Aussie Bites- Make Your Own

Do you enjoy the Organic Aussie Bites purchased at Costco? We do. They seem pretty healthy.

They are a little too sweet to me though. There are several forms of sugar in them: sugar, cane sugar, invert sugar and honey (not including the sugar from the dried fruit). At 130 calories for one bite, that seems a little steep. They have 16 carbs and 8 grams of sugar.  They also contain butter but some of my family is dairy free.

Can we improve upon this? I strayed from the original a bit. My final recipe had roughly 95 calories for one, with 12 carbs and 5 grams of sugar. No dairy. Continue reading “Aussie Bites- Make Your Own”
