This recipe is NOT gluten free because it had oats. In Australia, gluten free is recognised in wheat, rye, barley and oats.

Greer says:

Hi Leonie,

We’ve amended this recipe now to reflect that it is wheat free. We can also highly recommend gluten free oats for this recipe if oats aren’t appropriate for your dietary requirements. Thanks for pointing that out!

Cath M says:

Rolled oats are not gluten free. This is a wheat free recipe.

Sarah says:

This must be an American recipe. In Australia rolled oats are not a gluten free ingredient. Please don’t make these biscuits for someone who is celiac as it will make them very ill. ?

Oats are NOT gluten free! I recommend you research Australian regulations and advice about the Gluten Free Diet. Including oats in a recipe you refer to as Gluten Free is misleading, wrong and potentially harmful to those who require a gluten free diet for medical reasons.

I refer you to Coeliac Australia, where you can get advice to prevent you from making errors such as this in the future. Please do not continue to spread misinformation through ignorance. It is enough of a challenge to anyone newly diagnosed to follow a gluten free diet without the constant bombardment of inappropriate recipes and inaccurate information from sources one would expect to know better.

Greer says:

Hi Kirsty,

We understand oats may or may not be tolerated by different people with coeliac disease, and we’ve amended our recipe to state that it is wheat free accordingly. Thanks for getting in touch.

Susan says:

Made these today for Anzac Day. They tasted good but took about 30 minutes to cook at that temp rather than the 10 – 15 suggested in the recipe.

Thanks for the recipe.

So easy and looks amazing coming out of the oven! The tricky bit is getting it onto a platter/board for decorating! Any hints?

Greer says:

Hi Toni,

Our best advice for pavlova is to let it completely cool before attempting anything with it – the dry brittle shape will be easier to pick up. At HelloFresh HQ, we cooked our pav on a tray lined with baking paper. When it was cooled, er gently turned it out onto a dry tea towel, peeled back the baking paper and then gently lifted up and placed on our serving board.

Nicky says:

I made two, and neither held any height the next morning 🙁

Any tips on what I can use the leftover egg yolks for?
Can they be frozen (in ice cube trays perhaps) for future date?

Greer says:

Oh no Nicky!

This might have been because the inside of your meringue was still soft and was able to collapse – next time, try reducing the heat and cooking for another 15 – 20 minutes to dry out even further. Always store your pav in a cool dark place like a pantry, and never the fridge – the moisture will be too much for the poor thing. Finally, decorate your pav at the last minute – once the cream and fruit is on, the moisture will again begin to break down the delicate meringue.

Egg yolks don’t have a terribly long shelf life – storing them in a bowl with a little water covering them, glad wrapped and in the fridge will buy you a few days. Our favourite use for them is a leftovers omelette, or a spaghetti Cabonara – always made with egg yolks and never cream. 🙂

The biscuits look lovely, though could you suggest another filling? I don’t really like walnuts.

Greer says:

Almonds would also work well here Helen! At this time of year, we’re also partial to a pecan :).

Ivan says:

How many cookies does this recipe make?

Hi Ivan,

We reckon you’ll get about 3 dozen cookies from this recipe, depending on the size you prefer of course.
