Last spring when my sister and nephews were visiting from MN, I wanted to bake a dessert geared towards the kids, but wouldn't be too expensive in case they didn't like it. Noticing how the kids love ice cream related desserts, I thought I'd test this one out on them.

1 pkg. banana flavored cake mix
2 eggs, minus one yolk
1/4 C. each brown sugar, unsweetened applesauce, and juice (orange, apple, or blend)
1 tsp. strawberry-banana extract
12 strawberries, chopped (optional)
1/4 C. each chocolate chips, dried pineapple, and chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 13x9" baking dish.
Mix well cake mix, eggs, brown sugar, applesauce, juice, extract, and strawberry pieces til well blended. Stir in dried pineapple. Mixture will be thick.
Spread evenly into prepared pan.
Top with nuts and chocolate chips.

Bake for 24-27 minutes.
Cool, cut, and serve.
Yield = 24-36 bars

Serving suggestions: Top with vanilla frozen yogurt, light whipped topping, and caramel syrup
