Feijoa Muffin Recipe


With feijoas falling in warmer parts of NZ, here are some deliciously sweet and moist muffins that are great for a quick snack.

Feijoa Muffins

2 cups flour
½ teaspoon mixed spice
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 egg
100g butter, melted
1 cup milk
1 cup mashed feijoas


1. Preheat the oven to 200° C. Sift the flour, mixed spice, baking powder and sugar into a bowl.

2. Lightly whisk egg and combine with butter and milk.

3. Pour liquid and feijoa pulp into dry ingredients and mix very gently, just to combine.

4. Spoon the batter into greased muffin tins and bake for 10-15 minutes until muffins spring back when gently pressed.
