Wagon Wheels

Your favourite bikkie with less calories

Yes, you heard right we've come up with a cleaner version of your favourite biscuit, the Wagon Wheel!

Original Wagon Wheels are a mass produced biscuit which sandwiches marshmallow and jam between two cookies covers it in chocolate.

Our version is smothered in chocolate and filled with raspberry chia jam and homemade sugar-free marshmallow. These luscious bikkies are much lower in sugar and carbs than a regular Wagon Wheel and we think they taste better too.

They are dairy, gluten and refined sugar free and can easily be made vegan by simply using a plant based Gelatin.

They're ideal to pack as a treat for a picnic or to pop in the kids lunchboxes every now and then.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Bulk Nutrients Fine Powdered Oats or flour of choice
  • ½ cup coconut sugar

  2. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.

Marshmallow

Makes: 330g (more than enough for your 8 cookies)

Ingredients

  • 160g strawberries
  • ¼ cup water or coconut water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 teaspoon rose water
  • 1 teaspoon Bulk Nutrients Sweetvia
  • 2 tablespoon gelatin powder (18g) *
  • ⅓ cup boiling water

* To make this recipe vegan friendly, simply replace regular gelatin with a plant based gelatin like Queen's Jel-It-In.

Directions

Note, we advise you to read these instructions carefully first and have the ingredients ready and organised. These directions require you to work fairly quickly to end up with a light and fluffy marshmallow.

  1. Combine strawberries, vanilla, rose water, water and Sweetvia over heat on a sauce pan. Lower temperature to a simmer until strawberries are broken down.
  2. Push strawberries through a sieve so you have about ¾ cup of pulp free juice. Set aside
  3. Combine boiled water to gelatin and whisk quickly until combined well and gelatin dissolves completely. Working quickly so the gelatin does not set, add hot strawberry mix.
  4. Use an electric whisk and beat for approximately 5 minutes until gelatin has thickened to resemble lightly whisked egg whites and has lightened in colour significantly.
