You know - I think maybe this would be a good dry mix to keep on hand. Leave out the pumpkin, nuts, eggs and oil, but mix the other stuff together and measure it out in jars or baggies. Then you could add whatever veggie/fruit you have on hand - like grated carrots, or mashed bananas, minced apples or pears, chopped strawberries etc. You might have to add some extra moisture with some of the veggies or fruits. Would make a nice treat and change from the run-of-the-mill preps.

Whoops - leave out the raisins, too.
