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 got this recipe in an email just as I was wondering what snack I could make for tomorrow. Turns out I had everything, so I whipped up a batch tonight. They were great! Very light, not too heavy, with a nice little crispy crunch. I've never had the Costco version but I don't need it anyway; your recipe is awesome :)
  2. Not a fan of maple flavor of any kind. Suggestions for a substitute? I have had the Costco Aussie Bites. Truly wonderful! I buy two and freeze one.
  3. I have been looking at the Aussie Bites at Costco but never purchased them, so glad to have a similar recipe I can do myself (which means I can leave chia out because I can't have it), YEAH!!!!! Thank you!
  4. These are absolutely delicious and perfect for the kids lunch boxes. Do you think they would work with half the amount of syrup? I used dates instead of apricots and they were a little sweet for me. Thanks so much!
  5. Thank you for this recipe Melissa. I have purchased aussie bites from Costco, but much prefer this more nutritious version. Just made them yesterday and my son and husband love them! I used 1/4 cup of maple syrup, just to see if they would still work, and to keep the sweetness level down. They were very good, but some were a little crumbly if you try to take a bite. Not a big deal though for my guys since they pop the whole thing in their mouth! ;)
  6. I've always passed up the Aussie Bites because of the flour/oil so we are looking forward to giving this a try! On the Quinoa, is it 1/2 cup measured dry and then cooked, or 1/2 cup of the already cooked?
  7. We love the ones from Costco but now at nearly $10 per container its time to make our own. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
  8. I spend a fortune on these at Costco and gathered all the ingredients today to give this recipe a try. I think I will try brown rice syrup in place of the maple. Would love to be successful w/o the Costco version as they have a tendency to drop a product periodically, so I've alway kept a couple oaks in the freezer just in case.
  9. Holy Toledo!! I just made these today and my boys (super picky eaters) LOVED them! And they are healthy!! With quinoa!! Mind blown!!! :0) I used only slightly more than a 1/4 cup of maple syrup And coconut Nector (mixed) and some date paste. They stick together great. I also ground up half the oats and quinoa and raisins and just mixed the rest by hand. Made for a textured cookie - amazingly awesome. Thank you for this. New staple yumminess at our house. Oh! And the uncooked cookie dough was just as good (maybe better. Lol ) than the cookies!! Ha! Tomorrow I may make a double batch just to have more dough to eat. :0)
