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?
-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?
