22 Apr Strawberry Banana Bread
Our disclosure is……. don’t try to bake all of our recipes in one day….maybe even in the same week….. unless you are going to share them with your family and friends. Then do it!
This recipe originally started as a banana bread “family” recipe handed down over generations. It’s always been one of our favorites! BUT come to find out, grandmas used to use an insane amount of sugar! Soooo we reduced the sugar and opted for some sweet strawberries! We’ve made them in muffin pans for portion control because it’s so hard to just eat one slice!
That’s why we suggest making them and sharing them. They are so good, everyone you give them to will love you for it! We also recommend picking your own strawberries!!! Check out our strawberry picking video! We had so much fun making this one!
We’ve also made them for bake sales! Especially in the muffin size or even those mini loaves.
Regular white sugar is filtered through cow bones.
As long as you are using ORGANIC sugar this recipe is vegan! Certified organic sugar is not filtered using bone char.
