I especially love to make these with freshly picked berries from our favorite local farm, though these are great any time of year thanks to the convenience of grocery stores! 

Flavored with fresh bananas and strawberries, you’ll be amazed by the scrumptious taste of these healthy strawberry banana muffins.

Make them with your extra strawberries during strawberry season or whip them up in the winter for a sun-shiny taste of spring. 

Our family loves to make these for easy breakfasts or snacks. They’re loved by kids and grownups alike!

What ingredients are in strawberry banana muffins?

To get started making this strawberry and banana muffins recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients. 

  • Butter or coconut oil – both work great.
  • Bananas – can’t have strawberry banana muffins without the banana, right? Bananas add a lot of flavor and sweetness to this recipe. 
  • Eggs or yogurt – have you ever tried subbing yogurt for eggs when baking? It works great for most recipes. 
  • Vanilla extract – a flavor enhancer and flavor addition that’s a must-have for baking. 
  • All-purpose flour – you can also try using a blend of whole wheat or oat flours. 
  • Brown sugar – brown sugar provides the sweetness for these muffins. 
  • Baking powder – the dual-action leavening for baked goods! 
  • Baking soda – baking soda reacts with the acids in the other ingredients to create additional leavening so your muffins will rise. 
  • Cinnamon – just a hint of cinnamon helps bring out the other flavors of the muffins. 
  • Salt -Don’t forget the salt. It enhances the flavor!
  • Strawberries – you’ll want to use fresh and chopped strawberries for this delicious recipe.

Muffins are one of my favorite snacks/treats/breakfasts to make ahead because they really are quick and simple!

My older kids love to bake muffins as well – it’s empowering for kiddos to see and taste the results of their work in the kitchen – and it’s also a great lesson in fractions and measurement.

How do I make vegan strawberry banana muffins?

This muffin recipe can easily be converted to a vegan recipe with just a few minor substitutions. Consider the following subs if you’re looking for a quick and easy vegan muffin recipe:

  • Sub coconut oil for butter.
  • Sub vegan yogurt or an egg substitute for the eggs.
  • Reduce sugar by subbing chopped dates.

Can I add chocolate chips to these muffins?

Of course! I’m always a fan of adding chocolate to just about anything, and these muffins are no exception. 

Gently fold in some chocolate chips when you’re mixing the wet and dry ingredients together. I would recommend using about a cup or less of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, though I’m sure if you had different preferences that would work just as well.

Can you freeze strawberry banana muffins?

Absolutely, you can freeze these strawberry banana muffins! That’s ANOTHER one of the great things about muffins. 

Not only are they quick and easy to make and make-ahead, but you can also bake them and freeze them for a super quick and convenient snack or breakfast!

Keep them in the freezer to pull out when you have company, or individually wrap them up in plastic wrap to throw in lunches or grab on the way out the door. 

To freeze, allow the muffins to cool completely, then pop them in an airtight container or bag and freeze.

You can also wrap them individually with plastic wrap before putting them in the freezer bag or container to make it extra easy to grab-and-go. 

These strawberry banana muffins will last about 2 months in the freezer if stored properly. 

You can also store these muffins at room temperature for up to 2-3 days in an airtight container or bag, or in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Can dogs eat strawberry banana muffins?

While there aren’t any ingredients in this recipe that are particularly dangerous for your dog in small quantities, it is not advisable to give your furry friend foods that are high in added sugars.

There is quite a bit of sugar naturally in and added to these muffins, so be careful when sharing with your pup, and save this as a rare treat or keep it for humans.
