Different and tasty! I didn't have raisins in the house (I don't like them), so I subbed in Craisins instead, which were perfect in this. My persimmon wasn't quite as soft as I thought, so it mashed into a very chunky puree which left detectable bits of persimmon here and there (not a bad thing). I topped the bars with Kittencal's Recipe#90142 (with half vanilla and half coconut extract). They remind me a little bit of the Starbucks Cranberry Bliss bars, texture-wise. Oh, and I used chopped pecans for the nuts. Usually I pass over things with raisins and nuts in them, but I would definitely make these again. Thanks for posting! Made for The Honeys for ZWT8
