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.

The Wattleseed product was exactly what my son was after for his recipe for Food Studies at secondary school. Flavoursome and fresh. It turned up in good time, but when I discovered it came from Jimboomba, 25 minutes south of where we live, I was a little disappointed in the postage cost.

I found a recipe for ANZAC biscuits with wattleseeds. I used 1 tablespoon in the usual mixture and it was great. Something to make it even more Australian if thats possible!

Try making a chantilly cream with a little wattle seed for a truly authentic aussie twist to a pavlova. Use sparingly its easy to over power the cream and the flavor will permeate over time (check after 20 minutes)
And of course in a tiramisu you can add some wattleseed to the espresso.
Yes I have worked for Red Ochre Grill the original when Andrew Filke tried creative native cookings ingredients in a Melbourne restaurant. Shame it didnt work all those years ago but I learnt a lot and am still cooking a home with things I learnt.

Added ground wattleseed to my scones then served them with lemon myrtle cream and family are still raving about them.

We recently put some into a chicken pie and eventhough only used a small amount the flavour was still noticeable. It is particularly tasty when mixed with cream and spread on quandong jam.

Very easy to make and the icecream was a hit with the young and old.
