      We made these tasty little gems substituting cacao nibs and hazelnuts for the wattleseed, which I could not find. I also added Splenda as the sweetener. I think using more than a tablespoon of the sub ingredients caused the dough to be a little thick, but they did make delicious chunky cookies which I would make anytime. Hopefully someday I can score some wattleseed and see what all the rage for them is about, as they do sound interesting in a number of recipes. Made for the Saucy Senorita's ZWT5.

      I substituted 1 tbl of cocoa and 1 tbl of ground toasted hazelnuts for the wattleseed. The result was fine, but I don't have any idea how close the taste was to wattleseed. For me, the recipe quantity made about 2 dozen 2-inch cookies.
