Banana bread is one of my favorite quick breads. I make it for Madison all the time! This Roasted Strawberry Banana Bread is a delicious variation – perfect when strawberries are in season. Some other healthy banana bread recipes I love are this Blueberry Banana Bread and Banana Cranberry Bread.

Why You Should Roast the Strawberries

I had some bananas that were turning brown, and I was really in the mood for banana bread, so I got to work creating a new quick bread recipe. I initially attempted this recipe with fresh strawberries, but the strawberries released too much liquid while baking, making the bread a little too moist.

Roasting the strawberries was the perfect solution. Most of the liquid dries out from roasting, and the berries become sweeter. You get the flavor of the strawberries in every bite of this moist banana bread.

According to Healthline, strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese and also contain decent amounts of folate (vitamin B9) and potassium.

How to Store and Freeze Strawberry Banana Bread

You can store the strawberry banana bread in an airtight container on the counter for one day, but it will last up to 7 days in the refrigerator.

You can also freeze the banana bread for up to 3 months. Slice the cooled bread, tightly wrap the individual pieces with plastic wrap or foil, and freeze in one large zip-locked bag. You can thaw the slices in the refrigerator or microwave for 30 to 45 seconds until warm.

Strawberry Banana Bread Variations:

  • Muffins: Make strawberry banana bread muffins – bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Applesauce: If you don’t have any applesauce, substitute it with more bananas.
  • Nuts: Add 1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans.
  • Spices: Add a little cinnamon

  1. How many calories would this be if you used a muffin tray instead? How thick are the slices supposed to be?

  2. Could you use raspberries or blackberries and roast them?

  3. I made these as muffins and iM OBSESSED! I know its 88 kcal a slice, but how much you think for a muffin?
