  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut buter
  • 1 carrot grated

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

For the Frosting

  • 2 cups plain greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • Box of dog bones


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray cooking spray in 2 6 inch round cake pans (these aresmaller than normal cake pans), and line with parchment paper on the bottom.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, oil, applesauce, creamy peanut butter, carrot, banana, andhoney. Whisk together until smooth.
  • Add flour and baking powder to the bowl and mix with a spoon. Mixture will be on the thick side.
