Strawberry Banana Bread with Crumb Topping Recipe (Dairy-Free)

Alana shared this as a spring springtime dessert, using dairy-free yogurt for added moisture. She also says, “Today I made this strawberry banana bread with an Omega 3 brand flour that has a great deal of wheat in it. But, in my recipe I have regular flour because most people may not appreciate the extra fiber. Either can be substituted.”

If you do opt for making this a whole wheat quick bread, then you will probably like my Spiced Pear Breakfast Bread and this Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread recipe from Healthy Seasonal Recipes, too.

Serves: 2 loaves

  5. Fold in the strawberries.
  6. Pour batter into 2 loaf pans.
  7. For the crumb topping, add the remaining 3 tablespoons oil to the dry ingredients and stir to make a crumble. Sprinkle over the loafs.

  1. I want to make your strawberry banana bread with crumb topping but I have one question.
    Do you fold in the whole strawberries or do you cut them up first? Sliced? Diced?
    Thank you.

    • Hi Maxine, I would personally dice them (a large dice / chop though). Also, I noticed that this recipe doesn’t contain any salt. I would also add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt with the dry ingredients. Sorry it isn’t more clear. This recipe was a contest entry and not one of my personal recipes (the program defaults my name as recipe Author, too, if I wrote the post). We will have to test it in house and update!
