Homemade wholemeal cheesy Vegemite scrolls

Hi all. Inspiro dietitian Liam here again with this week's recipe.

Let’s face it, cheese and Vegemite are a delicious combination and what’s even better is that this recipe provides a delicious combination that’s also healthy. This is a simple, quick and cheap recipe that is a perfect snack for any occasion particularly for school or office lunches or snacks. You can eat them fresh or they can be frozen for later use!

Emotional eating - how to overcome desire

White flour has been swapped for wholemeal flour for added fibre and minerals, low-fat milk and low-fat cheese has been used to lower saturated fat content and extra virgin olive oil has been used instead of butter to increase heart healthy fats. These are a few simple swaps that I have been made without sacrificing any of the delicious taste!

This recipe makes 12 cheesy Vegemite scrolls. (See how to make the pizza scrolls version here).
