My take on Aussie Bites™ with a little more added to them. Use a mix of chopped dried fruits such as raisins, dates, figs, cranberries, etc.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Mix whole wheat flour, oats, dried fruit, brown sugar, coconut, sunflower seeds, flaxseed meal, chia seeds, vanilla extract, and salt together in a large bowl.
Melt butter and honey together in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, 1 to 2 minutes.
Dissolve baking soda in hot water in a small bowl; add to the butter mixture and mix well.
Pour butter mixture over flour mixture; mix well to combine. Spoon tablespoons of mixture into ungreased mini muffin pans and flatten tops slightly.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

The best flavour of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different brands do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal bread , which not always rise as well as clear bread.
To made this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can start it night before , then clear it off the next day.
