Hawaiian Power Bites

I bought the Aussie Bites from Costco and really enjoyed them. They are a hearty and filling little mini-muffin sized granola bar muffin bite. So I looked up a homemade recipe and found this one. It isn't exact, but it still tastes great. With the coconut and apricots it tastes a little tropical to me, so I call the Hawaiian Power Bites.

1/2 c coconut oil
1/2 c pure maple syrup
1 1/2 c rolled oats
1/2 c roasted sunflower seeds
1/2 c unsweetened shredded coconut
1/3 c flaxseed, ground
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt (omit if using salted sunflower seeds)
1/2 c raisins
1/2 c dried apricots

1. Melt oil and mix with maple syrup. set aside.
2. Put all dry ingredients in a food processor.
3. Combine wet and dry ingredients.
4. Bake in mini muffin tins at 350 for 12 minutes. (we use a toaster/convection oven at 325 for 12 minutes). Makes 24. You could also just press them in a 9x9 and cut into squares for bars, but I haven't tried that with this particular recipe because I love the mini-muffin bites.
