Aussie Bites

Costco was my favorite part of being 24 and still living with my father, that and not paying rent. When we’d get to the store I’d throw 4 boxes of Aussie Bites into the cart and call it a successful trip. Now that I’ve moved out, and become a full-fledged grown-up 😉 , I buy my big box stuff online and I can’t find Aussie Bites at our grocery store; plus I looked up the ingredients online and they’re really not as healthy as I thought.. tons of sugar!

So I made a vegan, gluten-free version with no added sugar that is way better than the ones you buy in stores. Don’t be afraid of the long list of ingredients, they’re all really good for you and packed with protein.
