These Healthy Peanut Butter Cake Bars will please you and your kids. Made with natural peanut butter and natural applesauce, made without oil, butter or margarine, these bars are a healthy treat. Eat with a tall glass of milk, these cake-like cookies are a delicious treat. And the bonus is that this four-ingredient recipe is so easy that your kids can make it all by themselves.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup of natural applesauce
  • 3/4 cup of smooth natural peanut butter
  • 1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix (parve)
  • 1/2 cup mini-chocolate chips (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.
2. Mix eggs, apple sauce and peanut butter.
3. Slowly add cake mix. Mix in a small amount, and repeat until the entire box is mixed in (usually in six different mixes, especially if mixing by hand).
4. Batter will be thick. If a thinner batter is desired, add a bit more applesauce. If a stronger peanut taste is desired, add up to another 1/4 cup peanut butter.
5. Pour batter into pan. Batter can be spread within 1/3 inch from edges and it will spread out during cooking.
6. Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 25-30 minutes. Cool on wire cookie rack.

VARIATIONS: Mix chocolate chips into batter before baking.

SERVING SUGGESTION: Enjoy cold or warm with a big glass of milk.

gotta agree, Member nursenancy2454

I have to agree with the previous reviewer. I have a suggestion. When I use a cake mix, I use an organic one from the health food store. While this wouldn't change all the sugar and fat (from the peanut butter--still a lot), at least there wouldn't be all the chemicals. The organic mixes sub perfectly in recipes calling for a mix.
