Aussie Bites

These are mini breakfast muffins.  They are sold at Costco foods.  I found this recipe online that claims to be from the source.  I do think they are less dense and  slightly different from the originals.  Nonetheless, they are delicious and perfect for a snack on the go!  I have finals this week and was in need of some easy snacks to keep the body and brain functioning.  I believe I will try a few modifications for the next go round.  Enjoy!

Aussie Bites

2 cups rolled oats
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour ( 1/2 cake flour (3/4c to 1/4 c cornstarch) to 1/2 all purpose)
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup flaxseeds
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1 cup finely chopped dried fruit (apricots, raisins, dates, figs, cranberries, etc.)
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons hot water
3 eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 350F.
Stir dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Melt honey and butter together. Mix baking soda and salt with hot water and add to butter mixture. Stir in vanilla. Combine butter mixture with dry ingredients, add eggs, and mix well.
Use a tablespoon to drop the batter into lined or lightly-greased mini muffin tins. Flatten the tops.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350F or until golden. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 5 minutes; finish cooling on wire racks.


  1. Mmm, can you post the recipe?? Looks tasty ;)

  2. I loved these, the cookies, and the other food you brought to Mom while she's recuperating. Thanks for all your help and Trulan coming to our aid with the computer problems. You're the best cookie-maker! Love, Pa

    1. Thanks Pa, I am pleased you liked them. I thought they were a tad dry. You are welcome, although it wasn't much and I do hope she is recuperating well. Love, Frog
