Cook, Eat | Sugarfree Feijoa Loaf Recipe

Tis the season ya’ll – feijoas are back and when you are blessed with a feijoa tree you don’t just get one or two do you?  You get ALL the feijoas, so having multiple recipes up your sleeve is never a bad idea.  I make this loaf multiple times each year, we love it in all of its sugary glory, but, it works just as well with a stevia natural sweetener.  Yay for reduced calories!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. Yum this looks so good! I love feijoas. I've got 4 trees that I planted a few years ago, but they're just not quite ripe yet! Can't wait to get into them and try out recipes like this.

    1. Ours are baby trees too about the same age, they have just gone mental this year with jumbo fruit!

  2. Hi. Would this recipe work for muffins as well? Love the idea of easy to eat kiddie goodies.
