This was a great way to use up those bananas that have been sitting on the counter and those strawberries that were sitting in the fridge! Super tasty and a healthy snack!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour two 5x9-inch bread pans.

  • Place strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.

  • Mix whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, oats, 2/3 cup white sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon together in the bowl of a stand mixer.

  • Stir bananas, eggs, and oil into strawberry mixture; pour into flour mixture. Beat mixture using the stand mixer until batter is just combined. Divide batter between the 2 prepared bread pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 35 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If desired, garnish with some more rolled oats (I only used about 2 teaspoons extra for each one; 4 teaspoons in total). The stick test might not come out very clean at the end because the strawberries tend to fall to the bottom and they tend to leave a certain amount of residue.

Pretty good.. I was able to make one big loaf with this recipe. To the other reviews that said it was missing something, I'd suggest adding 1 teaspoon of lemon extract. It adds a little zingyness to the bread and compliments the flavor of the bananas and strawberries. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

after mixing this up I noticed it didn't have any salt. Didn't care for it at all and I won't be making it again. Read More

Best recipe for ratio of fruit to carbs fat and sugar. Best fiber content too. Used handpicked Michigan berries for gorgeous color. Great texture too. Read More

Like the author of this recipe I was looking for a way to use up bananas and strawberries.This recipe is good and I will make it again, however the instruction to use 2, 9 by 5 loaf pans is unnecessary. You can easily cook it all in one. Because I didn't know better and only had one loaf pan I made half as muffins. Still tastes good but ended up with a short loaf. Next time I make this I will add a tablespoon of molasses as it could use a little brown sugar flavor. Read More

I m on a gluten-free/natural sugar only diet so I used home-ground oat flour instead of wheat flour and I used 1/2 C raw unfiltered honey instead of sugar. I ve got to say this is the best dessert I ve been able to eat with these restrictions. Tasted delicious while also being very nourishing! Read More

Made this recipe and forgot to put in vanilla because it wasn't mentioned in the instructions anywhere. That might be a good thing to add in! still pretty good though! Read More

I halved the recipe and subbed honey for the sugar and coconut oil for the olive oil. You can taste the wheat flour and the oats but it was all good. I think the full recipe would fit into one good-sized loaf pan. Read More

1st shot was awful, but my fault, misread flour amts., and added more to other flour to equal and batter weighed a ton! given 2 therapy grp with mea culpa, they thought it tasty, but needed toasting w/butter, which they lacked! so again tonite, carefully following recipe, and some suggestions, used 1/3 brown sugar, oil and applesauce, and cover berries in flour, BEFORE folding them into pans, used 2 8x4 pans, so am anxious to see/taste, but love the healthy combo, so thx very much Read More
