Aussie Bites

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mary Scheffert

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.
