A few weeks ago, my mom and I came across Aussie Bites while shopping at Costco. We tried them, fell in love with them, bought them, cleared the box, and then went back to Costco two more times unable to find any more of them.
I was very sad for a few days. Then, my adventurous mother realized that she could make them on her own. With a quick internet search, she found the recipe
. She baked them, and they taste exactly like the real thing!
Now, it's your turn. You will not be disappointed.
This is what my thumb looks like when I don't take off my polish for weeks!
Aussie Bites (recipe from grouprecipes.com)
- 2 cups regular or toasted oats
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 3.5-oz can of coconut (unsweetened)
- 1/2 cup sunflower kernels
- 1 cup dried fruit (raisins, dates, figs, cranberries, etc)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 sticks unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons hot water
- 1/2 cup flaxseeds (not listed on this recipe, but was in original Aussie Bites recipe)
To make, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first six ingredients in a bowl. Melt the honey and butter together in the microwave. Mix in the baking soda with hot water, and add butter to the mixture. Pour the butter mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well. Put the ingredients into a mini muffin or cupcake pan, flatten, and place them in the oven for ten minutes (or until golden brown).
This recipe makes about 48 Aussie Bites, but you will not be disappointed. My mom brought them to a Superbowl party last night, and people were flocking around them like vultures. Make these NOW!!!
