Coopie Bites

Coopie Bites were created by the Cook Clan. We have had Aussie bites from Costco and their energy bars as well. Basically I wanted to create a clean mixture between the two and came up with these. The name came from my husband. I must proudly give him 100% credit for the name. :) Cooper LOVES Aussie bites from Costco so we had to incorporate him into the name of course.

Directly on the packaging for Aussie bites it states: honey, cranberries, sunflower seeds, canola oil, and flax seed. Basically I took exactly that and added flour and eggs to keep them together. I have made these a few times trying to get the amounts perfect. Today I felt pretty confident that the amounts I had were good as I ate two Coopie bites straight from the oven. :)

Dry Ingredients:

  • 3 ½ cups oats
  • 1 ½ cup branflakes
  • 1 1/3 cup oat flour (may use all purpose)
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup coconut
  • ½ cup flax seed
  • ½ cup cranberries (dried blueberries or apricots work as well)
  • ½ cup nuts; sunflower, almonds, pecans any or all work great

Mix together in a large bowl; set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9×13 pan and spread entire ingredients into the pan and bake for 18-20 minutes. Allow to cool.

Once cooled cut them into small bites as they are a great snack or energy bar for breakfast or before a workout.

Enjoy
