This Strawberry Banana Bread recipe is best with fresh strawberries. To keep the strawberries from sinking to the bottom of the loaf pan, make sure to chop into smaller pieces and toss in flour. If you use frozen strawberries, thaw them completely and drain so your bread doesn’t have too much moisture.

Use the toothpick method to check to see if your Strawberry Banana Bread is done. Insert a toothpick (or butterknife) into middle of the loaf and if it comes out clean, your bread is done. If your bread is getting too golden brown before it’s done, tent the loaf pan with foil and continue baking.

VARIATIONS ON STRAWBERRY BANANA BREAD

  • Berries: This banana bread recipe goes great with other fresh berries like blueberries, raspberries, and cherries. Make sure to toss them in flour before adding to the batter.
  • Cream Cheese:  Cream cheese tastes delicious with Strawberry Banana Bread. Add a cream cheese swirl to the batter or top with Cream Cheese Frosting!
  • Sour Cream: Instead of sour cream, you can substitute ½ cup plain greek yogurt (or a thick non dairy yogurt) with ½ teaspoon baking soda added.
  • Chocolate Chips: Stir in dark chocolate chips or white chocolate chips to add creamy, chocolatey bursts of flavor.
  • Nuts: Give your fruity banana bread crunch by adding in a ½ cup of walnuts, pecans, or almonds to your batter when you fold in the strawberries.
  • Cooking Oil: You can use ½ cup coconut oil, ¼ cup applesauce, or ⅜ cup vegetable oil instead of ½ cup butter in this recipe.
  • Roasted Strawberries: Roasting strawberries makes them extra sweet! Roast fresh strawberries on a baking sheet at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. Cool to room temperature before adding to the banana bread batter.
  • Muffins: Make Strawberry Banana Bread Muffins. Line a 12 cup muffin tin and pour batter evenly between muffin cups. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
