Squash Hermits (Protein Bars)

I got this from Delicious Living Magazine. I made it vegan by using margarine, but otherwise left it as is. I didn't have soy flour, so subbed soy protein powder. This comes out like a cakey bar. Because I am not a fan of molasses, I used 1/2 C honey and 1/4 C molasses but think I might up the molasses more next time. The flavor might change based on what squash you use, but I think it's a great snack or dessert and they said, "packed with vitamins, protein and minerals." You could use whatever nuts or fruit you like. Since my family is not big on dried fruit, I used 1/2 C raisins and 1/2 C granola to make up the remainder.
