Strawberry Banana Bread

Strawberry Banana Bread 0

Spring is here, finally and around here it means that strawberries will be one sale. Plus before you know it, it’ll be time to pick your own. I can’t wait! Both my grand kids are old enough to help pick them this year.

I have been experimenting putting strawberries in different baked goods like cookies, which turned out now to be the most requested cookie by friends and family. This time I put the strawberries in bread. The bread turned out delicious. I always share my baked goods with the Doctor and his family. His youngest son rated them A+. He’s a picky eater doesn’t even like cheese!!! 

I used local honey instead of sugar and my homemade applesauce in place of the oil.

You’ll need:

2 eggs

3/4 cup honey

3/4 cup diced strawberries

3/4 cup diced bananas

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup apple sauce

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together.
