Substitutions in pumpkin bars recipe (banana, apple, sweet potato---oh my)

ChristinaMason | | Dec 14, 2009 03:55 AM

I recently made a couple batches of pumpkin bars (using this recipe: http://culinspiration.wordpress.com/2... ), and it got me thinking about possible substitutions to make other kinds of bars using the same recipe as a template.

I was wondering whether substituting 8 oz. of the following might work?

-mashed banana
-apple sauce/puree (possibly cooked down if more watery than pumpkin puree
)-cooked zucchini puree
-sweet potato puree (water added if too thick)
-any other ideas?

I like the idea of having a go-to recipe that can be tweaked with the flavors of whatever is in season or available. Any thoughts, suggestions, or warnings?
