Strawberry Banana Bread is a delicious way to use up overripe bananas and strawberries.
We love eating banana bread in our household. I had bananas and strawberries that needed used so I decided to make Strawberry Banana Bread. To easily mash bananas, I always put the ripe bananas in a baggie and squeeze them to mush. It’s fast and I can just pour out the mashed bananas.
After I mashed the bananas, I cut up the strawberries and set them aside. In a bowl, I combined the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
In a large bowl, I mixed together the eggs, white sugar, brown sugar, vegetable oil, applesauce and vanilla extract. I added in the strawberries and bananas.
Then I added in the flour mixture just until blended. I poured the batter into two 9×5 inch pans. I baked them for 1 hour until they were done. I used my Good Cook Ceramic Loaf Pan which baked it great plus it made my bread more presentable. The Strawberry Banana Bread is a great snack and a nice twist on banana bread.

Love banana bread but have never tried it with strawberries, looks delicious! Great tip on mashing bananas too!
It’s so much easier than trying to mash bananas with a fork in a bowl.
Just squeeze it in the bag and pour it out 🙂
Looks delicious! Two of my favorites – strawberries and bananas! Pinned to Pinterest…stopping by from It’s a Keeper’s linky!
Hello! thanks for the recipe, it looks delicious. I do not have applesauce, so I can skip it or is there a substitute? thank you!!
The applesauce is just substituted for some of the oil plus it helps adds moistness. You can just substitute all vegetable oil so instead of 1/2 cup oil, you can use 1 cup total.
Thanks!!! I did it!!!! And it was delicious! thanks for sharing the recipe!!!!!!!
I’m glad you liked it 🙂
