Wattleseed (Acacia Victoriae)

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%.

    Wattle seeds

    Posted by Jess on 4th Feb 2024

    I am an educator room leader in a 0-3 years room , I bought the wattle seeds to do some baking with the children. The sensory exploration was particularly special as we continued to embrace our country's heritage and become more culturally aware. In line with this, the children discovered that cooking with wattle seeds is a practice enjoyed by Indigenous communities, as the seeds come from one of Australia's well-known flora. We used this knowledge as inspiration and baked wattle seed Cakes together. During the process, each child eagerly participated, taking turns to measure and mix the ingredients. While doing so, we engaged all our senses - we observed the textures, smelled the unique aroma ( it smelt so good, some if our friends said it smelt like icecream), listened to the sound of stirring, and later tasted our delightful creation, they were so yummy. This experience not only honed our sensory skills but also provided a deeper understanding of Aboriginal culture and connection to the land. Highly recommended this product !!

    Nicer than expected

    This has a very strong smell and taste, you need to be very careful that you don't add to much. We made choc chip cookies with it and it added a very nice flavour.
