Homemade Aussie Bites (Vegan)

Homemade Aussie Bites.  Have you heard of Aussie Bites?  It’s a treat made from Costco.  I made you some Homemade Vegan Aussie Bites!  I have actually never had the real thing, but people in my Facebook group have been raving about them!

So I made my recipe based off the ingredient list.  My recipe is easy, has fewer ingredients, no flour and no oil!  These are seriously good you guys!

You need to try them.  If you like energy bites, you may also like my Almond Joy Energy Bites or my Grain Free Energy Bites. These are a must try!

This recipe is also very adaptable to add in whatever flavors you like.  It would make a great pre or post workout snack too. I imagine they freeze well also, so double the batch if you like.

  1. I made them yesterday and while the taste was good, they are stuck to the muffin liners. And when I tried to remove them, some of the paper still remains stuff to them. Any solution to that. And thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful healthy recipe.
    1. Sorry they stuck for you. :( Oil free recipes do tend to stick to paper liners, so it's always a good idea to spray the liners with a little oil. I use silicone liners and they did not stick.
  2. Thanks Melissa. Do you adding a little bit coconut oil will make them a softer. Mine were not hard but a little harder than Costco. I think they are soft because of butter and oil which is so many more calories. But I was thinking of adding just a little oil to see if that made a difference. What do you suggest.
  3. My husband and I just made our first batch of these and they are really, really good! I think they may be even better than the ones from Costco. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
  4. Do you have a general idea on calories, carbs, etc.? Not a big deal if not, will def. try these!! Thank you for sharing :)
    1. I'm sorry, I don't. :( You can upload the recipe into My Fitness Pal for a rough estimate though. Enjoy the recipe! :)
  5. WONDERFUL!!!! I used dried cranberries in place of raisins as I did not have them. Also used cashews instead of sunflower seeds. This recipe will stay in my house forever!! Good for holidays too and all those folks that have special dietary concerns. Very healthy! THANKS!
  6. I did deviate from the recipe, using cranberries and currants to replace the apricots and raisins, and without maple syrup used a third cup brown sugar and about a third cup water and whirred everything in processor. I added enough water to make it kinda pasty. I used parchment lined cookie sheet and just rolled balls and flattened. Baked about 12 min. I really like these, and will make again using maybe 3-4 dates for sweetener! thank you! (I think the parchment on the sheet pan is a better bet than muffin tins)
  7. These are terrific! finally found a healthy dessert we can all enjoy! I did not have apricots so i used frozen cherries instead. I will definitely be making them again. Thank you for the great recipe!
  8. I made these again today. Subbed coconut nectar for maple syrup, Gogi berries for raisins and added a little coconut oil for moisture. I also used someone else’s suggestion and formed them into 12 patties. Waiting for them to cool. But the smell delicious.
