We love classic dairy-free strawberry bread, but this recipe for strawberry banana bread adds another layer of fruity goodness. It was a “sweet” entry in our March Recipe Madness Contest, created and submitted by Alana. To qualify, she used 8 ingredients or less, including dairy-free yogurt by So Delicious 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.”
