Strawberry Banana Muffins

I can’t believe I never thought to make strawberry banana muffins before! This is a great recipe courtesy of For The Love of Cooking. The muffins have a great banana flavor and the strawberries are great to bite into. I loved the extra special touch of cinnamon in these, too. Recipe after the jump!


Strawberry Banana Muffins
I used frozen strawberries and while it would have probably been much better with fresh, I think they were still really good muffins.

Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients by hand so you don’t accidentally puree the strawberries or something, haha.

Strawberry Banana Muffins
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 24 muffins
 
Ingredients
  • 2¼ cup of flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1½ cup fresh strawberries, diced (I used frozen)
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a muffin pan with cooking spray and/or use muffin cups.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. After mixing, gently fold in the strawberries, making sure to coat them with flour - this helps prevent the berries from sinking while baking (if you are using frozen strawberries, make sure that you've thoroughly drained them/gotten rid of as much juice as you can).
  3. In another large bowl, combine the brown sugar, eggs, butter, bananas, and vanilla until mixed thoroughly. Slowly combine the wet mixture into the dry mixture, stir until just combined - do not over mix the batter or you will have tough muffins.
  4. Fill the muffin tray with the batter, place in the oven and bake for 22-25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

    I made these the other day and they are so good! I did use a smidge less cinnamon, and I do think they could be cooked a tad bit more (I’m new to cooking..lol) but they are perfect! It is the exact taste that I was hoping for, thanks for the recipe :)
