Feijoa & Date Loaf

I love loaves and I love feijoas. With a fruit bowl full of feijoas, I thought I'd set about trying to make a Feijoa loaf that is moist, delicious and good for you.

The good news! It worked and this loaf is moist, very delicious and a wonderful source of fibre, protein and vitamin C. Feijoas are a great source of antioxidants to support optimal health and healthy blood vessels.

This loaf is moist enough to be eaten alone, or you could enjoy it with a smidge of softened butter. I like to eat mine with a big pot of tea and my beloved tea cosy. A perfect afternoon tea but equally a perfect post-training snack or pre-dinner nibble.

Feijoa & Date Loaf

  • 5 feijoas, flesh scooped out

  • 4 eggs, preferably free-range

  • 1 Tbspn melted coconut oil or melted butter (I used coconut oil here)

  • 1 Tbspn melted honey

  • 1/2 cup pitted dates, soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes, then drained

  • Pinch cinnamon

  • 2 cups of ground almonds

  • 1 Tbspn apple cider vinegar

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C and line a loaf tin with baking paper.

  2. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and process until you have a smoothish mixture and everything is combined.

  3. Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 35-40 minutes or until just cooked.

Enjoy!
