Strawberry Banana Bread
This recipe was inspired by my grandma's Strawberry Bread! My grandma started making Strawberry Bread when my parents were dating because my mom liked eating healthy and this was a healthier dessert. While my grandma's recipe was called Strawberry Bread-- it tasted more like strawberry cake to me! So yummy and sweet!
I sought out to make my grandma's recipe a bit healthier, by cutting out some of the added sugars and adding in more whole grains. After much experimenting in the kitchen, I created this Strawberry Banana Bread recipe! This recipe is definitely more bread-like with a subtle sweetness from the bananas, coconut sugar and strawberries. It's yummy by itself or paired with peanut butter and jelly. Enjoy!
