A copycat recipe for Homemade Aussie Bites that uses the same list of ingredients as on the package. It’s a true copycat and the best one you’ll find!
This recipe has been in the works for quite a while. One of my favorite free samples at Costco is the Aussie Bites. They are so stinkin’ delicious, but boy are they expensive. I may or may not sneak back for second and third samples. I’d been salivating over them for far too long so I embarked on making my own copycat version at home.
I took a picture of the ingredient list on the box and went to work. After a few attempts, I’ve finally settled on a version that seems to match the original. The funny part is my husband hates apricots and we both hate raisins so the ingredient list actually seemed kind of scary. I tried substitutions and leaving out the raisins, but just trust me when I say you need them. For once, raisins don’t ruin everything!
These bites are full of good healthy stuff and are super easy to make in a food processor. If you want, you can substitute melted coconut oil for the butter and canola oil. It’ll be different than the original, but it still tastes great.
