gluten free feijoa sticky coconut muffins

A big ups to Geoff Scott for creating the original recipe which I have then paleofied (it’s a word promise). They are now gluten, grain and dairy free and still just as delicious! Not to mention easier to make.


    1. Heat oven to 210C (this high heat surprised me, but who am I to argue with the experts)
    2. Whisk eggs and add milk
    3. Place the HGG Vanilla Baking Mix and the baking powder in a bowl. make a well in the centre then add the whisked eggs plus oil/butter. Add the feijoas then mix
    4. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups with oil spray (I had no idea you could do this! I never use muffin cups as I find the mix always sticks and I hate leaving behind muffin. BUT I tried this and they don’t stick! years wasted….)
    5. Heat all the topping ingredients in a little pan until melted and nicely combined
    6. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with the batter then top with sticky coconut topping.
    7. Cook for 12-15 minutes until golden and caramelised


Enjoy! I made these 3 times and they went down well with everyone each time. The original recipe can be found here
