How to Make Strawberry Banana Bread
Mix dry ingredients: In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
Mix together wet ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, yogurt, eggs, bananas, and vanilla.
Combine the wet and dry: Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing until they are just combined.
Add in the strawberries: Fold in the sliced strawberries. I like to add a few extra to the top as well.
Bake and cool: Bake the bread and then allow it cool for an hour before slicing it.
Using Fresh Strawberries in Banana Bread
Baking with fresh strawberries can be a little tricky because they bring some added moisture to a recipe, and it’s not a controllable amount of moisture. In other words, your one cup of strawberries might bring more moisture than my one cup of strawberries.

Thankfully, this strawberry banana bread recipe is forgiving.

Tips and Tricks for Quick Bread
These tips really apply to most of my quick bread recipes, but they are good for a refresher.

Your butter needs to be cooled. We are melting our butter (it is the fat we are using instead of oil), but we don’t want it hot when we add it to the other ingredients. If it is hot, it will start cooking the eggs. Take a few minutes and make sure it is not hot to the touch.
Use very ripe bananas. More on this in a moment.
Measure your flour carefully. Scoop the flour from the container it is stored in, into the measuring cup and then level it off. You will need 10 2/3 ounces or 300 grams.
Make sure your baking soda is fresh. If you don’t have baking soda that can do it’s job your bread won’t turn out right. To test it, drop a little in a small cup of a vinegar and make sure it reacts immediately.
Overripe Bananas for Banana Bread
Have you noticed that most banana bread recipes say to use over ripe bananas? Ever wonder why?

It certainly is in part because of the consistency. They are easy to mash up and blend into the dough. It is also because the more a banana ripens, the sweeter it becomes. Most banana bread recipes account for this when they add in sugar.

Therefore, you can certainly put yellow bananas in the oven to bring them to the right consistency. You will want to do 350 degrees for 15 minutes. But you will end up with bread that isn’t as sweet as you were hoping for.

It its better to just go with naturally over ripe bananas.

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (10.625 ounces or 300 grams)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
2 eggs beaten
3 very ripe bananas mashed well
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup diced strawberries (4.8 ounces)
