It's that time of year! Feijoas are plentiful and easy on the budget. They are also chock-full of nutrients including; calcium, copper, natural fats, iron, protein, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, zinc and Vitamin C. These muffins are gluten free and while they may not rise like traditional muffins they are super moist and flavourful!
