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 an Aussie Bites copycat recipe, added some cookie-ish ingredients to it and the result was YUM.

Whole Wheat Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

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.

  1. Hi do you think I could use coconut oil instead of butter? My daughter can’t have dairy, she’s allergic to milk products

    1. Christina hasn’t tried it actually with coconut oil. You will have to let us know how it turns out.
