Got this recipe off the internet after doing a Google search, and found that someone had originally bought them at Sam's Club and asked for the recipe ... just like I did! I imagine you can play with the ingredients some, and I plan to try cutting the fat (2 sticks of butter for 30 cookies??! YIKES!), but am posting the recipe exactly as I found it on the net.

I actually loved these! A lot of you are complaining that your bites turned out crumbly. I followed the recipe actually as is and I didn't have that problem. I put the dry ingredients in the food processor and ground them until they were fine. I added only 1/2 cup coconut flakes as I'm not a huge fan of coconut. I used apricots, raisins and cranberries. I only had the large muffin tins so I packed firmly and cooked for about 10 minutes. I let them cool and then placed a large cookie sheet over the muffin tin and flipped. The Aussie Bites fell out of each tin perfectly. I brought them into work and everyone raved about them being better tasting then Costco's. Since then, I've shared the recipe several times. I'll keep making these. I'm ok with a little fat at all as I work out 6 days a week and compete in half marathons and obstacle course races. Great for a burst of energy! I did notice that Costco's adds organic quinoa and chia seeds. I'll probably add in the chia seeds next time.

I, too, was disappointed there was so much butter used, so I tried the recipe using only one stick of butter, or 1/2 cup, then I combined olive oil and canola oil to make up the other 1/2 cup. I would have used all olive oil but I didn't have enough on hand. I followed the rest of the recipe. I made sure to flatten the ingredients in the muffin cups, as the recipe states, and heated for 9 minutes. The recipe turned out great. A couple of muffins, or"bites", crumbled their way out, but that's because I didn't wait for them to cool, so now the crumbled ones I can use as a very tasty granola.

Excellent recipe. I had some crumbling problems, but added 1/2 cup olive oil and made sure to flatten mix firmly in each muffin pan. They came out perfect!
