How to Make Healthy Strawberry Banana Muffins From Scratch
Here are a handful of simple and accessible wholesome ingredients you will need to make this strawberry banana muffin recipe.
Bananas become sweeter the more they ripen, so don’t be afraid to use bananas that are totally brown to make these strawberry muffins perfectly sweet.
You could bake with frozen strawberries if you like. Thaw them out thoroughly and drain the liquid before using it.
I personally prefer fresh strawberries due to the bright flavor they are able to showcase.
Almond butter is a great substitution for butter in recipes. They are high in healthy fats and have a punch of protein and fiber to give these muffins an extra healthy kick.
Maple syrup is one of my favorite ways to sweeten a recipe naturally and without using sugar.
Coconut flour keeps the carbs down in this recipe and keeps it Paleo friendly. One of my favorite flours to use in grain-free baking. It will ensure the strawberry banana muffins come our light and fluffy.
Besides the basic ingredients listed here, you can add a mixture of any other fruits, nuts, seeds, or even some dairy-free dark chocolate chips for an extra tasty treat!
How to Serve These Strawberry Banana Muffins
These muffins are great as is, but you can top them with anything your little heart desires.
Top them off with some shredded coconut flakes, melted chocolate drizzle, or my favorite cashew vegan cream cheese frosting to make them more of a dessert recipe.
Even though there’s almond butter in the recipe, you can add an extra dollop of almond butter on top and it has a bit of a pb&j vibe.
Serve it with some tea, coffee, or milk to make it perfect for breakfast, as a snack, or as a dessert.
Can I Substitute Blueberries for Strawberries for the Muffins?
In fact, you can substitute many other fruits for the strawberry muffins.
One of my favorites is Blueberry Lemon Muffins! You can also try raspberries, blackberries.
What are the Alternatives to Banana?
“What can I substitute if I am not a fan of bananas?”
If you are not a fan of bananas, a few of my favorite alternatives to you instead are:
- Pumpkin puree
- Apple Sauce
- Sweet Potato Puree
How to Store Strawberry Banana Muffins?
These strawberry muffins last 4 – 5 days stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.
Storing them in the fridge firms them up nicely and they just melt in your mouth when you take a bite. Pair it with a warm cup of coffee in the morning and you’ve got the perfect healthy breakfast!
Additionally, they hold up really well in the freezer, so feel free to double the batch and make extra!
This makes them a great option for meal prep since you can make a bunch and store them in the freezer for a long time.
Just make sure to wrap them tightly and put them in an airtight container to prevent freezer burn. They keep well in the refrigerator as well, which is actually my favorite way to eat them.
