One thought on “Feijoa Bran Muffins

  1. I made these yesterday – was surprised at the amount of sugar, which I thought was way over the top, so left it out. The resulting muffins have an excellent flavour and texture, with the golden syrup adding sweetness. I think 1/4 cup sugar for those with a sweeter tooth would be as much as you’d need. When sugar consumption is such an issue I feel we should re-think the amount of sugar in recipes like this.
