a wonderful Fall/Winter treat.  Trust me, you will have a difficult time stopping with just one.

I have adapted my recipe from Persimmon Bars at All Recipes by reducing the sugar, raisins, cloves and salt; added vanilla; swapped coconut oil for vegetable oil.
