How to Make Strawberry Banana Bread

This recipe for strawberry banana bread is not only delicious to eat, it’s fun to make too! This is technically a strawberry quick bread which means it’s easy to make. The thing that takes the longest is the baking, which is no problem for you, the baker.

In a bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir together and set aside.

Dry ingredients, like flour, in a glass bowl.

In a food processor add sliced banana, coconut oil, coconut sugar, ground flaxseed, cornstarch, water, and vegan sour cream. Pulse until smooth (or leave some banana texture, whichever is your preference).

Expert Tips:

Use these tips and tricks to make this easy strawberry banana bread loaf perfect every time:

  • Adding strawberries to this recipe is more than flavorful, strawberries are healthy too! Strawberries are loaded with Vitamin C, Manganese and even some fiber to sweeten the deal.
  • Always wash strawberries before baking with them
  • I call for using a food processor with the banana mixture. If you prefer some banana texture in your bread, you can hand mash bananas or simply pulse a few times, leaving some banana bits
  • Transform the batter into strawberry banana muffins by pouring it into muffin pans lined with papers. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes.
  • Add some lemon zest for added lemon flavor
  • Consider substituting the ground flax in this recipe with a chia egg
  • This is a vegan quick bread recipe, meaning there is no dairy or eggs. The banana is replacing the roll of eggs in this recipe.
  • I used coconut sugar in this recipe, but you can use brown sugar too
  • If you want to make this into a processed sugar free strawberry banana bread, substitute Swerve or another zero calorie sweetener in place of sugar. Note: there will still be sugars in this recipe because of the fruit, but no added processed sugars.
  • Use a tester and insert it in the bread before removing it from the oven. It should come out clean and then you’ll know the bread is done
  • Be sure and allow the bread time to cool before slicing it, as it will be crumbly at first but will solidify as it cools
  • Store this quick loaf in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • I recommend serving individual slices either cold or heated in a toaster oven.

  1. We have been going through SO many strawberries here. I never have a chance to bake with them! I love this bread, it’s so pretty with the sliced strawberries!

    • We have a whole pack of strawberries from Costco and ever since I read there’s only like 56 calories in a cup, I’ve been going to town on them! Glad to know I’m not the only one. 🙂

    • Wow does that bring back memories. We used to go strawberry picking every year when I was a kid. Hope you have a great time!

  2. This bread is amazing!!!!! Thank you for this recipe. It will be saved in the recipe book!!!!!

  3. I’m getting ready to make this and I noticed in the Expert Tips you mentioned you used vegan butter. I didn’t see it listed in the ingredients. I am anxious to try this. I will be making muffins instead of the bread.

    • Hi Debbie! So glad you’re going to make this recipe. And I love the muffins idea. I corrected the tips section to exclude the use of butter. I tested it both ways but I think the coconut oil is better. Thanks!
