We love feijoa’s here in the Marshall household! Our trees have had an amazing crop this year so I have been trying out lots of different recipes to use them up. Feijoa Bliss Balls, Muffins, Cakes, as well as Pies and Crumbles but this delicious Feijoa and Almond Loaf has to be my favourite.
This lovely moist loaf is super easy to throw together and can be made gluten and dairy free which is really handy. I like that it has minimal sugar in it too so feels like a healthier choice even if it is still a sometimes food!
I am sure I will be making a few of these to put in the freezer to enjoy later on or to whip out for some surprise visitors.
FEIJOA AND ALMOND LOAF
1 Cup of Flour (I used a store bought gluten free baking mix)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of almond meal
1/4 cup of milk (I used coconut and almond to make it dairy free)
1 1/2 cups of mashed feijoas
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Then add the sugar and almond meal. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and milk until they are fluffy. Pour this into the dry ingredients and mix until they are combined. Stir in the mashed feijoa and pour into a lined loaf tin. Bake at 180 degrees celsius for around 30-35 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Enjoy with a cup of tea.
