So I had a pint of strawberries in my refrigerator for almost a week now and I'm here thinking, I need to do something with these strawberries, either add them to my smoothie or prepare a bread or freeze them.

I just couldn't start this new week without doing something with this pint of strawberries so I decided to pair them with 4 very ripe bananas that I had sitting on the counter.

Would you believe that the minute I went into the kitchen and started gathering my ingredients, my husband walked in and took up the bananas to throw in the compost, saying that he has to throw them out before fruit flies start eating them?

Anyway, I end up making 1 regular gluten, free vegan banana bread, and this Strawberry Bread Recipe. It kind of reminded me of my Berry Banana Bread and my Upside Down Banana Cake Recipe.

This non-dairy strawberry bread recipe turned out so delicious, I just had to share it with you all. Daevyd had 2 slices and I got his seal of approval.

How To Make Strawberry Banana Bread

It is very important to use very ripe bananas when making your banana bread, they should be speckled and very sweet.

My strawberries were still looking fresh, had no mold and they were exceptionally sweet. So I would recommend you use fresh, mold-free and sweet strawberries.

I used Pillsbury Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour but you can try your favorite gluten-free flour blend. I also love to use ground flaxseeds as an egg replacer but for lighter color baked goods I love to use the golden kind.

First I mash the bananas and trim hull and chop strawberries and set them aside. Next, I mix all the liquid ingredients plus the flaxseeds in a bowl, then I add the dry ingredients and mix well.

Then I stir in the mash bananas and chopped strawberries. Scoop into a prepared baking pan and bake for 70 minutes, it depends on your oven or size of your baking pan how long it will take, so start checking around 60 minutes.

Banana bread is done when you tap the top and it doesn't sink in, I also insert a toothpick to make sure it comes out clean.

    Hi! This looks super delish! Can you please tell me what size loaf pan you used? Basically this is for cooking time only, as the size affects how long it’s cooked for!

    Hey thanks I surely want to make this. Can I use frozen strawberries instead of fresh

    • Michelle Blackwood
      May 31, 2018

      Rozina, I haven’t tried it with frozen but it should work. I would just thaw the strawberries before I add them.

    Will coconut sugar work as a substitute for cane sugar or will it taste different? Thank you in advance!

    • Michelle Blackwood

      It will definitely work, the color will be darker. You might need to add extra depending on the sweetness of your strawberries.

    Can this recipe be made without the flax seeds?

    • Michelle Blackwood
      May 4, 2018

      Chiquila, I didn’t try the recipe without so I cannot say for certain how it would turn out but if you try please let me know. Looking at the recipe the banana should suffice to add structure and moisture.

    I made this following the recipe exactly. I did have to add another 1/4 cup almond milk because the batter was too dry and wasn’t coming together. But besides that, very good. Very moist and rich after baked!
