Wattleseed Chocolate Cookies

This is a recipe from a great friend of Saltbush Kitchen, Katrine from Maggie & Kate Café in Buninyong, with the yummy addition of Australian native wattleseed. The wattleseed adds an extra nutty flavour.

It is a great recipe to make with kids but be warned you will eat A LOT of cookies!!!

If you want to ‘step-up’ the choc chips you can use raw Cacao Nibs. Visit the local Ballarat crew at Grounded Pleasures for some. And thanks to local photographer Jo O’Kelly for this gorgeous photo of her biscuits! (She used the cocao nibs). Happy baking!
