My take on Aussie Bites™ with a little more added to them. Use a mix of chopped dried fruits such as raisins, dates, figs, cranberries, etc.

I had no idea what these were but decided to give them a try- glad I did! I followed the recipe exactly except I added vital wheat gluten (protein) and a dash of milk to help the mixture stick together more. I used regular size muffin tins sprayed heavily and filled them 3/4 full then patted down. They turned out great! Not crumbly either. Read More

Very delicious (and healthy though not light on calories) but they tended to fall apart after baking; had to eat from a bowl with a spoon. I tried another batch and squeezed them down well before baking; that seemed to help somewhat. Perhaps freezing and then serving before fully thawed would help too. Read More

Aussie bites are my favorite and I was so glad to find this recipe! They aren't an exact replica but pretty close! To get close to the original, use dates and apricots in the mixed fruit. My sunflower seeds have an aftertaste so in the future I might leave them out. These cookies are normally crumbly so be careful taking them out of the pan! Read More

These are the best muffins ever. It is just as good without the butter or brown sugar for an even healthier version. I just left them out without substitutes and they are still great. Thanks so much for this recipe. Read More

I made these exactly according to the recipe and they were absolutely scrumptious! They are as good as Costco Aussie bites if not better. My only complaint is the high calorie count and because they are so good it's difficult to leave them alone lol Read More

Tasty but I'm not sure I would say particularly healthy! I will likely make them again though. Read More

Good but not as good as the ones from Costco. I'm trying another recipe next with the quinoa and canola oil... these are a bit too dry as the ratios are laid out for my taste. Read More

Flavour was good but added some water to help the ingredients stick together. Next time I will do what kmarie 21 did and add a bit of milk and vital wheat gluten to the mixture. Read More
