Early and easy pastries

I'm meeting my rugby team at 6 am on Sunday and I would like to bring something to nosh on. Any rec's on what I can make Saturday and can be easily transported? I've got a ton of brown sugar, raisins, and nuts if that swings any opinions...thanks!

      Granola! Most recipes call for what you have on hand + oatmeal.

        Throw in some flour and an egg and you've got protein-packed friendship bars!

          Got any cream cheese? Sounds like rugelach to me. They are crescent shaped cream cheese pastries filled with cinnamon, raisins and nuts. They can be baked in advance and frozen. Ina Garten has a good one, http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/in...

            I was thinking the same! Very easy to make and transport.

            Soda bread with raisins, banana bread with walnuts, zucchini bread, carrot muffins. Your own trail mix? Oops edited to say, you said pastries...the Canadian in me says butter tarts. :D

                    The only place I recall seeing a recipe for them in the US is in Nick Malgieri's "A Baker's Tour", a very good book of international baking recipes. They should be better known!

              How about a mix of sweet and savory scones?
