Feijoa chocolate muffins

We have a feijoa (pronounced fee-jo-ah) tree in the backyard! We are looking forward to a whole season of these babies. For those that don’t know what the fudge a feijoa is, it’s a type of guava and has a strong, tart, sweet flavour. They have bright green skins that you don’t eat and inside is a mellow cream colour. Seeds are tiny and never an issue. They have a short but abundant season here in  New Zealand.

Feijoa chocolate muffins

1 egg
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup milk
2 1/2 cups plain flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chocolate buttons
1 cup chopped feijoas

Preheat oven to 200C. Beat egg, oil, sugar and milk in a bowl. Sift flower, baking powder, cinnamon and add to egg mixture. Add feijoa and chocolate and mix lightly so that it is just combined. Spoon mixture into greased muffin tins. Baked at 200°C for 15 minutes. Nom.

Makes about 10 muffins
