I first posted this recipe for Strawberry Banana Bread in 2013 and it has been a family favorite ever since. Our family always has both strawberries and bananas in the house so it’s in pretty regular rotation. I try to keep some sort of homemade bread or muffins in addition to fruit in the house all the time to help feed our three boys who have some pretty impressive appetites.
This Strawberry Banana Bread is very easy to make. It stirs up easily by hand, no mixer required. It tastes wonderful warm out of the oven and keeps for three days in an airtight container (although it rarely lasts that long at our house!) My husband likes to eat it warm with a little butter on it and I even let the kids have it for breakfast too!
