Have you ever tried those “Aussie Bites” from Costco? SO addicting. They’re like little mini cakelets (that’s a word in my books) filled with all sorts of flavourful ingredients like oats, coconut and dried fruit. I consider them to be mostly healthy, and they are such a filling snack. I thought they’d be fun to try to recreate, but in a cookie format. I modified a Aussie Bites knockoff recipe, added some cookie-ish ingredients to it and the result was YUM.

These make a filling, flavourful snack and they’re also great for breakfast! The whole wheat flour, oats, coconut and apricots make them taste so good, and they keep really well.
