Strawberries and banana go together like a perfect pair in anything from smoothies, juices, desserts, and other sweet treats

But never banana bread. Why not? Today that changes! This Strawberry Banana Bread is one of my newer favorites. Especially right now during summer strawberry season.

Banana bread is fast becoming a staple in my house. And being as I had plenty of bananas that needed to be used up, I thought… why not make another loaf? This time around I added in a LOT of fresh strawberries to an already fairly thick batter. The end result was a perfectly delicious Strawberry Banana Bread!

Do not mind the thick batter of this bread. It’s supposed to be that way! As the bread bakes, the strawberries release their natural juices and the batter will gain its moisture from that instead! So don’t fear the batter being so thick.

I served my bread with more fresh strawberries and banana slices. Maybe a little pat of butter too!
