Homemade Aussie Bites Recipe

This easy recipe for Homemade Aussie Bites makes the best low-sugar treat! Ideal for school lunches or light snacks.


– 2 Tbsp ground flax seeds – 6 Tbsp water – 3 Tbsp avocado oil – ⅓ cup pure maple syrup or honey – 1 tsp pure vanilla extract – ¾ cup oat flour* – ¾ cup rolled oats* – ¼ tsp baking soda – ½ tsp sea salt – ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut – 1/3 cup dried apricots chopped** – ¼ cup unsalted sunflower seeds Optional Additions: – 1 to 3 Tbsp brown sugar – 1 tsp ground cinnamon


Heat the oven to 350°F. Mix ground flax seeds and water in a small bowl to make flax “eggs”. 

Step 1

Let this mixture sit for 10–15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the flax eggs are thick and resemble beaten eggs.

Step 2

Add the flax mixture, avocado oil, honey (or pure maple syrup), and vanilla extract to a large bowl. Mix wet ingredients well.

Step 3

Stir together oat flour, rolled oats, baking soda, and sea salt in a small bowl. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until a thick, sticky batter forms.

Step 4

Add shredded coconut, chopped dried apricots, and sunflower seeds and mix well. Spray muffin tins with oil. 

Step 5

This recipe yields 7 large Aussie bites, but you can make more smaller ones. Place the Aussie bite batter in the muffin tray and gently press it into an even layer. 

Step 6

Bake Aussie bites on the centre rack of the preheated oven for 12–15 minutes until golden brown around the edges.

Step 7

Let the Aussie bites cool completely before removing them from the muffin tin. I use a paring knife to release the bites from the tray.
