A true copycat for these delicious healthy snacks that uses the same ingredients on the package.
- 1 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup dried apricots
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
- 1/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 24 count mini-muffin pan.
Pour 1 cup of rolled oats into a food processor. Process for about 1 minute until the oats are pulverized into oat flour.
Add in the remaining 3/4 cup rolled oats, sugar, dried apricots, raisins, flax seed, sunflower seeds, coconut, quinoa, chia seeds, and baking soda. Pulse until apricots and raisins are in small bits.
Pour in honey, melted butter, canola oil, and vanilla extract. Pulse just until combined.

Remove pan from oven and let cool in pan on a wire cooling rack.
One completely cooled, remove from pan and store in an airtight container for 4 to 5 days.
*You can also use uncooked quinoa. Cooked quinoa gives the bites a softer texture but if you’re in a hurry or don’t have any already cooked, you can use uncooked quinoa too.
