Roasted ground Wattleseed has a diverse number of uses in the kitchen, from baking to thickening of sauces and casseroles, to ice cream.

A beautiful nutty, mild coffee flavour. Can be mixed with regular coffee for a flavour boost. Delicious used to flavour chocolate, cheesecake or meringue.

By dark-roasting Wattleseed, the most delightful aroma of nutty fresh roasted coffee is released and can be used as a beverage or as an addition to chocolate or desserts.

Every week we make a bread in the breadmaker always adding a teaspoon of ground wattleseed.

Aboriginals used wattle seed to make a type of flour, cooking this often in ovens made in a hole in the ground using hot coals and hot rocks.

Wattleseed contains potassium, calcium, iron and zinc in fairly high concentrations. With a low glycemic index, they are good for diabetics, providing a steady stream of sugars that do not produce sudden rises in blood glucose levels.

Most vitamins are found except for C, B12 and riboflavin. they are high in fibre – over 30%.

    Excellent quality, great service, speedy easily tracked delivery. Loved how it came with small tag on how it can be used and where it came from :) Highly Recommend!

    I was surprised at how much like coffee it smelt, upon opening the packet. I made a cheesecake using 2 tablespoons of wattleseed...I think 1 tblsp would have been enough! A little bit goes a long way

    Ground wattleseed - good in small doses

    Posted by Bobbie Taylor on 24th Oct 2018

    We used the ground wattleseed in a school cooking program. It was put into pizza base and damper during some indigenous cooking classes. It was a hit. I probably would have liked it to be more ground down (ie. Wattleseed flour) so was a little surprised at how coarse it was when it arrived.

    Taste Australia response: It is best to soak this ingredient before use if you plan to use it in a short bake or grind it down finer yourself. A long bake (eg bread) gives it time to soften.

    Wonderful Wattle Seed

    Posted by Maree Bennett-Bonell on 25th Jul 2018

    We couldn't find wattle seed anywhere locally, so the team from Taste Australia sent us an express package for our Naidoc themed cooking. We loved the product and it arrived the very next day. Taste Australia you saved us. 2 BIG thumbs up from our team to yours.

    Exactly what I was after in a wattle seed (not a powder that I have received from other companies!)
    Thanks Taste Australia for prompt delivery too.

    Ingredients with a difference

    Posted by Melanie on 6th Apr 2018

    I had made my own Quandong Jam and came across the Wattleseed & Quandong cockles recipe on your website. It looked amazing and I just needed to make them. They were a huge hit and it’s a great way to introduce native ingredients to people who otherwise wouldn’t have access to them. Beautiful flavour addition to my pantry, smell was just as described.
