Banana bread is one of my favorite quick breads, especially with nuts like this Banana Nut Bread. I make it for Madison all the time! This roasted strawberry banana bread is such a delicious variation, perfect when strawberries are in season. Another variation I love is this Blueberry Banana Bread.

I had some bananas that were getting brown and I was really in the mood for banana bread, so I combined the two for a delicious quick bread. You can turn these into muffins if you prefer.

In the past I attempted this recipe with fresh strawberries, but the strawberries released too much liquid when it baked in the oven, which made the banana bread a little too moist. Roasting the strawberries is the perfect solution, most of the liquid dries out from roasting and the berries become sweeter, so you get the flavor of the strawberries in every bite.
