What do Aussie Bites taste like? Aussie Bites have a chewy and slightly crispy texture, thanks to the combination of oats, quinoa, and dried fruits. They are slightly sweet from the combination of honey, coconut, and apricots. The bites are satisfying and filling, making them a great on-the-go snack option for both adults and children and a great breakfast.
Canola Oil Replacement
Canola oil is used in the original store-bought bakery good, but you can also use melted coconut oil, melted butter, vegetable oil, avocado oil, or other similar liquid fats.
Cooked or Uncooked Quinoa
This recipe can be made with both cooked or uncooked quinoa in the same amount. Cooked quinoa leads to a slightly softer end result, but both work in the recipe.
Replacing Apricots or Raisins
This recipe uses dried apricots and raisins. You can substitute these items with similar dried fruits, but you cannot just leave them out. Other dried stonefruits like dried peaches and dried nectarines are great replacements for dried apricots. Raisins can be replaced with dried cranberries, craisins, dried dates, or dried prunes.
