Feijoa & Quince Gluten Free Loaf

As you may have heard I am obsessed with Feijoa’s at the moment.

Possibly because they are in season here in NZ. Feijoa good!

And quinces.

So I HAD to make something with them!

This divine Feijoa & Quince gluten free loaf was the result.

So tart and tangy!

If you don’t have Feijoa’s or Quinces you can substitute with Kiwifruit & Apple. This recipe is dairy free too.

Serves 8-12.


  • 100g vegan butter, melted

  • 2 x eggs or flax eggs

  • 1t vanilla extract

  • 1/4t BP

  • 1t ginger powder

  • 1t cinnamon

  • 11/2C almond meal

  • 1/2C GF flour

  • pinch salt

  • 1/4C ginger syrup (optional)

  • 1/2C coconut sugar

  • 2 quinces – peeled and blended with juice of one lemon

  • 3-4 feijoas – peeled and cut into quarters lengthways, tossed in juice of lemon


In a bowl, mix dry ingredients together. Add all wet ingredients, except the feijoas and stir to combine. It should be a nice runny yet sticky batter. Pour into a greased loaf tin and then insert feijoa’s standing up into loaf batter. Dot into batter so evenly spread out.

Bake in a 180°C fan forced oven for 45 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.

Allow to cool before cutting and serving. This would go well with some coconut or cashew yoghurt!
