How can I add moisture to this?

I made these and they really do taste like a graham cracker- including the dryness. What can I add to make them less dry. I sub 1/4 of the oil with applesauce. Did not want to sub anymore then that on my first try of the recipe. We had to butter them to eat them, but they were quite good like that. i would like to eat them with out butter though since they already have so much oil in them. i guess I could always just sub all the oil and use butter on them, but I'd rather tinker with the recipe. Just don't know where to start. Should I add an egg? Pumpkin puree would probably be good, but would completely change the flavor. What to do?

Would slightly underbaking them help?

Or you could use them as dippers- I know you don't do nuts so no peanut butter, but maybe making some sort of dip to serve them with like a fluffy cream cheese thing, or I know some people mix pumpkin puree with cool whip. Or cream cheese frosting?

Or if you like raisins, you could boil some raisins in a little water and let the mixture cool- softens the raisins and then drain and add in the raisins to the mixture at the end before baking.

For the amount of flour in the recipe that is not a big amount of oil. If they are really too dry I would add more oil. I guess you could add any pureed fruit like a few bananas or something else
